No matter what road you travel down in Oregon.......you're going to have road construction.

Rich and I left around 7am on Friday for the Sisters 35th Annual Outdoor Quilt Show. We had reservations in Bend, Oregon for the weekend. It is about a half hour drive to Sisters from Bend.

Of course our internal alarm clocks woke us at 4am. I told Rich I was so excited that today was the big day! His response: He rolled over and went back to sleep. I was so excited I only catnapped until 6:30am and then had to get up.

We arrived in Sisters around 8am and parked. We started out following the rest of the crowd headed for the show. There was people and quilts everywhere you looked. There was all colors, shapes, sizes and designs. I'm told there was over 1300 quilts on display this year. I know that we didn't even see half of them.

After a while we got hungry and went to the food court and had lunch at a van called Burgerville. Rich ordered 2 burgers and 2 drinks and it was almost $13. We ate our lunch in the shade at the park. As we was leaving we ran into our sister-in-law, Cinthie and some of her friends. I got to meet Elaine....we had been internet friends for years but had never met in person. Elaine is a good friend of Jerry and Cinthies and lives in Prineville.

We continued our journey of looking at all the beautiful quilts.

Rich found a place that was selling Military merchandise. The proceeds went to make and send Care Packages to soldiers overseas. Rich bought himself a Army cap.

Around 1pm I felt I had pushed myself to my limit. I told Rich that I couldn't go any farther. We walked back to the car and headed back to Bend.

The traffic was backed up over 5 miles going into Sisters.

We spent the rest of the day and evening in our cool room just relaxing.

On Sunday morning we headed back home. We stopped a few places to get out and walk. We arrived home around noon. Our kitty, Misty was happy to see us. She heard our car coming up the driveway and was waiting for us at the door.

All in all we had a wonderful weekend. I want to Thank my hubby, Rich for being such a good sport and helping me fulfill my dream.
