OREGON or BUST

This weekend Bridger and I ran away. The "big boys " had some quality time with daddy at home. As Courtney, Lauren, and I devised a plan to dash up to Bend, Oregon, where Courtney's parents have a home and stay the weekend. The idea was contagious and before we knew it mom and Thos had jumped on the bandwagon!
We had an awesome weekend!

Here are some pics of our adventure...



we explored our road...

then, we went for a "hike"...


I know! Sexy mamma's!!! hee hee


Emery rocked the bridge! Her own personal catwalk!


then we hit Washington...


then we were asked to leave... :)

We stopped and had lunch at the base of Mt. Hood.
So Pretty!

Miss Kenzie was all work and NO fun! I kept telling her the fields can wait!

Mt. Hood... someday we will take this picture from the top!

and after a long day of play, we always had grandma to kiss us good night and send us to bed!

Thanks Wilkes mom and dad for letting us invade your little casa in the mountains! Thanks Thosy for being our chiefer, mom for being an awesome bedhog, matt and court for being our navigators (hee hee) yaya for being always willing to cuddle my ittle baby, morgan for the comic relief, and emery Jane and kenzie Sue for being such good "babysitters"!

Don't you just love Oregon?? It is seriously one of the most beautiful places ever! Your trip looked like so fun. Bend is such a gorgeous town. Tell the family hi from the Utah Porters! Love you!

Absolutely lovely. How do you get away with that crap?!? Oh ya, you married into my sweet family :) Doesn't it annoy you that I claim to be related to them. You deserve a trip to oregon lucky! Can I be invited next time?
