Cannon Beach 2013

I wanted to share a few photos from our most recent family vacation. Cannon Beach is tucked away on the Pacific Ocean in northern Oregon. The quaint town is quickly recovering from the economic recession, and there are now fantastic restaurants and coffee shops that serve local foods and support the growing community. If you are looking for a chain grocery store or Starbucks, you are out of luck! Instead, get a fantastic caffeinated beverage from the Sleepy Monk. And while you're at it, head over to Cheri's Cafe for some excellent grub. For a day trip, head down the coast to Manzanita and hit up the Farmer's Market.

Cold winds and harsh rainstorms batter the Oregon coastline for a majority of the year, so the town and its surroundings are all cool grays and muted tones. Therefore, when the sun shines, it is almost too beautiful to bear. We were lucky enough to be there for one of those rare, sunny weekends. My sunburn just started peeling.

Everett had fun on our beach walks. Srsly, save up and get a BOB stroller.

Not impressed with the temperature of the water. 

Jeff and Willow playing on the beach.

 I love watching her run around without the leash.

 Best friends.

 Hoarders. Obvi.

 Some of the most inspiring endings become our most glorious beginnings.
