Oregon bound in 9 days

Pinch me, am I dreaming?  My bags are almost packed and I have been ready to GO!  I pack in my mind before I drift off to sleep every night since booking my flight to Oregon.  I will be able to stay 2 weeks.  I am usually able to only stay 1 week, so I feel extra blessed. 
I will be flying into Portland airport and Steph will pick me up.  We will be going to "Listen to your Mother" in Portland that evening.  It will be such a special time with my daughter.  We will spend the night in Portland and head on to Bandon the next day.  Oh how I can't wait to hug "4" growing Grands and of course my son-in-law...who gives the best hugs.  It has been 7 months since I have seen all of them.   I miss them so much.  While I am in Bandon, I will be able to attend 5 of Grays baseball games and go to Ivy's dance Recital the weekend of Mother's Day. 
I hope to be able to walk to the Ocean daily, since it is so close.  I love to sit on the patio and just breathe in the Ocean air.  I will eat my favorite fish & chips at Bandon fish house and walk down the streets of Old Town Bandon.  I love to also visit Face Rock Creamery and enjoy the delicious ice cream and cheeses. 
Carter is going to teach me how to play Chess.  I will be playing many games of Old Maid with Ivy, I'm sure....and lots of coloring.  I want time to stand still while I am there...
