One of my favorite places

Everyone should have a favorite place to be...I am lucky and have a few. Manzanita Oregon is top on my list. It is amazing here. Erik has been coming here with his family ever since he was tiny. Now we get to share the paradise with our kiddos. I love passing on traditions! This town is a cute get away, and only now is starting to be discovered by other people. The streets of the town has cute little shops. One of which is a bookstore. (Fear not, I got the fourth book of the Twlight series this morning.) This year we are staying a block and a half away from the beach. We got here and decided our house was wonderful. Perfect for our needs.

We took pictures quick before the kids had any effect on the looks of the place. After getting sort-of settled, we ran to the beach. You would be proud of me. I almost went and just enjoyed the evening. Skipping the camera, but it was so amazing that I had to run back to the house and snap some shots. These are the first of many to be taken.
Here are the kiddos in the sand dunes. They already found some good ones to jump. Emily is starting to jump the waves.
This is what Erik looks like standing on the beach.
I love the colors of the beach. The beach grasses, the sand and the water.

Emily and Ryan ended up getting soaked by the waves. Because it was evening, I didn't have them wear swim suits. I now know when the ocean is near always be ready to be soaked.
