More Vacation Shots!

The Sea Lion Caves were a hit...

...but they stink!!!

Did I tell you the Sea Lion Caves stink?

The next highlight was the Trees of Mystery, the Giant Redwoods of Northern California!

What an amazing experience!

Then off to the Oregon Caves!

Last stop before heading back towards home was Rouge River! The jet boat river trip was a blast! We all started out very hot in the 90 degree + weather, but by the end we were all cooler and loving it!

All in all it was a fabulous and much needed vacation for all of us! We relaxed and talked and just enjoyed each other so much. We definately missed the three older kids that all have full time jobs, but life changes and we are grateful that we had this opportunity.

What a fun vacation! Glad that you had some time away for bonding and making lasting memories. I loved all the photos. My favorites were daddy and Mesaret and your beautiful international family by the tree for the nations.
May God bless your beautiful family.
Love and hugs and prayers,

That looks like so much fun. And there are some new haircuts too! :-)

I enjoy in the photos how you can see the love your kids have for each other. So precious.
