A Little R & R (sort of)

I'm not sure that there was much actual "rest" and "relaxation" happening but we just spent three days at the coast and had a pretty great time! While the hubster headed up to Spokane for a work conference, we hit the road with Grams and went to Tillamook. Mmmmm...cheese!

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.

  1. Hello! My name is Tara and I work for Tillamook Cheese. I saw your blog post and thought you might be interested to know that Tillamook is holding a casting call for a TV commercial about our ice cream. We're looking to feature real people (of all ages!) who love our ice cream. We're holding casting calls today (5/10) and tomorrow (5/11) from 1-4pm at Pata Negra Restaurant, 1818 NW 23rd Place, Portland, OR, 97210. We'd love for you and/or your kids to try out for the commercial!

    Thanks for visiting the Tillamook Cheese Factory!
