Baby is in the heart of Bellingham. They serve great beer, brewed on site. My favorite is th eBlonde, but the other brews, too numerous to mention are outstanding. Great food selection including the beer beef stew my favorite.

This is a nice and easy enough for the littles to handle. Nice views and lots of good places for some great photo ops. Make sure to watch the littles as they don’t listen and run on the trails anyways...don’t want them falling off!

We had a short time available, so we went to this park. There was a small fish hatchery and the falls were awesome. There were hiking trails.

Yes, there are many places in the park to read a book. If you want to be near the falls, I would of course bring a folding chair or spread a blanket.
