{30july2010: staycation part 2}

If you missed it, you can read part 1 of our staycation here.

For the second half of the day we all hung out in the sun (drinking).  

As empty beer cans were tossed to the side, Darwin  remembered her fondness for beer and thought she'd make sure the cans were really empty.

{that one's good, let me check this one}

{don't mind me... i'm just moving these cans around}
It was funny watching her make her way around and checking out all the empty cans... until she decided to try and get in the cans...
We quickly took them away from her, but not before she managed to cut her lip a tiny bit.   
More kayaking was done as the dogs looked on.
Then we tried out some badminton!  Note, trying to hold a drink in your hand while playing a racket sport is very hard!  Having two dogs trying to get the shuttlecock doesn't help much either.
There was so much activity all day long and Darwin wanted to be a part of it ALL.  She was so tired and delirious barking at everything going on, but couldn't get herself to just sit and relax so we eventually got her into the house and onto the couch for a nap.
What was supposed to be a nap turned into an early bed time and she missed a great sunset!

The next morning we had to get up early to catch the ferry back to Seattle so we could meet up with my good friend who was visiting from DC.  It was a short little staycation, but a beautiful one filled with lots of laughs. 


  1. What a great adventure! Beer and all -- ha ha! The pics are amazing! Love the sunset! Breathtaking! Thank you for sharing!

  3. I hope she didn't have a hangover this morning when she woke up :)

  4. I have an obsession with licking at beer too Darwin... It can be our secret since we aren't quite 2 yet.
