Our first family road trip: {Washington or Bust}

Beware, this is a very photo heavy post!

At the end of August we loaded up the Edge and headed North.

We were on an adventure of a lifetime. {ok, maybe not a life time, but our first major roadtrip}

We were headed to the great state of Washington to see my sis, bil and nephew colt {hello cutest baby every!}

We left bright and early on a Wednesday morning!

{the pilot}

{along for the ride}


We went through the Santa Maria wine country. Must come back and do wine tasting asap!

khloe was trying to steal my navigator position!


see me in the mirror, hehe, love this pic

family photo <3

khloe spent A LOT of time sleeping on the drive up


My turn as the pilot

scott as the urrr, umm, the navigator...don't all navigators nap??

we of course had to stop and see the massive red wood trees.
These things are so huge. I cannot even comprehend how ginormous they are!

we were in Humboldt county so, when in tree hugger land you must hug a tree!
 I think I fell in love with just one hug, hehe

beautiful country side

We brought a cooler for food to have lunch and snacks. We knew stopping to get dinner would be  a good idea to get out of car and stretch our legs for more than 5 minutes. We stumbled upon this tiny random "cafe" in a town with literally 5 buildings.

It had some of the most amazing mexican food. {i am a huge critic of mexican food.}

After a bit more driving scott was ready to call it day. We were on the road for a solid 12 hours. We laid our heads down in a random motel in Eureka, CA. Every time i say it i think of Eurekas Castle. Did you watch that show as a kid on Nickelodeon?

at the hotel khloe got caught up on teen mom...this was her frist time staying at a hotel and she was a very good girl.

Day Two:


Day Two was only about a 10 hour day of driving.
We finished up CA, drove through Oregon and made it to our final destination, Silverdale WA!

don't all navigators put their feet up?? love my cute socks from H&M, perfect for ballet flats.


im pretty sure khloe is thinking, are we there yet??

Portland, we stopped on the way back home, so more on that later.

and we finally arrived to see this cute face! how freakin adorable is he???


kisses from the doggie

i'm not sure who is more excited, scott or colt


khloe is probably thinking, hey kid, get off my bed...you don't see me jumping in your crib, hehe

more on our washington adventures later!

Hope you all have a fantastic Monday! Remember, once I get to 100 blog followers I will be doing a giveaway from the shop rellas bellas {only 17 more followers, needed! eeeek!}
