In part of Celebrating Erick's big 32nd Birthday this year, thank goodness I'm still 29, we took off for a day of adventures just for dad! We didn't have any set plans when we left, but I'm pretty sure we made the day extra special for him! We drove through Union, Wa...and up to Hoodsport. We stopped at the Indian Res. for some fireworks too. We got Becca and Dad all loaded up with what they'll need for our upcoming 4th of July festivities!
Erick loves oysters. I think I just had a bad experience the first time I tried them, so I'm not a huge fan. Unless Aunt Judy is frying them. Then I can't get enough of them. Soooo good. One of our favorite places to snag fresh oysters is right in Hamma Hamma.
Yes, Cecile even came along for the trip today! I think she was a little overdressed though, don't you?
We adore Hamma Hamma. The beaches are lined and piled high with oyster shells. It's super pretty.
New to Hamma Hamma Oyster Co. is the Oyster Bar right on the beach. It was our first time, but won't be our last! It was great being able to sit out on the beach on such a beautiful day and let Erick enjoy his fresh oysters!
I love this man. So much. How I ever was blessed to find such a wonderful guy is a miracle and blessing too great for me to comprehend. I hope he had a wonderful day with his family today. We sure did enjoy him!
Erick ordered up a sampler of raw and grilled oysters. He probably would have ordered two dozen if I would have given him "the go ahead"!
We all just sat and watched him enjoy his "snack". After-all, this was his Birthday, and since Daddy wanted oysters, Daddy got oysters!
It was such a beautiful day! The weather was perfect and we didn't mind sitting outside with the kids. Noahh watched the birds, and Becca walked through the trails of oyster shells.
After Hamma Hamma, we continued our loop around Highway 101 and made it into Discovery Bay...for you guessed it....
Fat Smitty's! The girls and I were pretty hungry because we didn't eat at the Oyster Bar, so we couldn't wait to get our hands on some Fat Smitty's food.
After we ate, we journeyed back home. It was a 150 miles, round-trip today, and we couldn't have asked for a better adventure to honor Erick for his Birthday!
