Lincoln City Aug.5-8
Its been a busy summer with work and my family all came to visit!We rented a beach house in Lincoln city and it was pretty nice. Sometimes the pictures they put online do not match the real thing. We had a few issues with the fact they said it would sleep 14 but it really only slept 11. Besides that we had a good time playing games, doing a craft, eating way too much good food! We went to the Aquarium that I got tickets for at half price! We saw a few lighthouses and then of course ate at Mo's my dad's all time favorite place for Clam chowder. The grand kids just wanted to play in the water everywhere we went. Any of you who are familiar with the Oregon coast its not a warm place to be! They didn't care till they were frozen then it wasn't as fun. I planned a party for my parents. They both turned 60 this year so I wanted to do something special.I made up a poster of the number 60 in pictures of their life I thought it turned out cute and some of the pictures they had never seen! I got a few from their siblings so that was fun for them. Then I had made up a trivia game of things about them with multiple choice answers.I had everyone try and guess the favorites. I was surprised by a few of the answers that I thought for sure I would get right. We also were there for my birthday and my mom surprised me with a quilt that she whipped up a week before they got there. It was a lot of work and I can't wait for it to be cold so I can use it! We had a great time and I look forward to the next adventure.There are lots of pictures thanks to my sister in law Stacie for sharing. Some of them didn't stay in order so I hope they all make sense.
