Coos Bay!

So a couple of weeks ago, my BFF Susan and I loaded up our kids and headed out on vacation to her home town of Coos Bay. We left at 4 am thinking the kids would sleep for quite awhile. They slept for a little bit, but not for very long! The drive took us 13 hours (about 3 of that was stops). We were VERY glad to finally get there!

We had such a great time! We went to the beach - where Noah played in the ocean for the first time!

We fished at Empire Lakes - where Noah caught his first fish!

We spent an entire day at the most beautiful lake - Loon Lake - where Noah was able to swim, play on the beach and even drive the boat!

The weather was awesome almost the entire time. The last day we were there it was typical costal weather - windy, foggy & chilly! We still had a great time going to a really fun park. Noah got to play on the toys & feed the ducks.

We decided to leave 6 hours ahead of schedule and hope the kids slept more. It was a good plan! Noah & Kathyn slept most of the way! Cody stayed awake for awhile & kept lookout for deer with us. Good thing! One almost hit us and 2 more crossed in front of us!!

It was such an awesome trip! I am so glad we went! Although, Susan & I are thinking next vacation is JUST us!! Our Hubby's can keep the kids!!!

Photo Tag!

So my friend Kim has tagged me in the past, and sadly, I only had one person to tag from there. Luckily, she didn't tag the only other peeps I know! ;)

So here goes. This is a photo tag. You have to take photos of these 10 photos as they are right now. (not cleaned, scrubbed or primped in any way!)
1. The Fridge. Ewww...when was the last time I cleaned this thing out??!

2. The Closet. Obviously Mike came in and messed this up before I could get a picture... ;)

3. The Kitchen Sink. The items that would not fit in the already full and running dishwasher...

4. The Laundry Room. As I am leaving for vacation in a day this room is getting LOTS of use tonight!

5. Self-portrait. Dang...I am starting to look old!

6. My Favorite Room. My deck is my favorite room! I LOVE our deck! We eat dinner outside, turn the tv so we can see it from the deck & just relax.

7. Dream Vacation. At this point Coos Bay is my dream vacation! It has been forever since I have taken a vacay! I'll have to post a picture when I get back on Wednesday! :)

8. The Toilet. Not bad for a Tuesday with a 4 year old. (It gets scrubbed on the weekends)

9. What My Kids Are Doing Right Now. cute are they??! :)

10. My Favorite Shoes. I LOVE these shoes! They are sassy (and a little sexy) and actually even comfortable. I have even full on run in these shoes! (I was late for a meeting).

I am supposed to tag 5 people, but since I don't know that many with blogs (sad) I tag my BFF Susan, Erin & Jeremy.

There you go! Your turn! :)

Big boy teeth already??

So, last Monday was Noah's dentist appointment. During his check-up we discovered that one of his permanent teeth is coming in already! WHAT? He's only 4?? I know he got his first tooth really early, but I was shocked that his permanent tooth was already popped up! I'm not ready for him to have big boy teeth - he's too hard on them! :)
