Our days back in Redmond have been filled with family, friends,errands and beautiful snow capped views of the mountains.
Finally a sunny day so captured Three Sisters and Mt Jefferson.
Hope fixed a tasty dinner and beat us at game of scrabble. A beautiful view of Smith Rock from deck. The home remodeling is done and what a difference from last September. They have done a very nice job and still lots to do on outside buildings..projects in the works. We have attended several of the grandsons ballgames and practice, visited all the animals including Cade's 4 pigs, Colt's steer and the two horses Rocky and Katy. Will post photos later. Grandsons are showing at Deschutes County Fair in August. Can't get over how Cade and Colt have grown since September. Will post pictures of them later, also.

On the 18th we went over to our good friends, Alinda and Ernie for dinner. As always Alinda prepared a delicious meal of fried chicken, asparagus,salad and a most unusual potato dish. An evening of wine, dinner, conversation and time with the doggies Rodyo and Buffy. They have a lovely, inviting and warm home filled with many western art themed pictures and objects. There yard of many flowers, bushes and other plants a gardeners paradise. Alinda gave me a jacket made from a sweatshirt..very different and innovative. She is so creative in her artistic ability as is Ernie in his many horseshoe items ranging from a lampstand, to kleenex holder, to outdoor plant stands. Should have taken some photos. We always enjoy our time with them.
Thank you dear friends for a wonderful visit.
