Memorial Day means family day
Today was a nice day. Ben had the day off and we took full advantage of it. We woke up and Ben of course had to get his mocha. Then we taught the kids how to play Connect Four. About 8:30 we headed out for breakfast. I love to eat breakfast out. We decided to drive to Silverton to see what they had and to go on an "adventure." Silverton may not have had what we wanted to eat BUT there were fields of white clover, red thistle and orange poppies! Be-U-T-FUL. Next we headed to West Salem. SOOOO, one hour after leaving our house we were finally ordering food. After a large and very yummy breakfast we came back and Ben took the kids on a hike while I took a nap. :) Now Ben is taking a nap while I played memory with the kids and am trying to keep them quiet. Later today we are going to go to Paddingtons. I love Paddingtons (there pepperoni and olive pizza) but NEVER EVER go there. So this is a special thing for me. What a great day!
