Miss Oregon 2014 Parade

Saturday, June 28, 2014

Friday's drive to Seaside was quite wet and when I got to Seaside I immediately got soaked. This morning didn't look too bad, but I bought a rain resistant coat early this morning with a hood just in case. Thankfully it wasn't quite as wet today as yesterday although my friend, Liz, said she got absolutely soaked while waiting for the parade to start.

Here is Liz as she moved through the parade route.



And here she is earlier in the week with another beautiful Douglas County Oregon girl



And here she is from earlier in the week while performing her talent



Now I am off for the final event with my fingers crossed for Liz to become the new Miss Oregon.

BSG Challenge Week 4 Blog

Wednesday, June 25, 2014

Our blog assignment for this week's BSG challenge is: How do you cope with the hot temperatures & still stay active?



I am such a fun in the sun type of person that I actually don't have much of a problem coping with the hot temperatures while staying active during the summer. I love being outdoors, and there are new activities that I enjoy during the summer.

Yoga and/or Qigong moves outdoors

Swimming in the outdoor pool and/or rivers

Biking

Hiking in the beautiful North Umpqua River areas

So, staying active during the warm summer days is not a problem for me. You just have to stay hydrated.

Week 3 BSG Challenge - Summer Plans

Tuesday, June 24, 2014

This week's Aspire and Inspire BSG blog challenge lead questions are ... Vacation plans this summer? What type of activities are planned, any sightseeing?

At this point my only summer plans are to go to Seaside, Oregon to watch the Miss Oregon pageant for two days.



While at Seaside my activities will include walking the Prom, attending the Miss Oregon parade



and watching the Miss Oregon Pageant in support of my dear friend, Liz, and hopefully watching her be crowned.



On Sunday, after the Miss Oregon is crowned, I will drive back home and prepare for my second leg of my vacation which I will leave on the following day. I fly to Ontario, California on June 30th. My daughter will pick me up and then on July 1st my daughter, grandson and I will drive to Phoenix, Arizona.

On the agent at Phoenix, is a 5 to 6 day stay at resort. While at the resort, our activities will be in the pool and water park





I am sure there will also be lots of other activities included such as walking. I will be having lunch one day with Bill's sister and brother in law who live in the area, and one night my granddaughter wants to have us over to her place for dinner. I feel confident that I will make healthy choices for both of these.

My daughter and grandson are health conscious so we are planning on an active, but healthy vacation filled with lots of fun and happy memories.

    I took my DH and four kids to Seaside one summer as part of a upper West Coast vacation. We rented a house about 3 blocks from the beach and had a ball. They particularly enjoyed a hike from the beach through a highly wooded area. (I don't remember the name.) We also loved a side trip to the Talamook cheese factory for cheese and ice cream!
