Geographica: The Pacific Coast States

     Sorry, I am late to post today.  We arrived home last night after a wonderful week long visit and feeding frenzy with my family.  There are five of us kids, three spouses, five grandchildren (notice, most of them are still mine), one Great-Grandma and a whole host of cousins.  My mom is a great cook, so we're stuffed.  We're all exhausted today and slowly unpacking and easing back into our schedule.  I did force my kids to do school today, employing the familiar refrain, "You'll be glad in June."  So I am late to post Ally's GeoQuiz, and she was late to write it, but here it is and we hope you enjoy!
