Our trip to the coast!

We had such a fun time at the coast with the kids last week. My grandmother owns a beach house in one of the small beach towns that’s kind of right in the middle of all the places we like to visit when we go to the coast and she is very sweet about letting us use it when we want too. It certainly eliminates the cost of having to pay a hotel to stay there.

We do a pretty good job of just enjoying what the beach life has to offer and not going crazy with our spending when were down there. Josh and I don’t really buy much when we’re down there. We like to save our money for the few special meals we have out.

We did most of our cooking at the beach house and only ate out a few times. We practically packed our entire kitchen and brought it to my grandmothers house so we would have options. But I wanted to share a few pictures of the trip with you :) Most of the pictures shown were shot with our iPhones :)

The beautiful Sunset at Rockaway Beach
Our favorite coffee shop, “Bella Espresso” resides in Cannon Beach
The Best Halibut Fish and Chips any restaurant has to offer with its garlic and rosemary fries…only at the Wayfarer!
How’s that for a kids Grilled Cheese lunch? Also at the Wayfarer!
Our tradition is after eating lunch at the Wayferer, we always take a walk to Haystack Rock to look at the tide pools and work off our lunch ;)
Our visit to the Tillamook Cheese Factory
The Ship Wreck at Fort Stevens
The Sand Castle Josh built one afternoon
French Toast with fresh Raspberries from the Cannon Beach Farmers Market
The best Pizza on the NW Coast…Pizza a Fetta!
It was a great trip and I wish we could go back right now, haha, but we made some beautiful memories and ate some good food. Now, I’m currently in Birthday Planning mode for Eden’s 3rd birthday this Saturday. She wants Cupcakes so I’m on the search for some good cupcake recipes. Any ideas people :)
