Reminiscing at Silver Falls

Silver Falls State Park is where Adam and I had our first date six years ago today. We hiked around the park for ten hours (we got lost) and only saw one water fall. Adam said that he has never been that lost in his entire life. I like to tell him he had to get lost in order to find me! Needless to say it was a memorable experience. We got engaged at Silver Falls exactly one year after our first date there. We hiked the whole trail and didn't get lost once!

Since it was our six year anniversary of our first date, we decided to take Anna back to where it all began.
Sweet baby

This is where we got engaged, Lower south falls. It was such a magical moment. As soon as we were under the falls Adam was down on one knee! I could not of picked a more perfect spot! It was so much fun to share are special spot with Anna.

Anna loved the waterfalls!

My little toddler.

Anna is officially a toddler! Yikes where did the time go.
We recently got a Little Tikes play cube for Anna and it has been a life saver. She plays on this thing everyday. Climbing up and down and million times a day. If only I had that much energy!!!
Anna is now an amazing walker. Once she decided she was gong to walk there was no stopping her. In the last two weeks she went from crawling as her main form of transportation to walking every where. She looks like a drunk sailor when she walks. She bumps into things and falls down often. She doesn't seem to mind though, she just picks herself up and starts walking again.
Anna has learned a few more words. When she sees a dog she will saw bow wow, so cute. When she sees a cat (Addison) she does a high pitched sequel. I think she is making the meow noise loud enough to git Addisons attention. She says Yea, Hi, Wee, and Ut Oh. She can point to her noise when asked to do so and can bring things to Adam and I. There has been so much development in the last month. I can't wait to see what the next few months bring.
Anna is 13 going on 14 months now! Time is just flying by.

Hey there Dahlia

One of my favorite parts of the Dahlias were their names!
So pretty! They look like tissue paper Pompoms.

One of my favorites - Maui sunburst!

It's rare that I get to see my sweet little angel sleeping. The other day I went to go check on her during her nap and she was fast asleep. I took the opportunity to take a few pictures of my sleeping beauty.

Last days of summer

Enjoying the park and the sunshine while it last!

Hood to Coast Relay.

Adam was the fist runner. He started at Mt Hood. I ran second coming down the mountain. You might think it is easy running down hill, but I am telling you it is NOT! Adam got the biggest blister I have ever seen from his down hill run. If it was me with that blister I would of tapped out of the race. We packaged up Adams foot really well and he ran another 10 miles.

Some how I ended up with the 3rd hardest runs in the race. I really wanted to trade with Adam (He got one of the easiest runs) but after his blister incident, I had to dig deep and pull it off. The whole time I was running I kept thinking about a van that passed me. They wrote on the van "Suck it up and run", so that is what I did!

Adam and I after running our first leg of the race. Adam ran 5.45 and I ran 5.67 miles.

Adam with his Hood to coast tat!
The best pancake place ever! Or maybe I was just so hungry for real food that it taste like the best food ever! Let me tell you I was definitely Pig'n!

Below is some of the team that ran in Van 2. Sadly we didn't get to see much of them along the race.

At Seaside! Below Adam and Kurt.
We did it WooooHoooooo!

All the babies greeting their Mommies and Daddies at the beach, got me longing to see mine. I am so grateful for Grandma Susie and Grandpa Ken who watched our little sweetie. It made me feel good knowing she was home with people who love and care for her! Anna did really well by the way. She was a little trouper while Mommy and Daddy were off having adventures.
