We absolutely LOVED the Oregon coast. We drove all the way from the bottom to top and can’t wait to go back. It is on our “DO AGAIN” list for next year. You’ll notice that Tyler is missing in all these pictures. He was at EFY and BYU Ballroom Dance Camp in Utah while we were on the coast.

The Redwoods:

I know… it’s not REALLY the Oregon coast, BUT we drove through here on our way to the coast so it counts as this part of the trip.

Shady, wooded and cool campsites (South Jetty TT)


South Jetty is only 2 miles from the beach dunes. Brady and Carter had a great time with the RZR at the dunes.

Blowing up the Black Tank:

In case you needed a reason as to why you don’t talk on the phone while hooking up the RV…. Brady took a call while working on set up. He got everything hooked up and I decided we should walk to the beach. We were gone about 30 minutes and when we headed up the hill to our spot we noticed there was water EVERYWHERE!!! Someone screwed up somewhere… then we turned the corner and saw that is was our RV, spewing water down the road. While distracted by his business call, Brady had accidentally hooked the city water hose to the “black tank flush,” it filled the tank and leaked out of the tank and then filled the underbelly with water (and other mess.) TOTALLY GROSS!!!

Catching up with friends

The kids met “T” when we were in Yuma. We were excited to hear her family was on the Oregon coast and we stopped by their RV park for a couple days so the kids could catch up. IMG_2518

And Bee Stings:

Carter was stung by bees 2 days in a row… first on his forehead and then on his toe. He spent the second day with his foot elevated, playing with his legos.
