Can't Wait!

I can't remember if I have mentioned this or not already, but I have been sooooo homesick for Oregon this summer. I love Las Vegas...but I miss Oregon too. So you can imagine how excited I am to spend a WHOLE week in gorgeous Black Butte (near Bend)! Plus, I will get to see all these fun people:Kellen and Caleb! And baby boy C or K who will be born TODAY! That's right, I'll be holding a BRAND NEW baby for a week!

Joseph, Justin and baby Erica. I can't wait for Easton and Carly to have so much fun with their cute cousins!

And of course, Jenni & Michael and Mom & Dad. YAY!

A few pics from google: The above is my favorite mountain in Oregon. I LOVE how symmetrical it is (if you know me well, you know my thing with symmetry). It's just the perfect mountain and growing up I loved driving by it, and now I'm excited to see it again. When you're little and you draw mountains, I bet they look like this...well, at least mine probably did because I couldn't draw anything else.

The 3 Sisters; not to mention the trees, water and grass! So beautiful!

And I hope to be able to do some of this. I don't even remember the last time I rode a bike, but honestly I have been looking forward to it so much. I just know it's going to be great.
Yay for VACATIONS!

Sigh.........I have been super homesick for oregon as well. Is it crazy that I can forget how green it is there? I mean- I lived there my whole life, and I know it's so green, but it always shocks me when i go home because it's even more beautiful than I could remember! Oregon is wonderful. Have fun!

When are you going? I'm going to Oregon on Monday for a few days. I haven't been in almost 5 years! In fact I think we attempted meeting up, but it never worked out. Flying into Eugene... I would die if I could see you!
