Life's a Beach

Kent had last week off, and let me tell you, it was about time he had a few days off. So we packed up the kids, squished all our camping gear into the car (and even some on top...) and headed over to Kalaloch by the Pacific Coast to go camping. It was the perfect campsite- close enough to the beach to walk there, but not on the beach, so you're not trying to shake sand out of your underwear as you sleep (though it still found its way back in small amounts). The weather was really nice- you only needed a light sweater during the day, and even the nights didn't get too cold (unless you're 7 months pregnant and have to waddle to the bathroom 3 times in the middle of the night- then you wish for your bathroom at home that's only 10 feet away without the fear of being ambushed by a rabbid raccoon on the way). Our campsite was awesome thanks to some recommendations from friends. There were a ton of fallen trees and roots to climb on so they had a lot more room to wander but were still close enough to see. Here's a view from up high of what was right next to our campsite- Here are a few pictures of the hikes. Kent wanted to get a picture of the two boys sitting nicely, but it was like pulling teeth to get Erik to sit still for more than 2 seconds.

The beach was lovely, though would have been nicer if not for the hundreds of jellyfish right next to the water. But they loved being able to just play in the sand. This is Erik insisting he needs to step on it to really check it out and me insisting he doesn't-

This is, by far, my favorite picture that Kent took while we were there-

Kent also turned 31 while we were camping. Although I wasn't able to make him his favorite birthday cake while we were there, he at least got peach cobbler. I love you, honey! Thanks for being such a rockin' husband and daddy!

FUN! Those photos are great. HOWEVER, you have to figure out how to post them so you can click on them and enlarge them. Otherwise I can never get a good enough look! (and I'm sure I'm not alone:) ps- are you coming down in October?
