Vacation Part 2, Day 2

Day 2 started with Brad taking Brent and Teegan on an early morning walk on the beach so Jakob could get some sleep and Mom could get made up for the day. They happened to have pefect timin to check out the Tide Pools near Haystack Rock and were able to see and touch Starfish and Crab.
When they returned we went to a neighboring town called Seaside and did some shopping, rode the carousel, and walked the promenade. Then Jake had a meltdown so we headed back early and took a rest. Brad took a walk with his Dad and got things set up for a family picture. The family picture time was a trial with all the kids being tired so we scrapped it and decided to try flying some kites.
After some great kite time Brad, his sisters, and their spouses (including me) left the kids with Grandma and Grandpa and had some alone time. Then we got the chance to have a quiet dinner together at the Driftwood Inn. It was great to be able to have a real conversation without having screaming kids interjecting.
When we returned it was time for bed and Grandma and Grandpa looked no worse for wear.
Here is a video for you to enjoy.
