Eagle Crest

It has been way too long since I last posted. Quick Eagle Crest re-cap:
It was hot! We swam and rode tandem bicycles. We went to Smith Rock - its HUGE! We saw some rock climbers. Michael climbs there. We went to a museum and saw an otter, owls, and a bald eagle. And TONS of chipmunks and ground squirrels. (I learned chipmunks have facial stripes, ground squirrels don't.) We had ice cream and milkshakes at Sno Cap Drive-in in Sisters. They were delicious! We played some tennis. We watched Psych and The Karate Kid. There was a bunny in our backyard and Tanner fed it lettuce. We went to the lava tube caves. We could see our breath inside because it was so cold! WE drove up a big volcanoe and looked at mountains and a crater thing. "We were down there and we looked up here. Now we're up here and we look down there. What's the point?" (Arthur) It was a pretty fun trip overall.

Allie's Birthday

Allie's birthday was on a Saturday. I spent the night on Friday. We watched Save the Last Dance. Then on Saturday we went to Kneaders with the Grandparents and had french toast for breakfast. Then we went to Thanksgiving Point with Todd and family and Bruce and family (and still the Grandparents). We went thorugh the farm and had cake. Then we went to Brick Oven for dinner and Allie opened her presents. I gave her season 1 of The Office. That night she had a party for her frineds and I went for a bit. It was a fun weekend.
