We left Joe & Denise's and drove northwest on I-84 passing by a big Ore Ida potato plant near the state line. (Now we know what that name means!) Entered Pacific Time Zone again. This was the first stretch of our trip that we backtracked...about 4 hours. We opted to take the Columbia Gorge route with lots of flowing water through Oregon instead of the High Desert and so viewed the Blue Mountains again on our return trip.

We stopped back by Pendleton and parked in town at Jenny's. Her daughter Kyra had a Little League fastpitch game not too far away, so we walked a few blocks to the ballfield. Jenny treated our kiddos to snowcones, a first for little Cora. (Bummer, I forgot my camera!)
After the game we walked back to Jenny's for a steak dinner prepared by Darin. Baked potatoes, salad, french bread, soda, and ice cream too. Kaylan and Annie baked and decorated cupcakes while the other children sported on the wii.
