The day for was spent in Vancouver Washington. We went to Art ala carte which we went to two years ago when they had a Portland location as well but now they only have a Vancouver location. Vancouver Washington is only a 20 minute drive from the hotel and if we leave in the morning and return early afternoon we are going opposite of all the traffic so the commute is easy.
This was another place the kids really liked and we're excited to go back to. Here is Henry with all of his Creations he made. You can stay as long as you want during Open studio time and make as much as you want. Obviously all of this will not be coming home with us because it will not make the flight.
The next stop was Fort Vancouver which is a national parks historical site. We went there last time as well. This time the aviation museum Park was open. So we got to see that but otherwise everything looks pretty much the same as it did two years ago.
Here Henry is sitting on a cement bench waiting to build up the courage to go into the cold water at Salmon Street Springs. This is just a couple blocks down from the hotel on the waterfront. He really wanted to go check this out. He is a fan of water squirting all over the place.
We ended our day going to the Oregon Brewers Festival which takes up a couple of blocks on the waterfront. They have a free root beer tent for kids and it was free admission to the festival you just have to pay for your plastic beer mug to drink out of and your beer otherwise if you are not drinking beer and are the sober cab or are a child you get to drink for free.
