whoo! first post of 2014, a very happy new year to you!
we got back from our little christmas/new year roadtrip a couple of days ago and i could not wait to get these pics off my camera! it was a pretty short trip, just five days, but it was the perfect amount of time to feel like we really had a mini holiday and some time to get our heads together before the new year.
we drove 3-5 hours each day and the boys were so great.. amazingly good little travellers.. and this turned out to be awesome time for ol and i to catch up and t.a.l.k. and t.h.i.n.k. ...seriously, at home with the two little rascals around and never ending laundry, cleaning etc etc etc when do we ever sit still, for hours at a time to just think, mull things over and chat?? never!
we decided we should take looong drives more often!
the way a roadtrip like ours usually goes is that we have an ultimate destination and plan of how to get there but our sleep stops just depend on where we roll up and where looks good that day. and sometimes we stumble across a gem of a place that is the highlight of the whole adventure.
on this trip we were originally planning to hit newport beach in oregon but a friend told us there wasn't camping there anymore and suggested nehalem bay instead.. and boy are we glad he did!
the weather was great, which of course helped, but the campground and beach were soooo beautiful... w.o.w.
the beach was just a short walk from our camping spot so the pics show us there before lunch and then before dinner when the sun was going down. great memories!
some pics from new years day coming soon..
