All over the state of Oregon. Or at least it seems that way.
A trip to Portland on Tuesday (also a trip to IKEA–all I can say is oh golly) to pick up our Burtish (Jon’s version of British) friend, a recovery night in Gates, a spur of the moment trip to LaPine, and a Saturday at the Salem Art Fair. All of that since Tuesday. Throw in some woodcutting for the boys, a first concert for the big girl, and a tiny swimming pool for the little girl. And we’re the family that thinks a big outing is a trip to Home Depot. We might be on overload!
The big kids had a great time boating and swimming at some of the high mountain lakes, outside of LaPine. Only a little sunburn. But a lot of mosquito bites. Mother is absent, due to her fear of all things boat related as well as Sarah’s inability to walk. Chasing a crawling baby around on rocky beaches (in the sun and heat) doesn’t sound like much fun. Absent Mama and baby discovered the LaPine library–the best children’s section I’ve seen in a long time.
We’ll see what the remainder of the weekend has in store for us all. Surely some great opportunities to visit and enjoy family and friends.
