And we are home!

Glad to be back in Modesto, CA. After 6.5 hours of driving and three stops for food and potty breaks, we made it. Today we drove from Medford, OR to Modesto, CA.


On The Road Again

Today starts our three-day-journey turned two-day-journey home. We have had tons of fun, but we are ready to be home and decided it would be best to cut a day off of our travels home and do six hours each day instead of four.


We Got Wet!

Our last day at Great Wolf Lodge was a lot of fun. I had some one-on-one time with Liam and we went on the big kid water slides.


Great Wolf Lodge

The grand finale of our trip is finally here. The Great Wolf Lodge has lived up to its name so far. My kids are having a good time and so are we!


Seattle Center

We spent our last day in Seattle playing and visiting with friends who live in Seattle. Seattle Center has a lot to offer. We visited the Seattle Children’s Museum, International Fountain and the new climbing structure/playground.


Someone Burned Their Popcorn

We are in Seattle! We arrived mid afternoon and walked down to Pike Place Market. Though we got to bed at a decent hour, we were abruptly woken by someone who burned their popcorn.


Portland Children’s Museum

Portland Children's Museum

Today was fun, but very testing of our parenting abilities. Not sure if our kids are over-stimulated or their daily schedule has been disrupted too many times, but they have been kind of crazy today. The Portland Children’s Museum was fantastic. Tomorrow we leave Portland and head to Seattle.


Enchanted Forest

After leaving Salem, OR we spent the first part of the day at Enchanted Forest in Turner, OR. Enchanted Forest was amazing and our kids loved it. Silver Falls would have been amazing if we had the energy to go for a hike. We ended our day in Portland, OR at our hotel swimming and getting to bed at a decent hour.


Prehistoric Gardens

We drove a lot today. We left Klamath, CA and drove for 1.5 hours to Prehistoric Gardens in Port Orford, Oregon. Basically across the street we discovered Arizona Beach, which is a beautiful and clean beach with almost nobody there. We had the beach to ourselves. After leaving the beach came the 4.5 hour drive to Salem, Oregon.
