Guess where we just were? :)
With Doug starting a new job and having less vacation time, and because we got to spend almost a week in Idaho enjoying the lake and celebrating my sister's wedding, we actually thought about NOT going to the beach for our annual get away. The kids, however, we not liking that idea one bit, so we decided to go just for the weekend. And although it was a short trip, it was a lovely time away together.
We left Friday morning and headed to Lincoln City. We had lunch and then hit the outlet mall until it was time to check in to our condo.
Silliness abounds with these two!!
Checked in and ready to hit the beach!
It was windy, a little cloudy, but a lovely afternoon spent on the sand.
Pool time before bed was super fun!
I could watch him sleep for hours! Love my boy!
The kids were up early the next morning, ready to go see the tide pools!
We saw all sorts of interesting creatures and got some good exercise (it's about a 1/2 mile walk to where the pools are).
The afternoon was sunny, warm and windy and we spent a very fun time on the beach!
My girl is growing up. Sigh....
My silly boy....
Matthew hunting seagulls.... :)
Yep...it's cold. But they still were soaked by the end of the day!
My beautiful artist!
We took an evening walk to one of our favorite areas..
This path thru a wetlands leads to the D River campground. Its an easy walk and there is lots to see. The kids always enjoy it... we do too!
It wouldn't be a beach trip without movie night! This year was "Snow White". :)
This place is beautiful!
We headed home Sunday, thankful for our time away and looking forward to spending a longer time here next year!
