Benjamin at Crown Point

Last Saturday was a beautiful Fall day. My sister, Sarah, was here visiting from Sacramento, and we decided that we needed to take advantage of such a day. Matt was able to come along too! We drove over to Troutdale, and hooked up with my parents and my brother, Nate, and we all drove out the Historic Columbia Highway to Crown Point, overlooking the beautiful gorge. It was Benjamin's first time to Crown Point -- a place that I have been to many, many times in my life. I remember going there when I was a kid. We used to call it the Windy House, because it is usually very windy there -- sitting out in the middle of the gorge. I remember running around, going to the little gift shop, seeing the view from the top, and of course the thrill of almost being knocked over by the wind. The Vista House just recently re-opened after undergoing some renevations and restorations. I hope that when Ben is older he also will have fond memories of visiting the Windy House.

That last picture looks like something you'd see in a parenting magazine or advertisement! :)
