Vacation






This is why I suck at blogging...I've been meaning to blog and post vacation pictures since we got back, but vacation pictures are on the laptop, and every time I thought about blogging I wasn't near my laptop, so I haven't blogged for almost a month. It's got to be easier than I'm making it.

Anyway, here are some pictures. We spend the first 3 nights at Jedidiah Smith Redwoods State Park, 9 miles east of Crescent City, CA (the northernmost city on the California Coast). We found a great playground, learned about bears, drove through a tree, played frisbee, took little hikes, played on the beach...and then got rained out.

Fortunately we were able to get our reservations changed at the one-star motel we were staying at in Ashland, OR. We went to the park, went to the ScienceWorks museum, went to Applegate Christian Fellowship, had pizza and bagels (I miss bagel shops--for some reason there are none nearby) and headed home.

We did make it in time for Shiloh's dance dress rehearsal, which was good. And we had a great time and made lots of great memories. It seems like we're wanting to do more family stuff these days instead of getting caught up in getting stuff done around the house or going off by ourselves to get some peace and quiet. And definitely hoping to camp again this summer...probably just weekend trips, but something to get us outside and away from the house. :)

Your vacation photos are just beautiful, I especially love the one where you wrote in the sand, very special shot.

Hope you are well...miss you!
