Mini Vaca

Last weekend we went to Oceanside with the Sargent family and Puckett family.  We rented an amazing house from friends of the Sargents.  The weather was not the greatest (super rainy and stormy) but we didn't let the weather stop us from enjoying our weekend!  We had a lot of fun spending time with some close friends.

Here are several pictures of the amazing house that I didn't take, but that were included on the flier we received before going on our vacation.

The front of the house (minus the huge rain puddles we experienced while at the beach house).
Huge kitchen- where we made lots of yummy food!

Wonderful table where we ate meals and played games together.
A large family room where the boys (actually everyone but me and the kids) played lots of Wii.

 Here are a few pictures that we took throughout the mini vacy weekend!

Josh and Sarah made us a yummy breakfast on Saturday morning called:  french toast surprise.  It consisted of french toast bread (with swirls of maple in the bread), a layer of cream cheese,  then another piece of delicious bread all battered and cooked, and then topped with syrup and powered sugar.  It was delicious!
 The boys playing a competitive game on the Wii.  Notice Isaiah even found himself in the action.
 I loved his smile!
 We brought puzzles for Isaiah to play with , but he happily shared with Michaela.
 Michaela was working hard to figure out the puzzles.
 The kids had lots of fun playing together.
 Saturday afternoon we ventured out to the Tillamook Cheese Factory.

 Since Isaiah is really into cows we had to get our picture taken by them!
 And you can't visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory without eating ice cream!
 Isaiah loved it, Mommy thought it was a little messy.
 After Travis finished his ice cream he was in charge of entertaining Isaiah so he wouldn't keep eating my ice cream.  Recently Isaiah has discovered a love for counting to five.  He likes to watch (and he tries to copy) our fingers as we count to five.
 Even baby Lily's parents caved and gave her a taste of some yummy ice cream!
 And Lily sure did LOVE it!
 How can you say no ice cream to this adorable face?
 Michaela was happy to eat Daddy's ice cream...
 and Mommy's ice cream!
 Saturday afternoon Brooke, Travis, Isaiah, and I bundled up and went for a quick walk along the beach.  It was not the best beach walking weather.
 Brooke, Isaiah, and I exploring a tunnel.
 Both Friday night and Saturday night after the kids went to bed we enjoyed playing Pegs and Jokers!
 Another toy we brought were these magnet gears from Nonna and Pops house... however, the house had all stainless steal appliances so the magnets wouldn't work.  Isaiah still found a place to play with the magnets... yes, my son is playing gear magnets on a trash can!

We had a great weekend and enjoy the mini vaca!
