Hey all! Kirst here today, commandeering Jordi’s weekly feature so that we can share some family vacation pics. To be fair, we’re all here together, so it really IS a little glimpse into her life this week as well.
We’re staying at a beach house on the Oregon Coast and lo-oving it! Do any of you live near Lincoln City, Oregon? Gosh, it is gorgeous around here. And for those of you Northern Californians out there- Wow. Pretty much that’s all I can say- Wow.
Between gray whales and harbor seals and giant redwoods and beach exploring, we are loving the sites.
Even better, I think there are few things as fantastic as the pride you feel getting to see your siblings as their fabulous, caring, grown-up selves, caring for their own spouses and kiddos and pursuing the callings the Lord has given to each of them. What a gift.
Throw in some dominoes, a serious dose of teasing, a permanent Diet Coke Run partner (though, tragically, no Sonic) and the sweetest little cousin love you ever did see and you have yourself One. Great. Vacation. Seriously, my stomach still hurts from all of the laughing yesterday. And the best news of this post? We’re still here for six more days (more pics to come!).
What’s your favorite part of hanging out with your ‘grown up’ family? Do you play dominoes? Any favorite family traditions? Have any of you been to the Oregon Coast?
ps- Today’s post is part of a series called Hyatti, which means “My Life.” We love the chance to share little glimpses of regular life every week with y’all.
