We've just returned from a family reunion. It was nice to see, catch up, and laugh with everyone. My boys enjoyed seeing their cousins and visiting the Pacific ocean. Too cold to actually swim, but walking along the shore looking for pebbles and sand dollars was enough. Here are a few photos from our trip...

Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home."

The first day was spent at Mason Lake in Shelton, WA. There was swimming, a BBQ and a paddle boat that our dog enjoyed!
The next day was spent at Westport, WA. There is a whaler's museum and a shipyard full of boats. While we were there, the tall ships that are actually manned by a trained crew were docked and we were able to take a tour.
The rest of the day was spent on the Pacific Ocean strolling a picking up pebbles and sand dollars.
After service on Sunday
the family gathered for lunch and the nice weather allowed for outdoor dining.
Our trip home was fun too. We saw a stern-wheel riverboat going down the Columbia River,
we stopped at the Multnomah Falls and hiked up a ways to view it at different levels. This is one of my husband's favorite places and it was the perfect day to visit. It was a fast trip , packed with activity. . . and lots of memories. And now it's back to reality and LOADS of laundry!
