We went to Oregon...

I've totally lagged on this post because of the sheer quantity of photos I had to go through.  We were in Oregon the first weekend of November and as always, had an AMAZING time! We are so blessed to have such an awesome family who is always about a good time! Here is our trip in photos, just a few (wink)!
Straight of the plane we headed to lunch and an afternoon of drinking. We stayed at this bar (I enjoyed it so much I don't remember the name) all afternoon telling stories, laughing and taking shots of Pendlenton (when in Rome). We were so happy to be back in our favorite town, with our favorite people!

The next morning Brad, Tonie and I got an early start and headed to the coast.

It was so BEAUTIFUL! 

We rented a lodge right on the lake. We got a fire going before the rest of the family came. We spent the rest of the night partying, dancing in the rain (love you Rene), and playing cards.

The Dunlap Lodge was awesome. The best part was that our deck was right over the lake. Such a beautiful view.

The Family at the lighthouse. I love this picture of all of us. It was a cold drizzly day.  After a big pancake breakfast, we headed to check out the Yaquina Head Lighthouse, Oregon's tallest lighthouse

114 steps to the top, we made it, breathlessly. 

After all those stairs we needed a beer. We dropped the kids off at the warf and headed to the Rogue Brewery for lunch.

Walking around Newport. 

Back at the lodge to dry off and warm up.  We had pizza and spent our last night playing games and relaxing.

Thank you for the good times. Can't wait to come back soon!

After a fun filled weekend at the coast we came home to a cozy fire and a delicious homemade dinner. Ceder salmon by Kev. It was out of this world! We finished the night with milk and fresh baked cookies, and a good game of dice.  

We had lunch with Brad's Dad at this cute cafe. It was a beautiful fall day in Portland.

My beautiful sister! She's the best!

Podnah's Pit, resturant of the year, according to The Willamette Week. Of course we had to try it. Yep, it was that good!

Our last day in Portland. It always goes by so quick! We had to eat lunch at Brad's favorite pub, The Highland Stillhouse. According to Brad, if we lived in Oregon City he would go there everyday. Thank God we don't. The food is delicious and they know how to pour a Guinness. 

One last stop before the airport, The Edgefield. We got engaged and married here. Part of my heart always stays here, so it's always good to stop by for lunch, or a drink. The grounds are beautiful and Brad always has to replenish his stock of Hogshead Whiskey 

Half of our hearts are always in Portland. I love that we have such a cool place to go to several times a year  to visit family and make amazing memories. So until next time Portland...
