The beginning of this week we had really nice weather and happened to notice it was nice at the coast as well... so Monday morning we took off for Cannon Beach, OR. We thought it would be fun to take Aubriana to the beach for the first time in her life. It's also great that its only 2 hours away.

Cannon Beach is really beautiful with not alot of people, which is great. The weather was really really nice but the wind on the beaches here in the northwest make it feel a little colder. There were even times when the clouds would blow in on the beach which was cool looking. At first all Aubri was concerned about was her hoodie blowing off her head. She got past that when Tim would take her running out to the waves. She loved it! She even braved the cold water on her feet.

We took a break from the ocean for a little while and took Aubri to a cafe place for lunch where she was served miniature corn dogs (kids get good stuff now these days). We also checked out a few fun shops and got Aubri a souvenir hoodie :) and went back to the beach (hard to stay away). We also drove up to Ft. Stevens where you can drive your vehicle on the beach. There, we watched quite a few wind surfers and chased birds. It was such a great day with just us having fun. I'm so thankful for my little family.

... I love the Ocean! ...
My favorite picture of the day! I was pretty excited to see the ocean. ;) Yes, those are clouds behind me.

... what should I do now? ...
I love this picture of Aubri. She's not quite sure what to do. :)

  1. I love that beach too! You guys are lucky to live so close to the ocean, even though it isn't like California beaches, it's still pretty sweet! Love the pix especially the first picture!

  2. I wish we lived closer to the beach. I love the pictures! It looks like you had a wonderful day, and your little girl looks pretty tuckered :)

  3. Love all your pictures as always! Thanks for sharing them!

  4. HOw fun!!!! That's it, grad school is over rated anyway, I'm moving to a different climate, 17 years in Utah is too much!!!
    OK, I guess I can wait, but your photos of the beach make me miss it like a drug addict misses heroin (bad comparison?)
    Your family is SO cute, and again, your camera takes the best pictures!!!! is that what you do for a living is photography?

  5. Oh, the beach! That's what I miss the most!!! Looks like it was a beautiful day, even with clouds.

  6. Fun! Looks like you guys had a great day!!! :)
