  • Idaho Part II

    We made it to Silverwood about halfway through our trip to see my mom and grandpa. We have only been there once, but this was our kids’ maiden voyage. Silverwood was really fun. We didn’t make it out of the roller coaster rides and into the water park, but just visiting the rides proved to […]

  • Idaho Days

    Grandpa Tassie (AKA The Big Tass, The Colonel) The view from The Bird Museum– a wonderful free museum just a stones’ throw from my grandpa’s place- where creative thinking and a belief in perseverance and children is paramount. Love this place!

  • Tillamook & The Cape

    Our last official vacation day was a driving day. We planned on visiting Canon Beach, some scenic vistas and eating cheese curds. Most people wouldn’t think much of cheese curds, but they have been the stuff of legend in my mind. As a kid we would always stop in Bandon, Oregon on the way to […]

  • Beachside Seaside: Day Two

    This day was about the sand, the surf and the shopping! We brought boogeyboards with us so we could surf kiddo style. Gigi caught on right away and truly enjoyed riding wave after wave into the surf. Jude, on the other hand, mostly stood near me, unsure of how to approach this whole ocean thing. […]

  • Salt of the Seaside: Day One

    This summer we are not Disneyland bound. Instead we decided to head to the ocean to experience an entirely different vacation. I have never been to Seaside (in Oregon) when the weather cooperated. Every single time I’ve packed my bathing suit and, with thoughts of warmer days, I’ve chosen to leave the warm clothes behind […]

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
