Nehalem Bay State Park | Nehalem, OR

When I said my vows and joined the Jacobsen family back in 2008, I signed myself up for a lifetime of summer camping. Being from Alaska, this was new territory for me. Camping in Juneau was very few and far between; likely because if I wanted to spend some time in the great outdoors, I did not have to go farther than my own backyard. I will be the first to admit that it took a few years to adapt to this new tradition, but I am so happy that I did. Now every summer I eagerly look forward to sleeping in a tent and having gourmet meals by the fire. Yes, I said gourmet meals. The Jacobsen's don't do it any other way!

This particular camping trip was last minute but worked out perfectly! Thank you to Erin for finding the only open site along the Oregon Coast. We all had a wonderful time, and in typical Aliese fashion, I had my camera with me everywhere I went. Check out some of the highlights from our trip!
