The girls and I jumped at the chance of going back to Hermiston with Pop and Uncle Ben last weekend! We had a great time! Swimming, eating lots of popsicles, and just relaxing!

I made Ainzlee's bean bag chair first, and oh my heck was it a challenge!! I had a really hard time reading the pattern! But I did finish it before we moved!
The moment we unpacked the trailer and Rae saw Ainlzee's bean bag chair, she wanted one! I finally got it all finished!! RaeLynn's did go a lot better because of all the changes I made! It was so much fun! I also made an inside liner that is water proof, so the beans won't get wet. And I can wash the other outside liner!
Even though they both have their own and they are completely different, they still fight over each others. Isn't it funny!
I would really like some feed back on what you think about the chairs! I was thinking about making my own pattern and selling it or even selling the chairs already made! Would you buy one, or a pattern! I could also personalize them with initials like I did on the girl's chairs. On Ainzlee's I used two different cotton patterns and one minky! Rae's has 2 minky, and one cotton! I do like Rae's a little bit better because the minky makes it so soft! Please let me know what you think!

Friday we headed to Hermiston last miunte!! On the way we stop at the Fish Hatchery and saw a ton of sturgeon, and rainbow trout! We also saw Herman the sturgeon who is over 7 feet long, and very old!(sorry no pics of Herman) The girls had a blast!
Saturday we hang out around pop and grammy's house! Later that even we went to the Umatilla County Fair and Rodeo Parade!! It was the never ending parade, but the kids had a blast and loaded up on tons of candy!! Hermiston is famous for its watermelons, so if you ever have a chance to get one, do it!! The are SO YUMMY!!
The whole reason we went to Hermiston was to be there for Sunday because Benjamin was being ordained an Elder! Thanks Ben for inviting us to take part in such an awesome accomplishment. Bummer Derek and Stephanie weren't able to be there, because this was last minute and they are in Georgia visiting her family! But we are excited to see them in a couple of weeks when Benjamin will be going through the temple! See everyone soon!!

Saturday afternoon we drove to a little town in Washington called Kalama. I had no idea why we were going there but Stuart was pretty excited to surprise us, well me! He took us to the school where Twilight was filmed! This is just where the outside of the school was filmed. It was pretty fun! There is a flyer with all the spots marked and what scene is where. It was a lot of fun! Then of course we had to come home and watch the movie!!
Mural when they walked into the field and she tells him she knows he is a vampire.
