Arcadia with Friends

We met up with our Disneyland friends at the Oregon Coast. It was a beautiful day.

The kids immediately got sandy, before I could get them all sun screened. Luckily, they don’t burn as bad as I do. I missed ONE spot on my foot and it was bright red the next day!

Baby Dragon is at the age where she feels like she needs a friend in order to enjoy things. I was happy when S arrived!

The tide was low and the kids discovered LOTS of crabs living on this rock. They had the best time crab hunting the whole time.

Ick, looks like a spider!

I took some family pictures for R’s family. They love coming to the Oregon Coast and she is a fellow photographer. She says that she usually only gets family pictures by setting a timer on her camera! I was happy to help her get some without having to do that!

I thought it was so funny that R took these pictures of S with her son on her back!  The kids are still crab hunting.

Sweetie is so sandy!

027-storyboard

The kids wanted to dig holes for themselves.

Captain Adorable and Sweetie found the biggest possible sticks to write in the sand with.

It was funny watching them try to wield these branches.

Meanwhile, Baby Dragon spent most of the day creating Crab-topia. She made a sand castle and built little holes to put the crabs in. I made her pause for a picture.

034-storyboard

She is looking so grown up!

035-storyboard

I pulled her hair back to make her work easier.

Here she is creating a crab hut.

S joins in on the fun.

I made them pose together for pictures. S and Baby Dragon communicate a lot on their phones. So they are pretty comfortable together, even though this is only their 4th time being together in person.

042-storyboard

Such cute girls.

Sweetie and M bring over the crabs they have collected to put them in Crab-topia. The crabs seemed to enjoy their little huts.

045-storyboard

A baby one!

046-storyboard

This was the queen crab. Ouch!

047-storyboard048-storyboard

The King and Queen had their own towers.

The King escapes.

They also made a sanctuary for the priestess and there were about ten other huts that were all inhabited.

R’s family invited us to join them for hotdogs on the beach! Yum!

055-storyboard056-storyboard

Sweetie didn’t want to put the crabs down! I made her use hand sanitizer before she could eat.

057-storyboard058-storyboard

Baby Dragon organized all the kids with shovels and named them dwarves. Then she had them line up and sing Hi Ho and dig. It was fun to see her still using her imagination.

059-storyboard

S’mores! I took a couple pictures of R and S.

And we said goodbye to Crab-topia and our friends.

That crab shell is the priestess’s home.062-storyboard

We had so much fun!
