Summer Road Trip, part 1

We had a big trip at the end of June – we drove from Portland, to Coos Bay, to Sacramento, to Los Angeles, to San Diego, visiting loved ones along the way, and then we drove the whole.way.home in three long hot days. It was a great trip – the girls played with so many kids, we reconnected with so many old friends, and we spent fabulous time with so much family. I took oodles of photos, and want to share some here, but didn’t want to completely overwhelm my four and a half readers, so I’ll do a post a day, starting today, and finishing up on Wednesday. Mostly photos.
