A Little Getaway

Ahhh, all rested up from our mini getaway.
I think one of the things I love most about getting away is coming home.
I love to be home.
I love my bed.
I love routine.
I just love familiarity.

So.
We spent a couple of days in Sunriver last week.
Jeremy had a conference to attend, and the girls and I had a free schedule, so away we went!

It just so happens that Papa {Jeremy's Gramps} was there for the same conference . . .
. . . and it was his birthday!

We had a nice little BBQ gathering at our place.
What a lovely evening.
Perfect weather.
Perfect company.

And before I go any further . . .
I was still without Miss Lily.
So all of the following photos were taken with my iPhone {and a couple with one of my very first digital cameras}.  It's not about the quality, it's about the memories {I have had to repeat this to myself many a time over the last couple of weeks}.


 Papa and his Great Granddaughters

We found the coolest little nest right outside our door.
We tried not to disturb the Mama too much, but every time we'd leave the house, she'd fly out,
perch in a tree, and keep her eye on our every move.
I didn't blame her.

There was a little of this from Tay . . .

And a little of this for the rest of everyone:

Hawaiian Shave Ice . . . the perfect accompaniment to an 88 degree day.

We even took a little drive up to Crane Prairie ~
One of Jeremy's most favorite spots.

 There's Miss Kenners, and my Mama-in-law, snappin' away at the beautiful scenery.

Yep, it was a much needed little vacay.
And now we are happy to be home.
In our own beds :)

Nothing is better than your own bed, except maybe your own shower!

Vacations are fun though. It looks like you guys had a great time!

A little getaway is always nice!! But I understand too that there's no place like home :) Nice non-Lily pictures.

We got home from our trip last night and I could not wait to sleep in my bed!
