We had so much fun on our three week vacation north to Oregon and Washington. We headed out December 23, quite early in the morning. Before getting to Oregon we stopped in Sacramento for a quick tour of the capital and to let the kids burn some energy.
We made it to John's folk's house Christmas Eve - just in time for a yummy dinner! Although we were pretty tired from traveling, we attended their Christmas Eve candle service.
The pictures I have of Christmas morning are a bit sketchy...I'm sure my sister in law has more of them...but these are the ones we took. Thankfully the kids slept in that morning (I had to wake Abby!) so we were able to catch up on some needed sleep.
I have more pictures of our trip, as these are only highlights of the first week. The second week we were gone we went to Washington - spent several days in Seattle, went up the Space Needle, toured Microsoft and Safeco Park, drove through the Hoh Rain Forest, spent the night in Astoria and Crescent City. I'll see about posting some pictures of that later.
