The beach and a wedding

The last week of August we ventured to the coast for a few day before we went to portland for James' little brother Matts wedding.

We went to a tiny town called Cape Meares past Tillamook. We were about a block away from the beach. We stayed a house that was just perfect. Erin, Liam and Judy were able to go also and it was such a nice trip. Perfect weather and great company.

The beach was sooo nice, no people, lots of shells, and really nice sand.




Liam could hardly contain himself, he loved it


Gabe found so many shells


Nolan wasn't too excited about how cold the water was


But he slowly warmed up to it

The next day we had to go to the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Nolan sat and watched for a long time


We also got to eat lunch there

I do have to say after hearing about the cheese curds "squeeky cheese" and finally being able to try them....I am in love.
It isn't a trip to the cheese factory without some icecream!


Did some hiking

800 year old tree...wow

Love these two!

Gabe doing some Yoga


Monkey see monkey do!

Nolan wrote his name so well in the sand


Perfect weather


James searching for starfish with Erin. There were starfish, crabs, all types of sea creatures in those rocks. The kids took it upon them to save all the starfish that were laying on the beach and throw them back in the water

Yes James, you do have a nice rear end




Gabes best friend........he loved this crab........they shared a very nice 5 or so minutes together when he decided he needed to save it from the seagulls since the seagulls were eating ALL the crabs on the beach.


The rescue mission didn't go quite as planned.....for his best friend washed back up on shore where the seagulls automatically started pecking at it.....he ran to save his life again shooing away the birds, but they wouldn't have it......here is James having the talk with him.


Poor guy.....Rest in peace


We went to the zoo the next day since we didn't make it to the aquarium

Which was nice since all the animals were actually out. Kids obviously loved it

The rest of the trip was spent in Vancouver at Mike and Rachel's. The boys had so much fun playing with cousins for all hours of the day.

Wedding day! This is all the boy cousins....there is actually two missing!!



The happy couple :)


The next few pictures James and I gave the boys an action and they had to make a face with it...This is what they cam up with......


Super hero

Sad

And my favorite...........GIRLY.......I love Gabes face!!

The pictures at the beach are amazing! And the one of poor Gabe realizing his crab wasn't going to make it...heart breaking!

Gabe makes a great "girly face"! That boy can make me laugh so easily. Love him!

The Oregon Coast is so great, and you definitely can't leave Tillamook without some ice cream. I love all the pictures.
