Wow. I need to try and catch up here. Well, we made it to a family reunion/my mom's 60th birthday celebration in Ashland, OR. We stayed up on a mountain in a small trailer (AKA scooner) at Howard Prairie. One of the great things that came out of that experience was that I learned our whole family could sleep in a one bedroom trailer if needs be. Not an ideal situation in my eyes but possible. Highlights: Jack learned how to cast a fishing pole, Jack threw up all over Jude and Ezra while on the trailer bed (Jude was irate!), we made it to the Ashland 4th of July parade and watched the jets fly over from the field in the back of Aunt Fern's backyard, we made it up on the hill where we visited my mom's relatives who live entirely off the grid (my dream), and we got to surprise my mom with a birthday celebration.
Well, those were a few highlights from the last few weeks. I left out about a million awesome memories, so I'll try and be more diligent with my posting.
