Last year we started this great tradition to take the kids down to Seaside Oregon. We couldn’t wait to go again this year and once again we invited the sun! We stayed in condos and it was a blast. The kids loved running from room to room, having slumber parties, heading to the beach, flying the red barron kite, feeding the seals, the carousel and we couldn’t do Seaside without hitting Pronto Pup for some corn dogs.
The guys fit in some time at Maddie’s basketball tourney down here. I love seeing the kids having so much fun together. It occurred to me earlier this week that we are hitting that age with Bennett that he will actually be able to recall these great memories as an adult. He will remember the craziness of having 7 children under 5 years old in two hotel rooms and I know someday he will understand the magic that is this amazing family he was born into… it was hard to ignore as those kids scampered around on the beach all playing together… Here is 6 of the 7… Reece and B ready to feed the seals their fish… Uncle Joel taking the kiddos for a potty break on the boardwalkWe even hit the outdoor pool and I jumped at the chance to get this little one in her swim suit… she LOVED the pool! If you look closely you can see three dads sitting in the kitty pool with the three big kids… this is the view from our room Popcorn and cartoons with Grandma!!
