Nicholas' favorite thing to do while Kieran was playing t-ball--ride "the horses"!

In the early afternoon on Friday, we met our friends from Idaho to caravan off to the beach house. On the way, we stopped for Tillamook ice cream!
left to right: Ari, Myla, Beck, Ken, Shelia, Chris, Mike, and Kieran (not pictured: me and Nick)

The kids had a whale of a time on the beach!

Me with Nick (who, sadly, had a bit of a tummy bug this weekend so wasn't feeling great...)--notice the VERY wet Kieran behind me! Kieran, Beck, and the girls got absolutely soaked and sandy each time we went to the beach!

We had a really nice time with the Dengler-Shaws...Shelia and I were able to take a wander on Saturday afternoon to Nehalem and Manzanita while the men watched the kids. On Saturday night, the adults were even able to play a few board games! (Before children, we used to spend many a beach house evening playing board games!) All in all, a very fun weekend but alas too short!

The D-S family had to head out somewhat early on Sunday because they were driving all the way back to Idaho in one day! We were sad to see them go!
