while i was pregnant with charlie and jamie was in switzerland aya and i went on our last mother daughter road trip for a while. i felt so nostalgic/ sentimental going through these. i hadn’t taken time to look at them until recently due to nausea all the way through my pregnancy and then baby life. i do miss our adventures, i know we’ll get there again and it will be even funner with charlie along. we both love him to bits and he’s so laid back, he’s going to be a great little adventurer. i will however always cherish the years i had with just aya and am so grateful for that one on one time we had. sometimes she’ll take a giant sigh and say ‘i miss those days mommy’. i sort of downplay it but going through these photos i get it. it made me decide to put aside a little more special time for just us.
so here’s the oregon coast. we stayed in a cabin in the forest and a yurt by the ocean, explored a ton of beaches along the way and ate way too much food. it was a good trip.
^^^running around at canon beach screaming at the ocean at the top of her lungs and letting the waves chase her was definitely one of the highlights of the trip.
