Breakfast on the Patio at Takoda's with Kari and Casey:

Last Saturday, Cary and I drove Casey over to Rainbow, Oregon in order to give Casey back to his pretty mama, my daughter Kari.  We met for breakfast at Takoda's Restaurant, and ate outside on their lovely patio.

Casey missed his Mom, but he had a great time with us and his cousin Garrett.  He went to work with me each day at the preschool, and was a huge help.

 Takoda's is so pretty.

They even have a koi pond.

My coffee just seemed extra special.

The breakfast was great.

Glad that we only live a couple of hours away from these guys.

A nice lady took our family picture for us.

So, that was one part of our busy Saturday.  After we said goodbye to Kari and Casey, we went on a drive.  The first place that we visited was the nearby Delta Campground, which is featured in the post below.

Hope that you guys are having a great week!

The 2012 Army All-American Day Event

2012 Army All American Game Video

Photo Source: Nike "The Opening Brochure" Pages 2 and 3
During the week of July 5-9, 2011, Cary and I were privileged to attend "The Opening", watching quarterback grandson Tyler Matthews (#43 the first day, and #15 on game days) play with 150 of the best high school football players in the United States. The event was held at Nike World Headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. I hope that you enjoy the pictures ... some are better photos than others, but I tried to capture as many kids as I could.

There are approximately 500 photos in these slide shows. They are of the players, the fans, our family and everybody/everything that caught my eye. They are in chronological order. No names are on the pictures, even if I do know who people were.

As time permits, I will also be writing blog posts about my experience as a spectator. Since I still have a lot to learn about football and this is not a sports blog, I'll write some human interest stories as seen through my eyes. That said, Tyler Matthews, YOU ROCK!!!!
