It began Friday when we went to Steve's hometown to take pictures of my nephew, Liam. He'll be turning one soon, so we had a photoshoot for his birthday party invitations. I also dropped Ellie and Olivia off at their grandparents for the weekend. I was sad to leave them, but it was nice to have some hubby time where we could literally do anything we wanted. We ate in peace, went to a late movie, walked around in the rain.
Saturday morning we left to go camping with our friends, Jon and Katy, at South Beach near Newport, Oregon. It was perfectly lovely weather and we built a bonfire on the beach and everything. It would have been perfect if we hadn't left the chocolate in the cooler and ended up s'more-less.
On our way out of town on Sunday we went to the Oregon Coast Museum. It was pretty cool. Did you know that sea otters are the only sea mammals that don't have a thick layer of blubber (like whales and sea lions)? Instead, they have an incredibly thick coat of fur. They have about 1 million hairs per square inch. Humans, by comparison, have about 100,000 hairs over their entire bodies. Sea lions spend about a third of their lives grooming their coats to keep them in top shape. So there's your fun fact of the day.
Perhaps the best part of the weekend was when we finally got back to the girls. Ellie ran up saying, "Yay! Mommy! Mommy! Yay! Yay!" It made me feel very loved and missed.
And on Monday I did a newborn portrait session of baby Genevieve. She's the sweetest ever. I can't wait to show you the pictures!
How was your weekend?
