Once again we stayed at the Nehalem Bay State Park campsite, right next to the wonderful Manzanita beach. This makes for a fabulous location - beach walks, skim boarding, playing on the gorgeous sand. As well as all that the State Park has to offer - a kids program with activities and fun run by the Park Rangers, playground, horse riding, bike riding, hiking. Never a dull moment!
This trip we went with friends = 4 kids, two mums and our lovely Dutch friend and babysitter visiting us. There was a lot a fun, warm weather, lots of s'mores, hotdogs, sitting around campfires, running around the campsite and playground, a few arguments between the kids (but nothing that 15 minutes 'alone time' didn't sort out!), lots of scraps and bruises from climbing trees and making dens! All those good things about being outdoors that made the kiddos not want to come home this afternoon.
Here are a few scenes from the past four days.
