Cape Expectations Management

We decided to set the bar low for our first family camping adventure, so we chose Cape Disappointment State Park as our destination.

Of course, it turned out to be a lovely spot, and after a few initial meltdowns, we all adjusted to our new environment with aplomb.

This wasn't exactly roughing it. Instead of a tent, we had our own luxurious yurt, complete with bunk beds and even a little electricity on tap. Miles immediately took to his new surroundings, declaring it "My yurt!" He was also pleased by the arrival of his friend Connor, whose burgeoning bicycling skills dazzled everyone.

Miles and Leo both had their first encounters with the Pacific Ocean itself (as opposed to its various appendages). We all left feeling excited about future camping adventures, and especially more yurts!
