Well, several things have happened in the last two weeks that I have taken pictures of so I thought I would share them all with you. First off, a little over a week ago, the whole Student Ministries staff (including the college dept.) took a staff retreat to beautiful Sun River. Here we all are working very hard. :)
Then on Thursday I went to Trader Joes with my former roommate (who also got engaged and married while we lived together) whom I haven't seen in a very long time. It so good to hang out with her and do some catch up.
Friday was a beautiful day and I got to spend a part of it driving to and from Paper Zone down town. I also wore a turtle neck sweater (typical Oregon weather, it started out raining and chilli, I should have known better). I look kinda mad, but I'm not. I'm just trying to look like I'm paying attention to the road.
I also got some pictures of the flowers around my apartment. My good friend Jenny came over Friday afternoon and we hung out and did some catching up too. It was great fun. Look at us all ready for that wonderful warm weather (we tried sitting by the pool but it was too windy and cold so we had to go back in and get warm; we're dorks...or at least I am)
Saturday was another beautiful day and we took advantage of that during the morning hours by doing service projects all around Gresham with the High school students and an older group called the M&M's (I don't know what that stands for, I should find that out). It was great fun and we had a pretty good turn out. My group went to Shepherds Door and pulled weeds, edged the lawn, planted trees and all sorts of other fun lawn maintenance stuff.
Sunday, again, was absolutly georgous (I feel like a broken record, but we haven't seen the sun like this for awhile) so I had to take advantage of it again. After having lunch with the fam (burgers outside on the grill) I went and hiked up Angels Rest which is in the Gorge. Which by the way is one of the best hiking area's in the US. :) But, OH, my goodness, Angel's Rest is one of the most beautiful hikes. It's not too hard and it has such amazing views from all different points on the hike. Of course the best one's are on the top (look, you can see my hands in my glasses, weird).
Phew...there ya go everyone. Sorry there were so many pictures but I just didn't have time to put them up as I took them. And sorry I'm so weird with taking pictures of myself...well, actually, I'm not sorry. If you know me at all, you know that's just how I am. I've never been camera shy. Maybe I should work on that a bit. :)
Love you all!
