Troy and I decided to head on over to the Canyon County fair after work to see the Uncle Kracker concert.
But first, I wanted to see the animals...to me that's what the fair is all about. Watching the kids groom and show their animals, the smell and those cute faces!
The concert was terrific!
He put on a great, and long, show. Very impressed!
Having fun, just the two of us. The boys will be back home from their California vacation this weekend. So we are squeezing out the last few days of it being just us. Seriously though...we can't wait to get them back!
We had a blast! We don't do the carnival rides and games, Just watching everything spin around kind of makes us feel sick, but it is all so colorful and exciting. Especially at night!
First stop on our second day was Wheeler, OR. It wasn't a stop we had planned, but I asked Troy if he could pull over and I'm so glad we did. When I saw the name of this town I knew just the right thing to get my neighbor that was keeping an eye on the house and watching our dog. Their last name is Wheeler...
Such history and charm....
and the flowers...beautiful!
Great lunch at Driftwood...
Insomnia Coffee House.
I love how they used the old doors for the bar.

The old jail and now the Oregon Film museum. It was also in the movie Goonies and Kindergarden Cop.
These the most amazing hydrangeas I've ever seen!
The huge rocks all along the coast are amazing!
The second day of our trip was so much fun! We drove all over and looked around. Troy's thing this trip was to drive up to the highest point he could so we could see the view. It was overcast most of the day and the weather did crazy things to my hair...Haha! But so relaxing and nice to get away from the heat.
Never know what wildlife you might see on the river

“…so that they [older women] may encourage [or train] the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored [blasphemed or discredited].” Titus 2:3-5
"Cast your burden upon the Lord, and He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be shaken." Psalm 55:22
