Satisfying Saturday

Our days are full when we are in Oregon. We had a plan in CA - everyone knew where we were and those who wanted to see us would let us know, and we'd find a time. That plan worked well and is working in spades in OR, as well.  Sherri, my sister-in-law, suggested we meet for coffee at 0730 in Creswell. We enjoyed an hour and a half of hot drinks and visiting. She stopped in at The Caboose and picked Stacia up at 0900 and then went on to pick up Harmony (her granddaughter, Stacia's "cousin") at 0930. Harmony didn't know Stacia was spending the day with them, and it sounds like it was a very pleasant surprise.  Stacia enjoys playing with Harmony - the younger sister she doesn't have. I didn't take any pictures of cousin time.

Michael and I got a few things done at The Caboose, and then we went over to Will and Sherri's and visited for an hour before coming home with Stacia.

Cory, Arielle's guy, stopped by and we spent a couple of hours getting to know each other better. While four of us visited, these two played, "The Game."

We headed over to the parks along the river when Arielle got off work. BreZaak decided to join us - I wondered if a nice walk in nature along the river would encourage Bella to come investigate the wider world. Meanwhile, Krista was at a rousing party and got a great core workout in too. ::wink::

We used to play on this whale when I was a kid back in the 1960's. There are photos of the kids on the whale here from 2014
