Day at the beach!

We spent Presidents Day at the beach. It was not quite as warm as we had hoped for, but the kiddies just loved it, and that's what counts. We went to Seaside, and realized once we got there, that we had never been before! It was fun to walk down the mainstreet and go in all the candy and toy stores. We even played a few games in a huge arcade. Jaxon just kept saying, "What a fun day at the beach!"

There's nothing like sun, sand, popcorn, taffy, and ice cream to make a day kids dream about!

Where are you guys in the last photo? We frequent Seaside and I have never had the privilege of sitting by that huge plastic cow.

Sounds like you had a great day! There i nothing like having your kids tell you that they had so much fun. I can't believe how big Jaxon has gotten. It seems like it have been forever since we were all up in University Village. I'm glad to hear that your family is doing so well.

what a wonderful day. spending a whole day together as a family is such a luxury for us. we thought about the beach that day, but thought it might be too crowded. good to know someone was enjoying it with their little ones.

What a LIFE! I would just love to see the beach right now! Maybe I should drive the 3 hours and do so! Too cold. Anyhow, adorable pics and it looks like Jaxon is wrestling a snake in the one pic. Also, I LOVE those sorting and stacking cups from IKEA. One of MY favorite toys. ;-)

Loved these pics. Wish I could go with you to the beach. Dave is here now. We all just got over the flu. Yes, I noticed the IKEA cups. Glad they get some good use. Happy Birthday, Jake!!!

We almost did that! We are WAY overdue on a beach trip, but can't seem to make it happen.

Yeah, where's the cow? Your readers are dying to know.

Stephanie. I love you. Your phone call came at the perfect time...just before the puking and crying started and made my day! Food was delicious one of my all time favs.

The cow was in an ice cream shop that sold Tillamook ice cream. I'm not sure which one, but that's where I found him!
