Vaycay Recap Part 2: Beach Life!

If you missed the first part of my summer vaycay recap, click here.

On Sunday morning we met up with AJ's brother Matt to make the 90 minute drive to the coast. Matt arrived in Portland Saturday after his Mexico trip and stayed with friends that night. We hit the road and Matt was an excellent DJ. We arrived in Lincoln City (where we got engaged and honeymooned!) around lunchtime and met up with AJ's parents at a seafood restaurant. It was so great to see them again. After lunch, we headed to our beach house! This place was adorable! It was 3 big bedrooms, a nice kitchen, a game room, and a beautiful balcony just steps from the beach. I sort of wished I lived there!

Our 3 days were full of family time, some casino time, visiting the outlets, cooking at the beach house (well, AJ's awesome mom cooked!), sleeping in, walking the beach, going to Depoe Bay to see a whale, going out for delicious pizza (recommendation from Seattle cousins. Thanks guys!), and reading on the balcony. On Tuesday evening we had family photos taken. AJ and I took some maternity shots during that time too. Our beach house days were heavenly! There's no place like the the Oregon Coast!

One of my favorite parts of the beach was on our last night there we made a fire on the beach, ate S'mores and watched the sunset. The beauty is majestic!

Wednesday afternoon we headed back to Redmond (about a 3 hour drive). We stopped by Oregon State for some beaver gear. Go Beavs!

When we got back to Redmond we went to dinner with some family friends. Our time in Redmond was really fun and relaxing. We went to the movies (little known Leslie fact: I LOVE Planet of the Apes movies and the new one was no exception), AJ golfed with some buddies, we went to Bend and explored, AJ's mom and I went to a Parade of Homes thing. We went to some million dollar homes with incredible views. AJ's extended family from Medford came to visit on Saturday and Sunday morning we hit the road and after 12 hours we arrived back to home sweet home!!
AJ's dad made us this adorable shelf for next to our couch. It's rustic and has X's on the side. I love it! 

This little bunny was always in the backyard in Redmond! I loved him! I left him lettuce, celery, and bread cubes one night and he ate it!

We had a wonderful summer vacation! We love our friends, family, together time, and road trips! Until next time!
