leg one: bend to eugene.

headed over mckenzie pass and enjoyed the scenic route to eugene, oregon on friday! it was pretty amazing, the views were so beautiful, and we were welcomed with open arms by the one and only tortuga. it was so great to be there and celebrate all three of us being unemployed by having one of the last extravagant meal for an undetermined amount of time. we ate at belly, and the food and wine was anything but easy to forget.

check out those sweet rides... 

 exploring the top of the "sea of lava" and enjoying the views

who knew there was a lookout point at the top? aka badass lava rock castle (whaaatt??!)

aaahhh, the glory of walking through the alleys of eugene

tortuga and parker getting their bronze on

and yes, the badminton skills were showed off.

aaron, we love you! thanks for kicking off our road trip with a bang!
we will never forget watching the sandlot in our outdoor movie theatre...
oiling and lotioning, and oiling and lotioning!
 i can't take it anymore!!

house camping.

okay, so we are officially house camping. the parents have come and gone in a whirlwind, and we are left with nothing but our camping supplies and stuff to clean the house. thursday is coming faster then we imagined, which is our goal for leaving bend... hopefully we will make it happen! this week has been hectic, trying to fit as much of the fun stuff in between the stuff that needs to be done. 
here is a little taste of what we have been doing... 

watching bike races

drinking delicious coffee from backporch

going away parties with babies on bikes

lake lovelies

and flying cars!

bend is so good to us, we are really going to miss it!

packing day.

so... we are packing! packing for the move, the trip, and everything in between. its lots of work! funny how much you can accumulate over a few years, no matter how small the house. thank goodness for family that is helping us move, i don't know what we would do without them! 

the beginning of many more boxes to come... 

shout out to the makers of TOMS shoes! i wouldn't have as many boxes if you weren't so darn popular.
well, back to packing!
i'm excited to share the adventures to come!
