Girls' Beach Weekend

I have the coolest girlfriends in the world!

Eleven of us went away for the weekend, spending a fun and relaxing couple days at my grandparents' beach house in Oceanside. We did LOTS of eating, including the most amazing cheese potluck, complete with homemade bread, fruit from our community garden and fresh salsa.

I think every plate, bowl, pan and small appliance in my grandparents' kitchen was used at one time or another throughout the weekend! I awoke each morning to the smell of something magnificent baking in the oven. We stayed up past 1 a.m. Saturday playing Scategories and doing puzzles. We read, walked on the beach, napped, sunned, talked, laughed. We watched "Becoming Jane". We saw ourselves on TV! We cleaned up with Alison Krauss blasting on the stereo. We attended the Saturday evening service at the Oceanside Chapel and heard about peace and rest from Jesus.

We hit the Tillamook cheese factory on the way home and enjoyed our treats in the unseasonably warm outdoors. Then we took a little yoga break:
Some of us also hit the Blue Heron cheese factory and met this guy:
We're already planning our next no-men-no-kids weekend! Next time we won't plan as many meals and we will have hymns picked out for the church service! Can't wait :)
