Cannon Beach!

The three kiddos playing independently with Haystack Rock in the background. I had wanted a better picture, but they were moving too fast. I'm glad they had fun.

Today we went to Cannon Beach with Nana, Auntie Erin, Uncle Jared, and cousins Sonya and Audrey. Poor Nathan had to stay home and work. It was a bit chilly for my taste…but then it is a rare day that isn’t for me at the beach…and I guess I should look on the bright side and realize I got to skip a scorcher in the valley.

After our fun beach day, Elias conked out for a very late nap. We had to wake him up after only an hour or so to go to dinner (Nana treated us to Red Robin…yumm!).
