Five simple things

Hello there.

TGIF! I don't know if people say that anymore, but I sure do. Especially when the weekend has great things in store. If you remember last Friday the mention of the second round of another road trip. Today marks trip number two. We are headed out of the Valley and jetting over to a nice place called, Sunriver. We've been here before and had a great time! The Mr. and I can't wait to get away again and this time be able to relax without having an agenda or a schedule. As I sit here and type this I can't help but think that this summer will be one for the books, for sure! We are already planning a few more road trips and I can't wait to get away and explore, forage, and be one with nature. All three of us are road trippers by heart and this is definitely the way to live. Travel is, after all, the healthiest addiction. So with that, here are five simple things that made this week good!

1. This rear-view...

As you know, The Mr. and I took our Christmas Valley trip last Friday and learned a lot about the area in two days. The best part of traveling there was the great views ahead and behind us the entire way. This is a view of Mt. Bachelor in the rear view mirror.

2. This shot from Ag Fest...

We took this same picture when The Bean was four. Although at the time he was four, the wheel seemed a lot bigger. Ag Fest here in Oregon is always a fun event. It gives kids and their parents a look into the farmer practices that surround the area. The Bean also got to pan for gold. He was quite good at it and ended up finding some nice flakes in his pan.

3. Kettle Chips...

If you're a fan of the brand Kettle Chips, you will be pleased to know that their practices are still small scale and based right here in Oregon. Salem, Oregon, is the headquarters for the brand and we are big time fans of their great chips and their high standards.

4. Waterloo campground...

The weather has been wonderful here in the Valley the last few days and it has me dreaming of floating the river. This view is looking over the bridge near Waterloo Park in Waterloo, Oregon, of the South Santiam River.

5. Fields of butterweed...

So many fields of gold here at the moment. The aroma coming from these fields are intoxicating. I love this time of year in Oregon. It's such a beautiful state and right now its on full display!
