California Dreaming: LA to Williams Ca./ Williams to Eugene Or. / Eugene to HOME!



Friday morning we were awake nice and early. (Thanks boy!) I did a load of laundry, we packed up, and hit the road. The first night we made it to Williams, California. We stayed in a Quality Inn. There wasn't much in this little town except for maybe some mosquitos. The boy and I went for a swim, we had some Chinese food and we hit the sack. The internet at this hotel was one device at a time. So annoying! 

Walmart parking lot chill - Yreka... dad left a car here once? 

low riding pants. 
Swim time! 






Noodle face.
The next day we were up even earlier and we made it to Eugene, Oregon. We stayed in a Super 8 and Jonny got us a pizza.









Hot air balloons all over the place - taking off from every field. 
And our last day driving we made it home. We stopped at Walmart and got a high chair for the boy. The outlets were so crazy you couldn't even park - so Jonny just ran in to get a hat - and I double parked. It was horrid. I hated every minute of that place and I was only in the parking lot. It just looked like hell. Anywho - Walmart and home! There was hardly any wait at the border. (We paid our dues on the way down!) We got home, unpacked, I washed the car, and then we tried to go for sushi but the boy wasn't going to sit. So, we got some salad rolls and got home and crashed! DONE! Home sweet home. Although Jonny doesn't like home at all anymore. He loves LA. I didn't like LA traffic and I like home. It is easy to be home when you know you have two more exciting adventures coming up! 

Another squirm stop. 

And skate stop. 




High chair in the stroller?? 
Baby in the shopping cart? 
New clothes! (For the boy) 

Family resemblance. 



Car clean and back in its spot. Home sweet home. 
I don't think she is going to make it. We miss Ian to water the plants!! 
First night back in his own bed!! So good for everyone!! 
Skate spot? For next time.. good place to stop. 
The end! Teee he he he!

JAX Beach Summer School 2018

Our summer adventure began by leaving Frank Hurt a week early, the same time as the students. We drove to Bellingham and stayed at the hotel by the Slo Pitch. We had snacks and went swimming. Step one: Get through the border was done. The next mission was to make it through the Seattle traffic. We also stopped off at Bellis Fair and got a new hat for Big Boy as he left his in grandma's basement before we left. 

 In Seattle we stayed by the airport and found Angle Lake. It has a beach, BBQ spots, a play park, and a water park... and washrooms. I didn't have my suit on this time, because we thought it was just a water park, but next time, I am jumping in. Big Boy didn't want to go in without me.














End of Summer Adventures aka: Running Away from Project "FIX THE PATIO"

Bellingham  Well, this sucks... they are jack hammering outside our patio door. We better run away. Where can we go? Let's go to Bellingham and then back to Seattle and go swim in that lake again. 




Seattle  It was super hot the day we got to Seattle... we decided to wait to go to the lake until the next day... and it started raining?! One day we will spend the day at the lake and make a bbq. We did the second best thing and took the train to the city. Christian loves the train. 







Whistler  We came home and got a nice bamboo fence to block out the views, bring us some shade, and give us some security.



But.. the drilling continued on Monday... and got closer! Off to Whistler.

We watched the weather forecast closely to make sure we would have some nice days in Seaside. We had until Friday to cancel. The weather looked good until the day we left so we went for it. The morning we woke up to leave (Tuesday), the weather app changed and gave us two bad days. Too late now! Off we went to Seaside. Carrie was already on her way but we did get an earlier start that I thought we would. We left at 7am. Here is the boy before we left - sad faced and with Bear. 
The City Center Motel. We were in unit 1 beside the pool. This was a great unit for us. Number 6 on the other side of the pool looks nice too. I thought we were going to miss having the little cottage one - but this was much nicer because the boy could have his bath.
Tuesday, we arrived and headed straight to the beach to play. We did wave jumping, beach bowling, and we made some roads and tunnels. Christian found a buddy his age and they had a great time chasing each other and playing.




Carrie found us! She …
