Just Sayin'

It was crazy hot this last week.  We got the hottest days of the summer last week.  My husband loved it, but me?  Not as much as him.

Here's how we got outside.


Last weekend we ended up going to Portland, OR for two days to visit my sister-in-law.  On Sunday they had an awesome market going on.  We ended up hanging out around there for a few hours and exploring the city.  I love Portland!  Even though it was 90+ both days we were there.

We did walk by Voodoo doughnuts when we were at the market, but the line was insane.  So we decided to head on over there later in the evening.  SO GOOD!

 Our "candid" shots.  Very cute.

Best. doughnuts. I've ever. tasted.  Mine are the coconut one (bottom) and Old Dirty Bastard - oreos & P.B. (very top)
I can't believe I've never had a Voodoo doughnut.

After going to Portland we decided to camp out for a night at Cape Disappointment on the Washington coast.  It was actually surprisingly chilly!
The clouds were pretty low most of the day (although once late afternoon/evening came, we got some nice clear skies) AND it was pretty windy AND it was around 58 most of the day.  Not so warm. 

The jetty was very awesome.

Our tent all set up and my monkey husband.

Buried redneck.  Or at least that's the story we made up.

 Why these gross pictures? Well, guess who left marshmallows in the cooler? Me. 
Did you know that marshmallows are pretty gross when they get a little moisture on them?

We did have fun though.  BBQ'd hot dogs, explored the beach, checked out the nearby lighthouse, and even went out on the beach for some meteor shower watching.

We watched the sunset from an awesome shelter!

Our crazy selves.  Apparently, I can't jump.

It was a pretty successful weekend.
