Oregon: Where It All Began

So, our real adventures began along the Oregon coast..a trip I'd done with my mom when I was a kid. When Liam was 3 I decided it was time to take the family on a two week road trip.  Best trip ever, btw. I highly recommend the trip to anyone wanting a BEAUTIFUL drive with lots of fun stuff to do along the way.

We started in Seattle, and went down to Astoria, Lincoln City, Bend, Bandon, then Crescent City CA., back up through the Willamette Valley and home.

Since I had JUST gotten my Cannon Rebel DSLR, I was excited to play with it. Allan, also decided to purchase a little Nikon point and shoot while we were down there.  Some of my favorite shots are from this vacation.  I took nearly 2000 shots, and while MOST of them aren't great.  There are a few that really turned out...or still make me smile to this day.
