Ahhh! We have done a ton of fun things lately...but I never have the camera with me!! We have gone and played in the water fountains and gone to the free kid movies at the theater and gone to parks. Aaron took Noah to a Father Son activity last week. Poor Noah got thrown from a big wheel into a fence and got a smashed up, bloody nose. Then, when they were sitting around the camp fire, a spark bounced out of the fire and singed through Noah's hair and burned his scalp. He still has a scab! We have gone to the Farmer's Market every weekend and spent way too much money on berries and yummy food! It's been a fun summer so far. Yesterday, we were able to go to the ocean. It was a beautiful day...not too hot and not too cold.
Joshua enjoyed playing in the sand for the first time. He loved watching the ocean. He loves the water!!
He also loved eating as much sand as we'd let him! What a silly little boy.
It wouldn't be a trip to the coast without having an ice cream cone for lunch and sampling lots of cheese!
We brought our kites and flew them. We have a really cool dragon kite, but for some reason, we have no pictures of it!
You'll have to view this one big to truly appreciate it. I found an old rotting star fish in the sand. The kids were pretty scared of it at first...afraid it would bite them. Amazingly enough, I convinced the scardest boy in the universe that it wouldn't hurt him and he picked it up. He ran miles around that beach trying to scare Arwen with it. It was so funny! She screamed and ran for her life and Noah ran at her with a devilish look on his face like he was trying to hurt her!
Joshua enjoyed helping me fly the kite while watching the other two kiddies.

Glad you are having a fun, busy summer. Joshy Squashy is so big. I can't believe how much he has grown in the last couple of months. Looks like a great spot on the beach too.

Austin was obsessed with some kites people brought to our ward campout. He kept whining to me "my turn, my turn", but the older kids hogged them. It was so sad. I guess we should get a kite for the little guy.

Ohhhh, you are just making my mouth water Arwen. I would LOVE to have a Tillamook Icecream treat.
