Over the weekend, we rented a house with The Hartmann's at Olivia Beach.
It was a long-awaited and much needed break.
 (we hadn't even been away for as much as a day since last September, 
when we spent 4 days at Olivia Beach.)  

The weather was great the first day and a half.
We played bocci ball and went to the tidepools.
The guys went to a movie while the girls (plus B) went shopping at the outlet mall.
We also had an awesome campfire where we roasted smores and starbursts.

The 2nd day and a half were pretty rainy.
Craig was excited to go surfing and we really wanted Bennett to play with his shiny new sand toys at least once...so we embraced our inner Oregonian and went to the beach when it was raining.
(though we might have been regretting spending part of the previous sunny day inside!) 

B playing on the front porch:

Bennett loves Craig and Lauren!

hangin out:

I love it when Bennett puts his hat on by himself...
He wears it around like this too!

our house was the one on the right:

a little bocci ball:

my boys at the tidepools:

I also love it when B puts his hand in his pocket:

so excited to play:

This probably won't be our last time to OB this year.
We love it there!

On another note, Chris passed his very important, gigantic and scary engineering test.
He's legit now!

Also, we are two sets of paperwork away from calling this our living room!
(we close July 18th)

    That living room looks perfect for you guys!

    And, what are you holding in that family photo? Is it a shovel?
