Just a week before baby was due we decided to join my brother and his family on their what seems to be annual trip to the Oregon Coast at Pacific City. The past couple of years we've been extremely lucky to have the best Oregon Coast weather possible! Usually it is cool and windy, but the past couple of years have been surprisingly warm with no wind. This time we didn't luck out as well. It was quite windy...in fact, I didn't even want to get the kite out because we'd be fighting it more than enjoying it. So we resorted to building sand castles and rolling down the sand dunes. Reina and some of the other cousins decided the frigid ocean was fun enough to play in...until their lips turned blue and then decided the sand hills were much more pleasant!
Baelor chose the warmer pond to float his boat on. He easily spent half of the time we were at the beach in this one little pond. Have I ever mentioned he LOVES boats? And motorcycles. And cars. We were not planning on coming so luckily my brother already had their RV they were traveling in for us to stay overnight in. It was actually quite comfy. Since the next day was Sunday and there was not enough room in our one van for everyone, we all piled in the RV to go to church! I slept in the bed while the kids rode above.
It was a quick and fun trip, even with a horribly hurt sacrum that didn't allow me to run along the beach or climb the big sand dune. Baby boy was going to be here in just a few days!
