Today ***thanks for the tip*** was another beautiful day in Oregon, shhh don't tell anyone but this has been 2 days in a row. We decided to take the kiddos to play at the beach for the first time. Jason packed a lunch, PB&J, some fruit, chips and sippys. We stopped on our way out of town and picked up some buckets, shovels, SPF shirts and got on the road. It took us a while to find the perfect spot, as we were searching we almost had a little incident. I gasped loud when I saw a deer very near to my side of the road, I meant to say "slow down babe, deer" it came out AHHHHH. Jason freaked for a second and semi slammed on the breaks. The poor deer looked at us like sh!t these people are crazy and can't drive I'm outta here, then she turned around and hauled butt away from us LOL. On this same road there was what felt like a 3 foot "dip" in the road, Jason saw it a little too late to slow down and the van about bottomed out, Xander pipes up from the back "ut ohhh" Hahaha. We ended up finding a great spot and spent a good two hours having fun digging in the sand, making sand castles, watching people fly kites and chasing after seagulls (while Hayden yelled quack quack quack LOL.) We stopped for a little lunch, the sandwiches were yummy...even with the little bit of sand that never fails to get in there, and the berries were extra good with that little bit of grit. After lunch they got to do a little wadding in the freezing cold water, silly kids never seem to mind when their extremities go numb. Jason and I had had enough and packed up and got moving on, the kids were not happy at all with our decision and let everyone we passed hear all about it. I hope it is just a 2 year old thing...this melting down every time an activity ends is not fun, for any of us. They calmed down after a few min. of strolling through the little town by the beach, they even got their first ice cream cones....and ate every last bit of them.
Break out the toys Daddy!
