This is a video from earlier this summer. We were in Snohomish, Washington, visiting my aunt, brother, sister-in-law, and cousin and took a detour with my aunt to hang out the beach.
When I was a kid, my grandmother would take us to Salt Water Park and we would gather little crabs like this for hours and hours. The other adutlts took us, too....it was just often my grandma that said yes when we begged to go and often let us bring a few home.
It was a lot of fun to watch my kids help fill other kids buckets. Christopher was very taken with rocks that day, and every day since. He keeps finding heart shaped rocks for me, but they've all been in Glacier, so I couldn't keep them.
