We spent 6 days on Whidbey Island in July...it was wonderful! My parents rented a big house, and my brothers and the girls came for the weekend, so it was fun to have the whole family there. The first few days were super hot, but luckily we had the water to keep cool. The kids spent most of the time playing in the water, and catching critters. The highlight of the trip was finding out that Lauren liked the taste of crab...a girl after my own heart!
