My parents and uncle are in town! Hooray! I created a spreadsheet with a huge list of activities, restaurants, and menus. I also promised not to over-schedule stuff and to wing it! So far, it's going well. Their jet lag is gone, and they are not melting in the warm weather.
Activities so far: Hike and picnic at Jack Creek, horse racing in Prineville (I won three races. Everyone else won, too!), Multnomah Falls, Bonneville Dam and Hatchery, lunch and shopping in Hood River, Motor Maids Parade, quick stop at Drake Park, and fruit stand stops in Hood River and Sisters (marionberries!). Next up: hanging out in Bend and showing them why we love it here.

|New recipe: Roasted beet salad|
|This is the way our picnics roll: pickled green beans (thank you, Annie), panzanella, and roasted beet salad!|

|Herman the Sturgeon. 70 years old and super active.|
|He's pretty amazing to watch. Quite graceful.|
