My sister invited us out to Hood River for the night before she had to catch an early morning flight. Henry had practice, so it was a girls night adventure. We had too much....not time for pictures..... Frances had to be back for a Timbers game at 2:00, so we made the most of the morning we had in the Gorge. We went for an incredible hike with wild flowers and beautiful birds swooning about looking for prey and then did a bike ride on the trail between Mosier and Hood River. Bliss.

We had another EPIC weekend in Manzanita for Memorial Day. There is always something so magical about that time....the allure of summer is there, it is almost always nice, and work is always insane.....so the opportunity to just have an amazing weekend with the family and our friends in town is the best. We got to spend time with Brookie and kids, Henry golfed what seemed like twenty times (he woke at 5:45 for one round and got a membership as it was cheaper than paying for all his rounds) and we got to go to the book fair.

My college girlfriends, all of whom live on the east coast, planned a girls weekend in Sonoma. I can't even begin to put into words how much fun I have and how much I adore those girls. Even thought it is two decades later, I instantly feel at home with them. They are smart, witty, raunchy, hilarious and so much fun to be around. SO. MUCH. FUN.

We had a fantastic mother's day. I got to go for a run, to a Timbers game with Mark, and then we had a picnic in Washington Park. The kids each made amazing cards. Henry, with help from Frances, said I was a "trailblazing mom who taught them the importance of being a feminist" so he made me a map of groundbreaking women. I can't wait to frame it and put it up in my office.
