We took a quick trip to north central Oregon on Sunday to see my stepdaughter and her family.  It has been ages since we have been down there, last October to be exact.

We like to visit in August so we can pick blueberries with them.  It was a warm day for picking this year, so this quote fits:

You’ll never regret eating blueberries or working up a sweat.

Now back to the family.  This is one busy crew!

We were able to see everyone except our oldest grandson.  He is playing college football and has a packed schedule. 

Our youngest granddaughter is working two jobs this summer.  One of the highlights of our short trip was visiting her at one of her workplaces, Flowers and Fluff.  It is a darling shop with some great gets + coffee drinks and food.  We made two trips there 😊.  If you are on Oregon Highway 30 between Portland and Astoria, it is well worth a stop.  The lemon scone was amazing!

I also love their motto:

Providing a Place to Go Other than Work or Home since 1989.

Our son-in-law just started a new job as a school superintendent for a nearby school district, always a stressful time! So, my stepdaughter is busy juggling everyone’s schedule, caring for our very dear oldest granddaughter, and generally keeping it all together!

As always, I am grateful that they were able to spend some time with us.  It is wonderful to see them and to catch up. 

Dear Step Daughter, Thank you for loving me and trusting me. I am so lucky to be a part of your life and your family.
