The Great Outdoors

So pretend it's still September. And this post isn't over 3 months late...

Last year we went to Kalaloch by the coast and camped there. We LOVED it. Close enough to the beach to walk there but not so close that you're cleaning out sand from every orifice for 2 weeks. So Taylor wanted to go camping for his birthday. Lucky for him that we had planned on doing that anyway.

First on the list was some beach action.
This is me sleeping:
And this is what happens when I fall asleep and fail to keep Melanie from crawling away:
Erik doing what he does best.

Warning: lots of pictures ahead.
I love this pose.
There's a short and easy hike close to the campsite. Off the trail a little is a small stream. We love to go there, eat lunch, and throw all the rocks into the water.

How can you NOT laugh at this picture?
We decided to go check out the tide pools that were a little further away than our beach. It was totally worth it, although it was freezing and incredibly windy.

This was our pitiful attempt to get a picture of all of us. I'm sure it will be much easier when they aren't all trying to go 50 different directions.
And for my two FAVORITE pictures. I have to laugh at this picture. It makes it look like we try to lock her in the tent the whole time we camp-
"Ooh, they're not looking. If I could actually walk, I would be able to make a run for it."

And the winner is:
Yes, we're totally white trash. By the end of the trip, between the two boys, we had about 5 or 6 pairs hanging off of our rack. Good times.
