Big catch!

We headed out to Junction City Pond this morning. With our good friends. We were there for about an hour in a half and they decided to go home. Nothing was biting. So off to the car and they drove away.

We started our car and decided to stay and try some more. We came home with Ten rainbow trout. I'd say it was good to try again. It was Adan and Elijah's first catch! And of course Elijah my 5 year old brought home the biggest one!

What a good way to spend the morning.
Can't wait till dinner.

Spirit Falls

Went to Spirit Falls on Mothers Day. What a beautiful day. We drove past Cottage Grove and towards Dorena Reservoir. Star and her daughter came along. We were the only ones out there.

It was such a lovely hike down to the base of the falls.
We took lots of pictures. It was so inspiring all the beauty all around us.

We trecked up to the base of the falls. The power of the water coming down. Was so intense. The closer we got the force was pushing us back. It was like icy drops of water being slapped into our face. Check out my hat, the power of the falls was pushing my hat up. We loved it! Just to feel it. It was amazing! I had to let out a big Whooah!

What Wonderful Day

What a wonderful Sunday! Sun was a shining not a cloud in the sky. Well there was one little puff floating by. We went out to Maracola to a May Gathering. It was so beautiful out there. Pretty country out the. Oh How I want to live on a farm. We went to Rosetta's Farm. She owns the Herb shop here in Eugene Oregon("Mama Rosa's Herbs") She has goats, Shelton pony, and a wonderful garden.

My Oldest Son (Adan) kept on going over and hanging w/ Shelton pony. Elijah was more into the goats. There was a Nanny w/ her kids. They were so sweet. I got stung by something up under my pant leg. I couldn't see what it was. I went in to check it out. I sprayed Rosetta's Shine Spray on it. immediately the pain was gone. hurray for Herbs!! Great Food, Good music and Great company.
