Spring day at the Coast

We decided to take a little day trip yesterday.



It was a rare day on the Oregon Coast. The sun was actually shining.



We visited the aquarium and saw lots of cool fish and got to check out a very heavy diving suit.



This has always been my favorite area. I just love to take photos of these boats!



It was a bit windy down by the ocean but that just makes for better seaweed flying, right!



While we were off playing, I had Swedish Meatballs cooking away in the crock-pot to have for dinner when we arrived home. There was an accident as we were heading home and we had to turn around and drive 2 hours out of our way to get back. I was worried that the meatballs would be over-cooked, but they turned out great! Thank goodness I turned the crock-pot to low!!

Stay tuned for this yummy and very easy recipe!

~Happy Sunday to everyone!~

Whenever I think of Oregon I think of the reality show Little People, Big World.

Oh, and my Grandma. She also lives there.

Awesome pictures :)

Yes, I remember reading that verse when I was a teen.

Glad you had fun! The pictures are great, especially him on the sand with the water in the background.

Looking foward to the recipe.

Great pictures! Too bad about the extra driving time. Hope the people in the accident were okay. I love crock pot cooking. It makes it so easy and the meals usually turn out great. Love you!

Oh we were just in Newport a few weeks ago. I miss the Oregon coast soooo much. You are so lucky that you are able to go and you are just a hop skip and a jump away.

Thank goodness for the crockpot! I don't think I've ever actually ruined anything that I've put in there.

Looks like a fabulous day. Glad you were able to get out and enjoy it (in spite of the trouble getting home)!

I'm looking forward to diving into your recipes from last week now that we're home :)
