Soccer season

Everson's soccer season has officially started.  Todd is the head coach which Everson was very excited about.  He is doing well at practice.  He is definitely not the most aggressive player, but that will hopefully come with more practice and confidence.  Everson's first game is this Saturday.  I'm guessing we will see a lot of kicking and chasing!

Pacific City, Cape Kiwanda

I guess we can now consider ourselves beach goers since we have been a number of times this summer!  Our friends raved about this beach and the giant sand dune.  Surprisingly it wasn't the warmest day at the beach, so not much time was spent playing in the water, but it was still a lot of fun!  And they weren't kidding about the giant sand dune.  We drove our vans right down on the beach, set up camp, built and fire, roasted hot dogs and smores and had fun!

Climbing the giant sand dune was a little bit of a challenge.  Everyone's quads were burning.  Todd packed Bridger up most of the way, and Canon's asthma started acting up mid climb so I picked him up and packed him up until I reached Todd and then we did a switch-a-roo so I could have the least heavy child.  We can now say that our whole family reached the top and you bet we got a picture as evidence!

 What better way to get down a giant sand dune then to jump down!

The beach goers!

No A/C

One of the many good things about having a pool just a couple blocks away is we can escape to it on hot days.  Our house can get pretty hot without any A/C.

Hug Point

Another fun day at the beach.  This time the sun was out, but of course the water was still very very cold.  That didn't stop anyone from having a little fun in the water!

Sand castles were built, waves were jumped over, and seagulls were chased after.

People were buried, along with dinosaurs, sand was everywhere and everyone had fun!

More pool time

Yet another day at the pool with some good friends!  The dads had a great time launching the kids!  Us Mom's enjoyed swimming around and taking pictures.  Todd even got Everson to go completely underwater with him.  This is huge for Everson!  He is doing a great job trying new things in the pool!
