Birthday Fun in Scenic Eastern Oregon

We've had another fun weekend traveling and seeing Andy's family.  I celebrated my birthday (the 9th) with a big chocolate cake in Troy, OR at John Fogerty's river house.  We drove our camper down to sleep in since we had a house full!  Even Roy & Rebecca were able to come. The back deck of the house overlooks the river and it had a really cool "Hillbilly" hot tub and juniper pole rocking chair.  Andy had me take lots of pictures so he could try to make them here :)

Mallory's birthday (the 10th) brought another chocolate cake and Mallory Family Reunion potluck later that night. 

We left Troy on Sunday and drove to Wallowa Lake.  Along the way we passed an amazing circular barn, the ghost town of Flora, OR and the beautiful Eagle Cap Wilderness near Wallowa Lake.  It was fun to show the kids where Andy & I used to play in college and got engaged at the lake. 

Roy & Becca came with us and are spending the week here.  Drew walked across the stream balancing on a log to earn a milkshake and Mally had fun making "Sand Angels" along Ice Creek. 

Drew had his braces put on last week in Bend and he has not complained at all, despite not being able to eat Grandma Kate's rice krispie treats.  He is getting so big!

We're trying to get Roy & Becca to the Oregon Coast while they are here, but one of Andy's football players is in critical condition after an ATV accident last weekend.  He may need to be here this weekend to help with a fundraiser & football practice so our plans are not sure yet.  We still have more camping trips to squeeze in before Andy starts football in mid-August...only 4 weeks of summer left!
