Stamps has been busy!!

We have been having so much fun showing Stamps around our town! We live on the Central Oregon Coast and love taking trips to the beach and to the bay front. Stamps was so exited to visit the sea lions on the bay front. We held him very tight, because he was a little nervous that he might have to swim with these lazy giants.

Next we had to take his picture in front of the historic Yaquina Bay Bridge. And of course in front of all of the fishing boats!

Of course my girls held onto him very securely. But as I was taking these pictures of him I felt nervous that he would fall!! Talk about a nightmare.... can you imagine?! I kept saying to the girls, "Hold him tight, really tight... are you holding him tight?"

Stamp's visit just happened to coincide with a trip to visit my mom in Montana. So of course we brought Stamps along to show him more of Oregon, Washington, Idaho and Montana. Woohoo!! We stopped along the Colombia River Gorge in Oregon to show Stamps Multnomah Falls. It was gorgeous. Stamps looked from the car though because I had nightmares of him falling off of the bridge near the top of the falls.... But we took lots of pictures for him. :)

Washington was hectic and I almost pulled all of my hair out because our precious dachshund had been whining in the car for 10 hours... she hates riding in the car. So we don't have Washington pictures. But we were refreshed the next day as we crossed the border into Idaho. There we showed Stamps the oldest building in Idaho. The Cataldo Mission. It was amazing!
We couldn't get over the beauty of this place.

What are you doing in the confessional Stamps?! He's so sneaky. And I don't think he's an ordained priest... just sayin'

Montana was great fun. We enjoyed gorgeous mountains and beautiful Flathead lake.

Stamps was exited to visit a real log cabin at the Indian Museum and Trading Post!

Now we're back and Stamps is full of new memories, and of course ready to get to his next destination. We'll miss you Stamps!! x
