Beachy Beach...

We headed down to Cannon Beach over the weekend for our last hoorah of the summer. My sister Heather had been down there all week, so we bombarded and came down to play for the day. Nothing like a little swimming, getting a little sand in every nook and cranny, a run to Bruce's Candy Shop, and roasting s'mores on the beach, to say farewell to free weekends and no schedule.

The kids start school on Tuesday and I can honestly say I am excited to get on a schedule again, but am dreading having to get up in the mornings and having to become the homework police again.

Zach's First Camp Out...

What's a summer without a little camping right? Over the weekend, Grandpa took all the boy cousins and their dad's up to Mt. Hood. This was Zach's first time ever camping and he loved it! He raved about being able to sleep in a tent and talked long about the nature obstacle courses they imagined up in their heads and played on. The hike up to Ramona Falls was said to be about a 4 mile hike round trip, so when it actually turned out to be 7, I think they were all amazed the boys kept up and finished it out. I get a kick out of all their walking sticks. What's the point of those anyways? I have a feeling they were used as swords or ligthsavers of some type instead. They all had a great time and look forward to doing it all again. These are some of the pics the guys took with their phones of their weekend excursion. As always, Justin is representing in his gray BYU Soccer shirt. I swear he will be taking that shirt with him to his grave. Just for the record, I do buy him other shirts to wear...
