Richard invited to tag along and go to Sarah's home for a "Goat Roast" with her family.  She lives outside of Salem and runs a specialty saw mill with her son Ben.  Her daughter Katherine was there as well as other son Reuben.

After the roast, we went to Barbara's home.  Linda has a new yellow scooter!

Beth, Hadley and Celia came out to spend the day with us.  After some swimming, we went to Marquam Inn for lunch.


Roberta's garden.  William set up a volleyball court in the field next to the garden.

 

On Saturday, we drove up to Mt. Hood and went on a private tour of Timberline Lodge, led by Caleb.

On Sunday we gathered for the Yoder Reunion.

On Monday we drove out to the beach house at Road's End for 4 days.  Beautiful weather.  A decision was made to remove all of the pine trees along the front.  They have gotten too big and pose a problem of falling and causing damage.


We drove to Yachats to visit Mother's sister Anna Lou.

On my last Sunday, I joined the congregation of Smyrna on a bus trip to the Highland Christian Center (A UCC church).  It was a "trip".
