Clara's First Day at the Beach

After the weekend in Hood River, we zoomed over to the beach to spend a couple days with my parents and sister!

Clara got to experience the ocean for the first time.

It happened to be a chilly day, but it is safe to say she loved it!  But how couldn't she?

An endless sandbox and waves to chase are the makings of childhood heaven!

We did a lot of this

here it comes!

On a side note, looking at these pictures make me realize that I've let my weight creep up a bit.  Since we've been back, I've implemented a post vacation weight loss goal of ten pounds.  I don't think it will be too difficult; I plan to eat less, drink less, and exercise occasionally.  I've been pretty neglectful in all of those areas!  Since Thursday, I've lost 2 pounds and it hasn't even been a week yet!  It is probably bloat and water weight, but I'm counting it anyway :)  I'll let you all know when I reach my goal!


  1. A day at the beach is always a great day...no matter the weather! Fun pics!

  2. The first of many fun days with you!
