Vacation

We are heading out on a vacation in the morning. My oldest son will stay behind to watch the house and animals. He doesn't want to miss out on the money he will make. We are heading up the coast toward Oregon. My daughter came home for a visit and will come with us. She has done some research in to things we can do on our trip. I keep hearing that Sesame street song in my head. "Let's go exploring, it's never boring♪♪....so let's go explore and we shall see...explore, explore... EXPLORE!" My husband talked to a man at church who said, "We did that once. We went on a vacation when we didn't have any plans. It was the worst vacation of our life." Hmm..nice vote of confidence. We have camping gear, and we are prepared to stay in a motel some of the time. We do have a friend we can visit along the way, and some family members. I think it will be great!

Just some things we could see: Coos Bay, Crater Lake, The Tillamook cheese factory :), whale watching, Portland.

So I'll see you at the end of the week. Blog something good for me to read when I get back. :)

I was about 15 miles away from Crater Lake on a collecting trip once, and didn't make the detour. I regret not going.

I think you will have plenty to do and see along the coast. I would say see everything you can along the way - it's sometimes really tough to get back.

Have a great time. There's so much to see/do in Portland. I loved my 4 years living there. Make sure you head over to Multnomah Falls. Powells Bookstore in downtown Portland is an ABSOLUTE MUST SEE!!!! Walking trips around downtown Portland are also a MUST....lots of statues, and the Park Blocks down the center.

Jake's parents live just outside Grants Pass, OR and we go there every year for Labor Day weekend. We saw Crater Lake a few years ago and it's very pretty! Have a great time!

I know that with you and your daughter nothing can go wrong, so discard that man's words *nodding*!

Have a good rest and explore a lot!

We will be here when you get back! :D

We were just at the Tillamook cheese factory yesterday! Too bad we couldn't meet there for ice cream.
