We arrived on Friday to gray skies and rain, not what we are used to. Iz was sitting in her chair eating when we arrived. She is the cutest niece I have ever had ;) We went to the Rhododendron Gardens which was very pretty. Flowers and plants and crazy ducks that kept dipping under the water as seen below ;) We went to Reed College where Jake works and it is an amazing campus! It started to rain pretty hard so I didn't get any pictures but it was beautiful! We also did what we did well all week long...
drank coffee and ate very tasty food!
Bottoms up, haha!
How I love them so! We had some biscuits and gravy, bought some veggies, bread, the best pesto ever and apples! Walked around down town, BBQed that night and then watched a movie together! It was a fantastic day!
Isn't she lovely...Isn't she wonderful...
It was beautiful! Once we got to the top part you could feel the spray of the fall, it was so green and crisp feeling!
Bonneville Dam Tour
Full Sail Brewery Tour
Our tour guide Randy was awesome and was so passionate about his job. It is a neat little brewery and very good beer! We ate some beer cheese soup and I NEED to find the recipe, it was delicious!!!
Lots of beer!
This is my favorite from Full Sail! :)
Tillamook Cheese Tour:
I was in heaven! The factory was not working because it was Memorial Day but they still had the sample area open ;) I purchased these delicious things...
They are called 'Squeeky Cheese'!
The Hay Stack
Just so you know:
Haystack Rock is a 235-foot tall sea stack/rock formation on the Oregon coast the third-tallest such "intertidal" (meaning it can be reached by land) structure in the world.
Doesn't this look like a painting or postcard!?
I like to call this her "cheese ball" face!
That's what I have so far...more to come!
