Bernard Family Reunion

Well, I think that Jason and I have settled into the summer lifestyle. It is so nice to not have to student teach, go to school, work and try to make time for each other. Now we are just working, and get to have plenty of time together, which we love. :) We just got back from a family reunion with Jason's dad's side of the family. We went to Newport and stayed in a house with 25 of his uncles, aunts, grandparents and cousins. I met new family members that I hadn't met yet so it was fun to get to meet them. Jason's grandparents just recently celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary, so the reunion was also a celebration for them.

On the fourth of July we had our own family celebration at the house, which turned out to be a good thing since the fireworks were cancelled at the harbor at Newport due to foggy weather. Even though that night was foggy, while we were there we had amazing weather. The first day was over 70 degrees on the beach! I even got sunburned...I can't remember the last time that happened to me being on the Oregon beach.

We are going to be working the next couple of weeks, and then we are going to Lake Tahoe to a family reunion for Jason's mom's side of the family. This is something that side of the family does every year, and since Jason has been working every summer since college, this will be the first time he will be able to go in years so he is really excited. It will be fun since we will be tent camping, and will get to use our tent for the first time. :)

Calli and Hobbes (our little kittens) are doing really good. They love to cuddle, and Hobbes is actually asleep on my lap right now while I am writing this. This coming Friday they are both going to get fixed, so hopefully that will all go smoothly and they will let each other rest and heal.

All in all, our summer is going really good. We are working hard, but we are also making time to enjoy our time together and spend a lot of time with family and friends. I LOVE summer time...
