Multnomah Falls

The children and I arrived home from Oregon on Saturday afternoon. The girls had a great visit with family and my work went quite well.  But it is sure good to be home!

My food week in Oregon did not go as well as I had hoped.  We did take along a small cooler of things that we had for lunches on Friday and Saturday plus Christopher and I had for the first few days at work. We ate out for dinners most days.  We had a terrific sushi dinner with my oldest daughter which was not only tasty but very fun. She was able to stay with us overnight and we went up to Multnomah Falls on Sunday. It was a wet and rainy day at the falls but still fun.

On Sunday Kiki and Lulu went to visit their dad while Christopher and I went to the beach for a night.  The next day we went on to my work location.  We still had food left and knew we would be eating at people homes in the evenings so we did not restock our groceries. That ended up being a mistake.  Christopher got sick and taking him anywhere ended up not possible. The next few days we were able to eat food that my bosses kept at the shop (we were staying in an apartment that is on-site) and food from the diner across the street.  It wasn’t ideal but it worked out okay. I think all of us were exciting when we arrived home and Joe made us a home cooked dinner!

I think our summer travels are now over. I’m looking forward to getting back into our ‘n0rmal’ routine.  And most certainly back to our usual way of eating.  While I feel we did fairly well overall this summer, as far as eating, the entire summer has taken a bit of a toll.

I have lots to share with you about things that went on at home while the children and I were traveling around. As soon as I get a bit more caught up with things I’ll be back with ‘farm report’ of sorts. Plus I’ll have several other things to share with you that are coming up.

How is your summer going?
