Memorial Day Weekend

Last weekend we were lucky enough to get to spend a weekend with the Andersons at their time share in Birch Bay. It was a lot of work getting ready to travel with a 4 week old, but it was worth the stress.

We ate at a great seafood restaurant and then walked down to the beach to watch the sunset and admire a bald eagle that landed in the tree next to us. How patriotic and perfect for Memorial Day, right?
Our first family picture!Sam slept fine at night, and luckily didn't keep Sam or Brent up with his late night hunger cry. He is very sensitive to new places, but he did really great on his first vacation.

The next morning we headed down to the ocean for low tide. The water goes out so far, and we loved walking out and searching for sea creatures. This was Sam's first time to the ocean, and he slept through most of it :)
Matt LOVES to hunt and catch animals, and this trip was no exception.

Monday morning we stopped at "The C Shop" on the way home and got ice cream, sandwiches and candy. This place has the best sweets.We enjoyed our first family vacation to Birch Bay, and we are hoping to head back up there again this summer for the water slides!

I LOVE TIDE-POOLING! If I could be a beach bum for the rest of forever, I totally would. Its looks amazing there, too! Although I've never caught a bruiser like that; was that one of those dungeness crabs that Matt tells me about?
