Our Move West2:09 PM
We are finally here in Portland, Oregon! We have actually been here for two weeks. Before that we were on the road for eight days, driving across the country. It definitely wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but it definitely had it's moments of hell on wheels! The kids were really good and we saw places that these photos don't do any justice. We mostly stayed in hotels, which was a big help with keeping the kids, and grown-ups, sane. Once we made it to California we took our time, visited with friends, and camped for a night next to the Pacific Ocean. We are happy to be in our new home and out of the car!
Here are some photos from our trip across the great USA. Enjoy!

|How you keep Ellie in one place, a luggage rack.|
|She climbs on everything.|
|It was flat and kind of boring, but still pretty.|
|This fog was crazy!|
|Couldn't ask for a better view from our hotel window in Utah.|
|I cannot wait to paint clouds again. These will help inspire for sure.|
|The salt flats were absolutely amazing! No photo filters needed on these photos, this is exactly what it looked like.|
|Gorgeous fields and skies along the highway in California.|
|Met with friends in Berkeley. The kids enjoyed being out of the car and playing with their friends.|
|Nat even got to feed a kitten.|
The Redwood Trees are fantastic, or "majestical" as Nat would say ;) If you have to go anywhere, go to Northern California and see these beautiful trees.
|Running on the square in Arcata, CA.|
|Camping. Worst. Night. Sleep. EVAR! We didn't|
