i love my family
and not just my immediate family but all my cousins and aunts and uncles. it is such a shame we are so spread out across the country. from steve, brad and lori in oregon to britt and kirsten in southern cal to clay, lindy and sally in columbus, ohio are all such great people to hang out with whenever i get the chance.
last year, ROF and i went to portland and got the opportunity to stay at my cousin brad’s house with his wife jane and their two adorable boys. this was the view from their house (i’m not joking):
jane, brad’s wonderful wife, sent me one of her family’s favorite places for dinner. so read on and if you’re ever in their neck of the woods, be sure to check it out! thanks jane.
Here are some pictures of my favorite place: Char Burger, in Cascade Locks. I’ve been going there since I can remember. When my parents & I would take a trip to Portland to come visit my grandma, we would stop for lunch or at least an ice cream cone.The view is beautiful & there are many indian artifacts hanging on the walls including many other old time farming memorabilia and cowboy things. Now, we only live about 1/2 hour away. We went recently for Mothers Day …. our favorite thing is probably the cream pies or berry pies. Mexican burger or the swiss mushroom burgers are great too!
