October Travels

Every year my husband’s family takes a weekend fall trip somewhere. Four years ago when we were dating we sent to Seaside, OR with his family The weather was beautiful, we encouraged them to go back every year. We were so excited we found out we were going back. The Ocean in October can be beautiful. I was even more excited to take pictures. My poor children are currently the only subjects of my photography. Here, Kollin’s family and the beach could also be my subjects. So here is a rundown of our trip through pictures.

Benjamin reading with his cousin and Grandpa. Benjamin knew his grandpa liked to read. So before the trip he kept saying, “Papa…book.”

Benjamin’s first time on the ocean beach. It’s not often you get to swing on the beach.

Gilbert got much more cuddle time than beach time.

They found a garter snake along the way. I hate snakes…the only thing Indiana Jones and I have in common.

The family had a photo shoot. One of our nieces is a photographer. It’s not often you get a shot of the photographer since they hide behind the camera.
