One of my favorite family trips was an annual excursion to Rockaway Beach. My parents and I would spend a few nights there during spring break, taking walks on the beach and cooking up spaghetti and artichokes in our cozy hotel kitchenette. Over the weekend, Ryan and I joined some college friends back at Rockaway. We celebrated two birthday girls with an 80's theme night, barbecue, bonfire, and beach town pub crawl. A good time was had by all.

Tomorrow Ryan will head back to the coast to fulfill one of his New Year's goals. He'll meet up with two friends to begin a bike ride from the California/Oregon border up to the Oregon/Washington border. Wish him safety and luck!
