We traveled about an hour to go to the outlet malls in Lincoln City, OR. We got our back to school clothes shopping pretty much done. We split kids up between Ben and I to get done as efficiently and quickly as possible. This was my crew, along with Chloe (who took the picture).
Ben found a leather store and reminisced about the days he used to wear leather jackets in college.
Leah had fun wherever she was.
Livy was a trooper in the backpack once again until the very end. When we met up at our last store she was cranky and wanted out, but did great for most of the trip.
Papa did a French braid in Stella's hair. Ben also loves to braid and I love when men and dad's do their daughter's hair.
It's hard not to have a favorite child when you have a baby like Jocelyn. She is our sweetheart.
When Livy isn't jealous of her, she loves to hold her.
Chelsea had a birthday at the beach again. It was fun to celebrate with a big cake and lots of tillamook ice cream!
Mitch had such a fun time in the water. I hardly ever saw him down at the beach because he was constantly riding the waves.
There were some fake birds on some trees just down from our beach house. Olivia loves birds and Bethany was sweet enough to take her there a few times during the week.
Going with cousin Grant was even better.
The day we left was completely clear skies, sunny and beyond gorgeous. We hadn't had weather this great the whole week and didn't get to enjoy it much as we had to pack and clean all morning.
We survived another vacation with 2 babies! Hopefully next year Livy will be out of her hard phase and Jocie will still be sweet, wonderful Jocie.
We love you beach! August 2016 can't come fast enough.
