We went up to Okuma on April 18th just for the night.  We headed up their with the Salas family.  I use the  term "we" loosely because Joe wasn't able to get off work for one day.

How do you know you are really good at your job??  Because you never get time off.  In the military you get X amount of days off per month.  If you don't use those days then you lose them.  Joe has lost so many of those "Use or Lose" days.  When he was deployed he saved up all of his days and he lost all of them also.  We thought he would get to use them here but nope.  He wasn't even able to get time off when our household goods arrived to help me unpack.

The beach was a lot of fun and the kids had a blast.  Even Carter had fun with his baggy on his arm.

They had these awesome bikes there to rent.  Leann and I hung out with the babies and brave Ramon took the four older kids on a ride.  The kids all had so much fun.
That night we roasted some marshmallows and hung around the fire.

The next day before heading out we went back to the beach and had some more fun!!

The kids and I did have a blast at the beach but we will be looking forward to the time we can all go as a family together.
