But for the first time in a few years we will not be heading up for “Sidney day” because he starts full-time preschool today.  Last week we had our last of such days, and though Sidney will still be a delightful part of our lives, the weekly conversation about this and that is complete.

Since Sidney and his family moved to Milwaukie a couple of years ago R & I have driven up on highway 99e instead of the freeway, and have our own set of “landmarks” so we took a few pictures and the day looked like this…

the “step-gabled” green building just north of town I’ve vowed to photograph, knowing it would be torn down one day…

the Sam Brown century farm barn miraculously restored…

the very beautiful Sam Brown house, sadly NOT restored…

Cloudy day sky

the Barlow house…

the driving head…

Ivy Street in Canby where we used to turn right to go to my Mom and Dad’s…

Pearson’s since 1934…

the old Oregon City houses all housing new businesses…

the tunnel

the Still (view of the falls from the deck)…

the bridges…

But, as we got closer, things got a little creepier…(Halloween is in the air)

and then the whirling dervish…the “Go Go”

The perfect outfit was found and off we go playing monsters…

first stop park number one…

“we’re going to Palm Springs”

then a little bit of art-looking (Marie Watt at PDX)

lunch and park number two…

home for a nap…(which on this day needed to be taken in a pile of pillows and quilts on the floor)

then a bit of a swim with the bike helmet for style…

and after some hugs and kisses…
