Cole waiting for Grandma at the airport so we can get on the airplane.
These babies were the cutest together.
Vanessa was a little aggressive with Ryan.
We had enough time in Portland on both ends to go to Cartlandia for food that I dream about at night. There is an amazing cart with a buffalo chicken wrap, another one with El Salvadorian pupusas and of course Voodoo Doughnuts.
We rented a house right on the beach for three nights. If I weren't missing Jared and my other kids, I would have never come home. This was the view from our house. Vanessa likes it too.
Cole & Allie were in heaven chasing waves, digging in the sand and being super naughty together. We weren't there five minutes before they had colored all over the back of a door, stuck stickers all over the chairs and walls and put cheerios inside the sheets in my bed. Good thing they are cute because they were naughty.
This is pure joy. I love it. Minus the crying Vanessa.
Low tide and beautiful sunshine
Best grandma ever. She took these two on lots of walks.
Snuggling up with Vanessa
Heather snuggling Ryan. Those babies were cozy.
There were a few difficult moments. Like wearing a baby on the front pack and having to carry a sandy, wet toddler back.
We wore those kids out.
The last morning was a little drizzly but still incredible. My mom and sister took over so I could go on a run. I could not dream of better scenery for a workout. I was sore in places on my calves and ankles that got a whole different kind of workout with that sand. I loved it.
