Winnie's first big trip....

Well, let us tell you, traveling in Winnie is a whole.... new.... luxury!!

We can stretch on the couch and play all our travel games, like mini-scrabble, gameboy, or read our favorite books!!

Our first official trip was out to the Washington coast, in a little town called Ilwaco. Mom and Shayna were a little woozy by the time we got there, we were more than happy to see the ocean.

At first we didn't know what we were doing and parked backwards up with the big boys.

Then we got smart and camped the way we like to camp, in the woods.

The kids had fun exploring and we enjoyed marshmellows by the campfire... then came in, showered and slept great.

The next day we headed out to the water and put some kites together. It was warm with a gentle breeze, a perfect day for rookie kite fliers!!

Oops, Uncle Ron left his super frisbee in Washington and it has a permanent spot in Winnie. If he reads this blog, he might try to claim it back!! Oh no!!
We had a great time, to say the least.

We even got brave and drove her out on the water. GOOOO, WINNIE!!!!!
There's nothing like hot cheesy bread straight from the oven right at the beach. I'm telling you.... LUXURY!!! Amen!!

We did learn a lot this weekend. Being our first official run, we were expecting this. A few things we learned are:
1) mama needs dramamine ? (never got car sick before!! hope this'll change!)
2) JJ's bunkbed needs a rail
3) We need a better mattress
4) It's not about staying perfectly new...
It's about using what you have and learning to maintain.
Carpe Diem!!
