Are you looking to go on a guided trip or self support? How old are your kids?

The deschutes river (class III) is fun and beginner friendly, you can do great overnight trips on it. You can do either guided or unguided trips.

The Clackamas (III+) is good for a day trip if the water is over 1200cfs.

The White Salmon has good class III+ day trips.

If your are looking to go on a guided trip I would suggest River Drifters (I used to work for them, they are good people). But there are many other companies to choose from.

If you want a fun, unguided overnight trip, rent some gear and go down the Deschutes.

You might try posting on the yahoo groups WRRR, or PDX (PDX has more to it's name, but I don't know it). They are all in oregon/washington and seem to be a very welcoming group.
