For Dommy's Birthday (Sept. 3rd) we went to the Oregon coast with the Powers family (Mike's sister and her family). We had a fantastic time. The highlights included crabbing with Jeff, Madison, and Nicholas, flying kites, trying to go clamming on the seashore, Dommy's birthday meal, Madison's birthday song in Spanish, and lots of great meals at the house. Here are pics of Dominic at two years old and measuring almost 3'1", Dommy and his watermelon/ant cake at the coast, and a few shots of us playing on the beach:
On the way up to Waldport/Newport we got to stop by Kirsten's Uncle Dennis's house in Canyonville. It was really nice to see him and finally check out the town we'd heard so much about. Hopefully we see much more of him! Here is a pic of Uncle Dennis with Kirst and the boys, then Mike with Dommy on the shores of the Umpqua River (flyfishing heaven) near Uncle D's house:
We opened gifts at home after returning to Lakeview, and Dommy loved his firetruck and Eeyore from Grandma and Grandpa Cass, his new soccer goal from Mom and Dad, and all the gifts. Quite the haul--He's been enjoying them lots ever since!
