Oh, sweet child of mine, all sugared up and flying high after a healthy dose of ice cream from the scoop shop at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. Oh my heck - the Sweet Centennial! If I ever find that flavor here in Portland I will buy all of it. All. Of. It.
Yes, we travel with our quilts. They make us sleep better in strange and big hotel beds. We also had a special guest: Lucy, the pig. She's one of Owen's class critters and we just happened to have her with us this weekend. We had to keep a close watch on her at the cheese factory. She is a pig after all.
They loved LOVED watching all the machines in the factory. Owen even said he wants to be a cheesemaker when he grows up. Though, to be fair, if we had gone to a crayon factory, he would want to be a crayon maker when he grows up. I love this picture of both their little booties as they lean in to get a really good look at all the goings on.
Now we're back and I'm very excited to get back to work on my various projects. One nice thing about getting away was that I came up with a little epiphany about how to piece my picnic quilt! More on that in a (much) later post.
