We just got back from our 4 day getaway to the Oregon coast, hubby surprised us by booking the beach house just two days before we had to leave! I am not a spontaneous person, I like to plan things and make lists, so this was a little crazy. But it was just us going, so meal prep was easy and I made a point to pack light, because there was a washer and dryer at the house.
It being April, and the NW coast, I wasn't expecting good weather or anything, I just thought it would be nice to cozy up by the fire, read a book and go on walks. However, the weather was amazing! It was chilly the day we drove in, but the next three days were fantastic. It even reached the 80's on Sunday.
Staying at this beach house house felt like a dream. It was just steps from the beach. Roomy, and beautiful inside. We got to eat with a ocean view three times a day and people watched from the balcony. I loved that it was so close to the beach, I could put William down for a nap, and sit and watch hubby and the big kids outside.
-isn't it dreamy?-
-how did she get so big!?-
-William loved the sand, he kept piling sand into mountains and then decorate them with sticks and rocks-
-Saturday morning. I hoped to sleep in, but the kids were up bright and early ready for a day at the beach, which I didn't mind. Hubby and I drank our coffee and tea right there on the beach-
