Getting lost on the way home

We spent a wonderful week with Julie & Frank (my sister and brother-in-law) and their children at the first Eisenhauer Reunion. We had such a wonderful time renewing our relationships with all who attended. We spent time around a campfire every night, and visited every day. On Saturday, we finished up the big weekend by celebrating Frank & Julie's 50th Wedding Anniversary.

Everyone knows we always get lost in Portland, Oregon and it wasn't long until we found ourselves on the Oregon Coast. It was a beautiful day!! The sun was warm on the sand, and the waves brought in seashells. There was no wind and we didn't even need our sweatshirts on the beach. I loved it but Rick was not so happy.

Rick loves the coast because he likes to fly stunt kites. He had conveniently put in the kites in case we were close to a beach. We went to Lincoln City, the Kite Flying capital of the U.S. He was so sad there was no wind. We stayed over night and got up to a windless morning. So, we got in the car and headed up the coast on a search for wind.

We stopped along the way at a few beaches. Still no wind. As we drove into Seaside, Oregon, we reminisced of all the fun times we had enjoyed in Seaside. We walked the street with all the little tourist shops and worked our way to the beach. As we stepped on to the beach, we could feel the wind in our hair and see kites flying in the sky. The wind was blowing and Rick was in heaven. He flew his two kites for a couple of hours. We then packed up and headed for Idaho.

All in all, it was a wonderful week. We loved being with family.

We also loved enjoying the beach just the two of us.
