This summer we haven’t played as much as we should have so we skipped out of town for a few days to spend some time in Seaside Oregon with some of our kids and grandkids.The weather was perfect! We must have been blessed with the warmest days of the summer and it was HOT even at the beach.
We loaded up our cars with kids, beach toys, towels and enough food to make most of the meals for 4 days were away.After a few Starbucks stops and a quick stop at a grocery store for a couple of things we didn’t have room in the ice chest for we were at the beach house.
We all pitched in and unloaded the cars quickly and gathered enough snacks and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for little wave jumpers and then we hit the beach.
The kids had a blast and even when their little feet were numb from jumping waves in the cold ocean they stayed in the water until we called them in to go back to the cottage.
Evening were filled with logs burning in the firepit and gooey marshmellowy s’mores.
The sunsets always take my breath away and remind of how majestic our creator is to display such beauty for us to enjoy.
I am so thankful for those few days of fun and refreshment. I hope we will be able to play a bit more before the changing of the seasons and enjoy these sunny days of summer before the fall chill starts to shorten the days.
