More to come...

I have so much more to post, but my butt is numb and its time for me to go to bed :)Tata for now!


Every year we go to Seaside for an evening of Skee Ball and Elephant Ears. The cool thing about Cannon Beach is that they passed a law years ago that no commercial business could come into the area so its all mom and pop shops. I love that about Cannon Beach. Seaside on the other hand is not that way so they have lots of loud arcades to go to and things to do.
As you can see Julia did not like that ride, Jace does whatever Julia does and Eliot was thinking,"I dont see what the big deal is? My cousins are whimps!" But they all liked the Merry Go Round so everyone left happy. There seem to be a lot of photos of me, all taken at the Elephant Ear shop......

Cannon Beach Bakery

The Cannon Beach Bakery has been around forever. One of our favorite stops in the week. Jace loved his doughnut! He ate all the chocolate off the top then handed the half eaten doughnut to his mom went around to everyone looking for another doughnut with chocolate. The love of suger sure starts young :)

The Family

My parent bought us all shirts when they were in Thailand this last June. They say "Coca Cola", except the boys t-shirt's because they couldn't find ones small enough for them. Of course you must notice that Jana and Lindsay are HUGE! Just kidding, not huge but well on their way to giving me more wonderful nieces or nephews. Actually, Jay and Lin's are having another boy which they are going to name Owen Thomas. Isn't that cute! Jana and Justin are keeping it a surprise, even from themselves. I hope for Julia's sake she gets a sister. I am so blessed with such a wonderful family!

Mom Dad and Jules

We met my Mom and Dad in Portland Saturday night and stayed in a hotel with them. I begged them to bring Julia with them and they heeded my wishes and brought her. The other picture is my Dad trying to sleep while my Mom, Curt and I talked late into the night. We had a lot of fun! It was a great way to start out vacation.

Bosie State

For those of you who can appreciate the best college football game ever played, my dear husband really wanted to visit Bosie States football field. For those of you who have no idea what I am talking about I urge you to You Tube last years Tostito Bowl between Bosie State and Oklahoma. By far the best college game, maybe the best football game I have ever seen. The fact that they pulled off the "Statue of Liberty" as the last play of the game still amazes me.
The picture of Curt on the phone is when he was talking to Bill saying,"Dude! guess where I am?" It was a fun little stop in the race to Cannon Beach.

The Trip there...

We are back from vacation and had such an awesome time!! It went by way too fast of course, somtimes I wish I could live on vacation.We started out our trip to Cannon Beach Friday after work and to save money we slept in the back of our Passat in a Wal-Mart parking lot. LOL!!! It was SO fun! Except for the fact that we are large people and it was tight. But what an adventure, a memory we will never forget.

Jace and Leslie

I just had to post this adorable picture of Jace and Leslie! Isnt he just a doll!!! Im sure that you all bore of pictures of my neice and nephews and food but since we have no children of our own, we must post about those.


So Leilani got on my case about my lack of new posts so I thought I would post before I go on vacation today!!! Curt and I are driving, yes driving, up to Cannon Beach, OR for our annual family vacation. This will be our 30th year at the beach! Can you believe it? I have been there every year since I was 4 months old.
We love driving and are so excited about taking a road trip! Im even more excited about seeing the kids!
I wont be posting for the next week or so but I will have lots of pictures to post when I get back.
