Oregon Coast with My Family

Last summer my sister and I had had enough of hot Phoenix and hot DC and were dreaming of a vacation somewhere cool. Not hip or happening, but cool as in chilly. So we decided to stay for a week this summer on the Oregon Coast. And we weren’t disappointed. It only got up to about 70 degrees at the hottest. most of the time it was in the low 60s. It was heaven.  I am not sure my parent’s agreed. The little cutie is my youngest niece who entertained us all week.

My sister, my brother-in-law, and my niece.

Like the Queen, one is not to photograph Kaylee when she is eating.

    Thomas I so enjoyed all these photos – how wonderful! The Oregon coast looks breathtakingly beautiful – I must try and get there. And your niece is such a darling! You can tell she loves her Uncle Tom very much! Thank you for this snapshot into your holiday – I loved seeing you and your family having fun!

    What a lovely family you have.

    I love the Oregon coast. It's been awhile since we visited but I remember it being quite nice.

    You look a lot like your mom :)

    Mary: Thanks Mary, I am glad you enjoyed them.

    Rachel: The Pacific Coast in general is pretty spectacular and Oregon has more than its fair share of amazing beaches and views.

    Ti: Perfect place for a family trip. Not too late to plan next year's vacation…

    dpv: My pleasure.

    AnswerGirl: John's likeness is largely absent from My Porch by his choice.
