Our Day Part One

Our weather has been exceptional lately. I have had the urge to take my children to our nearby (7 minutes away) ocean to run and play. Today I decided was the day.

On our way there. This is Grays Harbor

Brady’s Oysters. We used to trade eggs for oysters here last year. They were delicious!

Arriving at the beach

Straight ahead

Looking towards Westport

Looking towards Tokeland

Beach Houses

Gorgeous day. We nearly had the beach to ourselves. This is pretty normal here.

Beautiful waves

Looking for shells, rocks and anything else they can find

One of the many beautiful sand dollars here

Here’s our boy playing in the sand

Here they have all found something fun to do

Many sand dollars just laying on the ground. They were everywhere today.

Matthew, you lost your shoe!

Friendly, little centipede

Second Half of Our Day

When we got home from the beach, we had ourselves a fabulous lunch, put the kids down for a nap and went outside to do some work and enjoyment of the sunshine.

Here’s daddy and Elisabeth planting some soybeans. We are trying them out as they are a rich source of protein for the animals.

Here are the starters that daddy has been tending to in the hothouse part of our barn

Working Hard

Elisabeth and I went for a walk in the other field that daddy mowed for me the other day. We don’t use this field right now but it sure is nice to go for a walk in a trail throughout. He’s so thoughtful! : )

There’s our barn way over to the left. I walked this just this morning before everyone got up. It was so peaceful.
