On our way to Astoria

Finally some photos from our fun Astoria trip!

We left Friday afternoon (2 Fridays ago) and made our way down Highway 26.  A little someone who has recently potty-trained needed to use the facilities on the way, and our good fortune! we were near one of my favorite parks.  I walked around with the 4 other kids while Marcus hauled out the tiny plastic potty and helped his little girl relieve herself.
This is the stump of North America's (former)
largest Sitka spruce tree.
It didn't look that impressive until the kids
got closer and you could really see how
wide the trunk was!
It damaged in the big wind storm a few years
ago, and for safety it was cut down.

This guy looks like a dinosaur!!
Gemma joined us soon enough.
A different tree--so cool!

So we made our way to the coast with a fun experience already!!
