Happy New Year!!!!

A few years ago we started a tradition of going to the beach for New Years with Cookie and Doc. Everyone comes down and we spend a few days of rest and relaxation. This year, we stayed in Watercolor just a few streets over from my aunt and uncle's house in Seaside, so we were all able to hang out together. It also happened to be my 30th birthday on New Years Eve, so my aunt, uncle and cousins came over for a birthday dinner that night. Spending time with my sisters, my soon to be brother in law and cousins was so much fun. We rode bikes, walked all around Watercolor and seaside, read, took naps and ate some yummy food. Luckily, my mom is a phenomenal cook.
Harper Kate wasn't feeling great down at the beach, but we couldn't really figure out why. She hadn't felt 100% over Christmas either, and I was starting to get a little worried. One night, at the beach,she woke up in the middle of the night burning up,and acting a bit strange. I went and woke my dad up,and he and my mom sat with Jarod and I while her fever came down. When her fever gets high, she has extreme seizures when she has pauses in her breathing. Luckily, we were headed home the next day so we headed to the doctor, which began a couple weeks of trying to figure out what was going on. More about that in another post.
The beach is Harper Kate's favorite place in the world to visit. She would be fussy at the house, but then we would take her to the beach and she would be happy. I think the best place for Harper Kate to live would be the beach, but her Daddy's job is more important. Hahaha!! We look forward to our next beach trip which happens to be in May!!!! We can't wait. Here are some pictures from the trip.
