Please be advised that you are about to be inundated with a deluge of pictures. We spent the past 10 days travelling between the Oregon Coast and Canada on our first family roadtrip and I was determined to photo-document the entire adventure. I really have tried to be selective about the pictures I posted but there are just too many that I couldn't help it.
Despite the fact that I posted a million pictures, it is impossible to capture the memories that we created on our roadtrip on film. The time we spent together as a family was truly precious. The things that I don't have pictures of, are what are most meaningful and memorable to me: the songs we sang together in the car, splashing in the pool at the hotel each night, Hank riding in the luggage cart at the hotel, Aaron and I fighting over the music decibels in the car, waking up together each morning, and on and on. Our roadtrip was a different kind of vacation. It wasn't the kind of vacation Aaron and I are accustomed to where we relax all day and spend our leisure time pursuing our own hobbies. We learned that vacations with kids are different but even more special. Our joy was in watching Hank laugh and play. It was so worth it!
