News From the Road


We are having a wonderful time and spent the first part of the trip with my husband's family. I won't post pics of all of them as I am not sure how they feel about their pictures out there so I try to be sensitive to that.
Anyways other folks are with us but I will show you our family.

We have been staying at a beautiful home in the woods in Southern Oregon. Here's #3 enjoying the hammock by the pond. Our days are so full and we are all tired but something about vacation keeps you going. Daily trips to Dutch Bros. coffee up here is a must.


We are now with my brother's family and having a wonderful time with my kin. I don't see them often and this is such a treat to be with my family. My own blood. Love them. Tonight we went to buy our fireworks for the fourth and that was such fun. My daughter carried over one the size of a trash can laughing. $50 bucks blown in one shot. That must be some firework. We kept our choices more on the mild side.


Tomorrow it is off to gorgeous Crater Lake. Will share soon when the time is available. Just savoring my wonderful brother and his family that I love so much. They are the warmest folks and I am so lucky to be related to these folks.

Sounds like your family is having a great time. My family doesn't do fireworks, but we can see them from a nearby chuch and our subdvision does them. You'll have to tell us what that $50 one does! Have a great 4th.

You manage to stay so pretty and thin, Elaine. Maybe it is that little whipper snapper that is growing so big every day! Glad you're enjoying your trip!

Great photos from your trip....it must be cold up there in the mountains! We are still traveling, and it is rainy today so we are letting the kids sleep in while Trip and I play on the internet.

I love Quinoa salad....I have been cooking with it a lot lately, too, because it is gluten-free.
