We've just returned from a ten day road trip around Oregon.
Dave planned the whole thing, back while we were still living in Kuwait.
I remember when he showed me all the stops he had planned, and how excited he was.
"We've shown the kids so much of the rest of the world, time to show them how beautiful our home is!"
He was so right, Oregon is just stunningly gorgeous.
Ten days was a bit ambitious though ;).
Six stops, four of those were camping.
Luckily, because Jesus loves us, He ordained it that David's parents were actually camping at the same spot as our last stop during the same time we were going to be there...it was SO FUN to get to spend time with them camping and SO GREAT to be able to have them absorb some of the twin-seven-year-olds-on-a-ten-day-roadtrip-madness =).
We made some great memories, and soaked up all the beautiful summer colors (the greens! the blues!) and I'm so glad we went.
It was worth ALL the laundry I'm still climbing out from underneath.
My hope is to finishing blogging about our Europe travels, and then blog about our Oregon trip. I intend to print Kuwaitforit in book form so our family can always look back on our time in the Middle East, and honestly traveling around back home and trying to re-orient ourselves is part of that.
But first, the laundry.
