Newport or Bust

October 7 marked the second wedding anniversary for Korie and I. In celebration, we took Inen with us to Newport where Korie's family has a condo they are able to use there. It's one of my favorite places. The first time Korie brought me there, I fell in love with the area. I've never been much of a beach person, but this spot on the pier at Yaquina Bay is simply charming. It worked out well for our anniversary: It's familiar and homey, so we could feel comfortable bringing Inen. And it's great that we have our own kitchen there so we don't have to break the bank eating out.

The weather was spectacular. We did a lot of walking, visited our favorite breakfast haunt (The Coffee House, best coffee in Newport), went to Nye Beach, the Sylvia Beach Hotel (an author-themed hotel that opens unoccupied rooms to the public on Sundays), and worked on designing our dream house after watching far too much HGTV while Korie nursed Inen. It was wonderful. Here's a little slide show of the trip:

Two Weeks, Too Long

Okay all, sorry for the long dry spell.
This is mostly a post to break up the monotony, but also to kind of play catch-up.

People keep asking "What's going on?" and "When can I see more pictures?"
Well, Inen is getting bigger every day. (Surprise surprise!) To illustrate that, and to answer both of the above questions at once, I've made a slide show of pics from month one. Enjoy!
