Our trip was SO fun and relaxing. The view from our house was absolutely beautiful...such a gorgeous sight to wake up to every morning! We spent every morning sitting at the dining room table drinking coffee and watching the waves. The boys INSISTED they saw whales, hammerhead sharks and sea turtles through the telescope. :)
The house was big and comfy. My Uncle Ruben and his wife Denise, my cousin Stephanie and her kids Kellsye, Sydnie and Rylin all came to Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday. As you can see in the picture, Dad made the mashed potatoes. :) It was so fun to have them there with us! We had a coloring contest and watched a whole days' worth of football. We also got to drive into Tillamook to visit Dave's grandpa Kleinow and his aunt, uncle and cousin. It was a long, full, fun day spent with family - absolutely perfect.
You see, everyone is at the big race. You know where Lightning, the Dinoco King and Chick Hicks all race at the end? This is Coop's version of the movie. He watches it and acts out every part. He really has an amazing mind. The kid is smart. His imagination runs wild! He can't recognize letters of the alphabet or tell you what number that is on his flashcards, but he can set up this entire racetrack using blocks and place each one of these cars in just the right spot. Oh, what joy he brings me! Look at that proud smile. :)
