Egg Hunt 2016

I think every single blog post I've written in the last 3 days says "I wish I wasn't so behind" but it is the truth.  I live most of my life behind and my blog is no exception.  I sat down at the computer today to send some pictures to my parents and told myself I was going to at least post some pictures from the sweet time we had with our family over Easter weekend.

We've tried to take advantage of living close to both of our families over the last year and since we were planning to travel the weekend after Easter we decided to make one long trip.  I am so glad we did!

My Mom hosted an egg hunt for the kids and I managed to capture most of them.  I was so thankful for the beautiful weather.  And for once....five faces all looking at the camera!




Kelsey Jane--11 months


The Reedster--a month shy of 4


All five looking and semi-smiling!


Just precious!


It's rare that I even get three looking in the same direction!


Nola--6 and 1/2


Stafford-- 5 and 1/2 (as he likes to tell everyone)

PCS 2014

We are off!  One last picture on Adams Street


We made it to Cannon Beach for our first night


I was so thankful to find our hotel had a tub with nice hot water.  One of the things I did miss while living in WA!


Breakfast on the terrace


Headed out to see Haystack Rock







Gorgeous views along the Oregon Coast


Had to make a stop at the Tillamook Factory


Stafford pointed out the conveyor belt (thanks to hours of watching Mighty Machines!)

Sealions








Lighthouse on the Oregon Coast




When you have to go you have to go....especially if you are 4


Paul Bunyan & Babe the Ox...finally in California!




Root system of a Redwood


Fulfilling Peter's lifelong dream


Stafford talked for MONTHS about going over the Golden Gate and he slept through most of the crossing!




Had my first In - Out after 3 hours in the urgent care.  Thankful for sweet friends who took care of us while we were in San Francisco 


Exploring Yosemite











Marking Nevada off the list




We played at playgrounds across the country


Enjoyed endless expanses of sky





Entertained ourselves in the car....



And in hotel rooms...





and explored each stop.









When we finally reached Illinois I missed the Illinois sign so I totally made Peter turn around so I could get a picture of it!  He is so good to me and complied!



Our first Illinois sunset


And now Eulers move east is complete!
