After Eugene, we moved to Salem Oregon for a month. One Sunday we traveled an hour and went to the beach in Lincoln city. It was such a beautiful day. It was hot, not a cloud in the sky & sunny. We were not prepared & didn't even wear swimsuits because of our last experience at the beach. But, we still had a lot of fun. We ate clam chowder at a restaurant on the beach, played in the sand, and even played in the water. Camden had a blast!

A few sundays ago, we drove the hour and a half drive to the beach. The closest city was Florence so, thats where we headed. It was a rainy, cold & gloomy day but we still went. The waves were huge, the sky was grey & everything was wet. We found sea shells, sand dollars & splashed in the water with our rain boots on. It was a good day & Camden loved running from the waves. Yesterday we went to a different beach on a beautiful sunny day & had a completely different experience. But, I think this trip to Florence was more of the typical Oregon coast weather. The Oregon coast is so pretty!!

A couple of sunday's ago we went to a U of O Ducks baseball game. We had a lot of fun. Camden sat and watched while eating his popcorn and then he was off running around. The baseball field is all fake grass.. even the dirt. The only real dirt on the whole field was the pitching mound. We had a great day & we were glad to kind of see around the campus. The campus is SUPER nice!

Our first week in Eugene was cold, wet & rainy but SO pretty! Eugene is easily one of the most beautiful places we've ever been. Everything is so clean. All the yards are immaculate and covered in flowers. Even though it was cold and didn't feel like spring, it looked like spring! The rain is more of a mist but it does leave everything wet. Here are a few pictures from our first week in Eugene!
POSING BY THE FLOWERS:
WE WENT TO THIS COOL PARK:
WENT TO THE WORLD FAMOUS VOO DOO DONUTS:

WE WENT ON SOME PRETTY HIKES:
& OF COURSE, WE HAD TO GO SEE "THE CROODS":
It's amazing to me that he will sit through a movie. He runs around like a crazy person every other second of the day. We turn on a movie and he doesn't move a muscle. :)
PLAYED SOME BASKETBALL:
WENT TO THE SATURDAY FARMERS MARKET:
We are loving Oregon!

Our last week in Utah was hectic as always! We obviously want to say goodbye to as many people as we can since we won't see them for a while. We visited lots & had a lot of fun before we headed to Richfield for a couple days. We packed, cleaned, ran errands, loaded the car and we were on our way! In Richfield we spent a couple days visiting with family. After a few days there, we headed to SLC for a night. Sadly, Austin's 17 year old cousin passed away very unexpectedly. We were all heart broken and devastated. That is something that nobody should ever have to deal with, especially his loving parents. :( We went to the funeral & then headed from SLC to Ontario, OR where we spent one night. The next day we finished the drive and made it to beautiful Eugene. I can't even explain how beautiful it is. Anyways, here is some pictures from out last week in Utah.. for a few months at least. :)
