Oregon Summer.2011

Oh how this state takes your breath away. My husband, Geoff, grew up in OR and so we went back for a family visit.  We were there for 12 glorious days...and filled it up with so many great memories! 
Checked off my list:
~ Spend time at the beach
~ Drive up to the mountians (we listened to Glee and Wicked the whole way up..my hubby loves me)
~ Bike ride (every day)
~ Shop in Sisters, OR (adorable little town)
~ Obviously GREAT family time, love them!
~ Schwerzler family slide show.....makes me nostalgic and wish slides were still around...FUN!
~ Annual movie trip with Geoff & Father-in-law :) (and movie with the Navarro girls-empty theatre!)
~ Horseback riding (mine was named Pawnee...which show is this from?!?!)
~ Canoeing (TOTALLY different than canoeing here in OH....so coooooooolllllll)
~ Saw Mt. Hood (where The Shining was filmed)
~ Day trip to Portland....and shopping....and MY FAVORITE STORE....Paper Source (not one in OH)
~ Hot tubing
~ Light tanning from beautiful sun
~ Teaching the twins to drive (well, Geoff did.....I videoed!!!)
~ Pool time including slides!
~ Delicious food....yum
~ Visiting Geoff's grandma (GG) and Aunt Jeanie...love them....hilarious!
~ Worked on my spanish :)
~ Geoff's sister made CD's out of old tape recordings..of little Geoff making up creative stories {love}
~ So much more, I'm KNOW I didn't list them all......

I was filled with relaxation/good times to last me for a little bit.  I have so much to be greatful and thankful for!   Love the great state of OR, who wants to go with us next time!
