Playing Catch Up...

I know I haven't been blogging much.  I'm having camera issues and life has just been a bit busy.  So here I am, back with a phone photo catch-up...We are currently in Government Camp, on Spring Break.  These pictures start today and go back to the last update... This morning Ava looked outside and saw nothing but snow.  She decided she was going to ski down the driveway.  No one else was interested in going out there, but we were all thrilled to watch her from the warmth of the indoors, through the window.  She got all geared up, all on her own, grabbed her skis and started the hike up the long driveway.  When she had made it about three quarters of the way up she jumped off the road into someone's driveway, we all tried to see why she had done that, wondering if there was a car coming or something, as there is rarely traffic on this road.  Sure enough, the very worst kind of car was coming, the snow plow!!  He breezed down and shoveled all that snow away, and if that wa…

Anniversary Beach Weekend

John & I got to sneak away for the weekend for our anniversary last weekend.  We hit the nine year mark March 4th.  : ) We decided to drive south and hike through Cape Perpetua, which is two miles outside of Yachats. It is such a beautiful area and fun to hike in a new spot!

There is a spot here called Thor's Well, I've seen some pretty cool pictures of it online, like this one: The tide wasn't really favorable to see it in all its glory, and you have to be a little crazy to get down there anyway so we took a pass on that one.  Good thing we have the internet to help us see it all close and pretty!

Don't be scared, he is stuffed...

So much beauty in this world, so fun to explore it!
We were blessed with perfect weather.  
We even grabbed a bottle of wine, 2 beach chairs and our books and just sat on the beach and soaked it all in.  What a great weekend! 

Happy Nine Years My Love!!

I am so very grateful for you, for us, for this family we have created. 

Love you.
