We always have fun when our returning guests come back to visit. This time they are a spunky group of ladies who love to laugh and enjoy sampling many types of wines.

 

We started our day at the Red Lion Inn & Suites McMinnville and headed on a journey to visit some Yamhill County wineries.

 

 

Our first visit was in the Dundee Hills at Wine Country Farm Bed & Breakfast and Armonea Wines. While sampling the wines we were able to see the horse riders coming in from a wine tour through the vineyards.

 

Then we headed south to visit Methven Family Vineyards to sample the wine and enjoy a few snacks.There was a little time for some great conversation. 

Time allowed for us to visit Brooks Wines and enjoy another array of wines. Some we were a little surprised by. We also learned about biodynamic farming.

 

To end our day we took a little drive down McMinnville’s Historic Third Street to check out sites and then headed to the hotel.

 

 

It was a lovely day with my returning friends. The next time you are in our neighborhood give us a call and we can enjoy the day with you.

We do have fun in Oregon!

I am sure most of us have enjoyed winter over the last couple months. Those of us who like the winter sports or those of us who like snow or the sound of rain drops on the roof like the winter months. But, we are seeing signs of Spring. There are flowers poking up through the ground. That means everyone can start getting excited for another wonderful season.

Family fun is always something we look forward too and are looking for. Especially when we have little ones in our household.  I have grandchildren who are growing up so fast. At 19 and 12 there are many things they feel are way too young for them. But, a Christmas light display brings out the young at heart. Even when you are 19 and 12 years of age.

A great time is had by all at the Storybook Lane in the little community of Dilley, Oregon just outside of Forest Grove. It is a great place for the little ones to enjoy the story book characters they read about. It is also a great place for those who are a little older to revisit their childhood. You get to re-visit scenes of nursery rhymes that you knew of from your childhood.

December 2015 008

The Storybook Lane is operated by a family and their friends. They have donated their time and money into bring some joy to everyone who visits. It takes them months to put it all together and it is free for you to visit. Donations are always welcomed. If you do visit donate what you can to keep this great tradition alive for all to enjoy.

Have you been to a summer concert in your town or city? Many cities and towns all around Oregon offer an enjoyable evening of music in their parks. Last night we enjoyed an array of music in McMinnville.  Last night there was a little blues, rock-n-roll and old time music. Something for everyone.

It is a time to set aside all the worries of the day and take your picnic dinner and chairs to the park. You will be surprised at how many people you will meet or even know at the park. As we enjoyed the music we also enjoyed watching the children dance and play games.

012

So, check your with your city or town and see when they are having a night of music in the park. If they do not have an event like this one. Maybe you can get a few friends together that play music and have some fun in the park.

Let us know if you would like to join us on one of our great Oregon adventures.

Well, our weekdays and weekends are loads of fun. We get to meet folks from all around the world who are traveling to Oregon for the first time, to visit family or friends. Some of them live here in the United States and in our own state of Oregon. Some of our travelers are amazed with how large and diverse Oregon is.

Two times a year we are a part of the Spirit Mountain Casino Wine & Spirits Fair. This is where many of our local  wineries, distilleries and related industry businesses along with artists and chefs meet to have fun with folks like you.

This Sunday was one of those events. We had so much fun meeting new friends and visiting with some of our old friends throughout the day. Many who have gone on tours with us in the past. There is nothing better than to know you have added to the enjoyment of another persons life.

Well, we know this is a busy time of year for many of us. There are family members coming and going. Yes, you could be that family member who is doing the traveling. Many of us are looking for things to do, places to go and we are looking for things for our family and guests to enjoy.

For those of us who are here in Oregon we have so many options for things to do and places to go.  We are just coming into the ski season. This means many families who will be heading to Mt. Hood for sledding, snowboarding, skiing and yes, those great snowball fights.

Some of us like the ocean in the winter months for storm watching. Checking out the beaches to see what has washed up on shore. There is something about seeing the waves and to watch the whales swim by.

Others of us like more indoor events like concerts, indoor sports, visiting museum and even wine tasting.
