Rising Early

I recently made the switch at work to a 4-10 schedule which means I now wake up (too) early, but I get Monday’s off. A while back, we had one of our favorite families over for a couple days and I decided to make the most of the early morning on my day off.… Read the rest

Elijah’s First Parade

Last weekend was The Dalles Cherry Festival. Brent was on call for the weekend, so we decided to spend the weekend close to town. That turned out to be a good thing since he had to go in 3 times and once was in the middle of the night.… Read the rest
