Here it is, the end of the summer, and I've barely posted anything! We've done a lot this summer and I've been too exhausted to update this thing with all of our adventures. So I'm going with the "better late than never" way of thinking and posting some of these a bit late.
One of new "it" spots that we discovered this summer is Mud Mountain Dam Park. Each time we've gone there hasn't been a ton of people which is always a plus since I can't stand large crowds of people. They have a wading pool for the kids, a huge playground, each of the picnic tables is sheltered and comes with NICE covered grills, and most importantly....the bathrooms are clean!! It's a very well kept park. It's a little out of the way for most (out past Enumclaw on the way to Mt Rainier). In my opinion though, totally worth the extra drive.
