The Quade Beach Trip

This August, we were lucky to have my side of the family get together at our beach house in Lincoln City.  We had lots of fun, food, and family time.  We even got to spend time with Auntie Mil at her beach house in Road's End.  Greg, Heather, and Henry were down with Ted and Tammy.  Greg and Ted barbequed some awesome burgers and we had a great dinner with family we don't get to see much!  Jay's family even came over to Auntie Mil's.  It was so fun.  Tammy played Sorry and Too Many Monkeys with the kids, and the girls loved seeing her 4 month old St. Bernard, Bella.  (sorry, no pics!)  

Back at the Krusty Krab, we were eating s'mores off of the smokey joes (they are portable you know!) and just enjoying each other.  The girls went shopping on Saturday for a bit, and some of us went out on a party boat on Sunday.  We are definitely going to have to do it again...

Party Boaters!!
The weather was beautiful, and the weekend was a blast.  Quincee and Tillee love to share the beach house.  We did miss Karsyn, who was at a soccer tournament with her mom.   I already have plans for next year :)

The Dream Rig

Double Slug Bug

Quincee and Tillee have been playing slug bug every time they get into the car this summer.  That game is our constant companion, and yes, sometimes Mom would like to throw the "companion" out the window.  But, they saw this awesome mini VW bus at the Oregon State Fair, and proclaimed "We want one of these!!"  They then proceeded to give Bethie, Angi, Jay, Amber, and I each a double slug bug to the arm or leg.  I couldn't help but smile!  

p.s.  I want one too!!
