Only One Day Like Today

First Day of Vacation in Tillamook, OR

Filed under: Today's Blessing — by onlyonedayliketoday @ 8:09 pm

Here we are at our first vacation destination . . . McDonald’s for breakfast.  At this point, Ted and I are wondering . . . what were we thinking?  Seven kids and four dogs in a camper, and we call this VACATION?:)  

But we have a super, duper set-up here at the Best Western Hotel in Tillamook, OR.  They have a very nice campground right in their parking lot.  It is only $40.00 a night for full hook-ups and their free breakfast in the hotel.  Wow, the free breakfast alone just about pays for our stay.    (At the above mentioned breakfast stop, we spent $38.00 this morning!  Yep, I couldn’t believe it either until I actually looked at the receipt!) 

They are also fine with our four dogs and they have lots of grassy areas for their vacationing pleasure.  We also have use of their swimming pool . . . which is what the kids are doing now:)

I think this is going to work out very nicely!   Tomorrow we will find a beach to play on, as they are forecasting “few showers” for Thursday and Friday. 




  1. Mommy and Daddy have to be little crazy to take seven children and 4 dogs in tight quarters. However, being the great parents they are, I am not too surprised.

    Looks like everyone is happy and having a good time. So glad you have found a place that accomodates the family and even have free breakfasts!!!

    Pictures are great. Thank you, Meemom

  2. Oh I’m so glad you’re doing this! It is so fun to “be along with you” on your trip.

    Looks like you’re all having a super time! What a fun vacation!

    It looks like the weather has been cooperating too! I’m so glad!

    Can’t wait to see more pics!
