crazy weekend

this weekend we got a ton done. on saturday, justin and i got everything boxed up and moved out of our house. thats right, our house is empty. we had originally planned to leave some stuff like an air mattress, bike and stuff for me to use while i lived there for these last few days, but changed our minds while we were packing to just take everything out at once while we had the big truck. this way i wouldnt have to make multiple trips this week to finish hauling up our stuff. so after 12 hours of packing and loading, we finally finished our house at 11pm. we drove back up to my aunts house, again not in the original plans, to go sleep in a real bed.

we unloaded everything sunday, with the help of my fam, into my grandmas garage. i must say, it drove me crazy that after 12 hours of work the day before, we had the entire thing unloaded and ready to go in like an hour and a half. not that i wanted it to take all day again, but it seems like all our hard work was undone in seconds. but, its all unpacked and on to the cleaning!
our memorial day bald eagle we sawthen we got to go fishing with my family on the columbia gorge, which is absolutely beautiful, for shad. this is a fun fish to go for because we only go when there is tons of them heading up the river, and we use them as bait for other fish like halibut and tuna. so when we go, it is almost guaranteed to catch stuff. i think we finished the day wit like 16 total fish. so fun.
and we have also taken up playing doubles in tennis with my aunt and uncle. it has turned into boys vs. girls, but since the first time we played, us girls have been on a losing streak. despite our killer 4 game come back last night, we still lost all three games. i think we need to continue our lessons and maybe get some practice time with out the boys there to help hone our skills!

What a fun time! I have only been fishing like once in my life. Jake's been hoping to take it up. What a great shot of the eagle!

sounds like a hectic but fun weekend. i hate packing and unpacking! i think if we ever lived in the same area we'd be more than blog friends cuz it seems like we like to do the same things. bike, run, travel to cool places...we're just going out to play tennis right now! you guys would probably beat us though. good luck with the move.

Hey Kelly,
For old times sake, remember when we parked side by side and I crawled out of my trunk in San Diego, hilarious! Sounds like you are one buzzy chick and still has time to have fun. Love ya, Julie Allred

Your blogspot is adorable, I love it. Life is great, I'll be graduating in a few weeks from the nursing program and will be joining the working field, scary! How are you liking Oregon?
