I love living in Oregon. This past weekend we took a mini-vacation to Sisters. Nestled in the Cascade range, this faux-cowboy town doesn't have a whole lot going for it as a town, but the view (The View!) and the easy access to the pleasures of the back country make it a fabulous place to vacation.
We did a little hiking, some fish feeding and some photo taking. We celebrated my 38th birthday by going out to dinner one night. But mostly we took it easy, sleeping in each day and spending afternoon nap time at the cottage we'd rented from a friend. Oh, and we worked on potty training. The ice cream cones, they were a reward for...um...doing the business that needs to be done where it needs to be done.
