Last weekend we headed to Astoria to meet up with Trevor's family. The kids have been looking forward to it for a long time! Despite the unusually cold weather on the Oregon coast (which seems to find us whenever we visit the WA or OR coast), we had a great time! We missed Trevor's sisters who couldn't come this year...but the brothers had a blast together. These guys make me laugh when they are around each other. I especially liked the the dinner conversation about all of Tyler's high school shenanigans...good entertainment for all. And the major competition attitude in board games and bocce ball. Gotta love these guys.
It warmed up enough to enjoy one day on the beach...even though you couldn't see the water because of the thick fog/clouds covering it.
And, I don't know why we didn't take a group picture before everyone left. Note for next time! Such a fun weekend and never seems quite long enough. Thanks so much for everyone traveling quite a distance (we had the shortest route this year). And thanks to Trevor's mom for making all the arrangements...never an easy task! I love spending time as a big family group. These trips are the highlights of the summer for my kids (and me too!)..being with grandma and grandpa, aunts, and uncles, and especially cousins ... it just wouldn't be vacation or summer without family around!
