We took full advantage of yesterday’s rare spring sunshine and hit “The Monkey Bar Park,” which is what my kids call the park behind Albertsons in Happy Valley, Oregon. I’m excited for the new library to open up, giving us another reason to enjoy one of our favorite hidden places in the Portland Metro area.
I took this picture with my “one-step-up-from-a-flip-but-definitely-not-a-smart-phone” phone and then doctored it with PicMonkey.com. I had NO idea what I was doing, but I was aiming for an Instagr.am-look. Not bad for a first attempt (and WAY cheaper than buying an iPhone)!
Here’s a short list of posts that I have enjoyed around the internet during the past week. So, feel free to put off that nagging weekend chore for just a bit longer and enjoy!
