  • Jamison’s first day of school 2019

    Jamison’s first day of school 2019

    Jamison starts school again today. No longer do I get to be there to take the picture so I texted Jamison, asking if he’d take a selfie for me. This picture was the result. Above and beyond! :-)

  • Visiting Ecola State Park

    Visiting Ecola State Park

    Another weekend and the last before Jamison heads off to college. What to do? What to do? Ride bikes around Hillsboro? Longboard Mount Tabor or the Banks-Vernonia trail? Visit Cannon Beach? We loaded our longboards in Jamison’s car and headed west. By the time we got to Cannon Beach, we’d decided to visit Ecola State […]

  • Cannon Beach Sunset

    Cannon Beach Sunset

    “Mom’s going to be home from work soon. Wanna go to the beach?” Oh, that ranks right up there on my list of favorite questions. :-) Doing the math, an hour fifteen there, we would have about 15 minutes at the beach before sunset, stay at the beach a while longer, then an hour fifteen […]

  • Cannon Beach with Mousse

    Cannon Beach with Mousse

    It had been too long since we’d visited Cannon Beach. This weekend, we corrected that. :-) We took our chairs and a ball and thrower for Mousse. At home, she can take it or leave it when it comes to fetching. At the beach, she must fetch. What a beautiful day!

  • A day in the gorge

    A day in the gorge

    Biking Coming to the weekend, Jamison said he wanted to try biking a new section of the Historic Columbia River Highway State Trail. It sounded like a lot of fun, so we loaded up our bikes and headed to Wyeth. Turns out, it was opening day for this new section of trail. We discovered a […]

  • Sunriver family vacation — 2019

    Sunriver family vacation — 2019

    Friday Five bikes on the car and we’re ready for fun. We have arrived at Sunriver for our summer family vacation of 2019. Warning: This is a long post with lots of pictures. Enjoy! ;-) Unlike some of our earlier visits to Sunriver, we have no biking mileage goals. Our goals are relaxation, fun, and […]

  • #allhoppedup Fourth Fireworks

    #allhoppedup Fourth Fireworks

    A few years ago, Suzi and I went to the Hillsboro Hops game on the Fourth of July and watched the fireworks afterward. This year, we decided to do the same thing, but with even more family. We were a little farther from the baseball action this year, actually beyond the outfield instead of along […]

  • Hillsboro Fourth Of July Parade 2019

    Hillsboro Fourth Of July Parade 2019

    I love me a good parade and Hillsboro has a great one! The Fourth is the one day of the year I feel comfortable taking strangers’ pictures. After all, they literally paid to be in public, wearing what they’re wearing, doing what they’re doing. And most don’t seem to mind. Hopefully none of those I […]

  • Longboarding the Banks to Vernonia trail

    Longboarding the Banks to Vernonia trail

    As a last hurrah of Jamison’s spring break, he invited me to longboard the Banks to Vernonia trail with him. It’s a nice, long, gentle ride. The weather was wonderful and the trail was dry. Jamison also took some videos with his phone. Thanks, Jamison for the invite! That’s my boy. :-) Photo credit. The […]
