Summer In A Nutshell

I haven't blogged about so many things that we've done this summer!  I thought, since I'm so behind I'd just do a "summer" post.  So, here's some highlights of the summer!  Warning: LOTS of pictures!

In August we had a fantastic weekend down in Newport, OR.  SO MUCH FUN!!! We left on Friday night, stopping for dinner at Red Robin and arrived late in the night, around midnight.  We woke early and headed to the beach.  We then planned out a fun day sightseeing Newport.  We ended up at the Oregon Coast Aquarium, ate lunch at a yummy pizza joint, hung out at fun pirate themed shopping center, played at the beach again.  We then went down to the waterfront and watched boats, ate dinner at Mo's, played some arcade games, watched seals, and got ice cream.  The next day, on our way home we stopped at the Tillamook Lighthouse, ate lunch at good ol' McDonald's, and drove the scenic route along the ocean.  It was beautiful!  It was a quick trip, but so nice to get away.  The kids were great and slept well in our hotel.  The weather was perfect and everyone was happy.  That makes for a good trip!
