Cape Disappointment-Quite the Opposite!

*Cape Disappointment

First of all we couldn't figure out why this gorgeous place was called that-but I did a little research and found that it was hard to find for traders and other ships, because of a string of bad luck that happened while trying to build a lighthouse. A lighthouse was needed badly because of all the ship wrecks, that stretch of beach is called the 'graveyard of the Pacific'. Lovely thought eh? Well it's a beautiful place to go play, so I highly recommend it! The light house is cool, in fact it's the oldest functioning light house on the west coast. You can't really see it in this little pic-but it's up there on the cliff-you can click on it to see it bigger. Every year for the past 4 years my family has gone to Cape Disappointment in Washington for the 4th of July. We have not been able to go because it's rent time from the first through the fifth, and Chad has always had to work. This year we were able to make it for a couple days since we got back before the 3rd (mandatory deposit day), and since Chad and the rest of the Myo-Med team were able to reach their goal of selling 200 cases in the month of June. We went from Friday, (after Chad got done with work) and stayed until Monday. We had so much fun that this is probably our favorite place to camp now. It is right next to the beach and yet the camping area totally feels like you are in the woods. Everything is so green and beautiful.


*Beach Bums
The kids stayed at the beach for pretty much the whole day each day. Zach and Ryeleigh found this board that looked like a surf board and Zach actually took it out into the water (I know crazy huh?) and surfed on the thing. He had a blast, scared us all a few times going to far out, but it kept him really busy, so that was a good thing. We all worked together to build a sand dinosaur, we of course buried a couple of the kids, Chad, Trae, Tony, Tyler and Jeremy all played football constantly (luckily we brought the MyoMed, Chad was very sore the next couple of days) and Ryeleigh and Kaylie dug a huge hole-all the usual beach activities. Tab and I of course took about a million pictures, there is no way I could post all the good ones! Topher loved it, this is the first time he could actually play on it by himself. There is a video of him running to the ocean for the first time-No fear! He was so cute!




*Ode to the Yurt

We stayed in a yurt the first night, because my mom and everyone didn't come until Saturday. Well we loved it so much we decided to rent one the other 2 nights. We had never heard of yurts before, (well Ryeleigh had, apparantly one of Tylers video games has yurts) but they are like big canvas tents with a wooden floor. It had heat and electricity and of course the best part was hearing Bekah say yurt. We were all thankful for a bed and a warm place to sleep, but she loved it the most. We all highly recommend yurt camping to everyone! (Chad even wants to put one in our backyard...)
