Wednesday we jump into good ’ole Hi Ho
and headed south. We stayed the night at Rundi’s and headed for the Oregon Coast Thursday morning, stopping at the Woodburn Outlet mall
then on to Newport.
The goal of this trip was to help Reegan celebrate her 9thbirthday
Even though her birthday was not that day she had planned a party for some of her friends. We helped decorate by hanging streamers
and other decorations,
and blowing up balloons
(Ella helped me with this job). About 6PM guests start arriving for a 7PM start.
9 eight and nine year old girls.
First we had appetizers and popcorn
then pizza and pink lemonade, then for dessert we had “grilled cheese” sandwiches
and “Tomato” soup.
Ask Reegan what they really were.
The invitations had asked them to bring mud boots and pajamas. In their treat bags were glow in the dark sticks and LED flashlights. So outside in the rain they went and played flashlight tag and harassed the chickens. Once they were all wet and muddy, they came inside, changed into their PJ’s and we opened presents.
Lots of squeals of joy (I think that is what they were).
Reegan would not let me try out her new longing whip.
(I thought it was a new fishing pole when it was wrapped). After the presents were opened
they each had a pillow cover to decorate and then take home.
Mom starts cleaning up
Barbara and I left about that time and missed the movie and the goodbyes as the party ended about 10:30 PM.
I guess we are getting too old for all the excitement and the sounds of that many young ladies having fun.
After breakfast at the Pig N Pancake
where we again celebrated Reegan’s birthday and Ella’s getting a new bike because she can now ride with no training wheels, we headed towards home.
No excitement coming home except for the sunshine and no rain.
