September is the best month by FAR

Seriously though, I dare you to disagree.

Summer in Seattle is AMAZING but,

Right at the beginning of Fall is TOO GOOD.

We started it off with a bang by getting passes to the Pacific Science Center. Micah had a week off and we partied like animals.

I mean, Dinosaurs.

Pippa loved this car thing, out of everything else in the Museum.

We then went down to Portland and the Oregon Coast. Even though it was raining while we were there, we were nice and warm in our Yurt. What is a Yurt, you ask? Um, go google it.

All I will tell you is that they are AWESOME and I want to sleep in one again!

You know what else is awesome? THE OREGON COAST. Like, as in it deserves the word “awesome” awesome.

The biggest, most amazing beach I have ever been on. And I’ve been on a few beaches.

Look how it goes out FOREVER. It’s like being in heaven.

We got so wet but it didn’t matter.

We stopped by Cannon Beach to check out Haystack Rock. This picture hardly captures the wonder of it.

We then went down to Portland, where the food is plentiful and the weirdness abounds!

Also, a Rose test garden.

On our way back to Seattle we visited Mount St. Helens! If you see pictures of it before 1980, it is amazing to see it with half of it just blown off! Very very neat.
