The Beach

I think that our Oregon trip will comprise several posts. So we will start with the beach. We had a lot of fun at the ocean and had great weather all week long (surprising for Oregon). The water was the perfect temperature for little kids. Warm enough that they can play on the beach, but cold enough that they don't want to stay in the water very long or venture out too far. Kayson would have nothing to do with the ocean. He would bring me his bucket and ask me to fill it up for him. I tried to get him to walk out with me a few times, but he wouldn't. I can't say I blame him, but I hope he's not traumatized for life. Audrey enjoyed standing in the water, but would get startled everytime a wave came in if she was sitting. She also consumed more than her recommended daily allowance of sand each day. She would eat the stuff by the fist fulls.







Our beach house was just to the left of this picture. We were very close to a great beach and the house was very nice too. 6 bedrooms, 3 baths, 2 kitchens and 3 family rooms.
Uncle Michael brought a hamster wheel to cruise the beach with.


We made a lot of sand castles and a few kid-castles as well.

How fun! I hope Kayson isn't traumatized for life too-although I might be when it comes to little kids and water...

That hamster wheel looks like tons of fun! I didn't think Oregon had blue skies!

It didn't have very many blue skies when we were there 9 years ago, but we lucked out. Mornings were always misty, but by the time the sun came up it was blue skies and warm.

I love the beach but I didn't see and surfing. Have you hung 10 lately.
I can wait to see the fishing trip photos. Oregon has great salmon fishing and I hope you brought lots of it home.

Well, if we are going to split hairs I agreen with Carrie. Google Earth says that Mom and Dad's house is 4601 feet above sea level. Our house is 5070, so she will be coming up 469 feet.
