Along the coast

Memorial Day Weekend – Day 4

Because Saturday was such a jam-packed day, Sunday was more low-key. It was my mom’s last full day in Oregon. As such, we decided to go for a short drive up the infamous Oregon Coast. It was a view that I had missed during my last trip.

Aalia was so well-behaved during our jaunt the day before that we decided not to push our luck. We only traveled 30 miles from Florence to Yachats. In that short drive, we were treated to some spectacular vistas. Rather than tell you about them, I’ll just show you.

Our little road trip had a purpose. Khurram wanted to have some lunch at a place that was one of his and Melanie’s favorites. {Are you actually surprised that we went to get something to eat?}

All this deliciousness was shared among 4 adults. Aalia slept peaceful through our an entire meal. {What fantastic manners!} Like the day before, we all lapsed into food comas. It’s a rough life, I know.

  1. She already has a binky aka the NUK! Life without one would have been torture. My son had his until he was FOUR! SHHHHH, Don't tell his dad. He would throw it away and I would buy another one. 🙂

  2. I'm drooling at ALL these shots — the scenic ones and the foodie ones. I am determined to come do the drive along the Oregon and Cali coasts (been talking with my guy about it for months now) and you just convinced me it's a must-do. Looks like a splendid time!
