Taking a break with family in WA and OR.

As you can see, we have been traveling northwest for special times with family. Mom and Dad Lipani flew to Seattle to sightsee and visit with the Holmes' for our Northwest wedding party. We toured Seattle before heading to Vancouver, WA for the party, which was a huge success. Take a look at some of our adventures. We had lots of good times and laughs, and enjoyed great food, beautiful sights, and catching up with family. Now we are in the Bend, OR area to spend time with Drew, Isis, and Jennelle, and to climb at Smith Rock. Stay tuned for more adventures.

Lots of Great New Pics!

As you can see, we have been on the move. If you scroll down, you will see pics from our trip to the Pizza Expo in Las Vegas, where we visited with Dad Lipani, then pictures of our visit to the Bay Area to see Ethan and Lisa and their beautiful daughter Chiara, and some pictures of the cliffs near Sonora, CA, where we will be for the next week and a half. Enjoy and tell us what you think!

We spent a day at Mickey's Beach, on the Pacific, bouldering, route climbing, exploring sea life, and checking out lots of naked people, as this area doubles as a nude beach! Posted by Hello
