One of my favorite things in the whole world is swimming. And it's been a long time sice i've had a chance to just swim and it felt so very good! I LOVE it. I would swim every single day if I could.
My sister Heather and I decided to be very brave (or stupid) and accompany our dad to Oregon WITH our kids! While an infant, toddler and high maintenance 6 year old don't make travelling quite like I am used to-- It's all good...part of the initiation into motherhood-- it makes travelling different but its still great. Anyway the drive through the pacific northwest was absolutley beautiful and Papa J has been incredibly helpful AND very patient with all our stuff and our kids (Much more patient than I remember him as a kid--way to go dad :)) . We spent last night in Portland then headed out to the coast where we will be for a few days. We are staying in a quaint little town called Yachats. We have already enjoyed clam chowder and fish and chips (mmm...my favorite). I am so excited to be here-- I have always felt that the pacific northwest is home in my heart and I am really enjoying showing my son around.
