Comments about Oregon:
- So much green. Everywhere! I really couldn’t believe there were so many trees. Made my town seem barren.
- Oregon drivers are so mellow. No one was speeding. Or tailgating. It was confusing.
- Only in Oregon: We were hungry and were looking for the nearest McDonalds. Thankfully, we saw a sign advising that the Golden Arches were off of the next exit. It was a 25 minute drive from the exit to a cheeseburger!
After a 4 hour drive from SeaTac Airport to Silverton, we arrived at Lara’s Rehearsal Dinner. Lara quickly found herself some friends and made a mud stew.
Lara’s In-laws’ house was beautiful Lara was really enjoying the backyard.
She was also enjoying how generous Vero was with her $$! Thank you to all my dear friends for spoiling my little Bear and making her feel so loved. Evelyn: When can you babysit?
Hard earned cash. It pays to be cute!
The next morning, we took the opportunity to explore the beautiful falls that were a short drive away. This is Stephen showing off how easily he can climb. That same trek took me twice as long!

Trying to keep up with the sportier girls.
This smile says: “Guys, I am scared to death of being placed on this log that is teetering over a rushing rapid. I will still smile, though. Because the camera is pointing at me”
Veronica! Really? Taking a picture just inches from choppy waters? I totally trusted you with my first born. 🙂
She really enjoyed our nature hike. 🙂
