So... I haven't posted in awhile

Hey, there!  I have a lot to catch up on, huh?

In June, we took a two week vacation to Oregon and Washington!  We got to see a bunch of family and friends!  We had a great time!  While I was in Oregon, I got to go horseback riding, shooting, canoeing, to Cannon Beach, and to Sunriver.  We spent a few days in Sunriver at a house we rented with family!  Also, some friends had a party for us, and all our closest friends from that area were able to come! :) That was fun!  We even got to do some English Country Dancing at the party!

In Washington, we went shopping, to Pike Place Market, spent time with family, and even met the Doublemint Gum twins (we were even on camera at one point)!  We also went to the first Starbucks, and a Mariners game!

We also had some interesting airport experiences.  When we arrived in Oregon, I ran into my best friend from when I lived there at the airport!  We knew it was possible because they were coming home from a trip, but we didn't think it would actually happen!  But it did! That was cool!  When we landed at the airport to come home, we had another fun experience.  There were two guys running to catch the train to their next destination, but one of their phones dropped. My brother picked it up, and tried to throw it to them through the closing doors of the train.  It was flying... clunk!  It hit the closing door! The two guys were whisked away on the train.  The friend of the guy who lost the phone, called that phone.  They got off at the next stop, and we headed there (we needed to ride the train anyway).  They stepped on the train for a moment, D.J. handed them the phone, and they handed D.J. $5, the doors closed, and we were off to our destination and they were off to theirs.

Over the 4th of July, we had some friends who used to live here stay with us for a few days.  So, on the 4th of July, we had a little welcome/4th of July party for them!  That night we went to see the city fireworks!  They were really neat!

On Wednesday, we just got back from a little-less-than-a-week trip to Montana.  It was good to see family there! :)

We hit the ground running, with a busy (but fun) day yesterday, and a busy (but fun) day today!  This whole next week is going to be very busy with a lot of events, but it will be very fun!

The summer is going by so quickly!  Enjoy it while it lasts!
