Sorosis Park in The Dalles

With the weather being in the 80’s for a couple days here in The Dalles, I decided it was a good chance to put the kiddo in shorts and go to Sorosis park early in the morning. Apparently, I am the only parent that thought of taking their little one at 9 in the morning.… Read the rest

Parade Time

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

An Oregon Run

Brent and I were able to go on a chilly yet beautiful run the other morning in The Dalles. I ran up a hill to gain about 1000 feet. It felt great and the view was beautiful. It is a great way to start my training as it is a fresh start.… Read the rest
