Over Memorial Day weekend we packed up the whole family and headed south. We spent three nights on the Oregon Coast in Lincoln City, Oregon. It was such a special family time. When it was raining we toured the Tillamook Cheese Factory and a petting zoo.
The weather did clear up for us and we spent a lot of time on the beach. The boys really liked building sand castles and finding seashells. They really liked watching people fly kites on the shore. We even saw some wind surfers.
We also drove about an hour along the coast to visit Newport, Oregon. Here we explored a haunted lighthouse and a local brewery. The drive to Newport was amazing. It was right on the Pacific Ocean. At one point, we just pulled out to admire the view. While gazing at God's creation, we saw a whale!! How cool is that???
It is amazing how the sound of the sea can make you realize how amazing God really is! I really looking forward to more family vacations like this in the future!
I think one of the highlights for Owen and Seamus was that we got donuts for breakfast!!
