I was reminded again this weekend why we live where we do.
For all the times it is less than ideal here, summer in Seattle might be a little slice of perfection.This weekend brought with it our highest temperatures yet for the season, and with that we happily engaged in some serious beach time.
I think of summer here like that long lost best friend.
Maybe you don't keep in touch as often as you'd like, you certainly don't get to see each other nearly enough...but then when you reunite, it is like no time has passed and you think to yourself, "Yep...this is pretty much the best".
That's me and summer here.
And for the record Seattle, right now I think you are the best.
Shockingly enough, neither Nick nor I have ever been to Alki Beach so I was making sure it got put on our list of summer to-do's this year.
Alki's version of lady liberty.
Charlotte was pretty much in heaven with the millions of rocks at her disposal. She definitely did her part to try and get them all back into the ocean.
We later BBQ'd it up at our place...
And topped off the weekend with an afternoon with friends at the Laurelhurst Beach Club thanks to the JOAT hookup!
I don't think I'm ever getting all the sand out of that little swimsuit tooshie.
But I'm okay with that...sunshine and sand is never a bad thing.
