Ocean Shores, WA – (4th of July weekend)
We are always feeling very fortunate to be able to have close family who live in various spots where we can take the kids, dogs, ourselves (of course), and have a great time overall. I personally visited Ocean Shores as a kid for family trips with my siblings and parents every summer and multiple times a year, so it’s great to take Haley and Alayna there to experience the BEAUTIFUL ocean/beach! This last trip was on the 4th of July and our first time going there for the fun. Let’s just say, it is pure chaos as you get to the downtown area on the 4th and I don’t recommend going to it if you have children, but down by the jetty was really fun and spread out; lots of fireworks but still safe.
