Day 83

Sunday afternoon, after church we all took an outing to Benham falls. We even got to see a couple of crazy kayakers go down! Then it was back to the house for dinner and to watch Life of Pi.

Day 81 (Part 2)

1. Hanging out at the house with Dad.
2. Going to Old Mill with Susan and Mom
3. My favorite store in Prineville. One day I'll actually go in!
4. The best Chinese restaurant in Oregon. We drive to ridiculous lengths to get here. And we've now shown up enough that they know us!

Day 82 (Part 1)

Spent the morning hiking up Pilot Butte. Obviously we wore the boys out. But us girls were full of energy! Then it was off to Looney Bean Coffee.

Day 81

1. Admiring the snowy peaks while driving along the gorge
2. A park in Hood River
3. Winter wheat? and sagebrush
4. Stopping in Madras to watch the biggest fire I've ever seen. Sad but fascinating.

What else? Today we drove to Bend to visit our friends the Ayers. Because of snow on the pass, we turned a three hour drive into a four hour drive by coming around by the gorge. We then stopped enough times that we turned the four hour drive into an almost six hour drive. Sigh. But we made it!

Day 67

Spent the morning doing chores with Uncle Rick, Tia Vero, Olivia & Lillian. We held baby chicks, saw freshly born lambs and fed the cows.

Then it was off the Mt Angel Abbey for a picnic lunch.

And the rehearsal & dinner in the evening.

For the rehearsal dinner, a couple of ladies from church volunteered to cook it! Our family did the decorations and young people from church served and cleaned up. We invited out of town guests so we had about 50 people there so it was a fantastic party!
