Washington State vacation recommendations

My family (7 adults/ spouses in our 20s/30s/40s and 2 parents in 60s) is taking a week vacation in Washington State in mid-August. We're thinking of flying into Seattle and staying somewhere on the Olympic Peninsula. To help figure out where we'll stay, we'd like recommendations for/ against destinations for day hikes, scenic drives, historic locations, etc. We're not backpackers or hard-core hikers, but would like to do some hiking/ outdoor activities.

Goin' to Grandma's House

When we have our baby later this spring, and after I go back to my p/t job, my mom is going to take care of our son a few days a week. I'm looking for tips on what sorts of "supplies" my parents should keep at their house and what we should shuttle back and forth. They'll have their own Pack & Play and their own carseat, but what else? Any other tips to make this as easy as possible for everyone would be much appreciated, too.

How to support a grieving family.

Sadly I lost a friend to a long battle with cancer last night, her husband and teenage children are without any extended family in the area and will rely on some of us for the next while. Two things: 1 - Can you tell me of things that friends and family have done for you in similar circumstances that really helped at the time: large, small, immediately, over days, weeks, months, whatever. We'll sort out food, the pets and cleaning the house but what else can we do? 2 - Any advice on striking the right balance between giving them their space to grieve and being there to support to them?

When is it the least harmful for kids to divorce?

Our kids are 2 and 5. Their mom and I have a marriage that is clearly only lasting because we both love our kids so much and they need us. That said, we do NOT fight, either in front of the kids or alone. We just have a big ol' blank where the love used to be. On a daily basis we just basically ignore each other as much as possible and focus our energies on the kids. I do not foresee this lasting forever. However: When to break up? [more inside]
