This past week we went to Long Beach (WA). We had a good time overall...some minor negatives (Chris got stung by a bumble bee;Ethen got a large sliver in his finger and wouldn't let us get it out; Ethen got sand in his eyes and rubbed it in; the hot water heating element went out in the cabin we were staying in and after 4 hours of work we still couldn't get it fixed...John and Kim came and fixed it in a jiffy...thanks guys!; and...we went on a way-too-long walk and ended up carrying Ethen for about 2 miles...argh!)
We got to relax, watch some TV, go for a lot of walks, pet a couple horses near the cabin, eat Scoopers ice cream and be together as a family with no other distractions. We saw a beautiful sunset the first evening we were there. We also got to go on several beach walks. It was a nice time to get away, just the 4 of us. Here are some pictures...we took our camera, but never unpacked it...these were taken with our phones. :-)
(By the way, Judah is doing a better job of sleeping. The soft pillow thing is really working, he sleeps about 4 hours at a time, day and night!)
