Home from the Beach

When we got home from the beach on Thursday we had to get a little Portland fix before the kids all headed out.  We also wanted to share our favorite pizza place and ice cream place with Wynn and Emily and kids!

We headed down to Escape from NY Pizza for a slice!

They liked it as much as we do!  It was a beautiful Portland evening.
We then walked down the street to Salt and Straw for our ice cream.  The line wasn't too long- only about 20 minutes or so.
Addi wasn't too thrilled with her ice cream sundae  but Logan liked his ice cream!

One last picture together before they all head off!

Week at the Beach 2015 Day 7

July 8, 2015  We headed to Hug Point.  One of our favorite places to hang out when it's  a little windy on Manzanita Beach.

We found a fun little swimming hole for the kids to jump into.
 Addi even did it!
Jacky was a little hesitant but she did it!

Even Jim got into the fun!
There were lots of games on the beach too!  We brought Grandma Best down with us and he played some Blongo Ball..  He and grandma came down to join us for a few days.

Spencer and Tracy drove down for the day too.

Love my girls!

And love these girls too!!

It has been a wonderful Week at the Beach - Wilkesanita 2015!

For dinner we had a birthday celebration for Grandma Best's 85th birthday complete with a pinata!

Watch out for grandma when she has a bat in her hand!
We celebrated Tessa and Spencer's birthday too - all the July birthdays.

Birthday dinner on the patio.

Week at the Beach 2015 Day 6

Day 6 started off with a hike up Neahkahnie Mountain.  It was a beautiful clear day so the view was amazing!  Pretty much another perfect day at the beach.

We then headed down to Wheeler to do some kayaking in Nehalem Bay.

Getting the perfect selfie!

There was a little beach time reading that afternoon.

 That evening we headed down to the beach for another perfect sunset.

 No trip to the beach would be complete with out a jumping picture or two!

 I love my crazy kids!

I got a picture of Jacki taking a picture!

 All week long Ward calling me Granny Leigh Anney thanks to a bribe from his dad!  The girls called me MeMe which is french for grandmother.  I much preferred that!
 Those faces!!
