Touring beach towns is how we chose to spend our fourth of July. We started at Cannon Beach visiting the famous Haystack rocks from the Goonies movie, then toured Seaside and Astoria before ending the night with a firework show on the boardwalk of Long Beach.

This adorable candy store is a little taste of heaven. We could smell their sweet fragrance from a few blocks away. It has every sweet you could possibly ask for. Everything from PB&J salt water taffy and fruit-striped gum to any flavor of Jelly Belly, along with many selections of fine chocolates.
Zack reliving his childhood days on those long drives to Grandma Smith's house. He would bite each gummi bear in half and then stick them to his face. I about died laughing when I found this out. He certianly lived his childhood to the fullest.
Yeah... about this. After our long day of touring beach towns we were tuckered out by the time it came to wait for the fireworks to start. We decided we better take a power nap to get us through the fireworks. Obviously, I needed it because I was out cold and didn't even notice when Zack snapped this precious photo.
Finally, we made it to the famous Long Beach boardwalk and enjoyed the show!
