Mini Break

lots and lots of playing in the surf
this one loves the ocean. she finds the beauty and it fills her soul.

in step. two peas in a pod

lots of wet clothes for the boy. who could not stay out of the water.
but isn't that what boys and beach are for?

dad flying the kite. almost took him out a couple of times.

beautiful, glorious sunsets that reflect God's amazing love for us.

We had a great time at the beach. I love Beverly Beach. It is one of my favorite campgrounds. The beach never fails me and it has showers. ha ha. We took the kids to the Mark Hatfield Marine Science Museum and they really liked it. We had lunch at the chowder bowl and played on the beach. We went for lots of bike rides and slept thru a night of pouring rain, but it was a great 4 days. Halfway thru I got a call from my friend telling me that Thad was not going to make it around Rainier and that he was on his way home. Totally disappointing to the guys who had planned this trip for months. But he made it home and after a good 24 hrs of rest, he felt much better. The kids and I stayed at the beach and just relaxed. The last morning we headed down to the beach and ran into a family from school. Their oldest daughter was helping the youngers find treasure in the sand, by dropping pennies, nickels and baubles kids got in on the action and had a blast! It was adorable. It was the perfect way to end the summer!
