Astoria revisited

When we first got in to Astoria, the sun was out and it wasn't raining...so we busted a move up to the Astoria Column.

Somebody in our party had the harebrained idea to climb up all 6,000 steps (actually, it's a mere 164 steps...but when you're just getting over a mild case of the flu and you've recently thrown out your back, it feels like at least 6,000 steps!). It was super windy when we got up there, and the hubs didn't last very long before heading back down. Dad, Barb and I persevered though...just long enough to snap a few photos and laugh about how lovely our windblown hair was looking. :) The view sure was nice though!

Throughout the rest of the weekend we ate some really great food (Mmmm, Bosnian food)...

Went sightseeing...

And just generally enjoyed hanging out together...

Plus, these two were (mostly) very accommodating while I played around with different settings on my camera. :)

I'm so thankful that Dad and Barb live close enough that we can take little trips like this together. I wish we could be so lucky to have the rest of our parents live a little closer as well...but we'll take what we can get. :)
