Our Trip to the Redwoods

We had an awesome trip.  We stayed in a little studio apartment right on the beach in Crescent City for two nights.  While there we walked along the beach in the dark rain, checked out tidepools, explored the Redwoods, visited a lighthouse, and ate some yummy seafood.  The next two days we stayed in a very interesting Victorian cottage in Ferndale where we hiked up Fern Canyon, watched some Elk by the beach, visited art and historical museums, bought 2 bonsai plants and the most delicious grape tomatoes at a farmer's market, and tried not to break family heirlooms in the house where we stayed.  The ride home was very long, but it was totally worth it.  We love adventuring together.  

All better, we're out of here!

Sister is officially 100% recovered.  Maybe that's why I haven't written in so long.  She's much harder to keep up with when she is mobile :).  We still don't know exactly what that was all about, we are just so thankful that she is okay.  A huge thanks to all of you who have been praying for us and worrying about us.  

So, now that life is somewhat returned to normal, we realized that the summer is nearly over and we haven't had a vacation with our little family.  So, we're taking off on a little last minute getaway next week to northern California.  The things we are hoping to do the most are: hike in the Redwoods, explore tide pools, maybe see some whales or sea lions, visit a lighthouse, see some cool art, and eat some yummy food.  We haven't ever done anything with just the four of us, so we are excited to spend some time together in a place we've always wanted to see.  The timing isn't perfect, and funds will be a little tight, but we decided we've got to just go and make it happen or it never will.

Now, we've just got to get everything ready. We can't wait!
