Road trip 2011 – part 5

Day 13 (11/19) – We stayed in Cannon Beach, OR to visit my sister, Debbie, and her husband, Troy. After taking a very large detour getting to their house, we had a very nice time together. The weather was absolutely beautiful and we enjoyed a little more time at the Pacific Ocean when we arrived.
Ecola State Park. Debbie and me at a lookout spot.
Our boy and some rocks. Beautiful sunset on the beach.Pb190140

Uncle Troy shared his enjoyment of guns and even blessed Hadden with one to keep! He also took some time to do some target practice and they all had fun shooting. I stood inside by the very warm fire :)
Thanks Deb and Troy for your warm hospitality – we had a great time seeing you!
Day 14-16 (11/20-11/22) We arrived into Portland later in the evening, so we went straight to the hotel in Wilsonville to rest up. We stayed at the same hotel where our wedding reception was located almost 12 years ago.
While John took the kids to OMSI and a day out at the mall, I got to spend time with my 1/2 brain and bff, Heidi. She and her husband, Rob were blessed with little Maximus last February and this is the first time I got to meet him in person. So much fun catching up with Heidi and playing with the little man.
Heidi and Maximus. We were training him early to enjoy some Star*bucks! (Don’t worry, it was the clean, extra cup they put on for insulation.)
So sweet to spend time with them! Thanks Heidi for a great time visiting!
Day 17 (11/23) – On to Pendleton to visit my sister, Linda, and her family.
Carl (and his puppy, Spot :), Linda, Jordan, Hope and Carl and Girl.
I had to sneak a shot of Caleb before he left for work. Hope, Savannah and Girl. Hadden and Carl.
Thanks Carl, Linda, Caleb, Jordan, Hope and Carl for the nice visit, good food, and fun cousins game of Pictio*nary!
Next up: Idaho
