Beat the Heat
This weekend is an especially good weekend to beat the heat by hitting the coast. We always end up at Cannon Beach for the day: it's just about 1 hour and fifteen minutes from here, there is plenty to do on the main drag if we ever get tired of just lounging on the beach (god forbid!), and there is that pizza place just by the beach entree where we always pick up snacks. We typically leave around 11am, which is just around the time that our 2-1/2 year old Tati is getting ready for naptime. She snoozes on the way out while we sing songs or play games with our 5-1/2 year old Philly. By the time we get there, everyone's ready for some beach fun.
We have also rented a 4-bedroom house in the springtime in Manzanita, and it was heaven! We shared it with a few other urbanFamilies, so there were 4 families playing and hanging out for the weekend. It's a great time, to rent a beach house with other families. You can have a complete run of the place; it's pretty liberating.
Liz is looking for more ideas:
I am planning a long weekend at the coast and am wondering if anyone has recommendations on a place to stay that is kid friendly. I have a 3 yr old and 6 mos. old. It could be a hotel, b&b or vacation house. Also any fun ideas of things to do?
