Experiencing Eugene - Monday

OK  - seriously - other than observe the life patterns of hotel goers - what DID we do yesterday? 

Michael and I took care of a lot of loose ends: 

  • Tricare
  • Medical appointment made
  • Tickets changed to fly next Wed (will be moved up or back depending on appointment).
  • RV storage paid for a year
  • Trailer visited
  • Sprint - revisited - hopeless; just hopeless. Yes, we've even called the headquarters...now we're resigned AND writing the Better Business Bureau.
Krista joined us for lunch and introduced us to "Burrito Boy," a Eugene original. This local chain began as a street vendor. 

We were all filled...and price is great. 

Krista took Nolan, Stacia and Zander - along with Taleena- to experience Eugene. They slid down the "Giant O"....

Played in the fountain, romped around....Mom and Dad T and Michael and I joined them after we'd run our separate errands. 

Beautiful Views

Will (my brother) and I used to play on this whale over 45 years ago! LOL  

Shelton-McMurphy-Johnson House built in 1888 - now a museum 

And look what I found when searching online for photos..a connection 

The Cogswell-Miller house was built by Cogswell in 1884 for his daughter DeEtta. 

Actually, Eugene Skinner (namesake of Park and City) is a relative of some sort....sort of fun to visit and think about legacy.  I wonder what he'd think of the unique flavor of Eugene these days. LOL 

The kids had a blast. We returned to Sprint to continue our discussion about Krista's phone....what a run-around. 

We came back to the hotel to swim in the outdoor pool - really refreshing.... Bre joined us for dinner at Applebees and we headed to Eugene to see if we could catch Mom G - couldn't.  We spent a bit of time with Bre at her apartment and headed home. 

Choosing Joy!
