Weekend Trip and Family

We had a great weekend in Eastern Oregon!!! Sunshine, a little rain and this scary fog/heavy snow on your way home over Mt. Hood. You could barely see the center line!!! Good thing it was late and very little traffic.

Now, for the fun stuff! We stopped in Warm Springs and went through the museum, something we have been wanting to do for a long time. Very nice museum, and since they were closing at noon it was free! We did make a donation, we feel very strongly about keeping local museums open.

This is the front door of a store in Prineville, Oregon. I want it on my house!!!!

I had been asked to set up a booth at this Festival in Bend last month. Unfortunately, I had to decline. Thirty day was just not enough time to fabricate enough pieces when you work full time. Maybe next time.

Now to the Family!!! Last month it was Uncle Shorty's birthday, this month is Aunt Naomi's birthday. So off to Prineville we went for a family visit and great southern food. And Uncle Shorty had finished my antelope painting!!! Paint me HAPPY!!!! This painting is now hanging in my studio. Love it!! Thanks Uncle Shorty!!!!

Just look at all that great food!! Ribs, Beans, Corn on the Cobb, Potato Salad, Strawberries!

And what would a southern meal be with out sweet tea? Is there a better way to spend an evening? Good food and family ?


  1. Oh, its such a small world Evie. We almost bought a house at Northwest Crossing, but decided on River Rim instead.
    Its a lovely area.
    Lovely pictures with family time. I love that front door too!

  2. Is there anything better than ribs and all the fixin's...makes my mouth water. Love the front door...wouldn't that make a statement.

  3. Debbie, I was thinking about you as we wondered around Bend and Prineville last weekend. We'll have to check out River Rim next time were in Bend. I know well be heading that way for the Madras rock show around the 4th of July.
    Sandi, the food was yummy!!! Aunt Naomi is a fantastic cook and time with family is priceless! Debbie, I's sure you've enjoyed the view point above Prineville many times, but Sandi I wish you could enjoy it! In March I stood there for 30min just enjoying the view. Snow, valley, mountains and of course the Court House. This time no snow but everything was still green, amazing view. I'm excited to visit in July, my guess, greens, golds and a very blue sky. I think I'm living in the wrong part of Oregon.

  4. Looks like you have been having a great time! Love a Family feast :)

  5. Evie, what a joy to spend good time with family. I know it is a little late but I truly hope you ha d a wonderful Easter, regards, T. :)

  6. Yes Evie, I have been to the point as well! I'm going to be in Bend in August, wouldn't it be fun to see each other!
    :-) We only have 3 more summers before we are back there full time...can't wait!

  7. Emma, we had a great time!!

    T, Thanks we had a great Easter! Hope you did also! Waiting for this weekend and the Royal Wedding too.

    Debbie, Let me know when you'll be in Oregon and we'll see what we can do!
