Puget Sound

Have I mentioned how much I love that we live so close to so much water? Blake, Gypsy, and I took a short weekend trip up in the Puget Sound and stayed over in Seattle. We went to Bainbridge Island for the first time and I loved it! We enjoyed blue skies in Seattle where we had views of Mt. Rainier and we had lots of yummy food. I think Gypsy's favorite part of the trip was being allowed on the hotel bed.

July at a Random Glance

-Gypsy met her aunt Bailey from Seattle. Jennifer came down to Portland for the day and we had great time getting know each other and walking around town with the pups. Gypsy looks so much like her aunt Bailey.
-Blake grew a beard.
-Blake shaved his beard into a mustache thus, resulting in a chester look.
-Ella & Gypsy showed their love for each other. They really do love each other...well, sometime.

Kaiser Fun...again

So, I think my love for Indiana & Ohio and its residents keeps growing. After visiting New Mexico I left from there and ventured on to Indy. Janelle shows me such a great time each time I go and love spending time in midwest since this part of the country is still so new to me. My trips are starting to blend together and I can't really remember what we did this time, but I do know we went to Wilson's (the original Wendy's) in Ohio; it was a neat old place that had a lot of character. All the locals were so nice! Telling them I lived in Oregon made me seem so exotic. Liz and Lyric (Gypy's sister) were kind enough to let me stay with them in Indy on the 4th of July the night before my flight home. Thanks for showing the midwestern hospitality!

Northern New Mexico

I went to New Mexico to visit my grandparents and uncle and it was so nice to spend some time with them. Normally I just got to my grandparents' house, but this time we met up in Northern New Mexico. We spent time in Santa Fe and on the Turquoise Trail from Santa Fe up to Toas where we saw a lot of old missions. I was impressed by the bright colors we saw everywhere and the beauty of the old structures.
