Mini Trip

Elanor and I went back to Oregon last week. It was a short trip, less than a week, but very fun. We went back so that I could do the choreography for a dance in my mom's play she is directing, "A Midsummer Night's Dream". If you happen to be in the Portland, OR area near the end of October you should plan on seeing this show. My mom is a wizard with kids/teenagers and puts on good quality entertaining shows. For more info go here.

It was a lovely few days of rehearsals, rain, sun, swimming and sailing.
Jumping with excitement because we are at Nan and Grandpa's house!

Multnomah Falls
Being silly.

The weather changed on us so we went sailing!

Swimming with Mema and Papa:

Cousins, Casen and Colbi also came by to visit and swim and the three of them love playing together!

 Columbia Gorge hike:
Elanor and my mom/Nan collecting sticks and leaves.
Elanor found some Queen Anne's Lace. 

Wild flowers. 
Blackberries grow everywhere in Oregon. Really. Everywhere. 
This is where I am from folks.

A sunset plane ride back to Utah:

We had a grand time and I am so glad Elanor remembers everyone now. She loves her grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. We will hopefully come back soon Oregon!
