Every year, my hubby’s birthday falls during Spring break – a time when so many people are traveling and it becomes difficult to plan much of anything, so this year, we took a trip to the Oregon Coast!
Little Monkey and Papa Monkey have a special connection between their birthdays. The birthday of one marks the 1/2 birthday of the other.
This coastal adventure turned out to mark many firsts for all of us! Get ready for a mad photo montage!
First time for Hubby to turn thirty….something!
First time for Little Monkey to see the Ocean!
You can see that the winter storms have washed quite a bit of debris onto the shore…
Though the sun was out, it wasn’t exactly a warm day, so we had to be sure to keep the little monkey all snuggled up!
First timefor me to visit Heceta Head and Heceta Lighthouse
We learned about the history of the lighthouse and about the glass prisms that allow the light to be reflected outward in great distances.
First time as a family to stay at the lakehouse!
First time to take in gorgeous sunsets from the dock as a family.
First time my lovely husband has ever woken up early just to photograph the sunrise…
First time for Little Monkey to sit in a high chair…
Our very FIRST family vacation together (outside of visiting relatives) and it was perfect!
