The first weekend in March, we went out to Cannon Beach with my parents. They were visiting to celebrate 40 years of marriage! Adam and I marked 2 years on March 1st, so we just have 20 x that to go!
Sloane was very happy to see G and Pa. She can even say Pa’s name now. Though half the time it comes out as baa, she is trying. They were able to see her walking and she walked on the beach for the first time. Though we had some showers that weekend, we also had some sunshine. One day when we walked on the beach, the wind was blowing the sand is crazy patterns. We chose to walk with the wind that day and returned on the streets.
Sloane is an eagle eye when it comes to bird and dog spotting. This means walking on the Oregon beaches is perfect. Haystack rock is a bird sanctuary and dogs are allowed on the beach. She enjoys waving to the birds and dogs and then asks for more when they go away.
We have a photo at home of Adam tossing our niece Ellie in the air in front of Haystack rock when she was about 3 years old. We attempted to recreate it with Sloane. Adam got her pretty high and I barely got her released out of my hands! But Sloane enjoyed the ride and we got some arm work out in during vacation.
It was a great visit with G and Pa. We can’t wait for them to come back soon.
