Erik's Graduation: Day 1
After yesterday's delayed flight into the Bay Area, it was time to pick up the rental car and drive up to Oregon for Erik's law school graduation from the University of Oregon in Eugene.
We made good time, covering the 550 miles in 8 hours, complete with a 40 minute stop for gas, food and internet at McDonald's in Anderson, CA. Erik's dad and uncle left 45 minutes before us, yet somehow arrived an hour after us. I'm still figuring that one out. *grins*
The Comfort Suites in Eugene was surprisingly nice. A quick stop there, then it was time to change, head to Erik's little apartment to meet with Erik, Monica, and the rest of the Melins and Hillmans, then a one minute walk to Beppi and Gianny's for an excellent Italian dinner. The kids then hit Jackalope for drinks while the parents went home.
