The next day we headed down to Seaside. Morgan had never been to the beach or seen the ocean before so we were excited to take her. It was pretty overcast during the morning so we decided to walk down the boardwalk by the beach and head to the aquarium. Mason especially loved all the fish and the hands on stuff. Morgie was content to set in the stroller for a little while.
This is a seal exhibit. It happened to be their mating season so we didn't stay for to long. Shane lifted Mason up to look and one seal came up out of the water right in his face. Needless to say it scared him and he was done looking.

Mason loved to touch the sea urchins.

On the way back to the car Mason spoted some puppies on the beach and he ran over to pet them. This kid is way to fealess!
We stopped at the bumper cars and Mason, daddy and Shalese went on the ride. Mason loved it until he got bumped to hard and hit his mouth on the stearing wheel. Then he wanted off.
We found a fun merry-go-round in this little mall by the beach. Mason thought it was so much fun especially when the operator tried to grab his foot every time he came around.
We went to the beach afterward and let the kids play in the sand. Mason loves to dig in the dirt and draged grandma all around the beach to dig with him. Morgan didn't get down too much. She didn't like the sand and the water was way to cold for her skinny little body.
Mason was not about to take time out from digging for a family photo.
Mason got so dirty and wet that eventually he just took off his diaper and threw it away. Who knew this was a nude beach. I thought it was way funny but I wasn't the one who had to chase him down naked and wash him off before he got in the car. We had lots of fun at the beach. Unfortunatly Morgan got her first sunburn. She has daddy's fair skin. After a long day at the beach we decided to head back to grandma's to rest and recover.
Saturday was the Rainier day's parade. Shane and Shalese had started to get sick with the same flu during the night so grandma and I took the kids down to the parade with Justin, Lori and Ryan. Mason thought this was a fun parade cause all they did was throw candy into the crowd. Seriously it was like Halloween! There were a few fun floats but mostly tractors and classic cars. Mason kept following the biggers kids into the street to pick up candy but the bigger kids kept taking the candy right out from under him so aunt Lori was nice enough to tell the big kids to stay away from the little kids. Mason and Ryan went home with big bags of candy. That night we went to the Rainier day's carnival. Shane was feeling a little better by this time and he was able to ride with us on the farris wheel. I didn't feel comftorble taking Morgie so she stayed on the ground with uncle Brett. We all had a great time and it was fun to see everyone.
