A Special Spot in Astoria Oregon

DSCN3718

Coffee Girl located on Pier 39 in Astoria, Oregon was recommend to me by a fellow homeschooler and blogging friend I know through Facebook! I love connecting with people and finding out about neat places to visit! I had a great experience visiting this place with my family! We almost missed getting coffee though as Coffee Girl is open early in the morning and closes late afternoon (4pm).  If you plan on going, please keep that in mind.

This month we took a field trip to a local Nature Park during a special event! At this event, the kids got to build mason bee boxes,  learn about many different plants growing in the park, take part in a scavenger hunt, learn about recycling, practice their nature journaling, enjoy a free slice of berry pie, and so much more! It was a wonderful day out and even Grandma and Grandpa Lowmaster came to take in the fun festivities with us.

Our Lavender Festival Visit

DSCN3089

This month was my second visit to the Clackamas Oregon Lavender festival.  My husband and I visited  last year and decided to bring the kids along this time.  We were a bit wary about going because of the hot weather. Oregon has been having abnormally hot temperatures throughout the day ranging in the upper 90s to 100s. But when we went the skies were overcast and there was a lovely breeze. We went early and left right around the time when the heat was starting to rise.

Options Are Important for the Best Family Vacations!

flifloipOptions Are Important for the Best Family Vacations

Family vacations can be difficult to plan for even a well-prepared individual. With a number of tastes in food, entertainment, and activities to balance, the planning experience can quickly become overwhelming. The simple fact is that traveling as a family can be expensive, and catering to three, four, or five different agendas can be exhausting.

Mostly Wordless Wednesday: Impromptu Park Trip

DSCN2208
Something I love about living in the Pacific North West is the weather. It’s usually never too hot and we certainly don’t mind the overcast days. If there’s a breeze it’s even better. A little bit of rain doesn’t scare us! That’s what jackets are for!  Any day is a good day for going to the park. Our trip to the pictured park over the weekend was impromptu. We had planned on visiting a science museum but it was incredibly busy. The next best thing was enjoying some family time at a new to us park.
