Part of moving to a new area with kids, is visiting all of the local parks.  We were blessed with outstanding weather our first couple of weeks in the Bothell area, so we went exploring.  The North Creek Park is one of the Snohomish County Parks.  We live on the border of Snohomish and King Counties.


We arrived to a very full parking lot.  We almost didn’t find a spot.


The playground seemed new and was loved by Nick and Sally.


The only downside was no shade.  I’ve heard that’s not a problem most of the time.


We also visited the port-a-john.  They were nicely set up for not having indoor plumbing.


We noticed a couple of paths at the park too, but the kids were more interested in the playground.  It wasn’t Nick and Sally’s favorite, but I’m sure we’ll be back.

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been over 5 months since I wrote a blog post.  When I started this blog, I wrote every day.  I rarely missed a day.  Last December, I was tired of writing.  I was tired of feeling like I had to write everyday.  So, I took a day off.  It felt good.  I took another day off.  Then, I got extra busy and it was nice having a break.  I really thought I would only take a couple of weeks off, but the holidays were approaching and then my husband accepted a job – in Seattle!

Craziness ensued as we celebrated the holidays, shared our plans with family and friends, negotiated a start date, traveled on a house hunting trip, put our house up for sale, sold our house, bought a house, moved etc.

Now, 5 months later, we are somewhat settled and I have missed blogging.  So, I’m back.  I’m not going to pressure myself to write everyday, but suspect you’ll hear from me a few times a week.  I feel like I have some catching up to do and we are experiencing new fun things everyday.

Join Nick, Sally and I on our adventures in the northwest!  We’ve already scoped out u-pick farms and have joined a CSA.  I’m excited to share with all of you.
