The fear and anticipation of how our life is going to change once the baby arrives is likely far worse than the bundle of joy will bring us. But just to be safe we are making sure to use all our vacation and get plenty of travels in before the time comes!
For this trip we headed to Oregon hoping to catch most of the 7 wonders of Oregon, but happy to settle on the 7 of our own:
- Crater Lake
- Silver Falls State Park
- Deschutes Brewery
- Smith Rock State Park
- Tumalo Falls
- Columbia River Gorge and Indian Point Lookout
- Ape Cave Lava Tubes under Mount St Helens
We timed the trip perfectly to get the chance to celebrate EmSue’s cousin Wes’ birthday with his wife Lizzie and some friends, plus they were nice enough to take us in over Easter and show us the sights around Portland (sadly we were having such a great time we forgot to take any pictures with them).
The last time we were in Oregon was at the end of the cross country bike tour and had the opportunity then to explorer the Oregon coast. This time around we stuck mostly to the inland attractions and even had the chance to reunite with Gretchen whom during the bike ride delivered us some wonderful random acts of kindness.
It’s the people you meet while traveling that make the memories!
