Last week, we drove up north to Oregon to watch a college football game. Its not just any game, its Washington State Uni. Cougars against Oregon State Uni. Beavers. Go Cougs!

We left on Friday, which was on my birthday. 🙂 img_8013

And we decided to take the coastal route, I101 which was so beautiful. It took a little longer than the route we usually take up to Oregon but so much beautiful and scenic. 


oh so much caffeine, I’ve never drank this much caffeine in one day, but it was kinda fun! 🙂


We stopped at Bandon, Oregon for late lunch/early dinner. Fish and chips for the win. img_8079 img_8080


we did not get to our hotel until 8. and not til 9 to eat birthday cake which is pretty late for our family normal birthday cake eating celebration. 🙂

next day, we went downtown Albany, Oregon for a warm-up trick or treating.



only these two got to swim at the hotel pool.


And the game was not until 7:45 pm.

and didn’t last til just after midnight. it was so much fun, Ava took a lil nap toward the end in the middle of the loud crowd.  img_8118

The next day was rainy and we started driving back. They played with their candies in the car which kind of save the day (long car ride).


It was a short get away but its always good to break the usual routine and change the view. 🙂 I at least felt so refreshed, the Albany/Corvallis town in Oregon are two beautiful little towns. We drove back thru little farm towns, green beautiful landscape, kinda got me thinking about the olden days. Peaceful and Simple Life!


Until next time!


We are already planning on our Thanksgiving break roadtrip. 🙂
