Are we still alive?

Just barely......oh heavens, I hate body aches and headaches and sick kids when I too am sick. All I can do is pray for Josh to hurry home so I can officially go die in my bed. moan...moan

Portland Temple and Bonneville Dam

Here are the pics I promised. :)

You can see many blowup possibilities. Josh did an amazing job on the photos. I really want to put a few on the walls. :)

Here is the dam:

Feeding the fish with pellets from a .25 machine.

A bench Josh and I like. We took a picture so he could build it later. :)

A huge Sturgeon fish. There were like 5 of them in that pool that were huge and a bunch a little smaller. The kids really loved it. It was a beautiful place.

Our vacation to Portland, OR

We went to Portland this last weekend, well Thurs., Fri., Sat., and Sun. We stopped off at Multnoma Falls and stayed in a yurt at Champoeg for our first night. Friday we went to the Oregon Zoo which was awesome and stayed in a beautiful suite at Homewood Suites by Hilton. It had a living room with fold out bed and a bedroom and a kitchen. It came with a hot breakfast each morning and the room had 2 flat screen tv's and granite counter tops. What did this costs us? Only $76 a night. Screamin' deal I tell ya. Saturday we went to Ikea and bought a few little things for the kitchen and an art easel for the kiddos with paper roll. We are giving that to them for Christmas. On Sunday we went to the Portland Temple and walked the grounds which were lovely. This is Josh's favorite Temple. :) He took some gorgeous photos that we are planning on blowing up and framing if they will look nice blown up. :) We also stopped by Bonneville Dam and fed the fish and looked at some huge sturgeon. Check out our photos. We had a blast. Can't wait for our next vacation! Hopefully it won't be long before we make it down to the Grand Canyon. I haven't been yet.

Can you see the arguantan? So sweet. :)

Temple and Bonneville Dam photos soon to come!
