Thanksgiving in Lincoln City, OR

As is a Bickmeier family tradition, we spent Thanksgiving with Brian's parents, his sister Jennifer, her husband Jason, their three kids Caleb, Luke, and Cate, his brother Jeff, his wife Laura, and their daughter Ada at a beach house in Lincoln City, OR. It had been two years since we were all together, so there was a lot of catching up to do!

Luke and Cate watching the waves from a safer distance. Luke.Cate is a master sandcastle builder (or at least that's what she told me).Jennifer spends the majority of her time with a camera in hand. She has a very keen sense for lighting and takes amazing photos. Our cutie niece, Ada.Laura.Me!Brian and my footprints coming back from a walk on the beach. Our shadows on the same walk. It was pretty early in the morning, so there were great shadows everywhere.One of the highlights of the trip was a siblings outing to the Rogue Brewery. We all had to wear safety glasses. Brian said he felt right at home being that he wears similar goggles all the time at work. Jeff was so excited he could hardy contain his enthusiasm.
A very pretty sunset on the plane ride home. What a wonderful time! Can't wait to do it again in two years. :) Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
