Our First "Annual Stringham Family Reunion" at Seaside

*** For those of you who are family,I appologize, I know you have seen a lot of these pictures on my other siblings blog already... but since I keep this as a family journal, I am putting these pictures on again!!! So have fun reliving our reunion again***

This summer we had the oppurtunity to have our First annual Stringham Family Reunion at my Uncles beachouse at Seaside OR. My brother Jason and his family flew up from Pennsylvania and we were all together. The kids (and the adults) had such a great time. We roasted marshmallows, boogie boarded, played in the ocean, played in the sand, flew kites, played games, ate yummy food, and much more. It was so much fun!!!! Here are some of my favorite pictures.

(I have even more pictures but my hardrive is full and I have no more room to download all my pictures so I guess I will be buying an external hardrive for all my photos.)

Eric and Brody chasing the birds... Brody took this very seriously!!

WE had soooo much fun all day long, sometimes we had to lay down right there on the beach and take a snooze!

Brody and Blake enjoying a wagon ride on the beach. Have you ever pulled a wagon in the sand. What a joke. We only did that once. Best workout of my life.

Rebecca- our family photographer!

Jen and My mom by the camfire.

Uncle Jason, Blake and Jennible- wetsuits on.. quick pose for the camera, that off to the beach!

Jenn and Jennible posing for the camera.

Tommy and Ethan brought there laser tag guns to the beach. This was a hit, even for adults. Or kids at heart!!

And he is dead!!

This is serious business!!

Brody enjoying the beach. The hardest part was keeping sand out of his mouth!! He also learned to crawl on this trip.

Working together to build a sandcastle.

Blake and Davie's sand tunnel hideout!!

Maria Loves Eric!!

Blake Burried in the sand.

Tommy flying his star wars kite at Cannon Beach.

Booggie boarding is fun stuff.

Except when you do it on the sand. You don't go very far... or fast.

riding some serious waves.

Having a blast. This is before the coast guards called everyone in because of a Gray White Shark.

Blake and Davie taking turns with the boogie board.

Jason Stringham , Eric and Jason Kidd... What studs!!

Playing in the sand with Grandma.

We had a great time. I can't wait until we have another Stringham Family Reuion!!!

Thanks for the memories.
