So after our Summer semester had ended and finals were over we were able to fly down to Matt's house for a week. It was a really fun trip and we did a lot of neat stuff. The bad thing was we both got really bad colds while we were there it was awful. We were totally exhausted all day and I couldnt breathe. I was using some Zicam, don't ever use this its awful! I lost my taste for a day and a half, I mean I literally could not taste anything which was extremely awful :( It made me even more depressed about being sick. Anyways i got it back luckily, there were tons of cases were people lost their smell and taste for months! that would just be soo awful. So I refuse to ever use Zicam again. Anyways here is a "taste" of what we did.
We got to drive around in the Jag which is always fun and the weather was so nice we could even put the top down.
We played with Shadow, she loves going for walks, and going to the park to play fetch, and she just loves Matt. When Matt was younger they picked her out at the pound and saved her. She is such a sweet dog and she is getting more and more used to me :).
We spent way too much money at the Nike Store, but check out our sweet new kicks which I am in love with!
I got the new MacBook Pro!! Happy Early Christmas to me :)
We went and did these awesome Jet Boat rides at Hellgate, they were really fun.
We played in the gift shop.
I tried to find a small patch of shade, it was so hot!
Our next stop was Ashland were they have a Shakespeare Festival. We saw Don Quixote (yes its not Shakespeare). We left at intermission it wasnt that great but the theatre and the experience was awesome.
We ate a really yummy dinner at a place called Mucho Gusto before the play and Matt and I got a Caramel Apple later for dessert mmm apple pie caramel appple :)
I had to try the Natural Lithia Water, which was all bubbly and tasted like sulfur, so nasty!
The next part of our trip was a drive along the beautiful Oregon coast, it was so pretty.
It was all foggy and misty it was cool. Plus I got to put on my new jacket from the Nike store :)
I wanted a picture by the whale
We got to stay at a really sweet hotel. We had a huge hotel room to ourselves and it even had a fireplace! Here's the room
In this picture you can see my new friend Douglas, we got him at Harry and David along with tons of other goodies.
Here we are shopping at Harry and David.
The next day we played at the beach.
And we went to the Yaquina Head Lighthouse which is the lighthouse they filmed in the ring. The lighthouse was way cool, but there were millions of nasty flies, they were seriously everywhere! At one point we were walking around and one buzzed in my ear I let out an ear piercing scream and scared everyone haha it was funny.
Probably my favorite picture haha
And last but not least we got some yummy salt water taffy, my favorite flavor is watermelon :)
Making the taffy.
We had such a fun trip and were sad to leave. Luckily we started to get better from being sick. Thanks so much Mom and Dad Ekman for a fun and much needed trip!!
