clamming!

grandma erbeck is in town and what a perfect weekend to hit the ocean shores with our friends, the team thomson!  we were blown away by warm air, sunshine, light wind.  while clamming didn't yield the results we were hoping for, we did mange to try surfing, and we spent countless hours in the sand....all of this.in.february.  completely nuts.
a stop in olympia for hamburgers at big tom's. if you are ever there, skip it!

big hams

low tide!

we're really trying to find razor clams!

note: always bring water proof clothing for clamming.  i missed the memo



i did bring some yoga matting cut into hearts for us to kneel on.  didn't keep us dry!

grandma soaking up the sunshine, and keeping an eye on the kids

snack time after our game of sand football. kids vs adults. kids won


sunset. wow.  we drove the car onto the beach. it felt naughty, but man was it fun!

bowling, a bartholomew sport

luca had the chance to go to a birthday party at a bowling alley (yes, bowling allies still exist).  i wasn't able to go, but from the looks of luca's form, he has a bit of the bartholomew/schue gene in him.  his maternal great grandmother would be proud!

rainy days

steady rain. lots of it.  tired of being soaking wet....so here we are, the library.  the kids love it, and the librarians know true by name.
