More Newport...

We are back home and had such a fun time at the beach. Great weather, great food, lots of relaxation and now back to reality.

Get away

The boys are playing with my parents this weekend while Brian and I are away at the beach. We are staying at Tyee Lodge in Newport - a cute little bed and breakfast we have visited once before. This is the view from our room. Brian is asleep at the moment - soon we will head down to the beach and explore. In the meantime I am watching the clouds roll in and enjoying the sound of the waves. Doesn't get much better than that.

Ben found an old Walkman today and loved listening to music with his "earpumps"... I tried to tell him they are earphones, but he wasn't buying it.

Beachin' it

The kids and I drove over to the beach yesterday to see friends and play. It was great weather!

Sam is on spring break this week and the boys decided this morning they wanted to go for a hike. Ben insisted we see waterfalls... so they helped pack up lunches and snacks and we headed out to the Gorge.
We stopped at Bridal Veil and hiked down to the falls... they did awesome! Neither one complained or asked for help!
We only saw a few other people and the sun even came out.
The both loved the falls and Ben made sure to jump in every puddle we passed.

We are going on week 3 of remodeling our master bathroom. It is slowly coming together! It was nice to see the 80s light fixtures, gold accents, and beige toilet go. The tiling is almost done and we are hoping the cabinets we ordered arrive this week. Here are a few pix of the process...
New tub and shower pan in... sheet rock going up.
Old mirrors, lights and cabinets gone.
Tile starting to go down.
Getting closer!

Science Fair

Tonight was the Oak Hills Science Fair and Sam was very excited to show off his project. I was a little nervous when the evaluator started grilling him with all kinds of questions... but he spoke right up and did great. Good job buddy!
