Last week the kids and I made a trip to Salem to visit my grandfather and aunt Lee. It was a nice visit and unusually sunny and hot there. We went to my aunt Lee's friend Janie's house in Mt. Angel where Ashley got to ride her miniature pony Oreo. It's been a few years since the last time Ashley was on Oreo and her legs are much longer now. Then we all went to lunch and did some shopping in Silverton. Where we found a bunch of really fun and cute shops with all kinds of things you would want but didn't really need.
In the middle of the week we made a quick trip to the ocean at Lincoln City to get Salt Water Taffy, go to lunch at Dory Cove and run around on the beach. The week quickly flew by and we were headed back home. We did make a quick stop at the Bonneville Dam fish hatchery to say hi to Herman the sturgeon.
