Watching the Falls

Watching the Falls

We had another absurdly nice February weekend in Seattle. It wasn’t the April-like weather of last week, but at this time of year a few clouds won’t keep me from enjoying dry, mid-fifties weather.

This weekend, I took the kids up to Snoqualmie to break out of the rut of Seattle activities. Patrick’s always been captivated by small waterfalls, so I thought he’d be impressed by Snoqualmie Falls. He was, I guess… you know, it’s really hard to tell. Patrick and Alex both looked at the falls for a few minutes, and then they spent a half an hour wandering through a gravel parking lot picking up rocks. I think they would have been just as happy had I taken them to a gravel road by an abandoned meth lab, just as long as they could pick up rocks!
