After a few false starts, we headed in Toad II for the Tri-cities and then on to Oregon. We were heading to Daughter Dawn's in Keizer. We had not been down to see Dawn and Todd's since the reception for Granddaughter Havela and Ben last fall. Every time we tried to head that direction last winter, we ran into very nasty weather. Today was a total contrast, sunshine and blue skies. It was a beautiful day for a road trip.
During the trip, we got a chance to Skype with Havela and Greatgranddaughter Kahlyn
as they were getting ready to go to Havela's graduation from her CNA program.
We arrived at Dawn and Todd's home in Oregon just in time for dinner. We had grilled chicken breasts, pasta with homemade pesto, fresh asparagus - and sautéed portobello mushrooms! Granddaughter Kyra is home from college in Virginia - it was good to see her! Later in the evening, Grandson Micah also returned home from his Magic Card gathering. It was good to see him as well! They have all gotten so terribly grown up.
