road trip to Oregon...
Ahh the beautiful beach. How's this for a change in scenery!?
Above: the house from the movie "Goonies"... one of my all time fav's as a kid, so of course we had to map it on our i-phones. To our surprise this year celebrates the 25th anniversary and a big celebration is scheduled for this coming weekend (darn we missed it by a week) the entire cast is coming back for the festivities...
a major highlight of the trip was watching Arlin Jack reunite with his buddy Palmer Sioux, they picked up right where they left off making Abby and I both realize just how much we miss play dates for these guys.
the gang, Kiko, Abby, Elysia and the boys walking back from the beach for dinner...We got to meet Abby's parents, what generous folks! (a suiting extension of Abby J.- I love putting faces to the names I hear in stories) They fed us yummy food just about everyday we where there-so unexpected, but well received :) thank you, thank you!
Our vacation condo was a perfect match and far better than a hotel could have ever been... an ocean view, comfy beds and all the amenities one needs for a stay away from home (especially with a 2 yr.old in tow!) We'll be coming back for sure.
Auntie Molly and the Captain got plenty of play time in...he LOVES her!!! (forget Mama when Auntie Molly's around!)
We're back home and unpacked- well, I'm unpacked and repacking...I'm off to California this Friday. Shhhh...Can I just tell you how much I'm looking forward to getting on an airplane without the baby! Away from the constant jibber jabber... maybe I'll read a book, maybe take a nap, mmm-or enjoy a glass of wine and not worry about "snacks,milk,blankies,etc.?! Ah, so looking forward to it. Although I'm sure, as always, I'll be missing Arlin like crazy the second day away...it never fails.
