A TRIP WEST {2013}

I don't even know where to begin. We were gone for a month. We left on August 12th and flew to Bozeman, MT to see my sister and her family. The kids got to spend some quality cousin time and loved every minute they had to run in the snake and ant-free yard. 
Our next stop was Portland, OR. We flew in on August 21st and went straight to Boring Convention. How wonderful to be there. The Wilson's were generous enough to let us stay at their place.
That Sunday, I turned 30. Being at convention made it easy. :) It was so nice to be with all of our friends.

Sunday night, we drove to Tillamook to be with Rob and Laura Mae for a few days. We discovered the coffee shop in Oceanside so Donald actually suggested we go the beach two days in a row!!! The girls loved playing in the sand.
On the 29th we headed back to the valley to stay with Dennis and Jen in Newberg. We drove by our old house...drank coffee at the old hangout in McMinnville....shopped the farmers market....and bought fabric at the best quilt shop in town. We went twice to the air museum....Sunday was spent at Boring 2. It was a fabulous long weekend. 
Tuesday morning, we headed to Amity to see Auntie Doris. We had lunch there and then headed north through Yamhill to see my lavender lady. That night we spent the night at Dave and was so good to spend some time with them!

Wednesday, we drove back to the coast to spend a couple more days with Grandma and Grandpa....

Friday, we went back to Newberg....celebrated Dennis' birthday...
Early Saturday morning, we drove to the airport and flew back to Texas with Uncle Lyle in tow.

It was an amazing month. We loved every day of it....
