Thanksgiving 2013

We ran away with some of our bestest friends this year for Thanksgiving. We celebrated early with family and then got ourselves 900 whole square feet of beach house in Rockaway and crammed 11 of us into it for 3 days. It was fabulous! And a little secret about the Oregon coast is that the weather is FAR better in the fall that the summer! Gorgeous sunny skies and no wind…which means FUN beach photos of course 🙂

The gang.

Ruby and Mitch are my two hunters. They will spend hours beach combing and showing me their finds. I know I only have a few more years of this with them, so I want to catch these memories and freeze them forever through the lens of my camera.

My three girls. Teen, child and baby. Sigh….they grow up so darn fast.

How on earth did she get taller than me? Yes, I hear you saying that I’m only 5’2″…but still!

Life long friends for sure. They really have no choice…their moms are life long friends too.

Super thankful for this girl. We’ve ridden the bus together as kids, grown up as “farmer’s daughters”, and now get to do adult life together, being just a 15 minute drive from each other.

And this guy? I love him. He (who was only going to have 2 children when we married 18 yrs ago) is the best dad ever.
