I love summer - LOVE! Oregon weather during the summer months has been pretty disappointing for the last few years until this summer. I decided before summer even began that we were going to utilize the nice weather as much as we could. I wanted to be outdoors, spend more time with family and really make enjoying life a priority. As crazy busy as it was for the last few months, it was so great to get away many weekends and just have fun. So I apologize for the lack of posts, but I've been out enjoying what little sunshine we get around here and the rest of the time, I've been working. ;) Here are some of this summer's highlights!
In the beginning, we went to Disneyland...And Matt flexed his muscles.And we went on many walks to the park with Indy - Bush Pasture ParkThis walk was on our 10 year anniversary - 10 years since we officially became a couple. :)Matt surprised me with a weekend getaway to the Zoo and beach... I'm wearing my new Yed Omi jewelry that I purchased from the designer at the Salem Art Fair this July.Animal watching...We stayed in Astoria at the Cannery Pier Hotel and ate Bosnian food in the town, which was delicious. We also visited the Goonies house. Isn't that so cool?Went sightseeing along the coast...At Cape Meares...Checked out the Octopus Tree.Stayed cool in shorts and tanks...Rented a beach house with my family at Rockaway Beach for the weekend - which was soooo awesome! We played all day on the beach, got tans, ate great food...Played in the sand with my nephew, Gavin, and my mom...More playing in the sand...I could live at the beach forever with weather like this.We went to Enchanted Forest. Here is my mom and dad at the shooting gallery.Posing with my sister.Log slide! Hubby and my dad...Family portraits...Making wishes... if you look real close, you can tell it's fake. ;)Exploring all the secret spots...Strolling...Entering the Witch's mouth...Eaten alive...getting dizzy in the crooked house...Slides!!!Okay - all four of us crammed into the log ride and made a BIG splash... I LOVE summer! I hope it never ends!!!!
