Catch of the Day

Chase is enjoying his summer break but unfortunately for me, I started classes already! But my rule is, if Chase is on summer break I can act like I am too! So today Chase and I headed to Trillium Lake, just below Mt. Hood, to do some fishing. It was the first trip of the season and first fishing trip in Oregon.
We were excited to finally have a break from the rain and enjoy the sunshine. Since last summer I am proud to say that I am the fishing Champ and today was no different. HAHA! We each caught two fish and we were excited that we didn't get skunked. The first 3 were smaller but luckily yours truly caught the catch of the day!!

We had such a fun day AND dinner! We can't wait to go back, but first I have to go to a few classes before the next trip. Also I have to mention the AWESOME World Cup game today! Just in case you didn't notice I had to support my team by wearing my USA jersey!... Next game Saturday 2:30ET vs Ghana! GO USA!!

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!! The World Cup is finally underway! Friday was the opening game, and I got up extra early to watch South Africa vs Mexico. But what I have been even more excited for is the USA vs England game!! I planned to make a breakfast casserole for brunch and then for a half time treat I made American flag cookies! And of course I am wearing my Red, White and Blue to support my team! GO USA!!!

SUMMER! (almost)

I am finally done with my finals week! Luckily I only had 2 tests and a paper. Chase on the other hand, has finals next week and has close to 9 tests! Crazy, I no I could never do it, but he has been working so hard and doing really well in school! We are both so excited to be on summer break for a couple weeks. Sadly our breaks are not the same so we are going to take separate trips to Denver and St. George. Hopefully in September we will be able to take a trip somewhere together.
Now, on to the weather here in Portland. I am not too happy with the record days of rain! At first I thought people were exaggerating how much it rains here and during the winter it really isn't too bad. Now that its June I am more than ready for a glimpse of the sun and heat. But I think I have figured it all out. My theory is that all of this rain is in my favor, because now that I am on a short summer break the sun is going to shine without a cloud in the sky! The forecast is almost a dream... I am going to cross my fingers that more of this warm weather is still to come and Summer is here to stay!!!
