On the Road Again...

Kylie and I went for a long needed trip to Washington a few weeks ago and also had the chance to spend a few days in Oregon with Ryan, Kristin and the family. We decided on a Sunday night around 6:45 that we were going to leave... that night. I was frantically trying to get everything together so that we could drive to Ogden and sleep there before the LONG drive the next day. Anyway, to make a long story short, we spent 12.5 hours in the car on Monday and then turned around on Tuesday and drove about 8 hours to Redmond Oregon with my mom. Way too much driving for 48 hours. To my great amazement, Kylie did absolutely wonderful in the car. She would just sit in her carseat and play with her toys or even just sit there. She was only cranky for maybe 2 or 3 hours total... for the entire drive.

Drivin, drivin, drivin...


In Oregon, we just got to hang out with my brother and his family. They recently had a new baby and it was so much fun to get to see them! They have a great family! Kylie loved sitting on the table watching all the kids run around her and play peek-a-boo with her. =) She loved being around the kids!! And, luckily, she even slept really well on the whole trip too. =)

We saw some cool things on the drive to Oregon. There was a MASSIVE tree farm along the side of the freeway. I think it was around 8 miles or so just of trees that all were exactly the same but there were different sections that were different sizes. I know it sounds kinda lame, but it was actually kinda cool to see. =)



In Washington, we were able to go to the Greenbluff Apple Festival. Always something that I miss while living in Utah. Kylie got to suck on an apple and was loving it! She also got to play with a ton of pumpkins. Yes, most of them were much bigger than her. =) She is just small. =) It was so much fun to get to go with my mom and dad. I so SO wish Dave could have come with us... dang school!! =( Next time... =)
