If you click on the picture you will see a look of fear on Emily's face. The kite kept getting away from her resulting in...
This. Somehow it got wrapped all the way around her. It was pretty funny and I had to take a few pictures before untangling her :)
Downtown on the riverfront
The river has been super flooded
At the zoo. We didn't see many goats or a few others because of the rain so we stood by the statue.

This week is get a job week... or get applications and take resumes places week. But today is clean the spare room day. In the spare room we have both of our desks, all my Mary Kay stuff, guitars, clothes, crap, etc and SOMETHING needs to be done with it all. We really need another dresser but we need towels, new vacuum and other things first so clothes are either in boxes or just piled up. This might take me awhile so I better get started..
While I was frosting cupcakes yesterday I looked up to see this. Lily loves to check out Dorothy and she punches at Nugget if he's on the side of the tank. I usually let her look if she isn't sitting on top of the tank or trying to lift the lid.

ReloCube is finally here!
Lily and Simon have been great helpers
Lily also discovered Dorothy and Nugget
Our cake for our house warming party. When Blaine's mom picked up the cake it said "Laine and Katie" so she it fixed to BLaine and Katie but when they left she realized it says "firts" instead of first ha ha

Here is Dorothy and Nugget waiting to board the plane:
We had a great time while Emily was here. We went to the Oregon Zoo, Tillamook Cheese Factory and Oceanside beach and went to Walmart almost everyday.
Emily and I at Tillamook:
Blaine and Emily flying kites, it got really windy and crazy:
We got tired of carrying our kites :)
I can't wait to have more visitors :D It was soooo hard saying goodbye to Emily yesterday. I called my mom bawling when Blaine and I got back to the car and it makes me want to cry just thinking about watching her walk away. One of the hardest things I've ever had to do. I've moved across the country plenty of times but this was for sure the hardest.
On a lighter note my Relocube gets to Portland today. It's a few days early and I was way excited when the lady called me but it's not being delivered until Wednesday. I can't wait to have all my stuff and start settling in.

My room is empty, my suitcases are packed. I've said all my "see ya later"s now the only thing left to do is actually leave. I'm going to be a mess in the airport when it's time to leave mom. I'm glad Emily is coming with me for a week otherwise I don't think I could even get on the plane. Yesterday was pretty hard saying goodbye to Cade and Olivia, Grandma and Grandpa, Nana and Pop, Micki, Loren and Barrett. I can barely even TYPE about leaving these people how am I supposed to actually DO it?! It's not this small town that I'm having a hard time letting go of; it's all of my friends and family. Yes I love this little town and I'm going to miss it but the only thing that would keep me here in the people I love. There are no schools that I want to go to here or any career opportunities for me here. I can't make a living on the people I love, I need to go on this new adventure for me but it's proving to be way harder that I imagined. Last night I got home after dad went to bed and he didn't even wake me up this morning before he left for work. Guess I don't get to say goodbye to him. Anyways, there's stuff that needs to get done before we leave in an hour. Goodbye Illinois! See you around Thanksgiving/Christmas.
