My wife and I have gone to Seaside, Ore., for our past two anniversaries.It’s a fun Oregon coastal town. There’s a big arcade, fun shops, and a beautiful beach. They even have the biggest privately owned aquarium on the West Coast.

But the one difference this year was the rain. Boy, it was like a monsoon! Have you ever had it rain on your vacation? My baby was a little trouper, she never complained. But I felt so bad that the end would blow rain around her. I found a workaround. Needless to say, you can never be too prepared for rain in Oregon!
