Washington / Oregon Trip

Jon and I took a 10 day road trip to Washington and Oregon, with a small stop in Utah! It was a blast, however all in all we drove 3,000 miles which is a lot with a baby! So here is our play by play!!

Day 1: Drive to Utah , ate at macaroni grill with friends and stayed the night with the Stewarts
Day 2: Drive 9 hours to Kennewick Wa. to see my parents! We suprised them by arriving 3 days early. Day 3: Drive to Portland Oregon! Jon and I stopped off at the Colombia River Gorge to hike and see all the waterfalls. It was incredible, we hiked to 3 different falls and had lunch at the bottom.
This was cookie's reaction when she saw the waterfall!We then continued to take the Old Scenic Highway and found this great overlook. ( I forgot the name)We were also able to see our friends the Jackson's and eat dinner, and stay at our friends the Bodmer's house.

Day 4: Woke up early went on a nice run and then headed to the Oregon Coast, Cannonbeach. Here we are eating at Mo's it was delicious!
Day 5: Woke up early and drove to Seattle Washington! Jon and I headed over to the arboretum by Washington State University. It was right on the lake and had trails to different botanical gardens. We ate at Madison Park and then headed to Pike Place Market to eat fish and chips.
Then we headed over to Westport, the Washington Coast, where we stayed in a condo on the beach with my sister and her family.
Day 6 & 7: Stayed in the Condo on the beach. Jon went deep sea fishing and we just relaxed.
Day 8 & 9: Drove back to Kennewick to be with my family sense my Dad was not able to come on the westport trip. I was also able to see my dear friends from highschool, it has been a long time, we ate ice cream at Red Robin and played catch up!Day 10:
Here is my sweet Dad that woke up at 4:30 to feed cookie her bottle and see us off. We made it to Utah stayed the night and headed for home in the morning.
