hello Monday….

hello Oregon coast, we love to visit you
hello ocean treasures
hello camp food
hello campers, as happy as kids at a candy store
and hello quiet week, minus three kids who are with Mimi and Grampie for the next two weeks
yes, you read that right-two weeks without kids.  of course one of those weeks we’ll be surrounded by awesome teenagers at summer camp.  it’s going to be a quiet week followed by a really fun (yet exhausting week)
what’s exciting in your world right now?


  1. wowzers! 2 weeks!!? :) Our kiddos will be headed to 'grandma and grandpa camp later this week for 6 days.....ahh....

  2. i don't think there are any camp sites quite as lovely as those on the oregon coast. they are divine!! enjoy your free time!

  3. I live in Portland so we have plans to visit the coast and show our European friends visiting the beautiful (and mostly chilly) Pacific coast. :)

  4. I LOVE Oregon. I think I would move there in a second. Get away from the So cal craziness. YEs, the pics were from Smith Rock! Well done. We went to a family wedding in Redmond and stayed at Eagle Crest. Visited Bend, too. LOVE it. I am not a camper but with pancakes like that, I would be a camper immediately! xoxo looks like you are having a ton of fun. :)

  5. Wow, Gina, spectacular photos! Esp. love Levi jumping over the little stream. Looks like an amazing time to be there. We're shooting for next week, a few days at the coast for our 15th anniversary. If you know of someone who rents a cheap cabin on the coast, let me know. Yeah, we are that unprepared, still don't know where we'll stay.

  6. Gorgeous, gorgeous country! Two weeks w/o kids? I cannot imagine. Enjoy! With seven kiddos, I have been alone only a couple of times in the last 24 years. :)

  7. 2 weeks? awesome! enjoy. cool camping pics. i miss camping--we haven't gone since having the babies. wilder is 3 and story is 1...i bet they'd be perfect campers. thanks for commenting on my blog. it blessed me.


I love to hear from you! Thanks for coming by and sharing your thoughts with me.
