Back to real life after a fun 10 day family vacation to the Oregon coast. We had never been there before and it was so much fun exploring. We started in Portland and worked our way down to Florence and then across the state stopping near Bend. The big hit was the wild dune buggy ride along the sand dunes near Florence. A professional driver took us on a ride that rivaled some of the best theme park rides and we'd all definitely recommend it to anyone going to Florence. There are 2 dune buggy rides-one is a site seeing tour, more sedate type ride. The other is called the wild and crazy ride which is what we opted for. Lots of laughing and screaming. I'm the screamer in our family. The coastline is gorgeous. There were lots of quilt shops along the way. While we stayed in Florence I went to Jodi's Quilt and Fabric shop and Joy of Quilting. Each quilt shop is so unique and of course I found something I couldn't live without in each. But for now, back to the laundry and school shopping. The kids start back to school next Monday and many UFO's will become FO's.
