Ocean Shores, WA!

Hello friends, last week we spent 3 days at Wesport and Ocean Shores, WA! We try to do this every year (together with my In laws) as a family thing, but for the last couple of years we haven’t been doing it (last year I was pregnant with Mia, I didn’t feel like traveling).

We already have a “routine” every time we do this! First stop is always Brady’s Oysters(in Aberdeen) and get some smoked oysters and salmon to enjoy during this trip. We also get tuna belly and loin at one of the many boats at Westport too. After getting our seafood, we shared fish and chips from Bennett’s (so good).

After Wesport, Off to Ocean shores we go! I think the drive time is around 1 hour and 30 minutes. We rented a cottage house, that was just walking distance to the beach (5 minutes walk from Damon beach), we really like the rental it was clean and enough space for the whole family (plus it has a nice hot tub). We had fun times with family, especially Mia who get to experience the Ocean for the first time! Although Zach had a little injury ( he fell and twisted his ankle) and had to spend the afternoon in bed, it was still a good getaway with the family,we are already looking forward to next year! p.s: LOTS of pictures coming your way!

Labor Day weekend!

Hello Friends! Happy Labor day weekend. Hope you had a great and safe time doing fun things with family/friends. Ours was pretty busy over here!  We went to the fair with family (eating junky fair food, which is my fave part!), and we attended our neighborhood labor day/bbq party!

Mia had a wonderful time at her first fair.  She did so good despite it being so hot out!  It got to at least 98 deg F in the shade! I wanted to take her on a carousel ride but she was too short for the ride, maybe next year!

We went to Church and then afterwards we discovered the Wing Stop restaurant near our favorite ramen place…and now it’s our new fave chicken place! Hubs and I loved all their different flavors and dips.

Hubs pickled our cucumbers from our garden, I’m excited to have this because he always wanted to try pickling and now it’s happening! HA! Good job, Ga:)

We joined our neighbood bbq/labor day get together and we brought deviled eggs and caramel flan (leche flan). It was nice to see and get to know more about our neighbors (more than the usual wave!). I love it, it’s so diverse! American, Indian, Chinese, South African, Filipino families in our area!

Hungry much ga?!


I’m off to bed now, it’s been a long busy yet fun day! Have a great day:)
