On the 4th of July we decided to check out the town of Ocean Shores. We went into several shops and decide to buy a kite to fly later that day.
(This wasn't even a planned picture!)
There was a shop called The Dusty Trunk and it was my favorite shop ever. I could live in that store. I wanted to buy almost everything in that store and bring it home.... but I excersized some serious self control and didn't buy a single thing. I did take sneak a few pictures though.
We were getting pretty excited to go and fly the kite so we ate some lunch back at camp and then went to fly the kite.
He was being so hilarious. I think he was trying to stuff sand into his belly button.
Back at camp we had some 4th of July food and got ready to see some fireworks.
We walked out to the beach at dusk just in time to find a spot to watch the fireworks.
We watched the fireworks from the top of a sandhill just off the beach. There were fireworks in all directions of us and it was awesome. It was also super cold, windy, and smoky. We had already pre-decided that Jake would take Everett back to camp if it got to be too much for him. We were only there for 5 minutes before Jake had to hike him back to camp... so Jake missed the huge, professional fireworks display. When we got back to camp Jake and Everett were in the tent with a lantern and they were playing with a story book. It was the sweetest thing ever.
