Last minute trip to Long Beach, Washington 

One of the wonderful things about homeschooling is that you are able to take last minute trips, even during the typical school week. School just comes with you!

We are having some unseasonably warm winter weather here, so a last minute beach trip during the week worked out perfectly!

We had the pleasure heading to Long Beach, Washington, and what was supposed to be a day trip turned into an overnighter, meaning we could go see more!

My kiddos love the beach, and ESPECIALLY love staying in hotels, so they had a blast!

I had never been to Long Beach, Washington, despite the fact that I have lived in the Pacific North West my whole life. All of my previous beach trips have been to Seaside, Oregon or Newport, Oregon. This was a great experience to have as a first timer with my kiddos!

We spent the first day out on Long Beach. It was a different experience for me, as cars are allowed to drive out onto the beach!

Then we had a wonderful stay at the new Best Western Long Beach Inn. Everyone was so nice and helpful, and we were able to fit in some schooling here, as well as in the car.

On day two, we checked out some of the shops, then swung on over to Seaside, Oregon. Sadly, since it is still winter, many of the stores were closed for the season. Even so, the boys were still able to play at the arcade, walk around, and see the beach!

It was a great trip that the children really enjoyed, and I am so grateful to get to spend time like this with my family!

Have a great day!
