Weekend on the Oregon Coast with the Kids

Monday, June 28, 2010

Last week we took our vacation with My sons family to the Oregon Coast (SEASIDE). This turned into a Great week. We left home Monday AM and got to the beach that afternoon.

The expression on Maddie & Izzie's faces were priceless when they saw us.

This was the first day.. Maddie was pretty impressed that we could dig and find water.

that night we gathered the fire wood we brought and had a nice fire & watched Izzie Play & Maddie took grandpa for a walk.

The next day after playing in the sand Jack & I were walking back to our hotel room and ran into my cousin & his family. We were shocked to see them, as we didn't know they were on vacation also. I told them that we were meeting on the beach for a wiener roast & make smores with JJ & Family and another Cousin & Family we had made arrangements to meet up with who were staying in Canyon Beach, just 8 mile away.

This was wonderful because most of the young cousins have never met until that day

Maddie & Izzie were excited about these new friends.. Take note Maddie has her hand sanitizer, & Yes! she shared it!!

you can almost feel the heat & hear the crackling

Wednesday Papa & Maddie made a Big Sandcastle

Daddy had to join in on the FUN!!

Izzie & Maddie having fun together

Well if you haven't guessed. Those Girls got pretty sandy and we would not have traded these days with them for anything..

As you know, God has blessed us with Maddie and her Life is a living testimony of his promises and Love..
Maddie did get a bacterial infection. However she was playing like a child in the Dirty sand. With a compromised immune system she was bound to get some type of bug.
The only treatment was antiobiotic, prayers & snuggles from Mommy

Thank you for visiting us and sharing our trip

    Looks like a fun time was had by all. It looks like the adults enjoyed playing like kids as much as the kids did, something we all should do once in a while. And such a nice surprise to run into relatives and enjoy the extra family bonding.

    Have a safe and enjoyable 4th of July.

    We were recently there (2 weeks ago) at Seaside. Our daughter and her fiance are staying at the Ronald McDonald house in Portland. Their son was born with three diaphragmatic hernias and they are at Emanuel Legacy Hospital. They have been there since April (he was born May 4th) and Jesse is about to undergo another surgery to have a trach tune and feeding tube put in.
    Looks like you had a wonderful time with your family.

    Beautiful! I am so glad it was a fun week at the beach with family. Sometimes we take those normal activities for granted. Maddie surely does live in the moment and remind us how precious it is! YAY! Welcome home and hope to hear from you soon. . .

    I could just feel the love and warmth of your family.
    Every child should make and play in a sand castle.
    Thanks for sharing!
