Lincoln City part 1

I really should be in bed right now I am so beyond tired & why am I tired you ask? Well, for one thing I am still sick. I hack up a lung every night and two- because being on vacation is exhausting (seriously). But I figured I have been a terrible blogger so I had better post something and quick.

Here is the first day that we went to the beach. It was so windy that the sand was pelting the back of Lloyd's legs and it was also so freaking cold that all the kids had to wear jackets of one kind or another. Although my crazy son Parker stripped down to his swim trunks as soon as they hit the beach and pulled a totally Joey from Friends and was buried in the sand. Freezing or not the boy was bound and determined to have a good time. I didn't get the best of pictures as I was worried about sand getting in my camera. But none the less stuff got on my lens or in my lens and now it shows little dots on all my pictures. It's like my photographer's nightmare come true. NOT GOOD!
Yes this is my son Corbin sporting a cherry jacket. Luckily Aunt Tia came to the rescue as we forgot Corbin's coat up at the house. The boy was warm and that's all that mattered. Addison didn't care for all the wind and cold temps. Sorry Tia you can kill me in the morning this is the only picture I have of her at the beach.Well I should get my buns in bed it's way late and we are going to the Aquarium here in a few short hours. Should be lots of fun taking 14 kids + 10 adults to see lots of marine life. Ahh good times. G'night
I really hope this post made sense. It's late, I'm medicated and really tired....

  1. I'm sorry you are so sick. Looks like my advice to bring jackets came in handy. I've only been to the coast since living here ONCE where we didn't have wind killing our ear drums and weather warm enough to even WANT to wear a swim suit.

  2. Sounds like our day at Daytona beach the day after the hurricane came thru. The beach was closed but i was bound and determined to get beach pictures. We jumped the horses saying 'beach closed' and got pictures. The wind was wicked and slapped our bodies with sand while we tried to get pictures of us at the beach to say we got there.

    I'm sick too! The chiropractor asked why when i just had bronchitis in april. I dunno that's what i pay YOU for! He said that the bacteria is still in me and didn't get killed off last time so he gave me something to do just that. In the mean time i'm keeping up my oregano oil and lemon baths and i'm feeling much better. I hope you start feeling better, vaca is not the time to be sick darlin! XO

  3. ♡ That sucks being sick while on vacation! Hopefully the weather clears up for you soon!

  4. Hope you are feeling better soon. I am sorry to hear about the camera. Our Minolta that we had when Nojah was little still has sand in the lens. It's very frustrating. It's funny how most kids can see past the high winds, pelting sands, and cold water and still get out there and have a great time. Addison's a bit young to see past all that. Don't let the weather get you down. It's typical for the coast! Enjoy the rest of your trip.

  5. Looks way fun! cold but fun!
    I probably would have forgot to pack jackets!
    YEp, I am that good of a mom!!!
    I think the pics are cute of the 8 month photo torture shoot!
    You will be glad that you have them!
    I am impressed with your talent!!
    I know I told you that I love your flag, but I looked at it again and I really love it!!!
    Good job!!
    How is the scrapping going? Wish I was there!!!
    Don't stay up too late!!!

  6. I sure hope you feel better, we had the same weather but I wasn't sick - that would have been miserable, I'm so sorry you are feeling like crap. The aquarium is fun though so I sure hope that turns out well for you.

  7. Sorry you aren't feeling well! I have only been to the Oregon coast once and it was stunning but very very windy and cold.

  8. That is weird to think that it is that cold!! Hopefully you feel better!


  9. sorry you're sick! Hope it warms up for you and that your camera is okay!!

  10. Glad to see that you still had a good time despite the weather. You never know with the coast what you are going to get. Can't wait to see more picks. Good for Parker for toughing it out and getting in the sand.

  11. I love your beach pics. Sick on vacation stinks! Are you getting sick of all my comments? I have been swamped so I was behind.

  12. Ahhhhh, home!!!! I am a girl from the Northwest, trapped in south Texas, errrrrrrrg!! I have a new appreciation for being able to grow up in such a wonderful, healthy, safe, outdoorsy place now that I have kids of my own. I'm trying to get back....we were at Depoe Bay this summer for about a week, the Coast is my favorite place on earth.
