More Spring Break!

Posted: April 9, 2016 in Ramblings

These photos were taken by The Man.  The last one was just a home photo, nothing to do with spring break, but too cute not to include!

Spring Break

Spent a few days in Astoria and Portland over spring break.

Back in 2013 we were also in Astoria so we took this photo of Alex (above, in green shirt) to contrast with the 2013 photo in the blog post here.

Easter

Posted: March 20, 2016 in Ramblings

We are so far out of the loop of organized religion that we all guessed that today might be Easter, so I ordered the traditional Slaby breakfast at the café.  Kielbasa, scrambled eggs, hash browns, toast and orange juice as well as my required coffee.

Even though today is actually NOT Easter, the breakfast was still delicious.  I only ate one piece of the toast and two forkfuls of hash browns, thus staying nearly true to my no-carb rule.  Didn’t finish the orange juice either.

(Alex had the Pick traditional breakfast of M&M pancakes and a marshmallow crème milkshake:-) and Chris went for the traditional fried chicken with gravy.)

Sunny in Seattle

(Believe it or not) – so here is a good, sunny, outdoor photo of my new car for you.
