Hello all,

Yikes – it’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything!  I think I’ll shoot for the once or twice a week blog post for a while.  Life has been pleasently busy taking care of Adelaide and keeping up with painting – two of my favorite things!  We just took our first ‘family vacation’ to the Oregon Coast – it was so nice to get out of town for a couple of days and to walk in some sand.   We tend to go to the beach most often in the Fall or Winter when no one is there and the weather is stormy.  I recommend it.  : )  Here are some pictures of our trip to Manzanita and Cannon Beach.
