Portland again!

So I know I have alot of pictures from Portland but these one were taken on my phone so I couldn't leave them out :)
We started out at Red Robin bc Tracy knows how much I love this place!!! YUM!

Then we went to get frozen yogurt at YoCream. mmmmmm and it didn't melt as soon as I walked outside... it was great!~
On to Mount Hood again in the snow... in our shorts :)

This is some yummy pizza we had in Hood River, OR. I can't remember all thats on it, but it was very refreshing :)
Another picture of Moltnomah Falls... breathtaking!


And who could leave out Lady Liberty from the 4th of July parade...
on a bicycle that is....


Oh the beach... lovely



Yay Pacific Ocean!
So this ice cream was delicious... Marionberry ice cream (apparently Marionberries are indiginous to Oregon) it was good!
And this blue flower is also indiginous to Oregon... or so some strange lady said when we walked by them... I think a bee landed in my hair while taking this.
This was a cute kite store: Once upon a Breeze. Kites are a big thing up there... probably because its nice and windy...and cool enough to fly kites...and not so hot that they burn... yes kites are lovely up there
CLAM CHOWDER!!! of course we were on the coast so we had to indulge in a bowl of this deliciousness...

And last but not least...the huge biscuit and gravy and french toast we had for breakfast the last day of the trip... I was full for the whole day :)

Well the Portland photos are over, but there is more to blog about later! Have a great week everyone!

The roommates: Tracy and Ashley


DAY 1
Voodoo Donuts!!

We got a tang filled donuts, maple with bacon on top (yum!), oreo cookie donut, classic voodoo doll, m&ms, and captain crunch donut.... so good and sugary!



Trillium Lake, OR
Breathtaking!

MOUNT HOOD!
We visited Timberline Lodge on Mount Hood. This was the same lodge where they filmed the Shining :)
Look snow in July! And yes, we were in shorts... it was cold, but felt so good!


We visited the Naked Winery in Hood River, OR. So fun!

Multnomah Falls
Gorgeous!!!!

(and they did film some of the Twilight movie here :)

DAY 2
We went shopping!!! Didn't take to many pictures this day except when we relaxed over dinner that night, but as you can see above we spent alot!


DAY 3
Happy 4th of July!
We watched a parade at Cannon Beach, OR. This one kid even yelled out "Happy 16 divided by 4!" haha it was great.
This picture is so American, little girl with her flags in front of the post office waiting for grandpa... too cute.


Haystack Pile Rock
Cannon Beach, OR


Remember the movie The Goonies? Yep, this was the place they filmed some of the scenes!
Can I just say how much I love this place!!






These starfish were hard to find at first, but they were a nice surprise to end our day
Miss you girls! Had such a blast and can't wait to go there again!

To catch you up

So because I have missed a whole two months of posting, here are a few short pictures to catch you up!
First, our 4th wedding anniversary! June 2nd came and went so fast and we were busy preparing for youth camp as always, but Robert managed to send me this wonderful gift to work :) I love fruit! So I got him a pair of those ugly five finger shoes...he kept bugging me so I finally gave in.
Happy anniversary babe!

Next, my mema's tombstone came in.. I drove out to the cemetery by myself to enjoy the peaceful quite and the breeze as I remembered all my favorite moments with her. Its still hard sometimes to think she is gone.


Our puppy is getting so big! Once upon a time, she learned how to chew the cables in the back yard and we lost all internet and cable for a while... boo. This picture below was her "I'm sorry" face. She is too cute and has a fun personality. I just love our Sadie!


And our "kids" are getting so big! (all the nieces and nephews are growing so fast, we love you all!)

And in case anyone was curious because its summer and all... Sadie hates the pool.
More updates coming soon!
