Summer Vacation

We spent our Summer Vacation in Canmore, Canada near the Banff National Park. We had a great time hiking, swimming and building sand castles at the quarry, biking, and relaxing. Scott even played a round of golf and didn't break any windows. We also saw a grizzly bear on the drive up to Lake Louise - fortunately, we were in the car driving 30 mph. Whew!

Summer in Salem

Michelle, Carolyn, Natalie and Scott were in Salem, OR for the summer. We had a great time! Natalie loved the carousel by the river front park, and Carolyn was a great big sister! Natalie tried her first calamari - which she loved - but she thought it was a snail since the logo for the restaurant in Portland was a snail shell. Wish Summer wasn't over! Here's the link to the full gallery:

San Francisco 2009

We just finished a great week in San Francisco. We enjoyed dinner in North Beach, the view from Twin Peaks, the new California Science Center in Golden Gate Park, and we couldn't leave town without a HUGE Chocolate Sundae at Ghirardelli's. Scott had to work at Intersolar during the days. Carolyn picked up a great new Coach purse. We even ran into the San Francisco Twins at dinner one night. Check out the background in Picture 13 on Flickr! And, of course, Natalie loved riding the outdoor elevator to the top floor at the St. Francis. Here's the link to the whole picture set:

3rd Anniversary Weekend Cannon Beach Oregon

We had the best weekend getaway in Cannon Beach. It was truly gorgeous and a wonderful way to celebrate our 3rd year of marriage. We explored the haystack rocks, saw puffins and built sandcastles. The seafood was delicious. Thank you Scott for the wonderful vacation XOXOX
