I’m playing catch up on personal photos and blog posts now that I’m on official “maternity leave/baby watch”.  In November (2016), about a month after I learned I was pregnant and Brian had just come home from a 3 week offshore hitch, we headed to our favorite beach spot for the day. It was one of those great spontaneous beautiful beach days. I’m SO grateful for the proximity we are to the gorgeous Oregon coast (1.5 hours).  We stopped at the cutest little bakery/coffee shop near Cannon Beach called Sea Level. I enjoyed a nice London Fog, Brian had a latte, and Brady a hot chocolate. We also all shared a big cookie with our picnic that we packed. Even though I was feeling a little yucky at times, it was a chilly beautiful beach day.  Once the sun started setting, I nestled up against a nice big piece of drift wood and covered myself in Brian’s jacket while I watched them play (and of course, took pictures.)

Waaaay back in July when my Dad and family were visiting from Texas, we took a day trip out to Cannon Beach. On the WINDIEST day. It was quite chilly and windy, but the sun was out so, it was pretty.  Sitting here on this chilly, rainy, November day makes me crave a good sunny beach day. It was fun, but I feel bad that was their exposure to the beach. We also ventured down to Hug Point later that evening for my step mom to take some photos of Brian and me at sunset and THAT is our new favorite beach. We’ve only returned to Hug Point when we want a beach day since. It’s incredibly beautiful and way less crowded. There’s also caves and nooks you can sit in to block the wind if necessary. Anyway, Sam and Lisa had a blast digging a huge hole and Brady got to fly a kite for the first time. We had dinner at a cute and delicious local brewery before continuing on to Hug Point (stay tuned for those gorgeous images in a separate blog post – there’s just a couple at the bottom of this post).

I put together a little video of our beach adventures and below are some of my favorite images from the day…. Funny that that the song is about Tennessee, but just pretend it says “Oregon” ;).

When the weather is nice at the Oregon Coast in February, you stop what you’re doing and you GO. That’s just what we did while my mom was in town. We were blessed with beautiful blue bird skies, little to no wind, and 60+ degree weather at Cannon Beach the week she was here. We made a little day trip of it and met one of my friends and her kiddos out there, too. What a dream!

We met for a late lunch and then hit the sand. Apparently the tide was up really high earlier in the day, but we lucked out with a low tide after lunch. The kiddos really enjoyed playing in the huge tide pools. In their clothes.  I brought Brady’s bathing suit, but didn’t end up changing him into it until after he was done getting filthy and we were headed back to the car- hah. Oops.

These are the memories that will stay with me as he gets older. I hope he’s able to remember some, as well.  I’m such a scheduled, to-do list oriented person (I mean, I have to be – running my own business and working from home and studio with a little preschooler!)  that it’s so freeing to throw in a spontaneous beach day!

Here are some photos from the dreamy day…

I love these photos, Lauren! What great memories of a perfect beach day!

Shannon Hager - Mar 17, 2016 at 09:03:41

I totally agree, if there is a warm sunny day in the winter, you must head to the Coast! These are beautiful and what a special day for everyone!

Oh my goodness… now I am craving a trip to the beach. Beautiful!
