Thursday was moving day again. We were headed to the Thousand Trails in Seaside. I have heard good things about this park.
When we arrived we were told to pick our site. We of course opted for the 50amp side, and lucked out when we found a site directly across from the pool, hot tub, playground and family activity center. Perfect! We are parked next to a neat family, who full time with their four children ages 8,6,4 and baby. They home school and also started a business Fulltimerfamilies.com. Anyone who knows of a family that are fulltiming or want to, have them hook up with Chris & Kimberly. Joey was happy to have friends. After checking the place out, we went for a drive through town and stopped for dinner at DQ.
Friday, Oh what a beautiful day in the 70’s. We headed back to Portland for the arrival of grandson #2, Logan, who is 7.. He wasn’t sure he wanted to fly alone, but he braved up and decided he didn’t want to miss out. It was about 7p when we got back and it didn’t take him long to mix in with the neighbors, at the swimming pool.
Saturday perfect day for the beach. Temps actually went into the 80’s. Not really heard of around here early June. I took the boys searching for a parking spot at the beach. Not easy to find. I think everyone was out today! After several tries at a few beaches, I found a spot that turned out to be rather cool. It was by the river that led to the beach. The boys had both to play in and around.
I liked seeing the horses…
Down by the ocean, they dug and scoped out fish…..
And chased seagulls….
Nice brother time…
After several hours at the beach it was homeward bound.A quick dip in the pool and then it was time for candy bar bingo at the clubhouse. We all won! Campfire followed with s’mores and the kids all had a ball playing in the playground.
Sunday.. I had to grocery shop.. I set up the wii outside on the picnic table for the kids to play along with their friends.
When they had enough our neighbor Kimberly brought them all to the pool.
Monday…Kevin & I had planned to take the boys out for the day but Kevin woke up feeling very dizzy and sick. So I took them to the Seaside Aquarium. .
Fish for them to feed the Seals..
They loved looking at all the fish..
The aquarium is right on the beach but it was too cold to play…
So we headed to the candy store to pick out salt water taffy…Another first for them..
Back at the campground it was playtime with the neighbors..
Next blog will take us on a return drive south to show the boys some sites..
