Family Time at the Oregon Coast

Fun Photos...

Flip-flops and footprints . . .

Take a sweet, grandfatherly man like this . . .
. . . add an arsenal of water guns

an UN-limited water supply . . .
a little revenge (just kidding, Jeremy!)
. . . and what do you end up with?

Gangsta Grandpa, that's what!



Why can't I get her to pose like Rachel can? She just runs from me when I have a camera . . .


Me, just chillin, watching the kids (and Grandpa!) play


Seriously, he needs that thing surgically implanted (and he WON't use a Blue tooth thingy)
The clouds didn't come out until we were ready to leave - and that's a miracle, at the Oregon coast

Time to sample a little cheese at the Tillamook Cheese Factory
(really what we did was pig out on the delicious ice cream)

Bare Beach Toes. . .

I am totally jealous. The weather looks amazing, the sand is gorgeous, and the company looks like a bunch of fun. What a cool trip. Awesome pictures too.

Oh my goodness--I heart the Tillamook factory. I have only been there once, when my Dad was recouping at a friends beach house after open heart surgery. It was AMAZING!!

You had much better weather than we did--LOVE your pictures and the fun spirit that your can feel from your Dad just by looking at the pics.
