We spent four nights at the beach this pat week...no matter how long we stay, it never seems like enough time! The weather was positively glorious--sunny every day!
|First evening on the beach (Tuesday)|
|With my sweet boys|
Wednesday, the 4th, was busy...we started out with the hokey little parade in Rockaway. It seemed shorter than usual, but the kids got plenty of candy!
|Kieran before the parade|
|Nick kept posing by flagpoles, saying "I am the president!"|

That evening we had a very windy campfire on the beach and made s'mores. Then back to finish the movie and go onto fireworks.
|Kieran loves to be buried in the sand|
|Leftover pie crust appetizers|
|The blackberry/blueberry pies|
|Mike's given up dairy in addition to gluten, so I made him a gluten-free/dairy-free pie (not easy!)|
|All the kids (3 boys and 3 girls!!)|
Later in the week we watched "The Trouble with Angels" with Hayley Mills and Rosalind Russell--really funny! Back to Portland on Saturday...into the heat!
