Summer Recap

So, I should have written this a long time ago, but well, I guess I'm being lazy lately. That and my really weird work schedule means I don't get much productive done during the week. I work Monday through Thursday from 12:30 to 7:30 and then Friday from 7:45 to 3. That Friday morning get-up is killer! But hopefully this job will be done in another couple weeks and I can go back to regular subbing - which means I'll have to get up early every morning... is that a good thing or not?

Anyways, so here are some pictures from our August adventure in Oregon. We spent about 3 weeks down at Brian's parent's house in Corvallis. The first weekend was his high school reunion. Notice Brian and friend Dustin laying on the sidewalk after the bar closed down... We all stood around talking and it was freezing!

Then the grandparents came down from The Dalles for a few days. Brian, Allison, and their dad did the Bridge Ride on Sunday in Portland. I opted not to do it since it was starting at 6:30 in the morning and riding 30 some miles... I haven't been on a bike in at least a year... So mom and I went to church in Newberg and then met them for a BBQ in Portland with the uncles that also rode and family. It was seriously yummy food!

Then we spent 3 days down at Crater Lake and celebrated Brian and Allison's 28th birthday with a very nice dinner at the Crater Lake Lodge. We actually stayed down in Prospect and on Saturday there was a "Jamboree" comlete with logging show! Reminded me of 4th of July when I was little in Clatskanie! Some friends were driving through so met us for the afternoon. At the end they had a kids search for change in the pool where they did log rolling. Then after everyone else left David and Dahlia decided they wanted to try log rolling... it's harder than it looks!

After all that we drove home at 2 in the morning. Sunday we went down to the coast and up to Tillamook to see the Roberts. And unplanned ended up spending the night. Good thing because the cheese factory had run out of cheese curds on Sunday night! Horror of horrors! So we got ice creams, but had to go back in the morning when their machine was fixed.

On Monday then we drove, from Tillamook back to Corvallis, packed our stuff, hung out with David and Dahlia, then drove home to Wenatchee getting in at 3:30 in the morning. That was way too much driving for one weekend!!!

Happy Birthday Twins!
