Camp L-Pod 2009: Days 3&4

3 03 2009

Day 3 was another early morning. Abby & PopPop decided to hang out on Mel’s bed and watch Elmo.

After breakfast, we took a trip out to the Ballard Locks to watch the boats pass through to the Sound and check out the fish ladder. Not many fish passing through this time of year, but it was still fun!

We then played in some of the gardens where Abby met some new friends. Like I said yesterday, she doesn’t know a stranger.

An attempt at a sisters pic. My eyes were closed, it was bright!


there are five girls in this picture!

We also learned a lot about the different types of salmon and their cycle through the oceans and rivers.


is pop pop recruiting a fisherwoman?

Two of the big cedars at the entrance to the locks. She was copying Scott after he went up to feel the branches. She loved the smell.


is it Christmas?

We had a long couple of days. Sometime after dinner we all played in the kitchen for a little longer.

 Day 4 was mostly consumed by packing and breakfast eating. We managed to get some family pictures in!

 I’m so glad everyone made the trip.

What a fun weekend, thank you all for making the journey! Next stop San Antonio! We miss you and love you!

The Seattle weather was almost perfect. It was great sleeping weather in the basement bedroom… Especially on the comfy new bed.

Abby and PopPop found out if one person jumps on the air mattress the other one goes flying. It was always a source for lots of laughs.

We did see one little fish in the fish ladders… a Steelhead I think. It was just hovering and trying to decide if it was safe to head out to the ocean. There was probably some big fish waiting on the ocean side… or birds.

The Texas folks got an education in Seattle. We also ate lots of fresh fish… no Steelhead… 🙂

LOL! We can hunt them down. She must live here by now, right? He lives in Kirkland (NOT the house you guys all saw on tv). We could go hang out at the cheesey restaurants/bars and search for them. They’ll be there for sure 🙂
