Danny and I love love love Cannon Beach. We had such a great time there for the Fourth last year that we immediately began planning to go again this year. Unfortunately, our children don't share our love of the beach yet.
We brought some great friends along with us this time - Kyle and Bianca Skogen - and their little guy appreciated the ocean about as much as Ollie did. Which is to say not at all.
However, we took turns hanging with kiddos at the townhouse we rented and got some time on the beach, along with a few other outings that we dared take them all with us on. Like watching the fireworks on the beach in Seaside, when Kyler hated the sand the whole time and Ollie acted he got shot every time the fireworks went off. These pictures are mostly from the first day when Ollie and Kyler hadn't yet developed the terror that that ocean brought them the whole rest of the trip.
