Seaside Oregon Magic!

Seaside Oregon welcomed the Schneider Clan last week. For many of us this is the one time a year we gather and enjoy quality time together. Can you see the Seaside glow look great on my niece Cheyenne?

Thirty plus years ago Dad and Mom Judy joined families. Since then our laughter and lore has grown into a well sung symphony...
The twinkle they share is contagious!

And what a symphony it is! While Audrey and Ryn were not able to come in person we knew they were with us in spirit too! Back: Tick's Tom, Marie, Galen, Libby's Theresa, Libby, Troy's Kelsey, Tick's Tom's Ben, Courtney, Friend Ryan, Krystal, Friend Jessica, Tick Front: Robert, Greg, Mom Judy, Dad Dutch, Judy's sister Janet, Cheyenne

Our birthday boy Robert! Whoo whoo! A man who loves to celebrate his birthday!

Happy Birthday Robert! You sure are looking good for 50 ;)

Libby and Greg with an anniversary glow!

They got married on Greg's birthday eight or nine years ago... makes it easy to remember!

Happy Birthday Greg!

Tick and Tom glowing for the heck of it!

The Oregon Coast is a perfect playground for us! We love the ocean, the birds, the sand and the sun...or rain. Add to it cards, puzzles, food and the Seaside arcade and life is a beach!

Did you notice alls those Schneider's bobbing in that freezing cold ocean? We love it! Truth be told I didn't make it this year...I was a wimp.

Our dining room table...aka as our card room.
Mom Judy is nice enough to give us a meal schedule for the week. We always have lots of delicious food from Tick's Tom's famous crapes, Robert's Indian food extra-ordinare, Judy's anything yummies, Libby & Greg's sausage wonders and last but not least a hot dog roast on the beach. Touch life at the beach eh?

The 5000 piece puzzlers puzzle!

Our mountain goats!

Gathering of hearts
As the evening nears
We share food and good cheer
Feeling very blessed by our time
Once again together this year

I am grateful for my many blessings

I am grateful for you!

Peace & Hugs Always
