We discovered a new restaurant in Portland this week that we really like. I know most of you are not fans of buffets, but this one is awesome. We like buffets because the kids eat instantly, no fighting, and they get stuff I know they will eat. Anyway this restaurant doesn't have nasty greasy food it is all pasta and salad and really good soup. You leave without that "brick in your belly" feeling. I highly recommend it!

So at the end of it all, I had to decline knowing that the timing just isn't right for my family, but hope to maybe someday be in this position again!!

Ellie's favorite part was "everything" she said and by the end of the night asked me if she could be a girl in the circus one day!

When I think of my sweet 5 year old daughter, an image of a cute, chubby cheeked, innocent little baby comes to my mind. Yet, this morning while getting her ready for school she installed the fear of how fast she is growing up into me with just one sentence...
"Mommy, when can I wear a bra?"
After picking my jaw up off of the floor I thought to myself, I don't even know if she has ever said the word bra let alone knew what one was and wanted to wear it to school. And to make things worse, she tells me that one of her friends wears a bra to school. AAHHHH!! I am SO not ready for all of this!!

Sofia loves having me write down recipes and grocery lists. Today she explained to me how to make a Buttermilk Sandwich. Somebody test it out and let me know how it turns out.

Next... this is the important part of what you do with the ingredients
"Squish it into a squishy Pile."
And there you have it, a delicious Buttermilk Sandwich.

In Ashland we also went to Lithia Park! One of my favorite places in Oregon!! It was a little chilly but still nice. Cornelia showed me the most amazing kids consignment shop next to Rare Earth. It has the cutest stuff, new and used! I cannot, for the life of me remember the name though. My kids had so much fun in the park, especially Connor because whenever he is with Isa, he is a happy little man!
