Friday Daydreamin’-Oregon in the Spring

[narrating the play, with Rose acting out Henny Penny’s actions] Once upon a time, on a beautiful spring day, Henny Penny was waking up from a nap under an oak tree, when an acorn fell from the tree and hit her on the head. [fake paper acorn hits Rose on the head] Funny, when I was a little girl in Sicily and they told this story, it was a safe that fell on her head. –The Golden Girls

This week Becca asked us what spring means and our vacation plans. I’m still stunned that it’s already March. I’m daydreaming of our spring trip we’re taking later this month up to Oregon. We originally planned the trip just to see my cousin’s concert at SOU. He’s a music major and incredibly talented. Roo is going to hear his/her first classical music live!

Now unexpectedly it looks like my parents might be getting time off work to join us. We haven’t seen them in 4 months and I’m so excited. I didn’t think we’d be able to see them at all during my pregnancy. We’re hoping to rent out a vacation home together for two nights. I can’t wait!

The last time we were up in that area was the summer before our wedding. It was such a blast! I know it won’t be as warm as in the summer, and there won’t be any fishing my chunky butt out of the pool with pool nets but I’m kind of relieved. I’m ready for spring but I’m not ready for the heat! I’m daydreaming of fresh crisp Oregon air, beautiful green parks and quality family time.



    Becca@R Ww There Yet Mom?

    I’ve never been to Oregon. I hear it’s just GORGEOUS. You can confirm that for me I’m sure. I’m so excited that your parents will get to see your baby bump! Your mom will probably cry!

    When’s your next doctor’s appointment? Pretty soon you’ll start feeling Roo swimming around! There is nothing better than that feeling.


    I’ve heard amazing things about Oregon. And I think vacation homes can be so much more fun than hotels! Sounds like a great trip.


    I was going to say that has to be Southern Oregon! It’s so different there than the valley, but I LOVE it! 🙂

    This sounds so nice!!! Gorgeous picture, too!

    I’m so glad you’re going to get to see your parents. 4 months is a really long time to go without seeing each other!

Your comments make my day!
