Our Last Stop – Yachats, OR

From Astoria we headed south to the Cape Perpetua area of the Oregon Coast. We made a pit stop at the Tillamook Cheese Factory to see what we could see. The place was packed with fellow cheese enthusiasts and it was a zoo in there! It was cool to see all the machinery where they…

Family Bonding Time! – Billings, MT

We drove across the border of South Dakota (and into Wyoming just briefly) as we made our way to Billings, Montana. Chris’s parents and his sister Allie were flying in to the airport in Billings to come stay with us for awhile. And two days after they flew in, Chris’s nephew, Caleb, (our nephew, but…
