LARRY J'S EAGLE COURT

went off without a hitch.  A huge thank you to family and friends who helped. 
One down and three more to go.  By the time Lach is an Eagle Scout, it will be a breeze - ha!
Larry J's been an Eagle since October, so it was nice to finally celebrate him and make it officially official.  Although it was Super Bowl Sunday, we had a great turn out. 
It was a fun night celebrating our boy.  How can you go wrong with hug and high-fives, chit-chat, refreshments and a little helium?

THOR'S WELL

We found Thor's Well with only 20 minutes of sunlight left and the tide was just starting to come in. I was so excited we found it but disappointed we didn't have the light and water level for a super cool photo.  We will definitely be back when the tide is right to get some fun photographs.
It is a salt water fountain driven by the the power of the ocean tide and is gorgeous.
The following two photos are my favorites.  When I saw these pictures, I knew I had to see this place for myself.

Is Thor's Well cool or what?!

HER BIRTHDAY IS FOUR DAYS AWAY

but we celebrated Mama Nanny's birth with some of the family tonight.  My dad bought her a HUGE cake, we had a candle for every year and we sang our hearts out.
It was a team effort getting the candles lit.

Happy, happy birthday Mama Nanny - we love you!

DRIFT CREEK FALLS TRAIL

I am in love with his hike. Drift Creek Falls Trail is a beautiful and easy hike, 3 miles round trip.
The highlight of the hike is a suspension bridge - a 240 foot long cable suspension bridge, which is 100 feet above the water where you have a gorgeous view of a 75 foot waterfall.
See this huge chunk of rock next to us?  In 2010, this huge chunk of the cliff cleaved off and fell down to the canyon.  Down here, there is a little picnic table and a lot of rocks to climb on.  Across from us, closer to the water fall, there were even a few menehune rock stacks.

Next time you're on your way to Lincoln City, go on this little excursion.  You'll be glad you did!

PS - There is a $5.00 National Park fee.

THANKSGIVING

We spent Thanksgiving at the beach with Larry's parents. After we ate, we went down to the beach to have a little sunset bonfire.  The only thing that would have made the evening better would have been smores, but we were stuffed from our yummy Thanksgiving smorgasbord!
Before we went home, my man clan went for a little dip at the indoor community pool.  It was our first time there and we will definitely be back!
I'm so thankful for our family and extended family.  They make my heart purr.

LARRY J WOKE UP TO A FUN SURPRISE!

His leaders and some of the guys in his church class came over to wake him up for an INSANITY birthday workout.
(I know this picture is blurry, we have ridiculously horrible lighting in our living room, practically non existent)

After a hard, sweaty, kick butt 40 minute workout, they took him out for a birthday breakfast.

My boys have been blessed with amazing church youth leaders and mentors over the years.  I am so incredibly thankful that they take time to show that they truly care about them.  A little extra effort to make someone feel special goes along way.  This was a birthday wonderful morning.
