Days 5-10

Christopher and I took a trip up to Portland to look at the house that we put an offer in on and to look at other houses incase this house falls through.  During that time I didn't blog, but I did take a daily picture!

Day 5:  11 o'clock

The boys and I decided to go miniature golfing.  It was going fine until hole #10 when Anderson was having a hard time getting it over the hill and went into meltdown mode.  From then on he wasn't too interested in playing, but rather in running away and hiding.  This picture is before hole #10 at 11 o'clock.

Day 6:  Adventure

Christopher and I began our first day of our house hunting adventure in the Portland area.  We met with Steve, our realtor, and he took us to places around in Tigard (where we are looking at].  Then at noon we went to the house that we put an offer in on.  The house was having an inspection done and we also wanted to see it in person, since we have not yet.  We really liked the home and just hope that everything works out.  This picture is of the house.

Day 7:  Pattern

More house hunting is what we did.  This time we went exploring homes on the east side.  Then in the afternoon we went back to the west side.  I'm very happy that we decided to go with Portland because it is a really beautiful area and the people are super friendly.  Plus, there are a ton of trees and it is very green!

Anyway, Christopher and I went out to a nice dinner before a movie and this was the pattern on the bathroom walls.

Day 8:  T is for...


The picture that I used for this day was actually not taken today and I was planning on putting one we did take today further down in this post, but it looks like only Christopher took pictures and he is on a work trip, so I don't have access to his photos, oh well!  In Portland they have so many shops where you go to fill up your growlers of beer.  It is just a bunch of taps of beers.  Portland is serious about their beer consumption!  They also sell cider and kombucha!

Today was our last day in Portland and we looked at even more houses!  This house hunting is exhausting.  We checked out the neighborhoods of Tualatin and Sherwood, which were really nice.  After we were done our realtor told us to take a trip to McMinnville, which we did.  They have this amazing aviation museum with a water park there.  We also had a lunch at an old hotel.  Then we headed back up to the suburbs of Portland and checked out some more areas and then we headed back on home.

Day 9:  We Live Here

Graeagle, CA

Day 10:  Flying

I thought that it would have been awesome if the timing worked out and this day was on the day that we were flying, but it was not.  I decided that I would just take a picture of me on the plane and then use it for today.  BTW, I still get very nervous when I have to fly :(.

Day 4: Ordinary


Pajamas are an ordinary choice of clothing for Anderson to wear!  He was so proud of himself for putting on his pjs all by himself, but I don't know if he got the memo that it was 80 degrees out today and fleece pajamas might be a little warm for the day!

Today the boys and I also went to the Millpond and had a nice relaxing time.  I didn't get any pictures, but I should have.  Oh well, I am sure that there will be many more days at the Millpond this summer!

Day 3: Family


This is my family.  It was hard getting Anderson to look at the camera.  He was more interested in moving his head side to side and up and down, but it looks like we caught him at a good time.  I think that the dogs are looking over at the neighbor's dog.  We are missing our three cats, but that would most likely be an impossible picture to get!

Day 2: Doing


The boys were doing what kids should be doing, playing!

Today we went to the park in Portola and played some.  After the park we went to the library.  At the park and the library we got to see some interesting Portola characters :]!

June Photo A Day Challenge & Day 1

The last time I attempted to do a photo a day challenge (see the back posts of August 2O13] I didn't complete the challenge.  In fact, there is a very high probability that I will not complete this one, but I want to give it a try.

I decided to go with Fat Mum Slim's Photo A Day Challenge because she's been doing this for awhile and a lot of people seem to do hers.  Below are prompts for what we should be taking a picture of every day.

Day 1: June 1:

Today is day one, which is Joy.  Here is my joy :] 

They were modeling the new tent & goggles we got
I am also posting these pictures on Instagram so that they are a part of the photo a day community.  If you are not my friend on Instagram send me a message and we'll make the friendship happen there!


p.s. Yes, I still need to catch up with April and then do May's photo a day posts, but I have to gather all of our cameras and upload the pictures, so I am sure you will see those posts scattered throughout this photo a day challenge!
