Road Trip

I love road trips. I love maps and planning out the course. I love seeing new places. I haven't been on a road trip in a long time. We left Friday after Chloe got out of school and came back Wednesday just in time for her to make it to her afternoon class. Dan didn't want her to miss too much school. She has already missed more than her fair share. But she's smart so I'm not worried. Anyway, we drove up past Portland and down the Oregan coast to the Redwoods in California then over to Crater Lake and back home. It was a little cold for a beach vacation but these very touristy destinations were completely empty. I had a goal of getting a good family picture to use for Christmas cards. We did not succeed. I'll try to post more pictures later.

Clearly you are trying to copy us in your road-tripping. (Cannon beach AND Crater lake? there's no other explanation)

That sounds like a great time. We've been thinking about a road trip to Oregon since Gavin is doing his state report on Oregon, but I just can't get excited about taking a 10 year old, a 3 year old and 9-month old on that long of a trip. You are amazing to attempt it! Glad you had fun.
