Non-Stop Before School

In our 2 weeks that we have been in Portland we have been going 24/7. Running errands, putting the house together, getting ready for school and the million other things that go along with moving!!... So again not enough time to blog, but I am trying to catch up on the blog.
Chase's mom and sister spent the first week here with us. It was so fun to have them around because it still seemed like we were on vacation. While they were here we went to the Dahlia Festival, and saw the prettiest flowers! We also went on my favorite hike so far. It had the coolest waterfall, and Chase and I want to go back to fish there. Here are a few pictures from the Dahlia Festival.

Just one of many Beautiful Flowers

One of our favorites.

Our next adventure was a little trip up Seattle to see my grandparents, and to see the Utah State girls soccer team play a couple games. We had such a fun time seeing both the grandparents and the girls from the team. Unfortunately, I didn't get any photos of the girls, but here are some from Gammie and Pompo's house and Pike Place Market.
It was Chase's first time to Seattle so we had to go to Pike Place!

We watched the guys toss the fish back and forth.

Can't get enough

We of course took the ferry to Gammie and Pompo's

Nice to visit again

We had a really fun time visiting Gammie and Pompo. It was nice to take a break from all the running around we have done in Portland. Hopefully it won't be too long before we head back to Whidbey Island. Thanks to Gammie and Pompo for letting us stay with them for the weekend!

The Move

We're here!! We are now officially Oregonians. We moved out about 2 weeks ago and it has been non-stop since we got here. We took 2 days the make the 16 hour drive from St. George. Chase's mom drove with us and was nice to relieve me and drive for a while. We had the U-Haul towing Chase's car and Kathy and I drove my car the Excursion! It was a pretty drive most of the way and we stopped in a couple really cute towns along the way.
The First sign of Oregon!
Apparently Oregon is really flat too.
SOO many trees! It was a tree farm for making paper.
The Colombia Gorge is known for the Windsurfing.
We had a safe trip coming out here and luckily it went smoothly! We are excited to explore a little and for school to get going!

Lots To Blog About

There is a lot that has happened since the last blog and not enough time to tell it all but i will try my best!
To start off, we made a Disneyland trip with Mitch and Meghan. We had so much fun with them and would go back anytime! We spent 2 days at the Big D and it was probably the hottest weekend on record. We were dying with the heat but that's nothing Splash Mountain can't fix. Here are a few photos of our trip.
We had a little car trouble on the way, but luckily it was just the air filter and the AC worked just fine.

First ride of the trip was Peter Pan!

My new favorite ride... Toy Story!

How perfect for Chase and Alex

I had to try the turkey leg, and it was the greasiest thing I have ever had! (But I liked it.)
All in all we had a really fun trip with Mitch and Meghan.It was a great way to end our summer Vacation in St. George
