End of the Road: San Fran

After our recent trip to Oregon & Washington, we drove on down to finish our vacation in San Francisco.  I always love this place, & we try to make it out there about once a year.  Usually though it's to run a race in the city with friends.  The kids usually stay back with my folks.  So it was fun to show them why we love the city.

Washington State

I'm splitting up our road trip vacation into segments because there was so much we did & saw.  After being in beautiful Oregon for several days, we continued onto Olympia, WA.  This is where 2 of my husband's sisters & families call home.

Oregon Part One

Our big road trip of the Summer is over already...sigh...

It was lovely though.  We saw a couple states.  A lot of hours in the car at times, but I like road trips, & seeing all the little small towns blurring by out my car window.

Our first destination was our good friend's house in Wilsonville(not too far from Portland).  I hadn't seen my friend since their family moved up to Oregon last Summer, & I miss that girl/lady(whatever you call people our age).  So good to see them, & see what their life is like in their new place.

 It's so pretty up there, have I mentioned I love trees?  Probably a few times :)

So that was the first leg of our trip.  I have tons of pictures, so I will put up our next part of the trip(Washington) in another post.
