Memorial Day Weekend

We met up with Mam-o and Pop-o in Cannon Beach, Oregon for the holiday weekend. We had such a great time! The weather was pretty decent considering it was the Oregon coast...it was 60-ish and cloudy but it was nice. It did rain for a short while, but we just put Sydney in her new rain coat and she was good to go. Sydney had the best time on the beach, she loved it and could have spent the whole day playing in the sand. Her favorite thing was picking up sand with her shovel and dropping it in the water. Later her favorite thing was to water the sand with her watering can. She loved building castles with daddy, although she enjoyed knocking them down more. We had a terrific time-so much so that Sydney cried when Pop-o and Mam-o left. She didn't want them to leave and she didn't want them to go home. "No go home, no go home!" This was also the five year anniversary of Anthony's wedding proposal to me...where else but at Cannon beach? So I probably knew it was coming since we had just closed on a house we purchased together the week before but it's a special place for both of us. We've gone to Cannon Beach the last 5 of the 7 Memorial day weekend holidays.

Here are many pictures from our fun beach trip:



Hmm...should I put sand in the water or water in the sand??

We love puzzles in this family, so here is Mam-o teaching Sydney the art of puzzles

Oh wow! I didn't even know Oregon had such a beautiful coastline! I'm actually now jealous that it doesn't rain here more so we could get Hayden his own little rain jacket and actually use it! Glad you guys had a great Memorial Day! How ya been feeling?
