Back from the Beach!

We are a little late with our blog post this week as it was another 3 day weekend and we escaped to the beach for a few days. We enjoyed beautiful weather on Saturday and Sunday but woke up in the m iddle of the night last night to loud winds and rain - the power even went out in the middle of the night!

Saturday we enjoyed a walk on the beach - walking all the way into town where we did a bit of window shopping. We enjoyed dinner at our favorite pizza place - Marzanas and then watched a movie and did some reading. Sunday we attended church at the Neahkahnie Branch - the girls were excited because it was the Primary program which is their favorite meeting of the year. There were only about 8 kids in the Primary. Seven of them were under the age of 7 so the adults did a lot of the talking and the singing wasn't very loud but it was cute to see.

After dinner on Sunday we drove Cali to Camp McGruder where the Concert Choir was having their retreat for the next 3 days. (just south of Manzanita in Rockaway)

This morning, Monday, we woke up to high winds and rains and got the house cleaned and headed home. It was a good day to leave the beach!

We didn't get down to the beach until mid day on Saturday because we went to the playoff football game Friday night. Westview won big time against North Salem so they are into the next playoff game. I sat in the rain most of the evening at the Krispy Kreme table while the kids sold the doughnuts in the stands.

This week was a busy one for Cali. Her Children's Theater class put on their production of Franklin at the local elementary school. Cali played Franklin the turtle and then she was inducted into the National Honor Society that evening. It was the same night as Standard's Night so Tessa went to that and Cali and I showed up late. They had a great speaker from Idaho who is an EFY speaker.

We had Grandma and Grandpa Best over for dinner Tuesday night to celebrate Grandpa's Birthday that was Thursday but they would be in Texas so we celebrated early. I made him a butterscotch pie - his favorite. After dinner Grandma and I headed to the genealogy class we have been taking.

Jim went to Seattle Thursday and Friday for business and I attended a funeral and helped with the food for a former home teacher of ours -second funeral in two weeks:(
Boy Update:
Clark had a quiet week of work, school, flag football game on Saturday - it was a "no date' weekend for him.
Logan and the Young Ambassadors had a 3 day tour to somewhere in Montana, Idaho Falls and Pocatello. The highlight of course was getting to stay at Grandma and Grandpa Wilkes along with 3 of his buddies and be spoiled with all of grandma's home cooking. He also was able to attend a session in the Idaho Falls Temple with Grandpa. He said the shows went great.
