So I put on my big girl panties and took Landyn on her first vacation. A vacation that will include a total of 25 hours of drive time. I totally went out on a limb here, I know. I’m still in shock.
Josh’s mom has a house up in Redmond Oregon, so we are spending the week amongst the fresh mountain air. We’ve been here 3 days, and I’ve already learned the following:
I am the worst over packer in history, yet still managed to forget necessities.
Waiting until the last minute never turns out well and you settle without Sorel snow boots because the ones you just got are too big and no one has them in stock.
Traveling with kids requires a vacation from your vacation. It’s no joke.
The term “California girl” is real and Landyn lives it. The kid thinks sweatshirts are jackets, shoes without socks is acceptable in 20 degree weather, and there is such thing as “warm bathing suits”. She’s got so much to learn.
Part 1 of our Oregon adventure…
My little marshmallow snow bunny.
Oregon is non stop scenic beauty.
Mt. Bachelor, Oregon.
The first time Josh and Landyn met last winter, we took a day trip to the snow where he surprised Landyn with her own personalized sled. This little red sled is a little sentimental to me.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a little reflection on 2013. Happy new years from Oregon.
