Two weeks ago the weather was in the upper 50' to low 60's degrees in the sun. We could not have asked for a nicer day. Jeff and I decided to take the children to one of our favorite places, Ballard Locks and Dam. It is getting darker earlier and earlier. The sun is now sets around 4:30 pm. We planned it perfect and had a picnic dinner at sunset. It was so beautiful. There were still a lot of trees with their beautiful leaves shimmering in the sunlight. We found thousands of dahlia's, roses, pansies, Japanese lanterns and a host of other flowers blooming in the gardens surrounding the locks. The fall weather has been great. We have had few nights below 45 and the days stay around 50-55. Sometimes even warmer.

The only thing that could have made the day a 10 out of 10 was to have a train need to cross, which would have made the bridge you will see in the pictures go down and that would have made Joseph's day! i would have loved for the kids to have seen the salmon on the fish ladders or the observation windows because it is really cool. but hey you cannot have everything. :0)
