we made it…

We stayed in Ventura last night, it seems bit rough there – bunch of home boys chilling drinking 40’s down the pier.

Stopped by the WeSC store on the way home – got hooked up once again!

It was such a great trip, Gabriel was good driving partner -It was bit easier than last year when he was 2 1/2 🙂

Ventura, the view from our room

welcome to southern california

Gabriel wouldn’t leave his stick alone that he found in Big Sur, funny to come to this scene- There is some hollywood star lunch place across the street, everyone looks all fancy with paparazzi’s around and we show up
with sticks. i like it.

Thanks WeSC

Big sur

We had an amazing drive through Big Sur. We stopped at Monerey to get some camping food and spend a few hours there, such cool town. We had little cabin booked in big sur in the redwood forest.

Happiest cows on the planet

Camping dinner – Gabriel had a spinach salad for dinner last 2 nights, what a freaky 3 year old… good for him though!

This was in our back yard from our camp site

day 2

We had a chill morning in Portland – and drove about 6 hours to Redding. Wanted to drive to S.F, but Gabriel wasn’t too stoked on the idea to drive another 3 hours, fair enough.

Road trip

We fly to Seattle to today with Gabriel, picked up my truck and drove down to Portland. Spent the day with Wille, Had an epic cup of coffee at his coffee shop in Burnside. Chilled at his house and had a little picnic, Curtes family came over to say hi. Great first day on the road.

most of the bridges are these metal construction in washington and oregon, they look so cool!

Portland scene is cool, some colorful houses here and there

Gabriel spend 2 hours running around in the back yard after sitting in the plane and car all day – he was stoked

If you are ever in Portland, check out Wille’s coffee shop at 2211 E. Burnside

Veggie garden

The blog is going to chance a channel, so if you want to see my veggies to grow, tune in other wise you may have to wait until next winter for any legit up dates 🙂

I just put these boxes together today and started planting some veggies, hopefully they will survive.
