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!!
