Eagle Crest Vacation in Central Oregon

We had a fun family vacation week in Central Oregon earlier this month. We stayed at Eagle Crest Resort in Redmond, took a day trip to Crater Lake and ventured into Bend a few times too. In Bend we visited the gorgeous Drake Park and took the requisite tour of Deschutes Brewery. We spent most of our time at the resort relaxing, swimming, barbecuing, watching the deer family that lived there, riding bikes and we even had a few early morning runs. It was a great time with both of our families who each came and joined us for a few days.

Shirzads in Portland

The Shirzads from Spokane spent a few days visiting us earlier this month. The girls LOVE their cousins and aunt and uncle. We all had a great time taking advantage of all the summer fun in Portland. We rode the preschool rides at Oak Park followed by lunch at Cha Cha Cha and OMSI. The next day we went to the Sunset at the Zoo event. Even Belle and Aurora were at the zoo.

Thanks to Susan for taking all these pictures at the zoo so I could steal them off of Facebook :)

3 year interview

I finally took a few minutes today to sit the girls down and ask them some questions ("interview"). I want to capture their little voices and personalities that are constantly changing and growing faster than I can keep up! Most of their answers are pretty predictable, but a few were pretty random.
