This post should have been written a month ago…sorry for the delay. Better late than never, right?!
Day 4 of Nana and Bops visit was Saturday, May 21st!.
This was our full day at the beach.
After getting to bed late on Friday night, baby girl woke up crying at 2 am. I ended up sleeping with her upstairs and at some point the little guy joined us in the bed, too.
I cooked breakfast for everybody while the kids were occupied by Nana and Bops and Ryan was taking the dogs out for a walk on the beach.
We had eggs, bacon, fresh fruit and english muffins.
Then we got dressed and headed down to the beach to hit low tide.
We spent almost two hours playing on the beach with buckets and shovels.
Baby girl was exhausted and I took a little extra walk around the neighborhood before heading back to the house for lunch. She fell asleep on my back in the Ergo and had a little bit of a nap.
We had lunch and then Ryan and I headed out to get some fresh fish for dinner.
After taking a drive through Lincoln City and buying some steak and other supplies at Safeway we headed south back towards Mojo Coffee. We grabbed a Stumptown and stopped at the Crab Shack to get some fresh halibut for dinner.
We had a great dinner of fish, corn, roasted potatoes, and salad.
After dinner I headed out to try to get baby girl to sleep in the ergo again, but she didn’t want to miss out on anything. So, we said goodnight to the ocean with Nana, Bops and the little guy and headed back up to the house where Ryan had a campfire ready for roasting marshmallows…well, almost ready. We waited a bit while he worked on the fire and then roasted marshmallows.
I put baby girl to bed and Ryan took the little guy on a late night walk to say goodnight to the ocean again.
I have an interesting story to tell about what I saw in the sky when they were gone, but I will save that post for later.
Here are some photos from the day.
I made this collage using Picasa and the tutorial from Emily at Jones Design Company. I am thrilled to be using my old friend Picasa as this will make blogging with photos so much easier for me!
home is…finally catching up with my blog posting (now we’ll see if i ever get our 2010 photo album done)!
