I love, love Oregon!

The views of where I am at are BEAUTIFUL!  I went on a run the other day and wish I had pictures to show you the beauty.  My run took me by the river and the water was so blue and the grass on the rivers edge was so green, I loved it and was soaking it all in for 5.5 mile run.  The good news is I had no idea how far the run would be and the bad news is I had no idea how far my run would be.  Running without any idea of where you will be when you finish can be mental.  It can make a run feel a lot further than it really is.  Plus it's a huge place so I was really worried I was getting lost.  I wanted a good run, but I didn't want it to turn into a 20 miler.  The views in this run really reminded me about how Great God is to give us rolling hills, mountains and beautiful rivers to run along.  Running allows you to enjoy Gods great creation in ways you wouldn't other wise see it....one of the reasons running is so great and breathtaking (because of the view...or breathtaking because of the hills!!!)

Max and I and Cole in the background
The boys LOVE, LOVE baseball
This vacation has been nice, but I don't know if I would call it a vacation with 2 kids, more like a trip.  It's been great to be at the pool and watch the kids having a blast.  Max has been doing so well in the pool which has been fun to watch.  I swear if we had a pool he would be an amazing swimmer....I need a underground pool at my house...STAT!  Well since that won't happen maybe just more trips with pools.  Watching your kids have so much fun is the best.  The weather has been in the high 80's which is better than the high 90's at home.  I love clear blue Sky's and the nature like setting here...AMAZING.

Cole having fun in the pool!
Cole loved playing with Uncle Andrew
