Summer Travels

Where the heck have I been? All over the place! We took a family trip to the Oregon Coast, camped on the ocean in yurts, got REEEEALLY dirty and had a blast. For the kids dirt definitley=FUN! Seriously-it took 3 baths to get Dylan's feet clean!We met up with Mike's family and all camped together at Beverly Beach. We stayed in heated yurts with electricity and the campground had bathrooms and showers so it was my kind of rustic. We took family pictures on the beach and gorged ourselves with good food and smores every night.On the way home we stopped at the coolest childrens museum AC Gilberts Discovery Village in Salem, OR. Each room had cool science and displays and hands on creativity displays. The kids ran through the entire museum and couldn't wait to see what was next. At the end we let them each pick their fav room to go back to and play for a bit. Dylan choose the bubble room and Anna chose the frozen shadow room. Check this place out if you are in the area. It is a kids dream.
We got home, I did massive laundry and then I left two days later to go to North Carolina with my mom for a wedding. It was the relaxing end to my vacation. We slept till 11 and drank gallons of Diet Pepsi every day. So I'm back ....
