Oregon or bust!

Oh, yeh... 30 hours in a car together!  Thanks to a rather strict schedule of activities and grace, we made it... and still like being with each other.

Wisconsin - OK.  Minnesota - blah.  South Dakota - What?  Will this never end?  Wyoming - meh.  Montana - Winner of the prettiest state en route. 

Idaho - freaky deaky.  Washington - trashy.  Oregon - Cha-ching!  Wow!  The Columbia River Gorge!  The waterfalls!

The forest!  -a deep sigh-  That forest spoke to my soul.  

Neither wind, nor rain, nor sand blasting us in the face shall stop us from having fun on the beach!

Happy birthday to papA

lots of art from the well-dressed-at-6:45AM Ty
ice cream and pistacchios from the always-ready-to-eat G
sweet Sophie love

My process

the raw disaster called potential
a panicked sister-call and a healthy dose of oat straw infusion and motherwort tincture led to organization
a deep sigh, "sweet order"
the happy crowd

Around here

A fancy Russian dinner with our dear friends, abounding in jokes and math facts.
So, Rob has helped the boys make cross-bows, because recurves are just so... weak!  G's dream is to shoot some game to cook up for Rob's birthday.  "Um..." says the vegetarian cook.
And just look at that writing!  His new favorite thing is to write in cursive when I'm not expecting it.

Daddy-Daughter Ball

As usual, my dear daughter had a fabulous time with her papA at the annual Daddy-Daughter Ball.  I was happy to hear that they danced the night away!
