Our week at the beach in pictures

Well. We just got back from a lovely 5 days at Cannon Beach with Jim's family - an early Thanksgiving get-together, if you will. What fun! There was lots of heavy rain and 65 mph winds, but we had a few sun breaks and an awesome rental to pass the time in. Suffice it to say, Henry and Grandpa played a lot, and I mean a lot, of games (mostly made up) - sometimes the rest of us were called from our positions on the couch to be a part. I believe his favorite was named Superhero Baseball Head. Mmmhmm. Anyhow. We had a great time with Jim's parents and sister and the boys were spoiled with a capital S. :) Wyatt was barely put down all week! I suppose that is what grandparents and aunties are for!

Aw, shoot. I love him.

Photo shoot attempt #1

One of the top 5 things to do on vacation: eat pie for breakfast!

Did I mention Jim's mom made homemade egg rolls....mmmmmm...
(don't even ask how many Jim consumed)

Captivated by Aunt Kathy

Photo shoot attempt #2
Here's one that's actually pretty good!

And then...
Why does everyone think I'm the weirdo in the family??
Note to self: if desiring to take a photo including smile child (aka baby), do not do it in a room with a fan.

Love all the pictures. Looks like a fabulous time with the in-laws at the coast! Jim is such a silly goofball in the last couple! Also, I can not get over how much Wyatt looks like you Steph! So cute!

Looks like SO much fun! I love the relaxing feeling of being in a vacation house with other adult relatives to help entertain kiddos. I'm sure Gma, Gpa and Auntie Kathy had a blast too!

Steph, you express an exceptional talent as you share your pics and narrative with the rest of us. Pie for breakfast is in your genes. Most, if not all, of your mom and her sisters have that habit Of course the Quieen of such dietary doodling is grandma field. She claims it is just like haveing fruit for breakfast. Keep up the good work. We are a little concerned abouit Jim.
Love grandpa Field

Looks like a blast, and a beautiful place to stay. I love the picture of Henry and Grandpa, looking at each other in a very cute/mischievious way. And the more I get to know Jim, the more I get to see the "weirdo" part.(:
