Searching for Fall....





We decided to leave "much to warm California" and search
 for some crisp Fall weather.  




So we packed our bags, joined this sweet family, 
 and we were on our way to Oregon!!!



This was more like what Fall should look like. 



Our littlest traveller seemed to enjoy the hotel life....





....and big sister managed the change in the weather quite well!!!




There were fun places to visit....






... and lovely Fall walks thru the city of Portland.




We discovered lovely forests....




....with blazing colored trees. 




Thanks to my sweet kids for making this "birthday" trip possible.  
It was memorable in every way. 




I will never forget the incredible sights...




... and the sweet times we shared.  




Much to quickly it was time to head back home.  




Our bittiest traveller asked when we can do it again.

I say ANYTIME....and I say sooner is a great plan !!!!

SO adorable! Those sweet girlies are the BEST travelers. I love the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse in the background of Laurel's picture. How fun! Can't wait to see more pictures. XO

What a fun trip indeed! The time in Portland went far too quickly and the only good thing about it being over is that it forced us to stop finding good food to eat and eat and eat. :)

What a cute pictures of your grandkids Annelies. I recognize that falls are they Multnomah at Columbia river? Looks like you had a great time in beautiful Oregon! I spoke to your boss Eleonor Burns today. What a kind lady she is!

Now that looks like a fun family trip. Beautiful country. I spent a summer in Portland after HS. You and your family all have the most beautiful smiles. Even the new little one.

ohhh, we could've just swapped places if you felt you wanted cold weather, and Cali was just too hot ;)

Happy you had fun! Looks wonderful. Thank you for the lovely presents I got!
