We are in Oregon!

God is so good! We had a wonderful flight and arrived at Debs (Godsgal) & Jer's place last evening. What a gracious family - we feel like family. Deb and I both cried as we hugged for the first time.

My pics will have to wait until I get home. Deb has posted a couple already at her blog. Check my blog roll to link there.

TOday was a blast! We all took part in helping get one of Jer's old tractors down to the Butte Creek Family day here. We had lots of fun. Then we went to an orchard and toured the grounds and even had a horse drawn wagon ride.

I will share more later - right now JER is barbecuing - you wouldn't mama and I to miss that would you ??

Glad you arrived safely Papa and Mama! I hope the drive was beautiful and clear roads. Loved seeing you - you're sweeter than I even imagined. Haven't had a chance to post our picture yet, but I will as soon as I can. Beth is telling me she is very said she was not able to come and see you, and hopes it works out for us to see you in FL (I am typing this word for word as she speaks :0). We'll chat more about that later. For now enjoy your trip and have lots of fun!!! Give Mama and Mama's mama a hug for us.

Papa,

I just deleted my last two comments. Decided to merge them into one to make easier. When you have a chance please read this post as it includes you (and please read comment Denene left - she really wishes she could meet you too):

Brandy, Roxx, RIc - Thanks for your comments - we are having a wonderful time! Mama and I did sneak over to Tam's church on Saturday night and surprised Tam, Kass & Kota. We hugged a lot. We will go stay with them a couple days starting tomorrow.

Roxx, your help at the airport was fabulous! The shuttle driver asked us if you were family! We laughed! WE shared the story and said we had just met for the first time - He was flabergasted!

Indian Lake Papa said...

Darla - today is our first disappointment! :o( Jer was going to pick me up and take me on a logging run - but they had equipment breakdown at the forest. So we will adjust our day - God has been close - this morning Deband I cried in each others arms as we thought about God's blessings.

Sounds like you're having a great time! I used to love to travel, back before kids, when planes were involved! LOL! I hate road trips but I love to fly!

Robin said...

Sounds like you are having a great time - can't wait to see the pictures!

Indian Lake Papa said...

crossview - thanks for stopping by! We are having a wonderful time! We go to Tam's this morning to spend a couple of days!

Robin - We are great !! How are you doing?? Praying for that baby! Is he getting impatient about coming out?

mandy said...

Hug Tam for me! Can't wait to hear how your trip was. :)

Papa,

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog! Elizabeth (Beth) saw it before I did. It made her cry!!! She told me about it and now I am crying!!! Since meeting you tissue has become my close friend. You are part of our family too! You are ministering to us... ALL OF US!!! Mama is too! We love, love, love you both!!! Savor every moment and have so, so, so, so much fun. Give mama and all hugs for us.

xoxox,
Roxx

PS: Elizabeth started a blogger-blog. I am so happy as now she can chat with you via blogging as well. She is still so sad she could not come to the airport with me (Denene is sad too. I think we need a Papa/Mama fan club!). After you return home and catch your breath we can regroup on the connecting in FL idea (Elizabeth's family is traveling with us). In the meantime, here is Elizabeth's new blog when you have a free moment (no hurry whatsoever):

Papa give mama a kiss for me.

You guys were on my hearts today as I was praying for you on my walk today.

God is so wonderful to me to give me a mama and papa to love.

Love you both!

Technonana said...

Oh how fun!!! Can't wait to check out the pictures... meeting our blogging friends face to face is truly a wonderful thing!!!

DEb said...

HELLo Papa.... I am a fellow blogger and blog a lot on Tam's blog...I then noticed she highlighted your blog on her blog so I thought I'd visit and I see that you love horses.. I was wondering if I could ask you a few horse questions...but I don't want to do it here on the blogosphere... would you mind emailing me? dsurdyke@comcast.net

I'm very new to horses and I'm leasing one and I just had a few questions that I'd like to have answered by a seasoned horseman like yourself...teehee...THANK YOU!

Indian Lake Papa said...

Oh I love you all so much!! Deb - (Godsgal) oh how papa & mama miss you already! "See you soon"

We have been so blessed by Deb & Jer and Tam, Brent & family! we are having such a wonderful time!

Roxx - love you too! We are overwhelmed with our new family!

Mandy - hug given!! Praying for you & your hub as you follow Christ's call on your life!

Deb - will email you when I get home about your horse questions - I will try to help. When I get back maybe I can get your phone number and we can talk in more detail.

Technonana - pics later! ha!

Heidi - love you !! hugs & kisses for mama no problem!

Indian Lake Papa said...
