Serious catch up...Day 1 May 16 Oscar's Birthday

May 16th, 4am the Edge family embarked on our weekend in Seattle. The kids didn't sleep wink from that moment until late that night. We stopped at the Snoqulamie falls and had some yummy banana/cream cheese sprinkle muffins (with a #6 on top) .
Next stop the original REI. Oscar took on the climbing wall with skills...this is the picture of him hitting the bell at the top of his rope. Meanwhile Daddy picked up some fun walkie talkies, that soon became our fun source of communication throughout the trip.
We ventured down to Pikes Place market, amazing place and yet, I didn't get one photo of the market. Here is the view from the Pier.
We left Downtown to our Yurt at Kyak point, about an hour north of Seattle. We made a quick stop at the Trader Joe's and after a bit of construction, ended up at tour site.
We quickly settled in and made our way down to the beach. We spent the rest of the afternoon exploring the beach.
When Rick picked our Yurt location we were trying to find something a bit secluded. Little did we know that it was quite isolated. To find dinner we had to drive about 10 miles to a small town where we found a little Mexican restaurant for Oscar's Birthday dinner. tasty food and a little hispanic lady who sang oscar happy birthday.
Then back to beddie by in our little yurt. Seriously fun place to sleep and very comfortable.

What a fun trip. Sure enjoyed all the pix. You sure look like your mom Letty!!! BTW- what is a yurt? It looks like a teepee tent, really fun though!!!

Yurt, sort of like a wooden/canvas tent structure. It's a upgrade from a tent because it has a heater, beds and a light.
Very fun to stay in. not to mention close beach access for pretty cheap.
