Last week in Portland it was really hot. We don't have AC, just fans, but the evenings have been too hot for the fans to even help. We had camping reservations, but at the last minute, I just couldn't face it. Where we were camping it wasn't going to be any cooler—just the idea of packing for camping was making me sweat. So, we headed to the coast instead where it wasn't hot at all. It was heaven. We had a lovely time with Grandma and Grandpa at their beach house and we set up the tent in the yard, so there was camping, too. The girls slept in the tent both nights and I didn't have to pack all that camping stuff. And I got a normal bathroom and a kitchen. Win-win.
