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.
My favorite picture of the day! I was pretty excited to see the ocean. ;) Yes, those are clouds behind me.
I love this picture of Aubri. She's not quite sure what to do. :)
... All of us together ...
This sand dollar was still alive. It was cool.
... sweet dreams ...
