Oregon Vacation Pictures

3 Sep

A couple weeks ago we headed across the country to visit family in Oregon. Flight wasn’t too bad! We were definitely glad to have purchased a seat for Little Missie. The extra room was so nice!

We spent our first day waking up too early to go crabbing. It was a blast! Grandma stayed home with the kiddos while we all went on the boats. Between the 9 of us crabbers(is that the right term??) we walked away with 90 large, male crabs! Boy, did we have a feast! Heres the pics from that day!

The next few days were pretty eventful, too. We spent a morning(an early morning, mind you) fishing off the beach. It was another successful day but it was also really cold and breezy…not to mention really wet! Then we spent another morning…up bright and early again…strolling up and down a gorgeous river hoping to catch a salmon. I guess these babies are usually about 30-40lbs…but after 5 hours, all we caught was seaweed. So we gave up and spent the afternoon at the lake.

Before we left the left coast, we made a stop to MrMan’s Aunt and Uncle. The kids were pooped from a long week so we didn’t get stay as long as we’d hoped, but it was great seeing family!

and then home we went!

We were so happy to be back on the east coast! Although, we came home to some broken luggage and a dead car battery, we made it home! Though, we already miss everyone…

Whirlwind of a Weekend

10 Aug

Whew! That weekend just flew by! Last Wednesday we had our third anniversary. Didn’t do anything to celebrate on that day but on Thursday we drove down to see some family and boot the kids for a few days. They didn’t mind so much, I think LittleMissie was glad to say goodbye! Now that I think about it, that was the first time peanut stayed away for an entire night. I sure missed them!

  Well that evening we drove back to town and got ready to enjoy a beautiful dinner at Savour. That was is gorgeous! Here’s a glimpse at what we enjoyed…

 My salmon patte and MrMan’s beef baguettes…

My chicken and prawns…it was SOO delicious!

MrMans veal dinner…

My coconut creme brulee…minus the big fortune cookie that had a beautiful necklace inside :) MrMan got a Cup O’Silk with an edible coffee cup. They were both SO delicious!

      Then the next day we woke up early and headed to Paramounts Kings Dominion. We were surprised with warm weather in the morning. I believe it was about 98 degrees at 11AM. We enjoyed rides all morning and the waterpark during the afternoon and games in the evening. Playing games has to be one of MrMan’s favorite things to do. We spent a lot of time(and money!) playing games with nothing to show until fifteen minutes before the park closed. The worker gave MrMan a few tips and after only a few tries he walked away like this..

Sorry its so dark, it was really late!

    Once we left the park we talked to our family and found out that peanut had been crying all day and night! Because we were so far and it was so late at night already, we just went home. Woke up early and headed down to see them. Took peanut to the ER and found out he had a double ear infection!! Poor little guy! That was a first for our family…

    A big dose of meds later…he was already acting better. So we stayed the night, went to our old church and met old friends. Heres out to lunch with Little missies friend…

 Then we headed home and Little Missie met her new friend…

Three down, Forty-seven more to go!

4 Aug

    Today is MrMan and my anniversary. Just three years ago today, we stood on a beautiful beach on Sunset Cove in Oregon. He picked me and I picked him. Sure I’ve wanted to give him back a few times…and I’m sure he’s felt the same way, but I know that God chose him for me. There is no one I’d rather spend my days with!

 

Here’s a look back…

 

Met. Got engaged. Traveled with friends…

Got married…

Celebrated birthdays and holidays…

 

Got pregnant…again.

Added a peanut to the family…

 

I love that melon head. Happy Anniversary baby…

Summer Days…

31 Jul

Oh summer…it took so long for you to get here and I feel like you’ll be leaving too soon!

 

We’ve had some thunderstorms lately. So we’ve been trying to squeeze in some outdoor time for the kiddos. Especially since peanut is walking now, its so much easier to relax at the park! We went to the playground on the property yesterday and the kids loved it. Well, at least Little Missie did. She played all around while her little brother walked a bit, crawled a bit, climbed a bit and ate dirt a lot.

While LittleMissie was playing I noticed there was a giant moth on the playplace. She was completely interested until she “accidentally” touched it. What can I say, shes her mothers daughter….

 

After the farmers market today we stopped at another park. It was getting pretty toasty outside and thought the kiddos would have some fun! Little Missie, like always, made some friends and played for a looong time. I’m pretty sure the older kid was playing pirates…as if she even knew what that was…lol. Then at the park they also have this little water area. Unfortunately…we didn’t bring and suits. Oh well, they still loved it!

 

What a Farnsworth…
