Sunday was an eventful day for us. It started with Tayden's dedication at church. We left right after, in the snow and rain, and headed over to the Oregon coast. Christen's cousins have a beach house in Bandon they so graciously let family and friends use. They completely gutted and re-furbished this charming A-frame home on the beach. It was perfect.
We were only able to stay a couple of days, but it was worth it. Except for the overnight Xavier trip, we haven't been on a vacation since before Tay was born! Yeah, that's way too long for us.
We went with $10 in our pocket, so we found cheap and resourceful things to do. Did a lot of walking on the beach, finding elephant seals and sea lions, looked for grey whales, walked around downtown, cooked a lot of amazing food, watched Max run and run and run, found tide pools and lighthouses, went on a hike, watched Tay rediscover sand and rocks, built fires and enjoyed wine. We're planning a week out there this summer--when it's warmer and the kiddo can really enjoy the beach more!
