Family Times

We bought an old house. 100 years old, in fact. No, this post is not about our house but about the fact that it seems like every Monday we (Jon) end up workin on the old old house. Replacing windows, painting, fixing dry rot, fixing the porch...the list is a mile long. So, finally this momma had enough of the every Monday is another work day routine and suggested that the last Monday of the month be family day. This Monday we ran into a few problems in the form of a needed chiropractor appt and a parking lot where the freeway used to be, but we FINALLY got downtown and were ready to use our friends' tram passes then we were going to head home for pancakes. Well, it was kinda late and if you know the Brawley's you know we eat at 5. So we hit up the very first Old Spaghetti Factory in downtown which also happens to be like 5 blocks from the tram station and filled up our bellies first. Then we rode the silver bullet that is the OHSU sky tram. The kids loved it and were so surprised! Yay for some family fun!
