Port Townsend #2

I've been so busy this week I haven't had time to post until now.

While in Port Townsend we had the most fun just playing around together.  We weren't worried about time or rushing around.  It was so nice.

One of the coolest things for us was when Penelope found a geocache.  We like to go geocaching occasionally but she just stumbled across this one.  We weren't even looking.  That has never happened to us before.

Bob tried lots of combinations for the padlock but couldn't quite figure it out.  I was able to look up the geocache on my phone and use the clue to figure out the code.  I can't remember what it is at the moment.  Penelope was so excited that she found it!
Here's a few more pictures of us goofing off.  I'm not quite sure how Bob got up there.
Leon really wanted me to take his picture on this chair.  But I was ready to go and so I just held up my phone and pretended to take the pic.  Then he said thank you really sweetly and I felt so bad.  I re-got out my phone and actually took the picture.
After playing around at Ft. Warden we headed over to Port Townsend and just walked down the street checking out their little shops.  I loved this bookstore we passed.  It just reminded me of all the old bookstores that you see on tv.  The shelves were high and had ladders to get to the books.  The hallways were small and the whole place was packed with books.
I can't remember the name of the place we got pizza but it was soooo good!  I know that they sell it by the slice downstairs but if you go upstairs you can buy the whole pizza.  I really liked it.
It was very warm and sunny while we were there and the kids did so good we wanted to reward them with ice cream.  This ice cream place had this old fashioned booth in it that moved.  We had fun playing on it while waiting for out ice cream.  There was a line and we had to take a number, but I think it only ended up being about five or ten minutes.
The ice cream was good and we walked along the boardwalk while we ate it.
Lastly we went to a little park and let the kids run around on the playground.  It was the perfect summer day!  I only wish we could have more.

And by all the kids did good... you mean except when Leon decided to try to cross the street and almost got hit by a truck. He was upset because he wanted to walk across the street by himself, without holding hands. I said too bad, and held his hand across the street. When I let go on the other side he turned and bolted back across the street. He got about 2 feet into the street before I could grab him. I don't think the truck saw him, I think the truck saw me and stopped. Needless to say, Leon scared me to death, and he screamed for a good 20 mins after that cause he wanted to cross the road by himself. Crazy kid!
