Oregon to Washington Day #4

In the morning, we headed out of Oregon and went on our way to Washington…

We stopped at a small town for lunch: Astoria.  Don’t you just love how the flowers hang from the baskets?!

We sat near a group of senior women having lunch together.   They seemen nice enough, but didn’t say much to us.  Before we left, one of them got up and “congratulated” (her word)  us for having such well behaved children.  Another commented, “we know they are well behaved because we would know right away if they were not!”  I jokingly replied, “must be the Benedryll!”  They laughed and thanked me for the advice since they have grandchildren… HA HA!!!

Ever the photographer that he is, Vince is trying to convince them to pose for the camera… they don’t look thrilled!

While poor James did this…. he was exhausted!  (According to Uyen, he woke up to use the bathroom, and did not wake up until morning time!)

Ethan was finally in better spirits by dinner time!  He enjoyed Morgan’s pasta noodles with salt and butter…
