Day on the Oregon Coast

We had pretty much a perfect day today. We started off by driving out to the coast and playing on the beach for awhile. The weather was amazing (sunny and no wind) and Calla had a great time playing in the sand and laughing at Aspen digging and running around. Then we headed to the Oregon Coast Aquarium and saw lots of fish, jelly fish, seal lions (Calla loved imitating the seal lions call/bark), sharks, and lots more. On the way home we bought some Dungeness Crab and some ice cream cones for the road = A perfect fall day in Oregon!

Fall Fun!!!

Where do we start in describing our weekend. Friday night we had drinks with friends and agreed to show the house to one more interested couple before officially taking it off the market. Saturday afternoon we showed the house, Saturday night they called and said they would like to meet on Sunday and put in an offical offer.
So today we put in an offer on a house we have been looking at for several weeks, it was accepted, and this evening we accepted an offer on our house. We are so excited. In between we took Calla to a local farm and got pumpkins, apples, pears, and cider. The pictures of our fun with Calla and the house are below!

We took Calla on a hayride. She loved it!

Calla picked out three pumpkins for us. Look for carving pictures next weekend.

Calla loved looking at all the pumpkins, she loves exploring.

Calla loved the hay maze. She wanted to be like the big kids and climb the hay bales, maybe next year.

The end of a very fun adventure. Pumpkins and pears for our little toddler!

Now on to the adventures of mom and dad. Below are some pictures of our soon to be new house. We will be adding over 700 sq ft, another bathroom, a two car garage and so much more. We are kinda in shock tonight and hope all goes smoothly over the next few weeks.

This is the front of the house, very low maintenance.
This is the family room and dinning room.

This is the front entry room and the wood burning stove. It is so welcoming, we can't wait for visitors!!

Covered back porch.

Hallway that leads to 4 bedrooms!!!

Our new backyard is beautiful, a great sitting area, gardens, and even a red barn!!! We are so excited!!
