So, anyway, Oregon. I got some kid-free shopping time in, spent some time with family, got to go to IKEA with John and got to have a fun date night with some friends (neighbors!) from college - all while my parents ran herd on my crazy children. And just so it doesn't sound like I ignored my children the whole time, we took them to the carousel museum where we got to see all of the carousel animals in various stages of being built/carved/painted. The boys were surprisingly into it, and we spent quite a bit of time there (until Archer threw a gigantic fit because he reallllllly wanted to touch something he wasn't supposed to), and of course they spent a good portion of time tromping around on the farm with Poppa.

On the way home, the boys each got a chalkboard and chalk...not the best idea (for perspective, they were all MUCH messier than this by the time we stopped for a break).
