ARE WE THERE YET?

We were very warm and tired by this point, but we didn't think Josiah would take the suggestion to "go soak your head" literally! There's the boat house again. We must be getting close! Right? Wrong!
We finally walked out 3 hours, 5 minutes, and more than 5 miles later. I made it, which is a miracle considering how my knees have been since the cartilage injections that were supposed to make them feel better? Not!! The last one was in March. This is August!! Jesus is still the healer! Then it was on to Sahalie Falls.

Jessi will remember how hard we had to look for our covered bridges in Vermont. Well, as we're driving towards Eugene...walla, there's the Goodpasture covered bridge built in 1938.

Last stop, Mazzi's, for some calazone before heading home. We love Mazzi's calazone so much that we drive clear to Eugene for the treat since they're no longer in Salem, or even Portland anymore. So since we were already in Eugene, of course we couldn't pass up the opportunity. Of course Josiah had to have Fettuccine Alfredo and Jeremiah his pizza, but Rissa, Dennis, and I were savoring each bite of sausage, mushrooms, and gooey cheeses folded into that tender crust and smothered in an awesome marinara sauce. I'm salivating just thinking about it!!

Great places to visit. You guys are always so good at finding the fantastic spots around OR. I definitely want to check out Clear Lake now. And now I am also hungry for calzone. Thank you.

Wow, Alysun, that was a quick comment! I'm not even done posting yet! I know if I didn't save all my posts for one sitting. You're lucky it rained today, or I still wouldn't have got caught up!

Mazzi's! I haven't heard that name in years! Yummm! I can just taste that Calzone now! I didn't know they were still around in Eugene. Of course, we never go to Eugene, so that's probably why! Looks like you guys had a great Sunday together. Nice seeing everyone, including Jeremiah in the pictures! :-) When are we going to see your finished kitchen?!

Ah! The kitchen! Well, it looks just like it used to, which of course was the goal, with the exception of the wallpaper that had to be replaced due to the painter not knowing how to take down masking! I'll get a picture sometime for you though, it's just so busy with summer weather to deal with. Wait for rainy weather.
