I can hardly believe my oldest child is 9! Holy Cow that went by fast and I'm sure I say that every year. This year we had a family party. Chase wanted an Oreo cake so oreo's got baked into the cake too, yum!
We also had a blind taste test, I got to choose what they ate and they had to guess what it was. They all did really great, I think they like the lime the best....hahaha.
Chase has been loving his new tanks. He got one for Christmas and one for his birthday, so now they can battle!
For Valentines Day weekend, Tim decided to book a surprise trip for us to Bend! We have never been up there so it was super fun to explore the city! We went downtown to a river walk and walked all over there and played at a local park.
We ate dinner at Deschutes Brewery. The wait was super long, seeing as how it was Valentines Day, but the food was pretty dang good!
Then on the way home we stopped to see a really cool lava tube that had collapsed and now all the water flowing through it was exposed. It was super cool!
We had a really fun weekend, it was so nice to get out of town, even if we weren't very far away. We had a fun family getaway!
All 3 of my kids caught fevers within a week of each other. We didn't have any other symptoms, thank goodness, but it gave me a chance to try out some of my new Doterra Essential Oils. I was able to keep all fevers down with only Peppermint oil. Sometimes it would drop 2 degrees within 15 minutes! I was so impressed. I was also using a mixture of lemon, ongaurd, melaleuca, oregano and frankincense on their feet to help kill the virus. We've been using essential oils a lot in our home and we love them!
