Oregon Adventures Part 1

I just returned from a wonderful trip to Oregon to visit my girls. Summer is the perfect time to visit, you almost forget how gloomy it gets in the winter when you are surrounded by nice temperatures, mostly sunny skies, lovely green trees and hills and some of your favorite people! It was a busy week and I have lots of pictures and stories to share.

When I arrived Thursday morning, Jessie's 30th birthday adventure was already underway and I had missed 3 trips to Starbucks, a trip to Laura and Mark's and the unveiling of the fabulous 30 shirt created by Andrea. With my arrival we hit Starbucks #4 for me and headed for a day of shopping, lunch and cupcakes on NW 23rd in Portland. I created a 30th birthday challenge book for Jessie full of things she needed to accomplish all related to 30 and birthday. Here's a picture of the birthday girl in front of her first completed challenge, a building with a 30 on it.



Later that evening we had an almost surprise party at the Wild Pear. She saw a couple guests and their cars on our way in and became suspicious, but really thought we were having a BBQ at her house up until that point. The party was lovely and we had yummy food, good company and hummingbird cupcakes.



The next day we headed to the coast, hit the outlet stores in Lincoln City and headed to Depoe Bay for some whale watching....here's where we lost our keys in the ocean...oh yeah I'm serious! Poor Matt tripped on this lovely curb and caught himself and his camera on the sea wall, but lost the keys over the edge and into the ocean at least 20 feet down!


Go here to read more about how why Jessie and Andrea look so sad and see the video reenactment here.



Stay tuned for more fun pictures and stories!

O MY GOODNESS! Those cupcakes look scrumptious! What in the world did you do without your car keys? Looks like the birthday girl and everyone else was having lots of fun!

The the tale of the keys...not soon to be forgotten. That pic of Andrea & me is hilarious. Captures the moment. :)

The photo of the cupcakes is making me hungry. I need another one... :)
