Lincoln City Oregon!

The kids were so excited to get out to the beach. Our hotel was right on the beach and each room was an Ocean View which was really nice! We spent three night here! We had fun building sand castles, flying kites, jumping in sand ditches and running from the waves!

The path way walking down to the beach

I love the black in whites at the ocean!
I love this picture of my family! So sweet!

here Ethan is writing his Girl-friend Ava's name in the sand! The other day I printed the picture and took it to Ava's mom. She said I am going to keep this forever and use it someday for their wedding announcement!

Attack of the Seagulls! They were fighting over a lunchable that someone had left on the beach!

Presley and I digging!

A huge hole that we found. Later we decided to have long jumps in it! Such dorks

The little Travelers

Here is a picture of my two cute travelers. All I can say is Thank God for the TV DVD in the car!
The kids enjoyed watching movies on the way to Oregon!

Our first night we stayed in Mcminnville. It is just South Of Portland! We had dinner and then we hit the WoodBurn Outlet Mall! I love Oregon. Tax FREE! There are many great stores there and we did some school shopping for the kids!

Next morning we headed for Lincoln City to the Beach! First time the kids had been to a real beach with soft sand!

Lowest Tide of the Year

Pat's parents came down and we met my Dad down at Salt Water State Park for the lowest tide of the year! The kids loved playing out at the beach! We turned over many rocks looking for crabs and other animals. We spent time looking for sea shells and then had a picnic with the grandparents. It was a beautiful day out! After a morning at the beach we then got in the car and drove to Oregon for a three day Vacation. Pictures to follow!
