This week's adventure took some time to coordinate but in the end it was well worth all the work! I read somewhere that Jetty Island up in Everett was a special place and that it was perfect for kids. It's just a short boat ride across from the Everett Marina. I think you spend more time lining up for the boat, loading the boat and launching off the dock, than you actually spend riding in the boat. Molly still found it to be an exciting adventure.
We played for a few hours, ate a very sandy lunch on the beach and then packed up our gear to go home. Molly was so tired that she practically whimpered as we loaded onto the boat. She did not fight me as I got her into her car seat and was asleep before I even started the car!
We are definitely going back next summer with Daddy and Chicken Nugget. It's the perfect place to spend a sunny, summer day! You have to get in quick though as the season is short, running from July 2nd to September 2nd. Reservations are highly recommended, especially with little kids who are not great at waiting.
