This move we opted for a less of a hillbilly status and got a U-Box. It was SO nice not having to hall all of our things through the mountains in a trailer or continually look out the window to ensure our belongings hadn't come loose from a pick-up.
Our place in Utah.
Neatly organized U-Box.
While I enjoyed our time in Utah and being close to family and friends, I missed our little Eugene. It just feels like home.
Once we arrived we had about 4 days until crazy busy life started up again. Since these few days were really the only stress and deadline free days Matt experienced this summer we thought we would make the most of it.
First on our list- the coast.
I. Love. The. Ocean!
It's always a little chilly but we seemed to pick a good day.
This was Wills first real time at the beach, where he was old enough to be excited about his surroundings.
I thought he would try to eat the sand but he didn't. He just kept picking it up and letting it fall out of his hand, then squealed with excitement.
The beach was a success.
Our next adventure was to hike to the top of Spencer Butte. It's only about a mile up and the path is pretty baby friendly.
We still don't have a baby hiking backpack but this time the Bjorn worked great.
The summit was beautiful.
And totally worth me rolling my ankle three times. Those branches really jump out at you...
I carried Will like this the whole time.
The highest point.
A Lion King moment.
And as per usual Eugene was blooming hot when we arrived (we don't have a/c). I'm just grateful this time around I'm not seven and a half months pregnant. Gross.
Oh and because it's not physically possible to be in Eugene and not go to Voodoo Doughnuts and get a maple bacon bar... we did that too.
Do not judge unless you've tried it. SO GOOD!
