What a great trip!
We had a wonderful trip. Spent a full and partial day with my son's family and the kids had a great time. My granddaughter played her final soccer match this year and grandma thinks she was awesome! It was 5- to 7-year-olds and they really did play well, I was impressed.
On the way up we stopped in Baker City and had lunch. There is a restaurant that has an elaborate model train set up. They have a large display as you enter and then the trains travel throughout the restaurant, going past tables and overhead. The boys loved it.
On the way home we met my daughter and SIL in Halfway, OR. We had lunch and then my SIL took the boys to the playground and my daughter and I went to the quilt shop. I was really surprised, it was quite large and had lots of wonderful fabric. They also have a coffee shop and an antique store. They were doing some construction so I would really like to go back some day.
On the way to Hell's Canyon we stopped and picked huckleberries, it was a lot of fun the weather felt like fall. After we had picked for awhile the youngest grandson sat down, on a somewhat flat spot, so grandma sat down with him. He would look up at me and grin and say "you have a huckleberry for me?" So cute and needless to say, grandma did not have any huckleberries left in her container when we got ready to go.... LOL
