The BEACH! - It's sunny on the Oregon Coast!


We're here on the beautiful Oregon Coast!  Still can't believe some friends of ours let us stay in their beach house (THANK YOU!!!).  We are thoroughly enjoying our time.  The first day we arrived was sunny and we were pleasantly surprised to experience a full day of 70 degree weather on the beach.  If you're not familiar with the Oregon Coast, it is often cloudy, rainy, windy, and cold.  We're having our fair share of that, too, but not Day 1!   It was clear and sunny and felt like Hawaii (the closest thing we've experienced as a family to compare with).  Well ...other than the temperature of the water (which was frigid).

I sent the boys onto the beach ahead of me and found that they had instantly made friends with some other boys and joined in a game of 'baseball. 

Running from the waves was a definite highlight.  "RUN!!!!!  The waves are going to catch you, Quint!!!"

"Oh, yeah?  These waves can't get me!  I'm AWESOME!" 

Chillin' and relaxin' ... oh the joy. 

Of course, what is being at the beach without having a bonfire, roasting hotdogs and marshmallows, etc.  We HAD to do it all!  

Experiencing the gorgeous SUNSET on the beach.  Had to take a family pic ...

Ahhhhhh .... happy.
