Friday we checked out a new park on the Sound- Titlow Park in Tacoma. This park has a playground and splash park but also if you got on a little walk then you go to the beach right on the Sound. When we first got there it was super crazy! It was a hot day and the parking lot was full since everyone wanted to go to the splash park. Nate ended up dropping me and the girls off while he drove around. I packed everything and found a great spot under a tree for shade to have our picnic. During this time someone happened the leave at the right time and Nate found the perfect parking spot in the shade. We had our lunch and made the short walk to the water. It was super busy at the playground/splash park but on the Sound it was so quiet and peaceful and just a couple other people. We got out there close to low tide for the day and it was amazing. There were so many little sea creatures to find and look at and the view was perfect.
Paige was brave enough to hold a little crab this time. She is much braver than her mom when it comes to creepy, crawly things.
This was my first time seeing sea cucumbers and there were also these little eels under some rocks. They were so cool. Along with these we saw some different kinds of sea anemone, hermit crabs, small to medium crabs and even a couple larger crabs about the size of my hand. There were lots of little shells and barnacles too.
I held a sea cucumber!
Baylor loved splashing her feet in the water.
Perfect day with my amazing family!
She loves playing in the rocks with her hands and feet- digging and swishing around the rocks along with throwing them.
These two girls enjoyed digging in the sand and sit in the shade for awhile. The weather wasn't too bad since we were right on the water. We were at the park for about 4 hours and most of the time we spent on the Sound.
We then walked back to the playground and let Paige explore the playground and play at the splash park for a while before heading home.
Baylor enjoyed a nap in the shade while big sister had fun on the playground.
It was such a fun day and a park I would definitely go to again!
