Day trip to Seaside, OR

The last day before they left we drove to Seaside, OR which is just over an hour away. We were so glad we did!!

First the kids HAD to ride the carosel and they LOVED it, well Mikaila did Isaak could have gone without. He would much rather just watch.

Evarlie LOVED it and cried when she had to get off

Then we went to the Aquarium were the kids got to feed seals fish and touch sea creatures.

Then we headed out to the sand and water to play around for a bit. Mitch was nice and took Isaak out into the waves. Mikael and Mikaila were swinging and Ciara....

was chasing this little runner down the beach! Where you going Evarlie?

To finish it off Mikaila and I rode the bumper cars she liked driving but did not like everyone bumping into us. But of course wanted to go again afterwards.

Thanks Mitch, Ciara and Evarlie for coming to Oregon and visiting with us. We had such a great time and I was desperately needing some Utah LOVE. Your welcome back anytime!

We were so glad to have friends from Utah come visit with us last weekend!! It was so fun to see them and hangout even though the weather was typical for Oregon we did some fun things with the kids. We all went to the Zoo the Oregon Zoo is so much different then the Utah Zoo and I was excited to show it off. The kids all had a BLAST!! These are a few of my favorite pics!!

a few days later...

So a few days later we decided to go back to Lincoln City for the day. The kids have never been to the Oregon Coast so I knew they would LOVE it even if it was cloudy and windy!! They had a blast, the look on their faces was priceless. Mikaila couldnt wait to feel sand on her feet. Isaak obviously couldnt wait to EAT it! YUCK!

Mothers Day Weekend

I had the BEST mothers day weekend EVER!! My friends husband called Mikael and set up a night at the coast with his wife, another friend Amy and me. It was so FUN to go to Lincoln City, stay in a condo and hangout with girlfriends with No kids (except for baby Sarah but she doesnt really count) and NO husbands!! How great is that?!! It was clear skies and sunshine when we arrived Friday night and it was beautiful. The condo we stayed in had an AWESOME view of the ocean. We went for a walk on the beach then dinner at KYLOS with a great view of the sunset from our table, then Coldstone for dessert, YUMMY! The next morning once again blue skies and sunshine which is rare on the Oregon coast. Lynette and I went for a walk while Amy rested. Then we all went shopping at the Outlet Mall we spent 4 hours talking and shopping. Afterwards Amy and me headed back to reality while Lynette's family joined her at the condo for the week. It was such a wonderful surprise and a much needed vacation. Thank you Derek for the amazing gift and Lynette for wanting a girls night with ME. Thank you Mikael for watching our kids and being so thoughtful. Thank you Scott for the sending your wife with us she is a blessing in my life!
