Time to relax
We made it back to Portland in time for Tony to work both Thursday and Friday. I on the other hand was off work still, so Brent, Randi and I left for the beach Friday morning, then Tony joined us after work. It was so nice to be away from the pace of Portland. The weather was beautiful, the company was great, and so all had a great time. I really enjoyed staying at Lonnie and Sandy's in Ocean Park visiting, as well as discussing plans for next years family reunion. It also gave them a time to enjoy or get to know the kids. They have been nice enough to allow us to leave our 5th wheel at there place for the last couple months, so we don't have to bring it back and forth. Tony and I will go to pick it up if all goes well over Labor Day weekend. It is so much fun to watch Lonnie and Sandi in there setting so relaxed and able to have a fun time.
The new additions to Lonnie and Sandy's fun is beach scooters, and then motorcycles to get around in Vancouver. Brent and Randi enjoyed riding the scooter to the beach, but also on the beach since motorvihicles are allowed to drive right on the beach.
What made this weekend even more fun was enjoying it with Brent and Randi. Randi has never been to the Washington coast or the Oregon coast, so they ventured on there own down the coast to Seaside for breakfast, then Mo's for fish and chips lunch in Cannon Beach, and there final stop was Tillamock Cheese Factory for squeekie cheese, and ice cream. By Sunday night when we all got back home we were tired out, and so not ready to get back to reality.
The Worst part is knowing Brent and Randi will be leaving on Thursday.
I've really enjoyed having kids around again.
