We started our long drive to Oregon. Gavin was a really good baby in the car. He thought it was fun to look over and see me...it was a little bit of a distraction though, because he had a hard time sleeping with me back there! We stopped in Boise and had dinner with a friend of the family, and then spent the night at a hotel.
We left early in the morning and headed across the state of Oregon. We spent the night at my mom's cousin's house in Sweet Home. They live right up in the mountains and have a beautiful view, as you can tell.
We headed out to the Oregon Coast early. We stayed at my mom's friend's house, which is right on the coast. It was beautiful there! We just had to take a quick 5 minute walk...and we were there!
Gavin loved the fresh air and hearing the waves...
Isn't it beautiful!
He woke up after a while and talked with Grandma
Later on Wednesday, we traveled up the coast to Seaside, where we have a condo that overlooks the beach. It was nice to stay in our own place for a change. Our balcony had a beautiful view of the ocean.
We went to "The End of the Oregon Trail" interpretive center. That was really enjoyable to see a video and hear different stories about those who make the trek to Oregon.

That evening we went to another one of my mom's brother's house. He was getting married on Saturday, so it was very crazy there! It was fun to see the kids. It has been a while since I have seen them! Nicole and Noah use to live with us for a couple years back when they were little, so it was really fun to see them growing up!
