Girls at the Zoo

On the beach

This past week we went on our annual Orgeon Coast trip! We stayed in Cannon Beach it's near Haystack Rock and a cute little town with fun shops. It is so beautiful and relaxing! We had georgeous weather so the girls loved playing in the sand and chasing the waves! We started super early on Saturday we left at 4 am...crazy but Brooklyn in a car for that long...4am and a sleeping Brooklyn was great! So we stayed in Portland the 1st night and went to the awesome Porland Zoo. Unfortunately it rained pretty hard while at the zoo which we were prepared but Ashlyn kept asking to go play at the hotel. Funny how you spent so long driving to a vacation spot and the coolest thing is the hotel and the hotel pool. But what can you do. So then the rest of the time we spent on the coast. Taking walks, fires on the beach, making sand castles, and just enjoying family time. Brandons family was there too, it was great to spend some good time with such awesome inlaws!! Ashlyn loved playing with the boys! This year my brother Jordan came with us before he leaves on his mission. How great it was to have him come with us! We ended the trip trying to drive home late Friday but instead we got held up with some weird health problems I started to have unfortunately the last day of the trip. So after the doctor visit and lots of dramamean we were on our way home. Got safely back home at 4:30 am Saturday morning and slept in! We loved our relaxing family get-a-way!
