Family Vacay

So the family came to visit for a week. And I mean the WHOLE family. Mom, Dad, Sister and her family, and Brother and his wife. We spent a week in a beach house on the Oregon coast (which has quickly become my favorite place on earth) and the last night they were in town we spent in Portland.

I was worried at first that with 9 people in one house for an entire week, albeit a very large house, we'd revert to our childhood road trip days. That we'd end up in the car with my finger 1 millimeter away from my brother's face taunting "I'm not touching you, I'm not touching you" until he cried, while my sister read every road sign we passed aloud and my mom threatened for the 200th time that she would not hesitate to "pull this car over and spank you all".

Apparently we do grow up at some point. We had a blast! We ate, read, we played games, flew kites, went wine tasting, hit the casino, ate more, visited the aquarium, shopped, slept in, played on the beach and had an all around amazing week!

Nelson!!

My little bro and his wife. Aren't they adorable?!

I took a lot of pics since I couldn't wine taste


Aren't we a classy couple :)


Our house is the big brown one with the roof deck.
