Beach Babe Getaway

Just returned from a fun weekend with my Beach Babe friends. Instead of the beach we headed to central Oregon - the Bend/Sisters area. We had a lovely condo at Eagle Crest thanks to Julie's timeshare membership. Unfortunately I have no photos to share. I took my camera but it had a dead battery - oops!

Since Patrice, one of the babes, had recently broken her foot we stayed pretty quiet and just enjoyed being together and talking. We did make a afternoon trip into Sisters where we did a little shopping - no Beach Babe get together is ever complete with out some shopping. I love the quilt store in Sisters and spent some time drooling over beautiful fabrics. I did pick up a few pieces to make some surprises for my girls for Christmas - no telling!

We enjoyed a couple of cute movies - Mrs Pettygrew Lives for the Day and Baby Mama, some good food, a game of Five Crowns and lots of good conversation. There was no wireless at the condo so I went through a little withdraw of not having computer access but it was good for me!

Jim and Tessa survived their weekend without me. With ballet rehearsal all day Saturday - 9:30 - 4:00 and a high school football game Friday night Jim was home alone quite a bit. He enjoyed watching conference on Saturday and taping it for Tessa and I to watch during the week (unfortunately the condo didn't get cable) Sunday he and Tessa watched one session with Grandma and Grandpa Best.

Jim had a yummy pork chop dinner ready for me when I returned home Sunday afternoon.

College Kid Update:
Clark spent the weekend in Salt Lake at his roommate Ted's house enjoying conference with his buddies.

Logan headed up to Logan (Utah) Friday night for the football game and then back to Provo for conference. He watched Saturday sessions at his apartment, one of them with Cali and then attended Priesthood with the Boothe boys and then went to dinner with them. Sunday, Logan headed down to Spanish Fork for the morning session and breakfast with the Boothe family - thank you Boothe's! He and Cali then went over to Wynn and Emily's for the afternoon session and food! Thank you Wynn and Emily for once again taking good care of our kids!!

Posters for Homecoming Spectacular went up all over campus this week - Logan is the second from the left. The Young Ambassadors will be performing.

Willy Wonka rehearsals are heating up for Tessa. Show opens in two weeks. Tessa is enjoying her voice lessons with Jay (Cali and Logan's teacher) she started a couple of weeks ago and last week when I picked her up Jay was very complimentary - saying that her two siblings have nothing over her! Think I may need to stay and listen next week.

Beach Babe weekend...I need one of those! Having no internet is a drag but I know what you does us good to not have it at our fingertips sometimes. Makes us get out there and enjoy life more instead of reading or writing about it.

We just got back late last night from your part of the country. I just fell in love with WA but over the two (OR/WA), hubby prefers OR. We found a possible business to purchase near Roseburg, in Oakland actually. We are looking for an RV park to purchase and there is a beautiful one for sale off the 5. My husband spent alot of time on the phone with the broker today and she is supposed to email us some information tonight. I don't think the business is making any money right now as the owner is not marketing it at all. She is a widow who owns two other businesses and doesn't want to run the park, says she doesn't like being there and is not a people person. This place is beautifully maintained and has so much uncapped potential...we'll see! If we ever become neighbors, we'll have to get together for lunch sometime!

I have already requested my poster as a surprise for my girl!! We love having your kids over, it was the perfect way to end a sad weekend for Jacky. Wynn and Ward have been in New Mexico since Wednesday and she was missing them badly. But perked right up at the mention of Logan and Cali's names. The count down in beginning in our home for November 1st! Good Luck Tess, we can't wait to see and hear you!
