Scenes from the Beach

For the second summer in a row, Mom & Cindy have rented a beach house in Manzanita and all us kids descended upon it last week for some fun, food and family time. Being 7.5 months pregnant did curtail my activity level to the point that I did very little unless I could sit down often and have handy access to a bathroom but otherwise it was delightful. We had 4 nights down there and among the general highlights were:
  • Meeting Austin's new lady friend
  • A very successful crabbing expedition by all the guys plus Cindy & Kisha
  • Going shopping with my mother & cousin
  • Eating pie
  • Frisbee throwing with Jamie, Angela & Ken
  • Watching everyone get silly on very strongly mixed margaritas
  • Celebrated Mom & Ken's birthdays
  • Kite flying by Austin, Cindy & Ken
  • Mountain hiking by Cindy & Ken
  • Playing a rousing game of Catch Phrase
  • Seeing the Seaside aquarium, reliving our childhood beach trips there and absorbing all the "humanity" that flooded Seaside on Saturday
  • Plus lots of chatting and conversation
Cindy has a lot more pictures to illustrate these adventures but she literally took thousands of pictures so she's got to sort them out first. In the meantime, here are a few of mine...
