Explore Oregon // Spring Beach Day

Earlier this month, we had an exceptionally warm, sunny day so we ended up heading out to the Oregon Coast with Cam’s family to enjoy it. It’s only about an hour and half from Portland, but every time we go, it makes me realize that we don’t do it enough! As usual, I couldn’t resist snapping some photos throughout the day, but the sky was just so blue that I just couldn’t help myself! 
We started off the morning in Seaside where there is a statue of Lewis and Clark to commemorate them reaching the Pacific Ocean…also, all these photos are unedited – the sky was so vibrant!
We then headed from Seaside just north up to Gearhart where there is a drive-on beach…
Lola is always a little timid around the water initially, but eventually she joined her cousins in the fun…
After awhile though, she gets tired and just wants to spend time with the humans 🙂
I love Lola’s face in this picture 🙂 
Even though it was warm out, the ocean was cold…but that didn’t stop my nieces from playing in it!
Yes, that would be my dog’s tongue covering half of my niece’s face…whoops, ha!
After licking Selah’s face, Lola proceeded to knock her in the sand and then ran over and plopped right in the middle of her beach towel…I don’t know what we’re going to do with that dog 🙂
After spending all day at the beach (where I got super sunburned!), we headed down to have dinner in Cannon Beach. It’s been such a pretty spring, I can’t get over all the blooming trees!
We were able to catch the last bit of sunshine in Cannon Beach – it was gorgeous!
I tried getting a family picture, but Meara and Selah weren’t super into the idea – ha! 

It’s been super rainy this week, but these pictures make me excited about more sunny days to come!
