Weekend at the beach



With Sean working down by Coos Bay, we decided to take the opportunity to get away for the weekend and spend some time as a family. We left here Friday after the girls got home from school, and traveled through busy rush hour traffic. So after the long 4 hour drive it was nice to just sit back and relax.

I had talked to my Grandpa a week or two ago, and found out he had been here in Beaverton a few weeks ago, but did not know we had moved here. We were disappointed that we had missed each other. As we talked he mentioned that they were still on Oregon, and were going to be in Coos Bay this weekend. So we agreed that we would meet him down there, and spend a day or so with him. It has been close to 4 years since we last saw them, so it was nice to spend a little time together.

Saturday we met Grandpa and Grandma for breakfast. And then went back to their motor home to visit for a while. Then we decided to head on down to the beach! We really aren't familiar with the Coos Bay area, so we had no idea where to go, and it felt like a long drive to the beach as we randomly followed signs. When we finally found a beach we could walk down to, my first thought was, boy was this beach worth the wait. It was a little cove, like lagoon type area. It was just beautiful...like something you would see in the movies. I took a picture, but the picture really doesn't do it justice.


Here is a picture of Shelbi Hayden and Me, with the cove behind us

While we were at the beach the girls thought they needed to go swimming. It really was a nice clear day, but the wind was blowing which made it really cold! Nonetheless they still insisted on going swimming.

After a couple hours at the beach we headed back to the hotel room to try and warm up. I didn't even go swimming, and I was freezing, so I can imagine how cold the girls must have felt. But they are the ones who wanted to go swimming, so I had no pity for them....just me.

We had planned on maybe going to Eugene or Brownsville for church, but as we drove over there on Friday, I realized it was a lot farther than I thought it was. So we ended up missing church today, but I still had a great time at the beach with my grandpa, and my family. Sean will be working over there again this week, so we ate lunch together and then did a little grocery shopping for him. Then we said our goodbyes and headed home. And that about sums up my little weekend! Here are a few more pictures for your viewing pleasure! HE HE HE.

It's looks like you had a fun time! I'm glad! We did miss you at church though. I actually could have told you that Coos Bay was quite a ways off the beaten track! Let me know when Sean will be home and we'll have you over for dinner.

It looks like you guys had some amazing weather this time of year, over there! It sure does look like a pretty little cove. Church, in Eugene, was packed. It was a good little meeting. Roman got sick (of course) and threw up on the way home! Ugh!

Tisha: It was fun! Dinner with you guys will be great. Who knows when that will be though.

Trina: Oh poor baby! I hope he feels better soon. Glad you got to go to church in Eugene.

The kids are so cute, I love all the pictures especially the one of Hayden driving and Kayla flying the kite. Wow that really looks like a beautiful cove there, remember where it is, we want to go. We are thinking about coming out in a couple months. Either November or December. Probably will end up being January at this rate though.....LOL

I miss you guys. Good to see you in picture though, except Maria, no pics of her eh?. It is always worth the cold for the kids to get wet at the coast. Crazy kids. So glad that you had a good time with family.

Looks cold! Glad you guys had a lot of fun. Wish we could have been there. Then again, sometimes it's good to just have some good old fashioned family time, eh?

P.S. Sorry you had to miss Church. So did we. We got home Saturday, and on Sunday we got up waaaaay to late!

That looks like sooo much fun! I really am DYING to go out there and see what everyone describes to me as "BEAUTIFUL". It looks that way, but I know seeing it is a totally different thing. I think we will make it in the next year. Ryan wants to show me where he grew up and everything.
