Long Beach

This past weekend we were lucky enough to have some wonderful friend invite us to join them down at Long Beach. We had such a nice time, enjoyed our friends, the beautiful scenery and enjoyed getting away.

The beach was beautiful, both Long Beach and Cannon Beach. It was a treat to head a bit further south and enjoy Cannon Beach... a favorite of Bryan & I. The kids loved playing on the beach for quiet a while despite the chilly breeze. The weather cooperated pretty well - dry while out and downpours while we were in. Not too bad for our ocean weather in fall.

Over the weekend we also were able to take in the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center (for me not my family). I really enjoyed it, so well done! And, it is set upon a beautiful cliff... simply stunning scenery. Bryan tried his hand for the first time ever at clam digging - as did Holly. They seem to have a great time... and even tried fresh clam chowder for the first time, a first for both!

It was a great weekend and we are so appreciative to our friends for the wonderful invite!

Now for photos...

That's A Wrap!

Holly has finished up her second year of soccer! She grew a lot this year, her skills improved immensely even though her comedic act still is in full play while on the field. She is a happy girl who gallops across the field with a smile... instead of getting on the ball and taking it back. Part of me wants her to get in there to get the ball the other part of me wants her to remain the happy girl skipping down the field... as those moments are passing so quickly, she is growing up and slowly replacing those little 'kid moments' with adult ones. It is going to quickly!

Here are a few photos from her final game!
