·10% contribution into current employer's 401k plan (no employer match)

This stuck out at me. Are you in the highest tax bracket? Does that 401k plan have any good points to it (i.e. nonexistent fees, excellent selection of mutual funds)? If not it might be better to just invest in a taxable account!

then I'm looking to continue the contributions into the Oregon 529 plan. I don't like the Oregon fees

Then don't use Oregon's plan! You can use any state's plan, it's just that you give up some tax benefits by doing so.

which we'll max until we hit our AGI limit
Can you find people (non-relatives) under the AGI limit who are willing to contribute into your children's ESAs?

Otherwise your plan sounds good.
