let's go to the beach!
















My boys <3


After church on Sunday morning we decided to take a spontaneous trip to the beach. It was hot (mid 90's!) in Portland so we knew it would be a nice day to head to the coast. Sometimes spontaneous trips are the most fun in my opinion!

Charlie loves anything to do with water from sipping out of a straw to splashing around in it. As soon as he saw the ocean he pointed with both fingers at the water and let out a loud glee of excitement! The water was really cold and it was so funny to see him tip toeing through it. He just couldn't get enough of it and we just couldn't get enough of that happy little smile.

We also brought Norman along and I know he enjoyed running freely on the open beach. With Charlie around he doesn't always get as much attention as he used to so we try to bring him along whenever we can. 

Charlie's first trip to the beach will surely be a memorable one!

glorious weekends






The weekend is here once again which means breakfast together, lounging around, church on Sunday, naps, long afternoon strolls in the neighborhood. There is always something to do and we get to do it together which I love most. I feel like the weeks are so busy with work and life's responsibilities that we barely get to squeeze in a few hours together as a family over dinner and into the evening before the days are gone. Weekends are different because we are all home and I so look forward to our time together.

These are some pictures from a few Sunday's ago. It was cloudy and cooler so we went on a nice long walk. We stopped at Hawthorne Fish House to catch up on the score of the World Cup soccer game and ate some delicious crab chowder. We then roamed random streets and took the long way home while admiring all the beautiful, colorful homes and streets.
 
Summer days are nice and long and if we can be outside, you bet we are! I'm sure glad the weekend is here once again. Happy Friday!
