It's Getting To Be That Time Of Year! In our family, another sign that spring has truly arrived is that our boys camp out, something they'll do a great deal of the summer. True, it's only in our yard, but a tent among the trees is far more interesting to a 10 and 12-year-old than a boring old bedroom. Saturday ended up being surprisingly dry and warm so the tent was up and ready by late afternoon. Of course, the weather forecast still called for the temperature to drop to close to freezing during the night. But we figured they'd come in before they froze to death. Plus they slept in coats and warm sleeping bags. Most folks who visit Hood River County to camp use actual campgrounds, but our yard requires far less packing and hauling and the bathrooms are a short walk away.

Youth Basketball in the Columbia Gorge Yesterday brought the first game in youth basketball in the Columbia Gorge. Our son, Ben, and his Parkdale team won their game with a score of 22 to 6. The team has just six players, which meant the kids played most of the game. We were so proud of them. Kids we hadn't seen play yet impressed us and our own son pulled off some impressive plays. He also proved to be a great on defense, drawing on his obvious football skills maybe a bit too much. Games are every Saturday, through mid-March. The team practices two additional nights a week. Keep up the great work boys!                                  If you are looking to purchase a home in the Columbia Gorge region, be sure to check out ColumbiaGorgeFSBO.com.  Home and Property Owners in Hood River, ...

  There are few things more exciting to a couple kids than that phone call that came at 5:30 a.m., announcing that today was going to be a snow day. The tv news confirmed it: The Hood River County School District was officially closed for the day following a night of snow which was then turning into freezing rain. Suddenly, thoughts of homework, gym clothes and meetings changed to plans of sledding, playing video games and, yes, napping. Today's snow day came in the midst of a winter with well above average snow levels, exciting to some, inconvenient to others. We are the former and consider today to be an unexpected gift.     If you are looking to purchase a home in the Columbia Gorge region, be sure to check out ColumbiaGorgeFSBO.com.  Home and Property Owners in Hood River, The Dall...

Last weekend, the Seahawks beat the Rams to win the NFC Western Division.  Ben, our ten year old, asked to go to the playoff game. Tickets were purchased - 4 of them so older brother and a football playing friend could go too.  Our oldest decided to spend the weekend flying remote control airplanes with the local RC club and hanging with Mom. Two of Ben's friends eagerly signed up for the road trip.  We left Hood River at 4pm - here's a pic of the crew in their Hood River Gold football jerseys. After a quick stop for a fast food snack, we hit I-84 and headed west - right into Friday afternoon Portland rush hour traffic. It took about 45 minutes get through the I-84/205 congestion, then north to Seattle. The boys had their video games but they were also hilarious as they bantered with ea...

We love the social life in small towns. Our boys hardly ever miss Saturday night skating at Parkdale Elementary, Parkdale, Oregon (just 15 miles south of Hood River). Every Saturday through March come join us in the school's gym, 6 to 8 p.m. Every age is welcome, from barely walking toddlers to grandfathers, locals and tourists alike. Kids love the games - with prizes! - and the music is festive: do the Macarena, the Chicken Dance and even the Limbo. There is an initial $2 registration fee, then each evening of skating is only $1/person! Best deal out there!
