Long Beach | Seaside :: The Ocean

Finally, I have some pictures ready to share. We spent the first couple of days at Long Beach, WA. And the last few days in Seaside, OR. This trip was super last minute. My Mom was planning on going down to the beach and we decided to go with her pretty much the day before she left. So glad we did!

I took a ridiculous amount of photos.... most of them were pictures I took while we were down on the beach. So this entire post will be dedicated to water, sand, and bennett. Some day soon, I'll get around to posting the rest of the pics that I took around town. :)

Bennett absolutely loved the beach. He ate lots of sand, chased the birds around, collected sticks, and tried running straight into the ocean. Kids are crazy because the ocean is freezing but they don't care at all. The only thing he didn't care for much, was the wind. It was super windy the entire time. But that didn't stop us.

Get ready for a massive photo dump!

I absolutely love his outfit: Girls Dig me! Hahaha! Awesome!
Beaches and kids are the best combination! Though it looks cold... Does it ever warm up in the PNW? Is the ocean ever warm enough to swim in it?
