Each summer we enjoy our “Week at the Beach.”
We are blessed to own a second home on the Oregon Coast. The house is rented out the majority of the time but each summer we enjoy a “week at the beach.” This has become a very special, treasured and highly anticipated family time. Sometimes it is just our family but more often then not we love sharing that week with our extended family and friends.
The beach is a magical place where we can just be together and enjoy each other without many of the distractions of everyday life. It is a blessing to be able to remove ourselves from the busyness of life and just be together.
There was lots of good food and lots of fun! Thought I’d share with you today a few of my favorite pictures from our “Week at the Beach.”
The best part was these four cute faces were there together, at the same time!
We had lots of fun celebrating the Fourth with Grandma and Grandpa and our neighbors who joined us at the beach.
We loved the small town parade in Manzanita.
And getting all decked out in red, white and blue.
And on the Fourth there were sparklers and lots of fireworks!
There were lots of amazing sunsets…
..and walks on the beach.
Of course we did a few Totally Tessa photo shoots.
We always love hanging out at the beach and getting a little reading done.
There was lots of game and card playing too.
We had fun doing a little shopping in downtown Manzanita and especially loved the vintage candy shop.
