we were the special guests of auntie lulu last weekend for a special mother's day victorian tea at her church.

i am and always will be a farm girl and it was delightful dressing up as 2 country girls. our simple outfits were nothing compared to the jaw dropping dresses some ladies wore. there was a victorian and edwardian fashion show showcasing women who had made their own dresses or started collecting pieces for their dresses decades ago. made me realize that every girl needs a victorian dress in her closet. you never know.

homemade coconut macaroons, cucumber dill sandwiches, and lemon drop candies for our tea. the woman on the left behind bryn just had her 100th birthday and didn't look a day over 75.

bryn on the way home..... "lu that was more fun than i thought it was going to be."

Hunter's 4th grade class studied Oregon this past year. It's also been Hunter's dream for the past 4 years to travel in an RV. In 3 months we're packing it all up and taking a 10-day trip around Oregon. As an Oregonian there are places I haven't visited yet. I think I'm more excited than the kids. We've been trying to figure out how to document the trip and thanks to my friend Alison A. we are all set.

At the Oregon 150 Challenge they have hundreds of places to see and visit this summer. I can't believe how many adventures I've never heard of right in the Willamette Valley. We are signed up and ready to hit the road.

Did I mention I'm REALLY exited?
