Thor’s Well, Cape Perpetua, Oregon

Have you ever heard of Thor’s Well? Well, my friends, you are just about to be introduced to one of Oregon’s most unique tourist attractions.

THOR’S WELL

On on the edge of the Pacific Ocean, near the beautiful town of Yachats, Oregon, you will find Thor’s Well. A wondrous sinkhole that is busy swallowing up the ocean water that comes near it. Many who have visited this natural wonder say that it looks bottomless and it does look like it must be, but it is not. It is however, a very beautifully dangerous place to visit. As a mother, I recommend not letting your little ones visit Thor’s Well, and keeping a very close eye on your bigger kids, while not letting them get too close.

Thor’s Well, or as you may have heard it called, a “gaping sinkhole,” the “drainpipe of the Pacific” or even the “gate to hell.” Is actually a hole in the rock near the ocean, that many historians believe started out as a sea cave that was continuously dug out by the force of the waves. These waves eventually collapsed the roof of the cave, creating the 20 (approximate) foot deep hole that the ocean washes through forcefully over the rocks and into the hole.

For all of you adventurous sorts, the best time to visit Thor’s Well is roughly an hour before high tide so that you can witness the transformation of the water-less hole turned, angry Thor’s Well. While the site is actually at its most spectacular self during high tide, I highly advise not visiting at it’s peak, due to the danger. With raging waters and violent waves of the Pacific Northwest, those standing on the rocks are at high risk of being swept out to see by strong waves. Yes, there are plenty of photographers and nature lovers that chance this risk, but to me it is simply not worth it.

We have visited Thor’s Well 4 times over the last couple of years and we only go down on the rocks when it is lower tide, but still have been able to catch a great photo or two.

Where to go – It’s pretty easy to drive right by Thor’s Well, so you need to be on the lookout for it. There are two places to park in order to see Thor’s well. It is located right on Hwy 101, and you can drive just south of the Cape Perpetua Visitor’s Center and park on the west side of the hwy. If that parking lot is full (it is quite small), you can find the Cape Perpetua Scenic Area with camping and a day use area on the East side of the hwy. If you park in this area (we always do), there will be a small hike to get down to the viewpoint.

I really do highly suggest that everyone make a trip here at some point in their lives, it is hands-down on of the coolest things in nature that I have ever seen. I just beg that you be very conscious of your safety and the safety of your children. Don’t be so busy chasing the perfect shot that you put yourself at risk.

If you make your way there, be sure to let me know! I want to hear what you think!

Simple, Homemade Strawberry Banana Ice Cream

Don’t you just love the warm weather that we have been having lately?  Okay, I know not all of my readers are from my neck of the woods, but we are having a pretty warm spring over here in Oregon and I love it!  We are expecting a week of 80+ degree weather and I am all about it! With summer like weather, comes summer like recipes for our crew. Ice cream, fruit salad, refreshing iced tea, tasty drinks and all of those other yummy things come to mind.  

In addition, I am trying to get rid of a little (okay…a lot) of extra weight before real summer hits so I am loving any chance I can get to eat treats without lots of added sugar and junk, that’s why when I got a sweet deal on some berries and bananas, I decided to make a tasty, healthier version of everyone’s favorite summer treat.  Ice Cream! That’s right, my friends, I put together this simple homemade strawberry banana ice cream with just 3 ingredients!

It’s so easy, it may just become your new go-to dessert this summer!

Are you an ice cream fan? I’m a sucker for a good bowl of ice cream, but to be honest, I’m afraid of eating just about any of them because of my inability to eat gluten. I am terrified of those nasty migraines so for me it just works better to make my own treats. Plus, I can feed this ice cream to my kids without worrying about all of those additives, preservatives, artificial colors or flavors, or any of those other I can’t even pronounce the name type of ingredients.

I already mentioned how this was good for me to eat since I don’t have to worry about any hidden gluten, but this is a great recipe for many types of diets. This is a great vegan ice cream recipe, as well as a dairy free frozen treat! It works for just about everyone!

20 Boozy, Fruity Drinks to Cool You Off This Summer

I don’t drink often, but when I do I like for my drinks to taste amazing and be fun! I’m celiac so beer is off limits, as is many wines (oftentimes the cork is sealed with a gluten paste or the wines are stored in barrels that are sealed with that same paste). I prefer to make my own drinks so that I am sure to not get any gluten in my drinks whatsoever.

That’s why I love these boozy fruity drinks! They are all delicious and just perfect for cooling down in the summer. We really enjoy throwing a good backyard BBQ which often means making drinks for the grown ups and every single one of the drinks below looks like they will be a hit!

20 Boozy, Fruity Drinks

What is your favorite boozy, fruity drink?This Pineapple Mojito from Mom Foodie looks great and surprisingly simple to make. Full disclosure though, I’ve never had a mojito, so this will be a new one on my list for this year!

Strawberry Daquiris are my jam! They have been my favorite drink since I turned 21, so I am not going to turn down the chance to try out this new recipe!

I mean, with a name like Malibu Bay Breeze, who wouldn’t want to give this drink a shot? I think it looks delish!

If you like rum, this Pineapple Cherry Rum Punch Cocktail will hit the spot for you. I’m not a big cherry fan, but my hubby is so I will definitely make this one for him. h

Now that I think about it, I don’t think I know anyone that doesn’t love a Strawberry Margarita. Do you?

My first experience with Sangria was waiting at Olive Garden for our table so we sat in the bar and tried it out for the first time. So good! I’m definitely going to try this one this summer. h

Pineapple may just be the official fruit of summer so this Pineapple Vodka drink will come in handy!

I’m not entirely sure, but I may not have ever had a watermelon drink. Now time like the present to try the Best Watermelon Cocktail, right?h

I love the look of coconut, I love the smell of coconut.  I do not like the taste of coconut. That being said, this Pina Colada looks pretty tasty.  Should I give it a shot?

I’m seeing a ton of Mojito recipes!  I know you all know how much I love my blackberry drinks though (remember this blackberry iced tea recipe?).  I’m definitely doing to give this Blackberry Mojito a try.h

Oh my goodness, who doesn’t love a good Mimosa? This Lime Prosecco Mimosa definitely looks like a good one!

Something about watermelon is just so refreshing!  I’m ready to give this Watermelon Cooler a try.

Ohhh another Sangria recipe! This time it is White Orange, YUM!

We all love a good, fizzy drink, don’t we? This Blueberry Lemon Vodka Fizz looks super tasty!

Peach is my all time favorite fruity flavor!  These Peach Margaritas look AMAZING!
h

Yes! Another yummy peach drink! This Sparkling Peachade Vodka Drink looks like it will be perfect for those hot summer days. h

This Blue Lagoon Cocktail will fit right in at your pool party!

Another tropical themed drink, this Carribean Sunset will make you want to head off to a tropical island!  I’m already packed!

Do you like lemonade?  This Wild Berry Lemonade looks quite refreshing!

Do you have any amazing boozy fruity drink recipes that you want to share? I would love some more ideas!

8 Tips to Help You Throw an Awesome Summer BBQ

how to throw an awesome bbq, bbq tips

I don’t know about you, but Winter can not end soon enough for me!  I am so beyond ready for the sunshine and flowers of Spring and the warm nights of Summer.  We have big housework plans for this Spring and I fully intend to have some awesome Summer BBQs here at our humble abode.  Because we had project after project to complete and not enough time to do it, the last several years have not been filled with all of the friends and family gatherings that I prefer, but with a new job (yay hubby!) we now have more time and more money to accomplish those projects and throw some parties!

Do you like to throw parties and backyard bbqs?  Do you want to step up your party planning game?  If you are looking for some ideas on how to throw an awesome Summer BBQ, then you have come to the right place my friends!

Here are 8 tips to throw an awesome Summer BBQ:

Stick with the Staples

You want to throw a great summer BBQ, yes, but you want to enjoy it too right? Then stick with the staples.  Burgers, dogs, potato salad, etc.  That’s what people go to BBQs for anyway!  Don’t get too stressed out about making a special menu.

Make it a Pot Luck 

Invite your guests and let them know they are more than welcome to bring a side dish!  The more the merrier and the less work for you.  Most people like to contribute too. 🙂

Keep Cold Drinks on Hand

When you are having a summer BBQ, it is imperative that you have to have drinks on hand to cool everyone down!  Cold, refreshing beverages can make or break your party!  Especially during the heat of Summer, you need cool drinks on hand.  Try out our favorite Refreshing Blackberry Iced tea, it always gets compliments!

Yard Games to the Rescue  

Break out the yard games to keep everyone having fun.  We like to do frisbee golf and horseshoes, but  you can always go with badminton or volleyball, depending on how much room you have.

Get Your Playlist Ready

Don’t you just love technology?  Instead of someone having to man the CD player, you can now create an awesome playlist (I do ours on Amazon Prime) and have the perfect playlist.  Hook up your phone or MP3 Player to a great bluetooth speaker and that’s it.  We use the UE Boom and we love it.  It’s waterproof, great for outdoors and it sounds fabulous!  I do recommend getting a darker color though, our white/blue one is pretty stained up from being outside so much.

Simple Decor 

I don’t go crazy decorating, but I do love some strategic yard string lights and Citronella torches.

Don’t forget Dessert

You can’t forget dessert!  Maybe go with a great fruit salad or, if you are anything like me…keep the grill out and start grilling those fruits! I love grilled peaches served with vanilla ice cream.  Yum!

We are going to have so much fun this Summer!  Do you have any tips that you would love to share on how to throw an awesome summer bbq?

Our Visit to Oregon’s Painted Hills

Have you ever been to the Painted Hills in Oregon? We have now been there twice. The first time though, it was about 100 degrees outside and we really couldn’t spend too much time outside enjoying the view. The second time though, wow. This past weekend, we got the chance to visit the Painted Hills when the weather was just right. 60 degrees and sunny!

We have had a very stressful couple of weeks and my hubby decided that the family needed a break from it all. He told us to pack our bags because we were headed to Central Oregon (my favorite place!) for the weekend. Some of our very best friends live in Prineville and they graciously invited us to stay with them for our trip, which was awesome! We love to spend time visiting with them and since we planned to do a little tourist-ing while we were there we didn’t have to worry about invading their space too much. What was that tourist-ing we were planning? Well, our second trip to Painted Hills, of course! Painted Hills is about 1 hour and 12 minutes east of Prineville, so it was a bit of a drive, but well worth it since we were already that close!

Where is it?

For those that don’t know, Painted Hills, is part of the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument which is located in Wheeler County, Oregon. Wheeler county is one the least populated county in Oregon and as such there is lots of wide open spaces, the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument included. There are over 3000 acres included in this monument and the Painted Hills are listed as one of the Seven Wonders of Oregon. Painted Hills got its name from the many layers of colorful rock which corresponds to different geographical eras in which they were created.

Here is a breakdown by color:

Black – This is lignite that was once vegetative matter

Grey – Mudstone, Shale & Siltstone

Red – Laterite Soil (formed by floodplain deposits)

Painted Hills are a very important geological area due to the abundance of fossil remains of camels, horses, and rhinoceroses.

Another important note is that Painted Hills was considered the premier location to witness the 2017 Eclipse as it featured over two full minutes of totality.

While There

To get to the main viewpoint for Painted Hills you must walk up a one half mile trail that features several benches along the way. This photo shows what you will see from this viewpoint. You are highly encouraged to not veer off of the trail due to the sensitive soil within the monument.

little rebel

There are several other trails there at the monument. Sadly, we have only done the 1/2 mile hike to the viewpoint. I mentioned earlier how hot it was the first time we visited and this time I had completely forgotten to bring the stroller for our toddler. We had to carry him the last 1/4 mile on the 1 mile round trip hike and I didn’t think he could handle any more walking. That being said, I will definitely return again soon to try out the other hiking trails!

You guys! I literally cannot describe the beauty that is Painted Hills. I have been to the Grand Canyon before and I truly believe that the views here rival that of the Grand Canyon. The colors are like no other that you have seen before and when surrounded by the magnificent backdrop of a beautiful blue sky, you will be amazed at what nature can do.

If you are in Oregon or you are planning a trip here soon, I highly suggest you take a long road trip and head on out to Wheeler County to check out Painted Hills. The drive is beautiful and the destination is well, well worth it!

Our Visit to SEA LIFE Aquarium in Tempe

I received complimentary tickets to SEALIFE Aquarium for my review, however all opinions herein are my own.

On the same day that we got to visit Lego Land in Tempe, we got to go right next door and check out SEA LIFE Aquarium. Who would have thought that some place so cool could be right smack in the middle of a shopping center? SEA LIFE Aquarium is filled with amazing sea creatures and even has a tunnel that you can walk through and have the sharks swimming right above your head! I love that part!

Our group included 8 of us, my husband and I and our 3 children (ages 14, 11 and 2) and also my brother in law, his girlfriend and 7 year old son. We all loved this aquarium. I don’t think that we loved it quite as much as we loved Lego Land, but c’mon, that place was epic!

I am a big lover of aquariums and sea life though. I love seeing them float through the water and interact with other sea creatures. There is just something so peaceful about it. Watching the sharks swim above you in the tunnel is fun and peaceful, yet a little bit scary and thrilling. Watching the stingrays glide across the bottom of the water was so interesting as the seem so perfectly in tune with the water. I don’t know, I probably sound like I am babbling, but I just love watching all of these amazing creatures move around.

There were quite a few fun little portals that the kids could stick their heads into to make it feel like there were in the water with all of the neat sea creatures. My two year old and my 7 year old nephew loved this part!

I will say though that this aquarium was on the smaller side and was quite busy, so I am thankful that I didn’t bring my stroller with me, because I feel like it definitely would have been a hindrance to our experience.

One thing I loved about this aquarium and honestly, most aquariums that I have visited is how much you can learn while there. There are informative signs throughout the entire aquarium. You can learn about the creatures themselves as well as threats to their entire populations. It is intriguing and helpful to teach children about the importance of sea life and the health of our oceans.

If you happen to be in the Phoenix area, and you are looking for a fun afternoon for the kids, I highly recommend taking them to SEA LIFE Aquarium and LegoLand next door. It is a fun and educational way to spend the day with the kids. They will love the fun rides, the neat sea creatures, the awesome exhibits and they can even watch a fun 4D Movie while they are there. Plus, all you need to do is head on over to their websites and you will probably find a discount or two. 😉 For example, right now you can save $5 off of your entrance fee to SEA LIFE Aquarium, and I believe you can find further discounts if you buy your tickets to both attractions at the same time.

Have fun, my friends!

LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Tempe, Arizona

I received complimentary tickets to LEGOLAND Discovery Center AZ for my review, however all opinions herein are my own.

We recently took a little vacation to Arizona which I will tell you all about soon, but one thing that we did in Arizona that the entire family loved is our trip to LEGOLAND Discovery Center in Tempe. On this vacation there were 8 of us, my family of 5 as well as my brother-in-law and his family of 3, including his 7 year old son. When I first reached out to LEGOLAND about this trip, they told me that LEGOLAND DISCOVERY CENTER is really marketed for kids up to age 10, meaning that my older kids (11 and 14) may not like it as much. For this reason, we kind of expected this trip to be solely for the little kids, which was fine because we wanted them to have a blast after all of the traveling (we all know how much little ones love airports and planes, am I right?)

Let’s back up a little first. We landed in Phoenix on a Wednesday morning with plans to visit family on Wednesday, travel to the Grand Canyon and Sedona on Thursday and Friday and then come back Saturday morning to visit LEGOLAND Discovery Center and SeaLife Aquarium that day before we flew out Saturday night. Well, let’s just say that Mother Nature did not want to cooperate with our plans. That’s right, the road to the Grand Canyon was covered in 2 feet of snow, and our Sedona tours got cancelled. So.. instead of a quick stop on Saturday, we decided to take as much time on Friday as we wanted to explore LEGOLAND and SEALife Aquarium which worked out perfectly because it was super rainy that day, making it the best day to be indoors.

I couldn’t be happier that we were able to dedicate more time to visiting LEGOLAND because, my friends, it was fun! I’m not just talking about the little kids either, every single one of us (ages 2, 7, 11, 14, 24, 26, 39 and 43) LOVED this place. The LEGO builds were amazing, the rides were fun, the indoor playground was a blast and the 4D movie was a hit! Trust me, getting a 2 year old to sit through any length movie is a feat and boy did this do the trick. Between the fun glasses, the realistic characters popping out of the screen and the water and bubble effects, we could have easily stayed for another showing. 🙂

I have never been to the big LEGOLAND theme park in California, but I have heard good things, so I was excited to visit a compact version of it in the Tempe LEGOLAND Discovery Center. I knew that there would be a couple of rides, but I assumed they would just be for the little tikes since it was indoors. The first ride that you come across is Kingdom Quest and all 8 of us hopped on! You are each given a little lazer gun where you practice your target shooting skills! It was actually really fun for all of us. The next ride was Merlin’s Apprentice and oh my goodness, the kids loved it! It was two people per car and the faster you pedal the higher you go!

There was also a restaurant/ food court there and while we didn’t eat there ourselves, there were quite a few people that looked like they were enjoying their snacks.

If I had to say anything negative about LEGOLAND Discovery Center it would be that I struggled to let my little one play in the brick pits only because I tend to be a bit of a germ-o-phobe. However, kids were having an amazing time in there so that is probably just me.

So, if you are here because you are looking for a LEGOLAND Discovery Center reviews, I highly recommend this place for big kids and little kids alike! You are going to love it.

Cute Bird Egg Bath Bombs

We all love self-care gifts, don’t we? Or, am I alone in this? Seriously, I love opening gifts to find bath bombs, sugar scrubs and bath sets. It always makes me super happy. How about you?

Speaking of bath bombs, are you looking for a cute DIY Valentine’s Day or Easter gift that won’t break the bank? Bath bombs are that gift! Especially these cute, Bird Egg Bath Bombs. These work so great for gifts for any occasion, Valentine’s Day, birthdays, Easter, Christmas, Anniversaries…you name the day and I can almost guarantee that a bath bomb will make a great gift!

Homemade bath bombs are awesome and way better than store bought kind. You can make them any scent you want and you know exactly what is inside of them, so you don’t have to stress about any hidden ingredients.

As an added bonus, they are much easier to make than you may think!

DRY INGREDIENTS

1 pound baking soda

½ pound citric acid, fine grain

½ pound Epson salt, fine grain

.5 ounce kaolin clay

1 ounce Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA)

¼ to ½ teaspoon micas – in your preferred color

WET INGREDIENTS

1 ounce sweet almond oil

1 ounce essential oil of choice (I used equal parts peppermint, eucalyptus and rosemary for the birds nests and equal parts lavender and magnolia (this is a harder one to find) for the bunnies)

.5 ounce Poly 80 (for micas)

¼ to 1 ounce alcohol

Measure out the dry ingredients in a container except for the mica powders.  A plastic shoe box works well for this. 

Mix the ingredients well. 

Combine the essential oil, poly 80 and sweet almond oil in a glass container and stir to combine. If the scent seems too light, add a little bit more essential oil, but not a lot because essential oils do contain medicinal properties and you can overdo it. 

Pour the scented mixture into the dry ingredients, a little at a time and mix well with a spoon or a gloved hand.

Add the alcohol to the mixture ¼ ounce at a time.

Mix well after each addition, again using a spoon or gloved hand.

Continue adding the alcohol 1/4 ounce at a time until the mixture looks like wet sand. Normally one ounce is plenty, but if the mixture is still too dry, add a little more alcohol.

Once the mixture looks like wet sand, pick up a handful of the mixture and squeeze it together to make a ball shape. If it does not hold together, there is not enough moisture in the mix.

If the ball holds together, hold the ball above six inches above the bottom of the bowl and drop the bath bomb ball into the bowl. If it stays together, the mixture is ready to press into the molds and if not, add a little bit more alcohol until the mixture holds together.

Remove approximately 1/4 of the mixture and put it in a second container. 

Measure the blue mica powder and add it to the new container. 

Stir or use a gloved hand to combine the mica powder with the mixture. 

Now add the green mica powder to the container with the larger amount of bath bomb mixture in it.

Stir or use a gloved hand to combine the mica powder with the mixture. 

When both mixtures are ready, place a small amount of the blue mixture into the bottom of the mold.  This mold set works awesome!

Finish filling the mold with the green bath bomb mixture.

Make sure to use enough bath bomb mixture to fill the mold, but do not overfill it*.

Now fill the other side of the mold with the green bath bomb mixture. 

Be sure to add a little extra to the center of the mold so when you press the mold together both sides will adhere to one another.

Allow the bath bombs to dry overnight in the mold, then remove one side of the mold so air can circulate around the bath bomb. 

Leave the other side of the bath bomb in the mold. It is ok to remove it just for a moment and then put it back if you are worried about the bath bomb not releasing from the mold.

Set the mold containing the bath bomb aside and let it dry for two to three days, then remove it from the mold.

Your bath bomb is now ready to use or if you are not ready to use it, wrap it in plastic wrap and store it away from moisture and sunlight.
