Today our family made a trip to the Oregon Coast. For this trip we visited the city of Newport and Nye Beach. With the arrival of our newest child we knew we wouldn’t be able to take an extended trip but we wanted our daughter to still have some summer fun. We are lucky enough to live just about an hour from the coast and we absolutely love visiting the beach and putting our toes in the sand. Today the weather was slightly overcast but it was pretty nice day for what us Oregonians would consider a nice day at the beach. We played in the sand with our daughter, put our feet in the water, walked on the beach and also spent some time just sitting and watching the waves wash up on the shore. We spent about 2 hours at the beach before leaving to get lunch.
