Well, it’s kind of a beach. About a mile from our house there is a spot along the road with room to park 4 or so cars. Poke around a bit, and you’ll find a trail that leads down to a river-rock shore along the Washougal River. It’s not generally crowded, and we all love to come down here and throw rocks into the river.
Even closer to our house is our driveway. To keep these kids entertained on a hot day, all it takes is a storage container, a hose, and clothes you aren’t afraid to get wet. Jackson, you’ll notice, wisely keeps his distance.
