Kristhawee has completed his Junior Ranger workbook so we’ve returned to the Thomas Condon Paleontology Center to present it to a Ranger.
First we watch a paleontologist working on a fossil that has been brought into the lab in a plaster cast-
Then Kristhawee is sworn in as a John Day Fossil Beds National Monument Junior Ranger!
Bravo kiddo! I’m so proud of you!
We’d been seeing an unusual amount of BMW’s in recent days. A large group pulled in next to us and we struck up a conversation. They asked us if we’re headed to the BMW MOA (Motorcycle Owners of America) Rally that would kick off in Salem, Oregon in a few days.
What’s this? The 41st Annual BMW MOA International rally is kicking off only ~260 miles to the west just a couple days from now?! Who knew?!
I ask my little guy if he wants to go check out a biker party. Without pause or hesitation he says “Let’s go!”
Ha! I guess we’re headed to Salem!!
