Pictures from Mom's Visit

Mom & I at Oceanside

As I mentioned in my last post, Mom came out to visit for 3 weeks in mid-February. I finally got the pictures posted on our web album if you want to check them out. Some of the pix are of us putting some final touches on the kitchen and dining room. We hung a light fixture above the dining room table (we can finally see to do crossword puzzles!) and put up the toe-kick and a window treatment in the kitchen. It wasn't ALL work though! We played lots of 500 and Rummicube, hosted the Holmans and Hnats for dinner and visited Grandma Dell and the Holmans for dinner in Gresham. We made time for two day trips as well. We went to the coast via Tillamook where we toured the Tillamook Cheese Factory and Blue Heron French Cheese. We drove through Oceanside, Pacific City (where we stopped for lunch) and Neskowin, making several stops on the beautiful beaches. We also visited The Glockenspiel Restaurant where we had breakfast and listened to the glockenspiel play, then drove up to the Queen of Angels Monastery. It was sort of a coincidence that we ended up at the monastery, actually. We started talking to a gentleman at breakfast who recommended it because of the spectacular view point of the valley as it's situated high on a hill. The grounds were almost as beautiful as the view so we have quite a few pictures taken there. Enjoy the pix and talk to you more soon!

  1. That's really a beautiful gate that Jeremy and your mom are standing in front of...so ornate. I don't remember ever seeing that gate, so it must be fairly new?
