Day 2 of our BEST ever summer 2016 fam vacay was packed full of adventure!
Auntie Ruth, cousins, Grandpa and Grandma and even Uncle Dean
meet us at Fort Clatsop to start the day!
*most of my pictures from this day are blurry due to
the fact that the kids hardly stopped moving*
Colter, Rolli and Viv trying out the explorer bunk beds.
After sitting through a short story of Lewis and Clark we watched a flint gun demo.
And then the kids even got to (kinda) hold the gun to feel how heavy it was.
Vivian and Madison participated in a demonstration on how elk skin clothes where made.
These boys checked out all of the exhibits at a furious speed.
They are so full of energy and excitement!
Our next stop was a quick picnic lunch at Fort Stevens before the kids where off and running again!
With a load full of wild kids!
Vivian posed for a picture to share with her gymnastics school :)
All the cousins really liked exploring at Fort Stevens!
It was lots of fun to watch them running around, playing and yelling...
just like we had done at their ages :)
Our last stop for the day was the Peter Irerdale Shipwreck beach.
She is always running wild!
And I love her for it (even though she causes me a lot of worry already).
Vivian and Madison love playing with each other.
I think what they really like is the break from their brothers ;)
Oh' the joys of sand!
The kids dug huge "shelter" holes, rolled down the hill,
threw sand in the air, put sand in their pockets, ect....
Sand was EVERYWHERE!
Vivian just couldn't stop herself from thoroughly enjoying the feel of SAND!
Everyone know the Oregon Coast is perfect for kite flying :)
Colter and Daddy.
Mr. Man and his idle :)
Then it was off to our campsite to cook hobo meals over the fire!
