A Weekend With My Sister

Megan came to visit us on Friday August 1st. She arrived late so we didn't really do much that first night, we all just went to bed.

The next morning we woke up early and headed to Voodoo Doughnut for breakfast. This was our first time going to Voodoo Doughnuts and we were impressed. The doughnuts were so good!

After we ate breakfast we hit up some yard sales. The yard sales weren't very good that day, none of us found anything worth buying.

Our next stop was Florence. We took Megan to the North Jetty and found a seal and some jelly fish. It was fairly windy on the jetty so we didn't stay too long.

We decided to stop at the Sea Lion Caves. It was our lucky day-- they were open so we got to go inside the cave. We rode an elevator down about 300 feet and found ourselves inside the cave. It was a neat experience, definitely something to do atleast once in your lifetime.

Love this photo of Megan.

After we emerged from the cave we walked down a trail to the "mating rock." There were probably 200 sea lions on the rock and they kept making noises, they sounded like a bunch of people farting, we couldn't help but laugh.

A lot of sea lions.

We continued on our journey and soon found ourselves at the Heceta Head Light House. The light house is fast becoming one of my favorite places to visit. We hiked up the lighthouse and spent the rest of the day playing on the beach.
Andy- he dreams of going inside sometime.

The next day we went to church and Megan came with us. It happened to be fast and testimony meeting and Megan leaned over to me and said something to the effect of...

"Remember when I was little and you used to bribe me? You would tell me that if I bore my testimony you would give me chocolate."

I didn't have any recollection of this.

She continued, "Do you have any chocolate at your house?"

Before I knew it Megan marched up to the pulpit was recounted the previous conversation to the members of our ward. She then bore her testimony.

I am so grateful for my sister and her sweet testimony. In case you were wondering, I did give her chocolate.

Megan left after sacrament meeting but before she left we introduced her to one of our favorite missionaries, Elder Bethea. Like Megan Elder Bethea only has a right eye. Comical I know, we thought so too. It was kind of an awkward meeting but it made for some good laughs.

I'm so glad Megan decided to come and visit. I love spending time with my family and it seems like it doesn't happen nearly enough.
