Truck Shopping with Mom & Dad Cheek

Last weekend Kelly's folks came down for a visit and to shop for a new truck. We took them to the GMC dealer at noon and we walked to town for a few hours. When we got back to the dealership, we though they would be about done with their business.....WRONG! We sat there and waited three more hours while they finished the deal and signed all the paperwork. We finally left with the new truck at 5:00.

Camping At East Lake

Our Campsite

Sunday afternoon we drove down to the Newberry National Monument to camp at East Lake with our friends Dave & Norman. Newberry is an extinct volcano and there are two lakes in the sunken caldera, Paulina and East. We really like camping at East Lake for it's beauty and the fact that it's only 35 minutes south of Bend. Even though it's so close to town, not that many people seem go there. The camp sites are also really hugh, so unlike the homes in Bend, you feel like you actually have some space from your neighbors.

Tumalo Mountain Hike

Thursday it was 103 degrees in Bend, so we decided to head to the mountains where it would be cooler. We hiked up Tumalo Mt. in the afternoon when it was only about 95.....

Here are a few photos from the past week. The morning of the 4th, we went to the Pet Parade downtown with some friends. That evening we had friends over for a cookout on the deck. It was still 89 degrees when we went outside at 7:30 to cook the burgers.
