A Trip To Oregon

We recently returned from a trip to Oregon. We spent the first week with my parents in Corvallis, then I left to go to Denver for a work trip and Adria and the boys spent the second week with her parents in Portland.

We had a good trip. Here are some pictures from it.

A day in Newport
We had a fun time at the Oregon Coast Aquarium. Thomas liked looking at the fish a little bit, but he liked to walk around and scuff his feet on the gravel pathways even more.

Thomas didn't want to try out the touch pool, but Adria, and Grandpa and Grandma liked it.

After lunch we were planning on going to the beach, but the boys fell asleep in the car so we visited the Yaquina Head Lighthouse instead. Grandma and Grandpa stayed in the car while Adria and I climbed to the top. It was interesting to learn about the history of lighthouses.

Here is Thomas playing with a toy shark that the waitress at lunch gave him. I named him "Sharky"

The boys also had fun in and around Corvallis. They had fun at the park:

And they had lots of fun playing the old toys at Grandma's house. Thomas spent a lot of time linking the cars together in a string and pulling them around.

Cannon Beach
One day while Adria and the boys were in Portland, Grandpa and Grandma Davis took them to Cannon Beach. They had a good time, although it took Thomas a little bit to decide that he liked the beach. Isaiah seemed to like it from the start.

Here is a slideshow of all the pictures from our trip:


  1. How fun! I miss Oregon and the beach.

  2. Adria-

    Josh and I are seriously considering moving to Alaska. Josh is interested in applying to the state patrol department and eventually transfer to the police department. I just was wondering if I could ask you some questions about the cost of living there. If you could call me some time that would be great. I am home with Ally so any time during the day is great. my number is 801-953-5625. Thanks so much.
