Beach Trip '12


We are back from a fabulous family vacation at the Oregon Coast. As you can see, there were quite a few of us! (I especially love this great shot of my father-in-law in the back row ;)

And in direct correlation, there are quite a few photos as well...

The private lake our rental house is on. 
Handy for swimming, kayaking, fishing, and endless hours of playing in the sand.

And speaking of fishing...

 Letting one go.

 In an effort to protect the pride of my just-turned-16 nephew, the results of the above match shall forever remain undisclosed. 

But take a look at my hubby's face... that's pride right there!

Of course, I had no problem lording my win over my 13 year old nephew.

 And neither did his mother, the arm-wrestling queen!

The match-ups went on for quite a while! 


The Halverson men.

{from youngest to oldest: Blake, Lizzy, Cooper, Maddy, Mark, Kendall, Drew, Debbie, Derek, Sam, Mandy, & Ben}

I can't even tell you how much I enjoy this annual trip with all of Russ's family. Every year is better than before.

Sadly, the laundry remains as disastrous as ever.
