I unfortunately did not take as many pictures as I hoped I would. I often forgot the camera and Tyler and I were sometimes separated as he went on work trips, and I went to Utah.
Here are the only two pictures I took in Utah... We had a great trip though and I loved spending time with the McKees! I was also able to make a quilt and bumpers for the baby with the help of my mom, Aunt Terri, Julie and Susy. Thanks everyone!

Here is a picture of Tyler out on a boat for work holding a sturgeon:
Lovely fish, eh?-- He had a great experience though and this should hopefully help improve his chances of getting into grad school for Natural Resource Management.
A few reason why I love Oregon....because I feel like sharing:
-Although I am loving being back in Virginia, the weather in Portland is just so pleasant. It is is warm and sunny, without being too hot and it is not humid. Falls in Virginia are colorful, but not crisp and windy like Oregon falls. Sweater weather starts much sooner in Oregon, which is a plus.
-I do love being around family and all of our family is in Oregon
-Compared to BV, the grocery stores in Oregon are so much better, with so many more healthy choices and organic food.
-I like being close to a large city, yet close to the wilderness and some of the most beautiful country in the U.S.
I think these pictures show why I love Oregon:
The beautiful Columbia Gorge! This is on Dog mountain and I did not get to go on this hike because I felt sick that day...(Erik took this picture, which is why it is so good)
The end for now.
