How did we do it? Mass transit. We are (slowly) learning not to fight the Friday evening traffic by avoiding driving all together. We hopped a bus from campus that took us directly to the ferry terminal, walked on, drank a beer, arrived at the other side where Momica was waiting to pick us up.
After a rainy week of family vacation, I think they were as happy to new faces as we were to spend a few days away. It was a quick visit though!
Friday: Dinner and catching up.
Saturday: The dock, shopping in Port Townsend, playing on the beach at Fort Worden and movie night
Sunday: Ferry, Bus, Home....we actually were home in 2.5 hours!
Nydney wore. us. out. Despite Sara's best effort to wear her out with a lot of running through the dunes.
I just cannot believe she is 5! I was in the room when Nydney was born...alternately trying to count while Momica was pushing and trying not to cry. I didn't do either very well... as a result, I am the family counting joke now. So far, I still count better than Nydney, but that will probably only be true for another couple weeks until school starts.
Anyway, it was a lovely weekend, with LOTS of pictures...funny, I only got one of the top of Momica's head and none of the hubby...hm.
And we had time enough when we got home today to spend some time just hanging out. I made some corn fritters and brownies for lunch, we made and froze some pesto and had a delicious homemade pizza for dinner.
Served with some homebrew and movie, the perfect end to a fun weekend!
