Oregon 2010

Second summer at the coast of Oregon. 
Went with some girlfriends and our kids. 
he just walked right up to our campsite
 the Oregon coast has some amazing scenery. 
This was just outside of Canon Beach

 the surfer babes
 did lots of crocheting
this dune screamed out "climb me!"
I literally had to crawl up, but I made it !!
In BC there is a campfire ban but in Oregon we had a fire every night

It was alot of fun hanging out with just the girls.  We ate Maxine's amazing food,  shopped in  thrift stores, surfed, played in the water and did alot of exploring.  It was very relaxing.

Peace Keeper In Indonesia

My father-in-law finally received his medal today for keeping the peace in Indonesia after WW2. Japanese people living in remote areas of Indonesia were unaware that the war was over and so, many soldiers were sent to protect the Indonesians.   No more fighting was necessary.
I'm so proud of him!!

Stuck up chicken

stuck up chicken
Have you ever tried this way of cooking a chicken?  It is the easiest way to produce a cooked chicken  that is juicy and delicious!! It's cooked on the BBQ so when its really hot outside its the perfect meal. You have to  try it.
