Over Labor Day weekend, we took a trip down to Cannon Beach. It was somewhat of a last minute thing, but it was great to go relax by waves, sand, sun, and breeze. I think we finally convinced Spiky that playing in the sand is fun.
We left Sunday after church, taking the scenic route closer to the coast. We crossed into Oregon over the Astoria-Megler Bridge, which is probably the longest bridge our kids have been on so far. It was pretty impressive seeing it before we got on it from the Washington-side:

We will need to see about revisiting — our stay was not quite long enough!
