I spoke with Davinie and Steve a tiny bit about Denny creek.....it is about 40 minutes or so drive from Seattle, and a 1 mile hike to get there. Lots of smoother rocks with natural water slides and little pools, and not enough water anywhere to wash anyone away. Lots of families and schools come here to play. Jobie and I went here last summer, I am sure there are pictures of it on my hiking blog somewhere. (this is where I took the unicorn picture, and the pictures where it looks like Jobie is climbing a sheer rock wall, but he is actually lying on his side with the camera just turned)

Just a suggestion....we could also stay closer to home and go to the community center across the street. The pool is open to the public from 1pm to 2pm on Saturdays, and there is an outside wading pool for kids that is free and open noon to 7pm, as long as it is a nice day (forecast says 80's). The kiddie gym is open on Fridays, but not Saturdays, so that is a no-go. (It is 930am to 130pm on Fridays)

OK, this looks fun! When would we go here?

Hmmm.... Not liking the distance form the casa, as whatever we do on Saturday would have to be over by @1 or 2 for naps, getting ready for a wedding, etc..... but that Waterslide looks fun! Steve would definitely do that! We might play Saturday by ear, and just hose the kids in the backyard.
