One of the big perks of living here in Oregon are the day trips to the coast we've been able to take with the girls. The past two Thursdays Nate has had off so we've packed up and driven out to the coast (which is only 1 1/2 hours away). One Thursday we had beautiful weather. It was sunny and in the low 60's. We had a picnic lunch and then the girls played.
Layla loved the water and kept running to waves. The waves were a little strong for her so I held onto her each time a wave came in. We both had to change our pants when it was time to leave since we were so wet.
Sanaa preferred to build sand castles. The waves actually frightened her. But she did let me hold her and walk closer to the waves.
This past Thursday wasn't as nice at the coast. It was cloudy and cool (in the mid 50's) but we still had a good time. We kept Layla out of the water this time since it was cooler and instead chased birds and searched for seashells.
