We have been blessed with amazing weather lately- blue skies and warm temperatures. Honestly, it already feels like summer here (which is actually a bit scary, but I will say that I am enjoying it in the moment!). Last weekend, I got to go on a mamas-only yurt trip on the Oregon coast and on Monday, Todd's mom and step dad were in town and we spent the day in the Gorge. I feel so fortunate to live in this amazing place where the ocean, mountains, rivers, and forests are all at my fingertips. It does rain here quite a bit, but when it is not raining, I feel like I want to spend every second outside exploring.
Our day to the Gorge was packed full with a stop at Multnomah Falls, a visit to the Bonneville Dam and the Bonneville fish hatchery, a stop in Hood River for lunch, a drive along the 'fruit loop' where we saw amazing views of Mt. Hood, and a quick stop at a winery. I think the kids favorite part was the huge sturgeon at the hatchery- they were, in Finn's words, "ginormous".
All of this exploring makes me so excited for summer... days without work and school, blue skies, and the freedom to explore. I have already been making my summer to-do wish list!
