Evergreen Wings and Waves Waterpark

A lot of people think about going to the water park on a hot day, but water parks are also fun on rainy days. At least that has been our experience.

And finally, we also got to check out all the cool airplanes in the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum right next door.
