Cousins playing on the Oregon coast…. Does it get better than that? Chilly and rainy…but who really cares? The waves were amazing and at night we could sit across from a row of windows and watch lightening spark behind clouds in the distance.
Year two of our family weekend at the coast (now a tradition). We rented the same house as last year. Three generations playing, laughing, enjoying time together. It was an amazing treat. You can pack a lot into three days and two nights. Cousins, a staircase, and a slinky….need I say more?
Friday night we celebrated Bryon’s birthday with a huge rice crispy treat 38!
Inside, we had game night and plenty of laughter.
Saturday night was the talent show (followed by pizza). Each participated. Mom was the magician’s assistant as pencils were poked through a bag filled with water. (She also had her own talent, but folks came forward when audience participation was required.)
The cousins took every opportunity to stick together.
Next year’s dates have already been locked in and we got the same house. Goodbye coastal “home.” See you next year.
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
