Mt. Rainier, Washington State!

Hello Friends! Before we went to Oregon, we stopped first at Mt. Rainier. My sisters have never been there and wanted to see it, and because it was such a beautiful day we decided that it was worth the extra time. I’m so glad to share this special time with my family¬† (got to enjoy God’s creation). Mt. Rainier didn’t disappoint! My hubs took the pictures and I think he captured the beauty of the place.

Oregon Trip!

Hello friends! Last week (days before Mia’s Bday) we did a quick road trip to Oregon. We visited Portland, Cannon Beach, and Seaside. Originally we wanted to see Multnomah Falls, but due to the fire that happened recently, it was still closed to the public. It was still fun spending time with family ( it was more of a food trip! HA! we ate too much) despite that it was a very hectic schedule. We ate at PokPOK thai restaurant (everybody loved their famous fish sauce chicken wings and thai iced tea). We enjoyed the ice cream at salt and straw, had doughnuts at Voodoo, shared sandwiches at St. Honore Boulangerie Cafe (Zach’s fave every time we visit Portland). We had seafood at The Crabby Oyster (food was Okay, nothing special) in Seaside.

What a quick yet fun road trip with family! It helped that Mia “cooperated” the whole time. She was such a little trooper!

Beautiful day at Cannon Beach
