Cannon Beach

The entire Himself Clan gathered together at Cannon Beach to celebrate Gramma and Grandpa Himself’s 50th Wedding Anniversary. What memories we created and shared! Here is a brief photo album of our time together.

We wrote big love notes in the sand.

Let the children take pictures of us for a change.



God’s Creation!

Invaded the beach.

Flew kites.

Built sandcastles.


Roasted marshmallows on the beach.

Acted Silly!

Celebrated their 50 Years Together!

    Glad you had a great time with your family!!! I love the idea of the kids taking pics of the parents for a change!!!

    I have a quick question — how did you make the glow-in-the-dark stick figure costumes? Did you take normal glow sticks and pin it to the kid's clothes? My daughter's old kindergarten class was so close that we have an annual camping trip together – this would be TONS of fun for them to do!!! Next summer will be our 4th annual trip!!! I'd love any suggestions you might have!

    Thanks :O)

    Thanks again :O) Happy Summer!!!

    Holy smokes! Your in-laws look just like the patriarch and matriarch of a large family we spent time with at Lakeside Bible Camp two summers ago. Is that possible?
