Playing hooky!

Last Monday Stephen and I played hooky at work and spent the day in Pacific City with my parents! They were on the back end of their Oregon Coast vacation and we thought it would be fun to spend some time with them before they left for Idaho, so we headed West to stay a night at their condo. 

Oh, wait. Did I forget to mention they have beach condo? ....!!!  :)

Lucky 'lil parents of mine are very happy owners of a beach condo in Pacific City! And it's gorgeous! The place is set up just like my momma would design, very tasteful, and it's right on the ocean with an amazing view... It's perfect for them! They've been looking and talking about this for years, I'm so happy they've finally done it! Couldn't think of more deserving people :)

We got to do lots of fun thing while we were there. My favorite, of course, was simply walking the beaches, looking for sand dollars, climbing the rocks, playing in tide pools...our usual Oregon Coast activities. 

Most people dream of warm beaches with hot, white sand, no wind, blue sky, laying out with a drink in hand... And trust me, that certainly sounds nice! But the Oregon Coast is by far my most favorite place I've ever been. Two coats, pants, a scarf, and ratty hair from the wind... I don't mind! It holds so much meaning to Stephen and I, and my family. I could walk the beach for hours and sit motionless and speechless watching the waves. Doesn't get any better than that :)

This day, though, we were blessed with very nice weather, and the very best of company.

SO cute!

Stephen and I are truly blessed to have such amazing parents. We are so thankful for everything they've done for us. What a fun way to say goodbye to them, a day at our favorite place :) 

We love you mom and dad! <3
