Corn Maze time! #baggenstos @samantha_macbeth

Today, Tyler met his favorite travel icon, Rick Steves. Rick Steves was on tour throughout Oregon to advocate for our upcoming ballot measure No. 91 for the decriminalization of marijuana for recreational use. We were quite impressed with his speech and message. A transcript of part of his speech can be found here:

We recommend it to any interested in the debate, and would like to encourage our Oregon readers to send in your ballot this November!

This little lady of mine requested to see an Oregon lighthouse, so obviously we had to go search one out.

Tyler has been bouldering training since February, and over the weekend he got to prove his skills.  His gym hosted the Portland Bouldering Rally for over 400 climbers.  He challenged himself entering into the V4-V5 scale.  Bouldering “V” scale is currently from V0-V16.  

I have a terrible view from my office at the legal clinic.

Last night we went on a date night and had wonderful Thai food followed up by some Lion King power ballads and reenactments of childhood memories jumping on the couch to Crocodile Rock. Sir Elton John played all the hits for over 2.5 straight hours. He and his fellow 60 year-old band mates had more endurance and energy in them than we did at half their age.   

Also a few months ago my co-worker and I arranged a deal with Quinceanera Magazine.  We will be featured in it a few times a year.  This definitely wasn’t on my list of future art jobs while in school; but hey, it is being seen by thousands.

I have recently been allowed to make custom patterns at my job, along with designing the packaging. More patterns to come.

Over the weekend we went on a last minute camping trip, in hopes of seeing the so-called “northern lights”.  The aurora magnetic line was to have dropped far south; yet staying up late in the cold we never saw any glowing ribbons in the sky.   

At least we had an enjoyable adventure and wonderful view of Mt. Hood. Looks like we just need to travel to Iceland to see the real deal.

The shot above is Mt. Hood illuminated by the moon at 12:00am, and the shot below is Mt. Hood illuminated by the sun at 12:00pm. 

Our camping group.  As you can see Jason and Tyler are still sullen after not seeing any “northern lights”. Highly disappointing.
