Spring Break!

 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.
