“Bottom line is, even if you see them coming, you're not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does.
So, what are we, helpless? Puppets? Nah. The big moments are gonna come, you can't help that. It's what you do afterwards that counts. That's
when you find out who you are." - Joss Whedon

We've mentioned it before, but did you know we are heading to the Beach in Seattle on Saturday the 18th at 11ish??

Meet us at the Salmon Slide at 11 AM.
This Saturday is our Seattle Area beach outing at Carkeek Park and next Saturday is our Ocean Shores Beach Outing. Both events will meet up at 11 AM. Anyone is welcome to attend.  (Carkeek Park is located at: 950 North West Carkeek Park Road Seattle, WA 98177). BTW, it is the lowest tide of the summer this week, so even if you don't meet up with us at Carkeek, its a great week to visit a Seattle area beach on the Sound any day this week (14th -18th) between about 10 AM and 2 PM.

Here are some details regarding Carkeek this weekend:

Join up with Families Supporting Adoption (FSA) at Carkeek Beach in Seattle on Saturday, June 18th. This is a very casual event and anyone is invited. Bring your family, your friends, your pet or grab a friendly neighbor! We just want a chance to visit and hang out and enjoy nature together. Let's meet at the bottom of the Salmon Slide near the playground at 11 AM. Just text or call me if you want to know where we are headed next! (Larissa - 801-209-4198)

From the Salmon Slide, North of the main play area, we can stick together or spread out. At Carkeek, there is plenty of sand, picnic benches, a great play area, and as it is low tide, beach naturalists will be there to point out the cool creatures of the Puget Sound. Expect the parking to be limited and feel free to arrive any time and just connect at the Salmon Slide at 11 AM. Bring your own lunch and any supplies you may want for a day at the Beach in the Pacific NW (ie. sunscreen, a rain jacket, lunch, water, sand toys, rubber boots, etc.)

See the previous blog post at http://fsawa.blogspot.com/2011/04/save-date-for-fsa-beach-day-saturday.html if desired. Hope to see you at Carkeek Park on Saturday, June 18th at 11 AM (or in Ocean Shores the following week on Saturday, the 25th if that works better. Expect to receive an Evite  and watch for an updated blog post with the Ocean Shores details coming soon).
