Timbers Vs. Galaxy

Today Emily and I finally had friends over to our place way out in Washington.  Conrad, Tom and Andrea and Katie and Arley all stopped by to watch the Timbers Game with us.    It was great to see the Timbers beat the Galaxy and it was nice to see friends in our place.  We are talking to a financial advisor in 2 weeks to see what it will take for us to get a house in Portland.  It will be good to be social again and closer to our friends in the city.  We watched a few episodes of Tosh before everyone left around 4pm and Emily and I were left to enjoy the final episode of Breaking Bad by ourselves.

Disc Golf BBQ

Emily and I drove down to Corvallis this weekend for Layne’s Disc Golf BBQ at Adair Park.  It was mostly Watershed people and after a rough couple weeks at work I was very happy that nobody talked about work.  The food was great with Colin bringing tuna, Tully bringing ribs and a lot of sides.  We played horseshoes, the block game that Amy Jo and Loomis love and even got a round of disc in with Mischa, Tim, and Loomis in before heading back to Danielle’s for a chill night of movies and wine.  

In the morning Danielle, Emily and I met up at Jason and Jen’s for brunch where she had prepared waffles, eggs, bacon, etc for us.  Yum!  It’s always a pleasure hanging out with them and Emily and I are really looking forward to our annual Thanksgiving trip with them to Sunriver.  It was also great seeing Colin, Amanda and little Ruby who I’m always happy to get a smile from.  Thanks to Layne for another great BBQ as well!

Blaine County Fair

This weekend Emily and I joined Arley, Katie, Ryan, Erin, Ian, Eric, Caitlin, Eric Porter and others from Watershed Quantum Spatial on a trip out to Blaine County where Annie's family now holds the annual fair on their farm.  I had a pretty shitty week at work but Caitlyn's birthday party on Friday at Eric's had cheered me up a bit and I decided to go to the fair as well and I'm glad I did as it turned out to be a good time.

Deschutes River 2013

This weekend Emily and I joined a group of around 20 people from around Oregon to raft the Deschutes River as we do every summer now.  Ben and Bryan organized the trip as usual and despite a few injuries, a few blackouts, a ticket and a lost wedding band we all had a great time in the sunny, warm skies of Central Oregon.
