My dad and step-mom left on Saturday to drive back to Las Vegas and Father’s Day is over. Our week was a busy one. We went to Multnomah Falls and Mt. Hood with my dad, spent one whole day in our house making Chinese dumplings (it really is an all-day process) and Friday was spent doing some shopping. It was a great week with my dad and I was thrilled that I got to get to know Jen, my step-mom a bit more. She’s a pretty fascinating person to talk to.
I will be honest and say it is nice to have the house back in order, though it seems quieter, lol! But I do like having company over. The more often we have people stay with us, the more used to it I get and I really enjoy this different aspect of entertaining and showing hospitality. I think it’s good for my kids to see that even though you don’t necessarily have room (as in an extra bedroom) for guests, you can still have a ton of fun and make it work.
