I didn't mean to be cryptic in my last post when I said we were going yurting. This is a yurt. Like a tent, but more stable. Yurting is like camping, but without roughing it. We drove about an hour north to this place. It was pretty, a little overcast, but not wet. There is this cute little trail down to the beach with a lot of ferns and ivy (and few nettles sprinkled in for good measure).
Once we got to the beach, there was some of this,
and this, and lots of this:We totally enjoyed our time. The only bummer is that we were all recovering from being sick (still are, actually), and furthermore, my poor hubby was sleep deprived from having to pull an all-nighter at work the night before, which he has to do from time to time. We intended for this to be a spiritual retreat. We brought the kids a new story Bible to read, and some devotional books for us, but after the kids fell asleep, both of us were too pooped to keep our eyes open. Sigh. Maybe next time.
We arrived home to find out that our new nephew was making his arrival in Portland. His name is Samuel. Unfortunately, even though we wanted BADLY to take a whirlwind trip over there, we decided to wait due to sore throats and coughing. Not sure when we're going to be able to meet him. Easter weekend we have guests coming over, and then the weekend after that Dave is on a business trip. Even when you don't want to make any plans for the weekend, something always seems to turn up. I hope we can see the little guy soon.
