An Anniversary Travel Log

Today is our Wedding Anniversary!!
We have been married for 15 Years!!
To Celebrate, we escaped to the Beautiful, but very chilling, Coast of Oregon!!

We arrived in Portland on Wednesday. Our flight left Utah at 12:45 and returned to UTAH at 1:45. After putting us all on a new plane with a de-icer that worked... we made it to Portland around 5:30 pm. We rented a car and traveled to Newport City. 3 hours later, we made it to our beautiful beach front condo.
It was heavenly.

As we drove out of our driveway - this was our view.

We drove around the town and saw beautiful lighthouses, beaches, quaint shopping areas, and LOVED the little store on the corner... (we HAD to take a picture)...

Thursday Morning we went to the Marine Aquarium.
It was a cold and rainy day so we enjoyed staying inside and being warm.

Across the street we visited Pirate's Plunder - basically a street of shops filled with nick-nacks.
It RAINED buckets!!

We ate Lunch at the Chowder Bowl. I reluctantly joined Aaron on a very cold beach in Newport.

Friday we got up early to go to the Yaquina Bay Lighthouse.
The view was amazing. We hiked down to the water to see the marine life.
It was one of my favorite spots.

We traveled into Depoe Bay.
We boarded a boat to Whale Watch. I think this was Aaron's favorite. He loves to be on the water...even when it is choppy... :(

Saturday we did some shopping in Lincoln City
and then headed to the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum.
This museum houses Hughes Flying Boat, the Spruce Goose. It is HUGE!!!

And Sunday we traveled home - back to reality... Thank you, Ashley for keeping our kids. They had as much fun as we did.

Aaron has been my best friend
for more than 15 years.

He has been by my side through
Good and Bad,
Sickness and Health,
Thick (happens to the best of us) and Thin,
and three added kids ;0).

I can't wait to see
what the next 15 years will bring.

He is my favorite!!
He is PERFECT for me!
I am the lucky one.

Happy Anniversary, Honey!!

Love is a seesaw.
Love does not stay the same,
but is always the most important endeavor of your life.

One of you is weak where the other is strong.
Each waits upon the other while progressing towards perfection.

Happy Anniversary. I love the Oregon coast, cold or sort of cold. Looks like such a beautiful spot.

We love the Oregon coast. Usually it is fun to go up there and escape the heat of Utah summer but lately we've had Oregon weather here. You look so cute and tan.
