Port Townsend, Coupville, La Conner, Spokane, Silverwood Theme Park

Silverwood Theme Park was so much prettier than I expected.  Going on a Friday made the lines shorter, and the overall feeling much better than if it was over crowded.  We took Ian on the Tilt-a-Whirl and he did very well, I was so surprised!  The boys wandered int he candy store, with a promise to consider something later depending on their behavior (of course!).

Wow, what can I say, La Conner.  As we wind ourselves back home, we stop in La Conner for dinner.  La Conner was breathtaking as well.  We are open air dining on a deck overlooking the inlet with a view of a bridge.
Kite flying on the Port Townsend beach was awesome.  The most perfect weather.  Sunny, but not hot, breezy but not cold. I snuck a few La Conner pics in this one...
We spent a about 3 hours or so, I could have spent all day there sitting on the beach with my toes in the sand.  A great pic of Conrad and his "Pop Rocks" experience.
This year we visited the Science Center and was not disappointed.  There is a part of it on the pier, and also on the mainland.  It was very modern and cool.
A shot of the Palace Hotel.  I recommend this hotel in Port Townsend because of the location, the parking down town is a must, the Victorian atmosphere and Bob" the innkeeper remembers everything.  The "Genevieve" room is a King plus a small couch that Conrad camped on with this sleeping bag (not recommended for adults as this is a Victorian style small sized settee),  Perfect for us.
Dinner at the Fountain Cafe was splendid.  We later were told it was voted best cafe in Washington State. (Bonus!)
