My mom flew up and we went to see Cedric being blessed at church in the morning.
We took a few quick pictures in the beautiful yard.
He was not thrilled about the sun in his eyes.
Jonah's curly bed head.
I still can't get over how great Jess looked with a one month-old.
The boys said goodbye to their dog and kitty one last time and we headed out.
We went west so we could go to Tillamook.
We stopped at the Tillamook Cheese Factory and found this cute cow and farmer.
We had a cheesy, delicious lunch.
And drove the baby loaf bus.
We walked through the tour
and tried each of the samples.
Then we tried several new flavors of ice cream.
We discovered some new favorites and hope they carry them in stores near us soon!
The hotel we were thinking of stopping in was booked, as were all other options along the coast. There was some sort of music festival in town.
So, I napped then took over driving for several hours into the night. We pulled over, slept for a few hours, then ate and hit the road again.
We stopped to see one of the Redwood National parks and get some energy out.
We had less energy than anticipated, but found a trail to a cool ceremonial rock.
We climbed to the top
and had a view all the way to the ocean.
Jonah touched the banana slug, but Scott declined.
It was a fast and full weekend. I'm glad we drove through most of the night because it made the trip back easy on the boys. We arrived home in time to unpack and start laundry. We had a great trip, but already miss Cedric and his parents.
