This year our Gough Family vacation was spent in the surprisingly sunny Long Beach, WA. There were 17 of us this year- WOW! I had been looking forward to the break from our everyday schedule, to spending time with Jeff all week, enjoying the company of my big Gough family, and receiving the blessing of generosity from Jeff's parents who not only provided the amazing accommodations but also blessed all of us with babysitting so that we could truly have a "vacation" with our spouses. It was fabulous!
Our little family started the trip off with a stop off in Olympia for brunch at Sage's Brunch House. We then headed straight to the resort and straight into the pool, where we spent a good portion of time each day. Wes learned how to swim all by himself with his life vest and became very comfortable with dunking his head underwater...some really big achievements on this trip! And that's not all, he also became officially potty trained- hooray!
Vacation included a couple of trips to Waikiki Beach, a visit from Mario & Ely (congratulations on your wedding, hope you're having an amazing time in Hawaii), a day trip to Astoria and Cannon Beach, a bit of thrift shopping, delicious meals, a few naps, an art project, kite flying...fun, fun, fun.
Here are a HEAP of photos from our vacation.
