This was the ONLY picture I got of all of us! This was in front of an old house that had been turned into a restaurant. Very cool (and it was supposedly haunted!)
The two little boys, Riley and Logan. They are SO adorable! (and they have great taste in football teams!)
On Saturday, we headed to the coast with Julie and the boys (Dwayne had to work). Our first stop was the beach in Lincoln City. The weather was absolutely amazing! We were expecing cold and windy, but it was warm and sunny with no wind. It was great!
Riley and I had fun running into the water!
Our other coast stop was Depoe Bay. This area was really amazing as well, because there were whales in the bay! There were about 3 or 4 of them, and in this picture, you can see the water spout to the left of us. We tried so hard to get a good picture of the whales but were unsuccessful. But we saw them!
We had dinner at Gracie's in Depoe Bay with Julie's mom. I had salad topped with crab and shrimp. YUM! I love seafood!
Between the two towns, we stopped and watched a glass blower at work. It was really neat!
We left Salem Sunday after lunch and spent a little while in Portland. The changing colors in Oregon were beautiful!
In downtown Portland
We had LOTS of good coffee in Oregon (including Starbucks). This was my favorite (it was an almond joy latte).
This is my favorite espresso ever!
And this was just cute (I had this latte in downtown Portland)
We had a wonderful visit and were so incredibly blessed by our time there. Dwayne and Julie are working with a church plant in Salem and plan to start a new church plant next year. I am so inspired by their hearts for God and their passion for the work they are doing. We had a great time!
