Oregon Coast Cousin Retreat

As part of our 3 week Oregon trip the boys and I spent 3 nights at my sisters Beach House with some of their cousins...22 in all (to 7 of us adults!). I must say it was a lot of work for me and my sisters but totally worth it when we'd see our children enjoying each other. So much fun!
Above is half the group, the younger ones enjoying some time at the beach.
Ryan with Emma and Claire.

Josh and Kate cleaning off all the sand!

Claire got the "dirtiest" award for sure!
Looks cold but it was actually about 80 and humid.
Emma, Ryan and Claire posin' it up again!

Steph with her "Mini-Me." Kate is Mindy's daughter but looks just like Stephanie did
when she was little.

Love those pictures! It's fun to see other shots that I wasn't around to see. I had a blast and miss your sweet little family!

What a fabulous trip. I need better relatives... the kinds with beach houses.

After our 2 weeks on the Oregon and Northern California coast last summer, I fell in LOVE. It has to be one of the most beautiful places in the country. How much fun would it be to do with so many siblings.

Now I think I not only need better relatives (the kind with beach houses), but I also need MORE relatives!
