Well, I mostly enjoy it. I suppose the point of vacation is to vacate your life for a time. To get a break, to get away. But I kinda like my life. More than kinda. My current life is a dream come true and I don't really want to vacate it. BUT I DO want to visit family. And I DO want to be in Eugene. And I DO want to go to weddings and on camping trips and adventures. And I DO love going to the coast.
So these are my post and pre vacation thoughts. Last week I got home from a two week trip to Eugene with the whole family and next week I'm off on other Oregon adventures with just the boys. So this has been a weird two weeks. Two weeks of trying to recover from vacation and prepare for vacation. The break in middle of vacation month.
Here's a few pictures from our recent trip:
|My SIL, Emily, and I out for a cruise.|
|Hawaiian Time! My fav. Eugene treat. (Check out my use of "fav".)|
|Silas and I went on a date to Belly.|
|We finished up at VooDoo doughnuts because VEGAN DOUGHNUTS!|
And their awesome bike.
|Zeke practicing with Aunt Johannah.|

This is us on his birthday.
|It's been a crazy year. So glad Zeke is a part of our craziness.|
|My SIL, Autumn, my friend and bridesmaid, Margaret, and me|

|Biked over the newly finished ped bridge over 15! Also installed a cup|
holder on my SIL, Ellie's, bike so I could pick up Dutch Bros.
|The kids played in the kitty pool a bunch.|
|And Zeke took some naps on a towel in the shady part of the yard.|
|My brother, Walter, and my sister, Maggie, are both missing their front teeth|
at the same time!
|They always ask to play with my tablet :D|
|I took Zekey for a treat at Vanilla Jill's, a new-found Eugene favorite.|
|Zeke playing in the water balloon bucket on the 4th of July.|
