Here's the pictorial of camping in Winthrop last week. I gotta say lazy days of drinking and sitting in the sun (mostly) agree with me!! I came back with a KILLER tan (which surprises no one) and wanting a beer at 11 every day!!! Going back to work was rough, but I made it...

I had the opportunity to take the kids to Portland last week. What a freaking great time! We visited our family, the zoo, the arts museum, an old friend of mine, stayed in a hotel and had the BEST WEATHER ever! We left home where it had been raining for two weeks (what??!!) two hours later we were in the beautiful, warm sunshine of Yakima and then on to Portland where the weather was fantastic. Totally great time!

Thankfully, my kids are better travelers (Nintendo DS, books, and a tablet with some kids apps loaded on it makes them less bored) and I even made us a good playlist which neither one complained about and even said "turn this one up" a few times. Good job, Me!

Here are some of the highlights of our trip:
