Way back in the beginning of July, we headed south to Cannon Beach in Oregon.  It's a fav place of ours and we try to visit every year or every other year. We certainly have favourite spots and can't go to the area without visiting them.  I suppose we are just creatures of habit.

We stayed once again in a little cabin at the Sea Ranch RV park in Cannon Beach. While it houses us perfectly well, I don't know that we will stay there again. It costs just a little less than a hotel and you have to bring all your own bedding plus the beds really aren't that comfortable. The kids sleep on the bunk bed and we on the futon and once it's folded out, there is zero room. It just feels like more work than necessary for the same cost as getting a room at a hotel with far more space. Next year we will rethink things.

Like I said, we visited our usual spots but also journeyed a little further south this year to Tillamock to the Cheese Factory. It's gotten a whole lot bigger since our last visit years ago. We had a super great lunch, toured the factory and spent too much money in the gift shop on silly things. Back in Cannon Beach, we went to Bruce's Candy Kitchen and Pizza a Feta. We went to Seaside one evening for mexican food and games at Funland. After three great nights, we headed to Portland to see our good friends the Roller's (blurry pic below). 
OREGON we love you and look forward to our next visit.

"a portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2018"

Jackson: Lost in his phone. A very typical moment that is very easy to catch.

Lily: I've been going through some rough times as a result of kidney stones and some surgery but good light outside called my name and she was a willing subject so outside to the backyard we went. Very oddly, her shadow showed up in the shape of a horse. She was beyond thrilled when we went throught the pictures and discovered this. She believes it must be her spirit animal. 😊
