It seems like forever since I have done a "normal" post with pictures and thoughts to share. Life gets that way sometimes. Simple as it may be, these are some of the displays around my home this fall. The girls help me decorate on the first of every September. A tradition they and I look forward to alike.
The vacation we took to the Oregon Coast never fails to deliver. As many times as we have been there the scenery never tires. I am always amazed at the splendor and beauty of it every time. I wish with all my heart that I could just pack up and move to a beach house there. It is a home away from home.
The girls spent hours of their "down" time playing the a bucket pulley system I devised.
Down the beach on Tierra Del Mar.
It's fun to see my girls and their cousins get old enough to walk between beach houses all by themselves. A little group of giggling friends.
The waves were AMAZING at Depoe Bay this year. We have never seen them that large. They were crashing onto the rocks and up over the edge of the side walk. We watched them for a good hour blowing up through a channel and creating a massive spray. Way better than Old Faithful for sure:)
This year I taught them to make Sand Meatballs or "Sand Bombs". Something I did as a child.
Even baby figured out how to do it.
Spending time with Grandma digging for buried treasure.
Hubby tried so hard to catch the elusive Salmon but no luck this year. We did however pull in a ton of crab. Yummy.
On the 11 hour drive there are so many neat things to see. I love the tree farms especially. Miles and miles of trees. All spaced exactly the same.
May my heart ever lie with the Ocean. Someday, we will retire there. Someday.
Today is a down day. My IC has flared up this morning:( So, I am laying low and taking it easy. Oh, except for all the laundry. Ha ha.
Have a great day. And don't forget to go and sign up for the Winter Wonderland Giveaway. Just click here.
