Back from Vacation

It's been awhile since I have posted.  We just returned from a family vacation!  We had such a GREAT time!  I took SO many photos!!  We started our trip on the Oregon coast.  Went down hwy 101 and made lots of fun stops.   The Beach, Devils churn lookout, Sea Lion Caves, Heceta head lighthouse.
Next, we went through the California Redwoods.  BEAUTIFUL drive!!  We stopped at the Battery lighthouse, went to the Tree's of Mystery, Rode the Sky Trail which was so Awesome!! Drove through the Avenue of the trees and drove our car through the Chandelier tree. 

From there we drove into San Franscisco.  This was the first time for the kids.  Drove over the Golden Gate Bridge,  had fun at Fishermans Warf,  Rode the cable cars and drove down America's crookedest street!  Also, got a chance to visit my old College roomate!! (=

Now we headed to Six Flags Great America!! This was probally the funnest for the kids!!  We had so much fun!!   We rode LOTS of rides and fun Roller Coasters and just had a BLAST!!!

Yes, there is more... (=  On our way back we stopped at a Water Park!!  Again,  the kids LOVED this!!!

And Finally on our return to Oregon we visited Wildlife Safari.  So glad we did it.  It was amazing how the animals just came right up to the car!  We had a giraffe standing right next to us! So COOL!!  Also the kids got a chance to ride a Camel. 

We had a FABULOUS vacation!!! The kids were SOOOOO good!  Even the car ride was fun!! Just hanging out together - playing games, singing songs...  Can't wait for our next rode trip whatever that may be!!!
