6 wonderful years

On October 4th we celebrated our 6year wedding anniversary. For all of our previous anniversaries we have managed to get away to either the beach, Seattle, or Downtown Portland. This year was no exception, but a little different than normal. We had 3 co travelers. {grin}
We made it a family weekend to Lincoln City. It was a great trip. We got a great room with an awesome view and private beach access. It even had a separate room for Madison so we didn't have to be in bed at 8pm as well. We watched several movies, went to Mo's for lunch, made sand castles (Madison style), did some shopping, and just had good family time. Everyone did very well. The boys even got their first feel of sand.









Micah kept digging his toes in.

Mason was pretty unimpressed. Not much reaction. Just wiggled his feet a bit.

There were some cool sea anemone in these rock pools.


Yes they are swaddled. It was nap time. Hey it worked and sister got to play.


Following Daddy.


She was totally afraid of the water. It snuck right up and she freaked out. Notice Matt laughing.


The finished sand castle. This is like number 5. She kept smashing them.

Our supposedly rainy weekend was beautiful. We cannot wait to do it again.

Thank you babe for a wonderful weekend. I cannot wait for many more years to come.

Looks like you had a great time! It's crazy how much our lives have changed. We did the same thing for our anniversary, went to Lincoln City with all 3 kiddos. Definitely different than before kids, but wouldn't change it for the world!

YEA for you to celebrate with all the kiddos! We were at that wedding in Wisconsin for our five year. So I guess technically we celebrated somewhere...but I have a feeling we'd have stayed home if we weren't there. When we go back to MN this coming summer (so far away!) I plan on surprising Dirk with a night away while my parents watch the kids. It'll be our first time (GASP).
