Oregon Coast

On Monday the kids and I gathered up a buddy & child and headed over for a week at the Oregon coast, getting back this evening. We had a BLAST. Just the Moms and kids, we drank wine all evening and chased giggling little all over the beach all day. The beach house we stayed in is an adorable home, just the perfect size and just a hop away from an INCREDIBLE white powdery beach. The weather was incredible, with both bright sunny days and some comfortably overcast days, with the temperature staying in a cozy t-shirt or light jacket range the whole time. Our days were simple; wake, eat, head to the beach. Home, eat, nap, head to the beach. Home, eat, bed...... break out the box of wine. Lather, rinse, repeat. We even managed to get up to an awesome tide-pool beach where the giggles and squeals about the "sticky" sea anemones just made my day... and Kael only managed to fall INTO the tide pools once. There were ample opportunities, so score one for Mom. ( we also made it home with two bags full of "illegal" sea shells found on the shore. again, score one for mom.) I am just so proud and in love with my children. They were pretty well behaved the whole time, listened to directions when it was important, were kind and considerate of others in general, and made what could have been a fiasco into the funnest light easy summer get away we've ever had. Next time we'll have to bring Matt, lol!! ALthough he got quite the vacation himself this week, with school being out and the ability to sleep in as late as he wanted, for three days straight! Lucky guy! Even on vacation, the kids didn't sleep past seven.. but who would want to, when the outside is just waiting for you to explore it??!!
