Well.. I haven't posted anything in a very long time. I have been too addicted to Facebook I think.. and running short on time most days. My days are only 24 hours long.... But I figured I have a few minutes right now.. Here are a few pics from our Easter Vacation... I know its called Spring Break now.. but growing up it was Easter Vacation.. so I regress to that time. I took 2 days off work and we headed out to the Oregon Coast. We ended up staying in Gearhart, OR which is about 1 hour 45 minutes away. Brian couldn't get time off work so it was me and the 4 kidlets.. I had to call in reinforcemtns though.. me and 4 kids alone was kinda daunting.. so I invited the kids babysitter to come with us and help keep me sane. We had the BEST time ever. We rented a lovely 2 bedroom Condo and we had a pool/jacuzzi.. the beach was right out the window and so we spent much of our time beach combing for shells, sand dollars, etc. We even learned how to "clam". Razor Clams are abundant on the OR coast.. so that was fun. This is also the first beach I have ever driven on. Growing up in CA I always saw the lifeguards driving on the beach and I was always a little jealous.. so I got my chance! We actually drove in the water a bit too.... later to find out it isn't soo good for the belt in the engine of the Suburban... Who knew?? OH WELL. Its a memory! so, here are a few pics of the kids freezing their butts off.. but all in the name of fun. We wish more family lived close so that we could enjoy these things together!!!!!!

our kitchen.. in the condo.. much fun
