Rain=hot soup in the kitchen

I feel Fall in the air. Rain is coming down today. I made a pot of potato cream soup with a side of greens from the garden. I'm slowing down today. Sipping tea and thinking of indoor projects. The kids however are rowdy and disappointed in the weather changing our kayak and bike ride plans for the day.  Maybe cookies or muffins will improve their outlook on the day or a fort building session.

Utah friends visit

Good times were had! We kept it pretty simple, surfing and backyard play. Campfire each night and star gazing. Delicious home cooked meals and dessert! Picking up where we left off is so easy with this family. A joy to be with them and share making memories together. Discussions of parenting, life,music, and dreams of the future. It was a refreshing and great visit. I hope they get Oregon friends visiting next!
