labor day weekend

Aahhh - I love 3-day weekends, and Labor Day weekend was no exception! We decided to make a trip to Oregon with our day off because I've never been there. So Monday morning we (finally) cleaned up some lingering moving messes, packed our lunches, and ran for the border!

Enjoying our picnic in the booming metropolis of Adrian, Oregon. Can anyone verify that people actually live there? :)

Mmm...our lunches included tasty homemade Oreo cookies (thanks for the recipe, Krista).

We may or may not have gotten lost on this dirt road,

but we eventually ended up on this one (a tribute to my high school alma mater)

and saw this lovely site.

Oh - and I didn't forget to color in Oregon on my map!

All in all a great day and a fun adventure. :)

Karla you are so funny. I love how you say, "We may or may not have gotten lost." You are a natural blogger and contratulations on making it to Oregon!

YESSSS! I love the shout-out about the homemade oreos. I saw the picture, and I was like, "OOOH.. those look like my cookies...." And then I read the caption. You are a good blogger. I am a zombie right now. I hope Idaho is treating you both very well. Miss you guys.. and Monaco Court, of course.

Why don't you make another OHIO trip? We can show you the dental school all over again?

I love that you have a map to color in the states that you have been to.. That is a brilliant idea! I once went to Ontario Oregon right over the border from ID and I wasn't sure that anyone lived there either...

I'm glad you finally made it to my home state. Now you just need to inch a little further west to Portland (where I assure you, people do live) and I can show you around!

We have maps like that too that tell where we've both gone in the United States. Unfortunately, we have opposite maps. Mine is all east for the most part and Michael's is all west except for the part getting to Connecticut

Yeah, they do! Actually I am going to spend the next year there: I'm going for an exchange to the USA and, well, my host family is living in Adrian. I just found your blog by google.
