Anyone miss me? 🙂 It was quite an eventful couple of weeks around here, with Thanksgiving, Black Friday and then our week long trip to Seaside, Oregon. It was really our first long family vacation with just us.
The weather was nice the majority of the time and we tried to relax as much as possible with three kids. 🙂
We climbed the Astoria Column. The view was magnificent.
We took the kids bowling for the first time. That was fun….and tiring.
We went to the Seaside Aquarium and surprisingly the kids loved their little touch tanks where they held a little starfish and hermit crabs.
And then there was the pool…the kids are always obsessed with the pool. 🙂
And how could I forget the beach?
It was great.
I’m starting to get back into the swing of things around here. My to-do list today was a mile long today. But I’ve accomplished a lot.
Tomorrow I’m heading to a wedding, Thursday is Emma’s Christmas program, and Saturday is full of Christmas activities and basketball games.
‘Tis the Season. 🙂
I’ll be back soon, I promise….
