Oregon part one: ROAD TRIP!

It's officially summer! We kicked June off with a trip to Oregon to photograph a wedding. It was just Dave and I. We literally left our boys at 5 am with fevers and pink eye, I sat on the edge of the bed in tears, Jared looked at me through his good eye and quietly whispered, "Mom...just go.." It's funny sometimes how children can be so much stronger than adults in difficult situations. I didn't really know what to do, I was so grateful to have my awesome neighbors standing by to help out with the boys, Dave's mom couldn't take them since they were sick, she already had 4 other grandchildren to watch. We left and said a little prayer for our babies and began our long drive northwest. Later that morning I reluctantly called my Mom and told her the situation with the boys, she didn't even hesitate, she came right over and took over for Dave's little sister Kimber(who also dropped everything to come stay with our sick children!). She really took so much worry off my shoulders. She stayed for 3 nights, often getting up during the night to take care of fevers and a hallucinating Ashton. She did not complain once, although I'm positive that it was a huge sacrifice for her. Thank you Mom, you have no idea what a relief it was to have you there!
So here are some pix from our trip there..all I have is a portrait lens so I wasn't super thrilled about taking travel pictures...I took a TON at the beach and whatnot so I will post those later!

Ok seriously, we are so lost without our wonderful GPS...It's sad really..

I was so tempted to spray paint "of the" between King and Hill but Dave informed me that it might be some kind of I didn't. 

Somewhere in Idaho we stopped at a Denny's..Dave ate a big old' breakfast,
I just enjoyed "this glass of water..mmm..I'm stuffed."

I took more pictures at Denny's than I did the entire trip there. 

"It feels good to mingle with these laid back country folk, doesn't it Harry?"
Took this outside of Denny's.
Multnomah Falls Oregon..
Come back for more later!! I'm getting all caught up!!
