time stands still best in moments that look suspiciously like ordinary life - brian andreas

I've been out of town for a month...literally.
Boise-2 weeks
Lincoln City, OR-1 week
Lincoln City, OR-1 more week
Traveling is fun, but I am exhausted.  And I've realized that vacation (with children in tow) is a sacrifice...and every parent that goes to the effort to take their children on vacation, is a saint. 
Because it's a LOT of work.
Here are a million few pictures of our Conklin coast trip...to say it was fun would be an understatement:

...and I just wanted to throw this in for good measure....there was a LOT of this going on with Harper this week:

...and I'm not sure why?  Maybe she's losing weight...

This is the 20th year our family went to the Oregon coast. 
And I'm counting down the days until year 21.


ps: we went to the Goodwill in Lincoln City and I bought 1 thing:

...an antique jam/preserves holder.  It has 3 jars with lids and a cradle for each  It's very cute.  But that's all I bought.
don't worry though...I hit up the bins right before I left.  Pictures to come...
