We are having a quiet time in Portland with the family. I’m finally beginning to feel some energy return. Yesterday morning we went to the Oregon Flock & Fiber Festival in Canby. The amount of yarn and roving available was overwhelming. It was so crowded and I was still not feeling great so regrettably I ended up buying nada. Mia and Milo enjoyed seeing the goats, sheep, alpacas and llamas.
In the afternoon, Steve and I drove out to Lake Oswego to look at neighborhoods as we are probably going to move up here in the next year. Last night, Steph made a feast of turkey burgers, sweet potato fries and cole slaw, then we went out to Ben and Jerry’s for ice cream.
This morning Steve started the day reading the comics to Mia and MIlo:
Mia took a ride on her pretty hobby horse that her mom made for her. Isn’t Steph creative?
Then we took a walk down to Hawthorne St.:
Mia found a California Poppy!
Milo took a rest before he took off on his self-designed par course:
Twirling on a pole
Hanging from a bicycle rack.
He sprints to the finish!!
Mia was usually ahead of us and had to wait for us to catch up:
We saw these purple things on our walk:
these wonderful flowers with bees – can you spot the bees?
This house that was for sale, but had been sold. I’d like to meet the person who painted the house or who bought the house!!
This afternoon we went out to look at more neighborhoods in Portland. We really like Eastmoreland which is near Reed College. Tonight, Jack and Steph are on a date and we are babysitting.
Tomorrow we head home, but with lots of excitement about the possibility of moving here and having more quality time with Mia and Milo.
