The mighty chipmunk hunters in action. Sticking their heads in the very hole those pesky chipmunks were sticking their heads out of a second ago.

A quick shot of the Peter Iredale as we sped toward the “exit”. Pretty cool.

I love this photo. All worn out from clamming, Karen wipes the sand from her eye. You can’t really see it, but it’s there.

We limited yesterday… thanks to the fine professional stylings of our very knowledgeable and fast digging comrades. You guys rock. Or maybe I should say… you guys clam.

Clam Digging

So… yesterday, after having a great Saturday I haven’t yet mentioned… loved having you over Maggie. Really nice to see you. It had been awhile. Yesterday… we got up at the butt ass crack of dawn (pardon me) and went clam digging with Stan and Connie. It was a really great day. We really enjoyed ourselves. Thanks guys for driving, for instructing, and for putting up with our sorry excuse for clam digging selves.

Weston watching Benny demolish a stick. The big guy played really well with our little dude and dudette. They were friends all around.

Washed Up

Just a bit of a branch that had washed up at some point. And yes… if you’ve read the previous post and wondered, Weston did leave his mark on this one as well. There should be a sign… Weston was here.

Not sure what the purpose of these sticks was/were. Interesting though. One never knows what one might see when one walks on the beach. (LOL  That sentence just cracked me up.  When did I get so proper?)

Uh, from the last entry… that would be last Friday afternoon, the 10th. Our anniversary is actually the 9th, but we really couldn’t take it off work as well. Have to save up that time off for trips to England and Chicago and visits with the kids. It’s OK though… we did go out to dinner last Thursday night to celebrate. Had some terrific Vietnamese food at Silk. Nice.

Can’t you just feel those negative ions flowing at you from this photo? They are strong… mighty… and completely relaxing.

Weston had a great time chasing down this enormous stick. I was actually surprised he could run with it as well as he did. He’s so cute…

We had such a good time over at the coast this weekend. Walking on the beach, watching loads of movies (five actually… they were: The Savages, The Guardian, Juno, We Own The Night, and one of my all time favorites, Peter’s Friends), eating good take out Chinese food for dinner and then lunch the next day, chai teas, and walking on the beach… again, and again. It was a very relaxing weekend. Just what we needed.

Weston loved his time away. He’s a happy little camper when he can have both of us with him all the time. He slept, played, ran in the sand, dug in the sand, chased his ball on the sand, and looked out the window of the hotel room at all the birds sailing by.

Finally… we each called our mom’s to wish them happy mother’s day, but I’ll say again here… happy mother’s day mom’s!

Photo Hunt – Any Photo

Burying The Ball, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl.

OK, so this week’s theme for the hunt is anything. We’re currently staying on the Oregon coast for a few days. A little mini holiday of sorts. I took this picture this morning when we took the boy down to the beach to run off leash. It was pretty early and no one else, except for a father and son, were down there. The little mister had a spectacular time, as you can tell.

If you’d like to join in the photo hunt fun, click here, and start taking pictures immediately.
