The kids didn't have school, so I quickly jumped the opportunity to head out to Hood River. HR is one of my favorite places overall, but it particularly shines in the Fall. We went pumpkin picking, apple picking, went to my favorite coffee shop, stopped at three breweries to get three different growlers and ended at the waterfront park (awesome!!!! for kids). I love that place. I love that place. I love that place. I may buy a lottery ticket tomorrow. I also love my kids. We had so much fun having a full day to play together - not sure how I got so lucky, but I feel like I already won the lottery.
