A visit to our new friend Tor

 Getting there can be half the fun, and spending the night at Bob and Alice's place is fun!
           This is the view from our bedroom window - out to the Sound, off Vashon Island
 Our First stop Thursday morning is in Centrailia.   The Rusty Bike is a great place for lunch, just be sure you order dessert before they run out ( That strawberry shortcake looked wonderful )
                  We arrive at Tor's house.  He lives with his Dad, Miles and Mom, Anna
First stop the kitchen. Alice in white ( Mormor, Tor's grandma ) Aunt Mea ( middle ) makes dinner every Thursday night for the Bible Study. Anna is in blue.

                                     You gotta love Tor's bedroom
                            Tor and Morfar ( grandpa) enjoy breakfast
Tor likes to read while he is having his morning milk

Puzzling over a puzzle

  part of morning routine is feeding the chickens. Tor helps Mom with the chores
                        Tor keeps an eye on Morfar - he is in a tight spot
                                             What a good sport
                 It has been a long day of shopping, eating, shopping, etc.

    This is the  Pittock Mansion - The owner of the Oregonian Newspaper raised his family here, long ago .   Took lots of pictures, but that is another story. The four friends below hiked around the building and lush grounds.
How this happened I will never know. But I might figure out how to put a blog together without three attemps, but tonight, twice is as far as I am going.     We had a great time and will add more photos soon.

Then  back home and a visit from Tanner and his Mommy. Sweetness

With birthday gift card from Vera Bradley, downsized travel bag. Simplified
Dinner with very dear 81 year old Zina, and she insisted on buying. Satisfied
Upon return, she brews coffee and serves sweets. Spoiled
Home, bath, ready for bed, into Sabrina and off to Sally’s. Sleepy

Lunch, Stay and Pray

We did not want to leave you out of our luncheon, so we are glad that you "stuck around".  We had a great time of sharing, eating and praying.  Hope you can join us next time.
Jeanne, you bring a sweet fragrance to life - wish you were here.
