So for the July 24th weekend we went up to Portland Oregon. We flew up on Thursday night and came back Sunday. My aunt Sarah met us at the airport and brought us an extra car seat for Jacob so that we didn't have to pay to bring one on the plane. She also brought us a stroller both of which were very helpful. We stayed in Beaverton the first two nights of our trip. We went to Multonomah Falls on Friday. We actually hiked up to the top (carrying Jacob most of the way). It was absolutely gorgeous! Ihave been to this waterfall many times but I had never hiked to the top - it was worth it. Friday evening we went to Sarah and John's house for dinner. Jacob enjoyed playing with their three little boys. After we left there home we went and walked around the Portland temple grounds - I love the Portland temple. Saturday we went to the Tillamock cheese factory the ice cream there is divine. Then we went out to Cannon Beach and met my cousin Kristin with her family. Saturday night we stayed in a hotel in Seaside Beach with an ocean view room - it was so beautiful. We walked along the beach, played in the sand, went running on the beach (my favorite place to run), and visited the little shops. The next day we visited 2 or 3 beaches before we headed back to the airport. Sarah was such a help, I don't know what we would have done without her : ). I'll have to add the pics tomorrow because it is 12:30, I'm tired and the add pic button isn't working : ) good night.
