My birthday gift from Tara

We left early Wednesday morning and started our road trip down into Oregon. Our destination was the KOA campground in Astoria and we also wanted to explore Seaside and Cannon beach.
Our trip down involved a couple of random stops. One to a walmart where we got some much needed supplies like a lantern and speakers for our ipods.
Once we arrived at the camp ground we quickly checked in and set up camp then headed out to seaside to do some exploring. The sun was just starting to peak out as we arrived on Seaside and it was just beautiful. We wondered in and out of all the stores.This is us waiting for our deep fried snickers that we decided to try out by sharing oneDeep Fried Snickers!!Candy store where we got way too much candyOn the beach the first day

We played Skee Ball at the arcade

On Cannon beach after we went body surfing for over an hour. it was so amazing. i don't think i have ever actually swan in the Ocean. it was so much fun i could have done it all day long! After body surfing we changed into dry clothes and then headed to Mo's where we had lunch. I got the tuna melt and Tara got a bacon cheese burger then we split them to share. we both agreed the tuna melt was better ( seafood b/c we were at the ocean)

Our drive home was also quit an adventure. We stopped where ever we wanted which included a Ross, a drive down a long road in search of the Eagle sanctuary that we never found, a small park that had a naked baby and the parents smoking weed and drinking, a toll ferry that was more like a floating barge that we had no idea where it was taking us, and a stop at a camp ground thathad an amazing view of the Columbia river.

Over all the trip was amazing and we hating coming back home. I most defiantly want to make this a yearly trip if possible
