Family vacation

Powells Bookstore a must for every trip to Portland.

One of my favorite vacation photos of Katherine. We are in Cambria, CA (northern) at sunset.

We were very fortunate to escape the AZ heat for a nice vacation. We traveled around Northern CA starting in Cambria touring the Hearst Castle.

Next we went to Monterey for a few days.

We drove the beautiful 17 mile drive through Pebble Beach. I highly recommend it if you are ever there!

We visited many small beaches around Carmel and Monterey. Josh just loves the ocean!

We sadly left Monterey to drive to San Ramon but made a quick stop at Stanford, Katherine wanted to visit and take a tour.

Next stop San Ramon to visit Kevin’s brother Craig and the “boy cousins”. We planned to drive into San Francisco but the BART was on strike and we did not want to get stuck in traffic.

Next it was on to Portland and across the bridge to Camas, WA to visit my brother 1 last time before they move to San Diego.

Toes!

We normally spend 2 wks in this part of the Pacific Northwest but this time only had 3 days so we really packed it in. There was a local race in Hillsboro, OR and my brother in-law Kyle wanted us to all go. I am not in any type of racing shape but Josh and I decided to just have fun with the 5k. Every trip to Portland must include a stop and large purchase at Powell’s Bookstore.

The fireworks at my brothers house are unbelieveable! We can see several shows from the cities nearby and all the neighbors go crazy.

We had a great time visiting new places and seeing family. It is always hard to come home to hot AZ after a trip to the cool weather. I was able to get a little running in but mainly let a few injuries get nursed during the trip.
