So the other morning we decided to pack up and drive to the great Oregon coast for a day trip and if you guys know us we love the beach and our daughter is sure she is a fish so she absolutely loves the beach.
So after we grabbed some breakfast to go, we were on our way & for it only being an hour and a half away it’s not a bad drive. Our plan was to go to canon beach but they were under poo advisory so we ended up going to seaside ( you know the busiest tourist side of town ) not our cup of tea but we had to drive my husbands car it’s it not meant to drive on sand so the other beaches were not our option this time .
So once we got to town we stopped and got snacks and water & the most important items ………… camping chairs, that we didn’t own and kinda needed. Us being prepared for the beach is always a funny thing cause we never are and when we are we still forget something so we still are not prepared. It’s never-ending with us. That’s the excitement ……..
So then we unloaded and made our way to the nice, cold, windy beach and found a spot. The sound of the waves and people having fun was just so relaxing until our crazy 4 years old wanted to get into her swimsuit and go swim with the “sharks”.
It was until the 50th “no it’s too cold right now” and “mom please can I put my swimsuit on ” that she had her dad waking her up to the water to fill up her bucket. And it was only minutes until I saw her sitting in the water as she lived in it.
She decided it was time to walk back and sit in the sand which stuck to her whole body. In a time where parents don’t understand their kids, that’s my time right now. She was just living her best life and the wind wasn’t going to stop her, not even one bit. And hey, it’s not like we live down the road so live yo life baby girl.
( no I’m not a bad mom, she could have gotten a cold but she didn’t ) so keep your comments to yourself.
After swim time it was the best time, and that’s SNACK TIME! But not just snack time but pretty much the most entertaining and best part of our trip. Now it was not the best time for violet though.
Okay now here it is…& this is the main culprit
So at the store, we got fruit, Pringles, some fudge goldfish and water, of course, drink water and take care of yo self. So yada yadda we had the fruit and had the goldfish. Played a little bit more and then violet wanted to crack open the Pringles. The one thing we found out about crowded beaches that out of towhees come too is that they give a little snack a roo to the seagulls as well, but then that makes those seagulls cranky and hungry and ready to attack!! All I knew was a pringles flew out of violets hands, then we were surrounded and the birds were fighting each other and getting closer and closer to us. Violet and I flew up and ran away when they started dodging us !! Over a damn chip guys , who would have thought . The best part was the most hangry bird trying to drag our backpack away when we weren’t looking .
family time for us is adventure , having fun , good laughs and all around love . our daughter gave us so much in life and we want to see her happy .
here are some more photo’s of are trip & pretty much all of us being crazy as hell . but thats just a regular day for this beach bum fam .
