Brandon had to submit his paper before spring break so that meant that we got to really party. Yogurt Extreme is the perfect place to celebrate.
We spent a glorious day at Silver Falls. I only took one photo of each waterfall that we saw on our hike.
It was a long hike, especially for Rosy but she didn't give up. My favorite part was at the end when we were slogging through mud and Brandon led the kids in a "bear hunt". They had just started getting grumpy and he popped them out of it. I didn't take a picture but there was a point when they were all pretending like they were climbing a tree and I just stopped and felt all the feels. I was surrounded by nature, with tired muscles hiking with my family just feeling as grateful as a woman could be.
Ike had a pretty good deal snoozing through the uphills. When he woke up we were almost back to the parking lot and he begged to walk. We put him down and I guess his legs were jelly because he ran for about 3 seconds and face planted. He had a goose egg on his forehead and road rash on his nose.
Brushing teeth is the hardest job of the day.
We took a ladies lunch and caught a flick.
And then spent a lovely day with old friends at the Oregon Gardens. I miss my old Spencer View buddies so much. Just seeing them brought me joy that I hadn't realized how much I missed.
