Oregon Coast

These AMAZING pictures are pictures from our South Beach trip in June taken by Chris (Becerra Photography)

South Beach

I am so behind in blogging.
We took a trip right when we got out of school to the Redding Water slides and Turtle Bay but I didn't get any pictures at all. Since then it has been go, go, go!  Now that Youth Conference and Girls Camp are over I am finally getting back on track.

Last Christmas I gave Scott a totally reserved and planned out family vacation in a Yurt on South Beach at the Oregon Coast. So last month he finally got to enjoy that present.
To be totally honest, I don't think I will ever want to tent camp again. Yurts are the only way to go!

Electricity, heat, beds, a deck and a door with a lock. (I brought a crock pot...best idea ever) WE all had a blast.

Chris and Kara joined us with their family and even Grandma and Grandpa Olsen and Aunt Kris and Relia came up.
We spent 3 days and 2 nights out at South Beach and the weather was the warmest I have ever seen on the Oregon Coast.
We went to the Science Center and the Aquarium and did some walking around down by the pier.

We got to see how they catch crabs and process shrimp and my kids thought that was so cool.

On the way home we hiked in to see this awesome waterfall.
We are so blessed to live so close to a such a beautiful coast.

the first of many?

Sawyer was our first kid to have to get stitches. :( 
 Seven to be exact.

He snuck into a cupboard while I was getting out of the shower and found a small glass candle. He then climbed up onto the arm of a chair, glass candle in hand, and 2 seconds later fell off of said chair arm onto the wood floor.
Glass everywhere!!
A mini panic attack later plus the help of our rockstar neighbor Cortney, we ended up in the ER for 2 hours.
