A #tbt + Travel Thursday (2-in-1 Combo)

When I blog, I love that it keeps track of our life. It keeps track of all our recipes we enjoy and meal planning, which makes it way too stupid easy for me to plan week to week if we just want to repeat everything. It keeps track of our life events, our house projects, our family time, and our travels. It's a great place for us to look back at our years of marriage together via words and photos. I am blessed to have the job I do, the many days off each week, and a husband who fully supports the time I devote to this silly thing. Whether it gets read or not, we hold it close to us as our history. So if you're a reader,
thanks for that. If you're not, then I suppose you're not reading this anyway.

With all that, I figured I should do a nice little combo for today...
a #tbt, a travel idea, & the trip memories...
All. In. One.
Boom!

The Details
Need a quick weekend getaway? Well you all know we love Astoria, but we also love this little place.
It's far less busy than Seaside, Cannon Beach, or Lincoln City. It's great for kids. It's relaxing and
quiet for adults. The beaches are not packed like most on the coast. You can get some decent 
deals on large sized condos right on the ocean for a big group (family or friends). 
And you can't go wrong with all the silly, typical beach stores. Be sure you
take your kids on the train ride...always a hit for the kiddos that are super 
into cars and trains right now. Come to relax and enjoy!

WELCOME to Rockaway!

where you get some awesome views...

you can play with naked kiddos and a skim board in the freezing cold water...

where you challenge your sister to walking handstands...


where all kids get their hands, face, and booty cracks sandy...

where the whole family treats themselves to the real ice cream...

and where your heart just melts when you get to watch these kiddos enjoy their time here...





but don't head out of town without stopping in this little place...

you just might be able to find yourself a urinal and bedpan as I did!


Take off for the weekend. If you're not interested in Rockaway, then get out and enjoy
yourself elsewhere. Find a new beach to explore. We dare you.
