Another day at the beach

The next morning we thought we got up early enough to find shells but I guess it wasn't early enough so we just played in the sand and water.

Sadie loves the water so much.

Buried in the sand, eating the sand, again.
The water that would stay in these dips in the sand was nice and warm.

Rick and Sadie out with Shaina.

Those are Owen's cute little footprints and that is Owen way out there. This is his way of telling me he's cold and tired of the beach and wants to go back to camp. I thought the picture turned out really cool

Rick and Shaina out on the boards.
Owen's birthday was the second day we were on the coast and it was rough for Owen. He spent most the day (and the whole trip) getting hurt and crying. It was sad to see and we tried really hard to make it enjoyable for him. I guess he's more of a warm/dry climate guy; I guess it's good we live in a desert. The over all trip was ok and made Rick never want to do it again, but maybe in 3 or 4 years we'll be ready to do it again.

July trip to Oregon

The week of the kids' birthdays, we went up to Oregon to visit my grandpa and also go to the Oregon coast. This was Owen's third trip to great-grandpa's and Sadie's first but neither of them have been in the summer or to the beach. It was really cold and overcast the whole time we were there but Sadie had a lot of fun!

She loved to eat the sand! We couldn't keep it out of her mouth for 2 seconds.

Out of order, but in the car on the way to the beach.

Owen liked to run out to the water and run back up with the tide.

The kids going out in the water with dad. I didn't get in the whole time. It was way too cold.

My wonderful parents.

Sadie, loving being buried in the sand.

And of course, as soon as he found out people don't like having sand thrown at them, that's all he would do.
Rather than trying to figure out how to get the pictures all posted in order, I think I'm going to try to break it down in days, so there might be a bunch of posts. It's been too long since I've blogged. I have to learn it all over again.
