Our Great Adventure

Saturday Travis had the day off and I didn't have to be to work until the evening, so we planned a field trip outing of sorts for the family. I had suggested we try going down to Tacoma instead of our usual Seattle. Travis had the idea of looking up a few Brown Bear Carwashes on the route to Tacoma that we could stop and visit. He planned the route and we headed out with camera in hand. It was a lot of fun. It was nice going someplace new for a change and the boys got some special treats. We ate ate at an A&W/KFC where we got excellent service. The boys got their own hotdog and rootbeer. Yum! The highlight of the day was at the Brown Bear/Chevron. The car wash was not working right, so no cars were going through. Travis took Joseph and Spencer over to look at it, check it out and take pictures. The attendant there (his name was Donald) came out and told them they could go inside and check it out. He took them in and Travis took some pictures. Joseph was a tad nervous, even though Donald promised he wouldn't turn it on while he was in there. Then he gave them each a Brown Bear antenna ball and a couple of car fresheners. They thought that was the end all be all. It was a lot of fun and the kids are already begging to do it again. Maybe we'll have to plan a different route with new car washes. I will leave you with a couple of pictures from our excursion.
