Portland Road Trip: Part 3

We made it to Oregon the next day and stopped in Eugene. We got to listen to some live music at their Saturday Market, got our nails painted, and of course, played at a park while Mommy and Daddy got boba. That was our last stop before finally making it to Portland!

Portland Road Trip: Part 2

The next day, we went on a short hike to a beautiful waterfall called Burney Falls! It was probably the best we’ve ever seen, and it was a very short hike too. We had lots of time so we went back toward our hotel in Burney, had a yummy lunch with lots of fried food, and then went bowling!

We started our first hike to Burney Falls doing funny things!

Portland Road Trip: Part 1

As soon as we got out of the last day of school, we went on a road trip to Portland! Since we are not good at long car rides, Mommy and Daddy decided to drive only a little bit each day, so it took us 4 days to get there! We stopped at a lot of places, slept a lot in the car, listened to two whole Harry Potter books, and ate sooooo many snacks.

We slept a lot in the car. We got to the hotel at 11pm and went right back to sleep!

Our first stop was Lassen Volcanic National Park. It's the worst park ever. There is no playground and it stinks. Here is Kayli with some cool bubbling water, but not happy because it is stinky water.

Leia’s belated birthday

Leia had a pound cake for her birthday, which is also the only cake that Kayli likes!

Ski Trip Part 2!

We had a lot of fun on the second day and got way better at skiing! We even got to go on the slope with jumps and tricks, and were pretty good at skiing around them. It was so hot, we don’t know how the snow didn’t all melt. We didn’t wear any jackets or goggles, and sunburned our faces and eyes. Can’t wait to go back!

Ski Trip Part 1!

This spring break, we went skiing at Lake Tahoe! Actually it was a mountain near Truckee. We never saw Lake Tahoe. We tried to go last year but Kayli got Coronavirus so we had to cancel everything. This year though, we took a nice drive to Tahoe with a super fun stop in Sacramento. We ate tons of snacks and ordered lots of mac and cheese that we did not eat. We learned to ski and we are so good! Leia fell off the ski lift once but went right back on and even learned to jump! Mommy and Daddy are so happy that we love this super expensive sport!

We started out with a long car ride. After lots of crying because Leia forgot her pink blanket at home, lots of iPad watching cheered her up!

San Diego!

Over Christmas break, we had to use up some Southwest credit so we flew to San Diego! Daddy was stressed because of Coronavirus. We were not stressed. We just wanted to go to new parks! And we did… a lot of them! We also went to the zoo, got Tea Station, walked over cool bridges, ate tons of snacks, ate pizza, ate in the hotel, and ate tons of snacks!

Santa Cruz Part 2

Other than beaches, we also went to this funny place called the Mystery Spot. It is a mystery because everything is crooked and we get dizzy and can’t walk straight. And Mommy got really sick! We also went to a Redwood forest with HUUUGE trees. A lot of the trees had big holes on the side that we could walk through, and one of them we could go inside!

We look ok here, but Mommy is about to puke!

Santa Cruz Part 1

This year we were planning to go to Hawaii during Kayli’s fall break, but cancelled because of dumb coronavirus. But instead, we went to Santa Cruz for two days! First was a stop at Gilroy Gardens at night where they had super cool Halloween decorations! Then lots of beaches, snacks, and junk food. Lots of french fries. We love vacation! Except the driving part.
