Country Charm Park, Terrace Park and Jasmin Thai


It is August 1st, and it was acting like and thirsty kind of weather.  We tried a trek down to the new Country Charm Park where on Arbor Day we had planted trees.  We found gigantic tractors mowing and collecting silage, and tried to find safe access to the river, but no such luck.  We decided to go to Henry Donuts, a funny little local donut shop that has absolutely delicious and large donuts.  The donuts were toted to Terrace Park, where we had held our Vacation Bible School, and we devoured them.  

It was a strange day broken up by doctor appointments.  We had watched my friend's children that morning, and my 5 year old had to go to the doctor that afternoon to check if the girl figurine she had swallowed had indeed gone through her.  We're maximizing the grandparent time because they leave in 4 days.  After all the appointments, we went to the best Thai restaurant I know, Jasmin Thai in Stanwood.  The food is always more delicious than I remember it to be, they are hugely family friendly, giving glow stick bracelets to our kids, and it's just a peaceful place to be.
