A trip to the Beach

We just spent a super nice, long weekend on the Oregon coast with my family. My parents rented a house for us in Seaside and it was so nice to have so much space to hang out in, especially for Brooklynn! The best part of our weekend was that we didn't have an agenda, we could do whatever we wanted. We went to Tilamook to tour the factory and get some ice cream. (The factory wasn't all that exciting, but the ice cream was good and we got some cheese!) Aside from that we just hung out at "home" and played games and spent time playing at the beach. Brooklynn was in total heaven with all the sand and water to play with. We totally lucked out with the weather the whole weekend! We had some overcast skies, but it wasn't cold and rainy! (Can't ask for much more than that in the Pacific Northwest).
I am about to embark on picture overload, reader beware!
On our way and so excited to be in the car!
We took our Kinect and Brooklynn kept
waving her arm at it and trying to play!
When that didn't work, she would run up to whoever
was playing and wait for them to pick her up.
On our way to Tillamook
Checking out the cheese with Grandma

Brooklynn and Grandma spotted a bird!
(This is Brooklynn's go to action when she sees an animal)
Pure and utter joy!

Playing in the tidepools...

First time in the ocean
And she's an old pro!
"Let me go...I want to PLAY!!"
(I love her ruffle bum!)
We played in the sand....
And Brooklynn destroyed whatever was created!
Or she ate it!
Brooklynn even played some Foosball with Aunt Ali and Uncle Kyle. 

We had such a good time and were so happy that we were able to spend some good quality time with my family. And especially that Ali and Kyle were able to be with us (it had been almost a year since we had seen Kyle). Thanks for a great weekend!
