Oregon with the Thomsons


Ali was so nice to take us all around Eugene. It was gorgeous!


This tree is 170 years plus




Al took us to these beautiful rose gardens


This is the path we walked by the river




They have the most incredible property


How would you like this as your backyard?


Cute Nicky



I just adore Nick's face in this picture


Adorable Josh


They have the coolest tire swing by their property



Go Utes!


Poor Josh was so torn between cheering between Oregon and the U, so he made this shirt. He decided that his true loyalty was to Oregon though, so he just wore his Oregon T shirt.


After the game with "rain hair"


Walking to the game. It is just breathtaking there.



I thought these two pictures were so funny. Quinn is glaring cause the Utes lost and I think that Joshie is not so happy about having to wear any Utes gear.



Matt, Quinn and I wearing our Utes gear in a sea of green and yellow. Josh stuck to his guns and wore green



I can't even express how much we love these guys!

This past weekend we went to visit my brother Matt, his wife Ali and their sons Nick and Josh in Eugene Oregon. They were so nice to have us come. We got to go all around Eugene, watch Nick and Josh's soccer games, stay up late talking, play with the boys, eat great food, laugh hysterically, catch up and go to the Utah vs. Oregon game. ( we won't talk to much about that one.) We LOVED Oregon! I really tried to talk Quinn into moving up there after we got back. It is just gorgeous county. We had so much fun. We absolutely love these guys and wish so desperately that they lived closer or that we did. It was so great to have some one on one time with my brother and his family. We don't get to see them enough. It made me so sad to leave. - Thank you guys for having us up. Thanks Ali for taking us around. Thank you Matt for driving us back up to Portland it was nice to have more time to chat. We Love you guys so much!

Looks like you guys had a blast...minus the final score but it was about time the Utes let someone else win. If you move up there I'd join you guys. I think Oregon is a beauty we don't see much in the states!!!

I am so happy to see your Oregon pictures. I have been checking every day since you got home. I love all of the pictures! -- Aren't the Oregon Thomsons wonderful? We felt the exact same way! It is so hard to say good-bye, and it is so gorgeous up there that we wanted to move. -- Looks like you had a blast!

Fun times! It looks like you had a blast. Sorry Kris, but I've gotta give you a hard time for wearing heels in PC. That's too funny! Miss and love you, of course, how could I not!

I agree; I think I could move to Oregon after being there. Your family's property looks amazing! It's too bad we didn't get to see you! I think we need to have a big party soon!
