Oregon Coast

The first week of June, Jerid and I and his family took a great trip to the coast. The weather was aweful and I wished that I saw the sun a few more hours each day, but we enjoyed it all the same. Jerid and I were more than anxious to get off work and school and spend some time together. Unfortunately for Jerid, he spent a lot of time studying and taking tests while I relaxed and watched movies and played with the kids.

We took our little Millie for her first visit to the ocean, which she was scared to death of. I'm not sure if she was scared of the water or scared of the freezing cold temperature. I'm sure it was the cold, we were all goose-bumped out most of the time. Jerid burried her during her afternoon nap in the sun.... she was so sad when she woke and realized she couldn't move.... haha...... my husband's a trickster.
The second day we were there, Tim, Jerid's Dad, took us on a Salmon fishing trip that was awesome! We left at 4:25am to get to the ship in time to push off. Once out there, we were fighting these fish like it was the end of the world! I wish I would have taken some pictures of the bruises I had on my body the next day. We also saw whales, sea lions, and the boys saw a blue shark about 18 miles out. It was spectacular! So at the of the day, all in all, we brought home seven beautiful, huge fish to cook up.

This trip was much needed and much appreciated.... I can't wait to do it again next year, I'll cross my fingers.
