Labor Day Weekend - Road Trip to Pacific City :)

Okay, so it really wasn't a "road trip", but that is about as far as we go these the beach and back. We stayed with my Dad & Jan at their beach house and had a great time! The weather ended up being beautiful - which I didn't think we would get as we drove through rain on the way over. You just never know what you'll get at the beach!

I thought I'd share a few of the "highlights" from the weekend. There was a SUPER low tide on Saturday morning, so we got up, tossed on some clothes and hit the beach! We were is search of whole sand dollars, but didn't end up finding any. Oh well. We did see lots and lots of pelicans, which were really cool. At least for me it was exciting. A nice change from the regular seagulls.

The beach did have these cool craters in it when the tide was out:

I thought this was kind of a neat old painted camper (in the background):

Just the girls went to the beach....but the boys joined us a little while later:

Here is a "sand castle" the kids built and decorated (and my dad's foot in the background):

We did a little kite flying:

I love this picture of Malia trying to make sure Alex was looking at the camera:
(such a sweet big sister - ha ha)

We rented a movie for the kids, made some "Jiffy Pop" and they had a grand old time in their own room, with their own t.v., and overflowing bowls of popcorn!

A sweet picture of Ella and Rourke :)
Doesn't she look so grown up? :(

Hope you all had a great LABOR DAY WEEKEND!!
