Vacation {My Life}

Over the Labor Day holiday weekend we visited Newport, OR with my Brother-in-Law and family. It was a nice little getaway, even if the weather didn't cooperate as much as we would have liked.

...sealions down at the wharf & my nephew trying to see out of the viewing station...

...the view from the house where we were staying...

...we took our girls to the Oregon Coast Aquarium, with Fum-Fum (grandma)...
Anna loved seeing all the different animal, Grace was sleepy and enjoyed the not so great stroller bed.

One day we drove up the coast a bit to see the angry waves crashing on the rocks. It was a bit chilly and very windy, but that doesn't stop Anna from posing!

...the sky was beautiful, it was really grey & cloudy, but when the sun would shine through, it was amazing...

...waiting for Auntie, Brad & Brandon to get done shopping we went down to a whale watching bench and watched the ocean at Depoe Bay...

...On our way home Monday we stopped at The Wildlife Safari in Winston, OR, we enjoyed our lunch with a peacock...

...then drove through the park, Gracie enjoyed standing up and NOT being in her carseat, I think she grew to highly dislike it during this trip...

...Anna got to 'drive' and loved checking out ALL the animals...

...the last image of the day, taken in the "America" section of the park, wish it was out in the wild though, he was a beauty...


We can't wait to go on our next adventure. Not sure where we will go, but when we asked Anna if she'd like to go camping, she informed us 'mine like fishing', so maybe before it gets tooo cold here, we'll head out and do a little camping.
