I am not sure where the last 10 years have gone. I am still having a hard time wrapping my head around it all to be honest. My oldest baby is 10. Little Peanut, who had such an incredible opening sequence to his life, is 10. Now, I know some parents have a hard time… Continue reading 10…….1.0…..TEN!!
So, I guess that the wedding craziness has ended. Oh and the summer craziness. Don't forget about the first month of school craziness. It's back to normal in our household, which means I should get back to writing. This summer was a blast! We did lots of new things, saw old friends and family and… Continue reading Apologies, but I have been living my crazy life!
So this week, I have been a little lax on writing, even though I said I would keep it up after Oregon. It's been crazy, and there have been plenty of fun adventures to blog about, but I just haven't had time. So sometime in the next week, look forward to all of our adventures,… Continue reading Our Crazy Week
So we went on another family camping trip. We have been doing these trips for 4 years with a couple families. It is usually around my birthday weekend, but we had to delay the trip due to a wedding and us going to Oregon. First off, I ADORE camping! We don't go nearly enough, but… Continue reading Family Camping Trip
Today, I got up early. I wanted to go down to the beach to see a 'minus tide.' It's when the tide is lower than normal. This was taking place at 6:32am. I made it out there just around 6:30. It was busier than I thought, but super peaceful. There were sand dollars (the boys… Continue reading Our Oregon Coast Adventure: Day 7
It's essentially our last day here. Tomorrow will be cleaning, packing and leaving. I am sad. I think this may be my new favourite place. Being this close to the ocean has been invigorating. We went to the arcade again this morning. Sean's parents wanted to play the bingo game with us. Let's be honest,… Continue reading Our Oregon Coast Adventure: Day 6
Today we drove to Portland. Now, this is something that I wanted to do while we were Oregon, but I didn’t think we were going to get to. But we did! Portland is very much like Vancouver. Same feel, same look, same crazy traffic and same parking. But I loved it! We parked downtown and…… Continue reading Our Oregon Coast Adventure: Day 5
So today was a little cloudy. Rather than just head straight down to the beach, Helen and I decided to drive into town and go to the outlets for some shopping. First we thought we’d check out this little country market just down the street from where we were staying. Now this market was just…… Continue reading Our Oregon Coast Adventure: Day 4
So, I am getting a bit behind here on the posts. But it is beautiful here and I am enjoying it so thoroughly, that by the time I get back to the house, I am exhausted! Day 3 was our day of driving. Sean’s parents always go to this restaurant called Gracie’s Sea Hag when…… Continue reading Our Oregon Adventure: Day 3
Today we slept in. Wait a minute, I’ll let that sink in. WE SLEPT IN!! This is a miracle! Seaside really must be perfect! Our boys have been 7am wakers since they were born. It is inbred into their DNA. But today, they slept in. And I did too! 8:30am! First time in a long…… Continue reading Our Oregon Coast Adventure: Day 2
