Over the 4th of July Simplot closed their plant for a few days giving Eric about a weeks worth of time off that was paid and didn't come out of his vacation time.
We ended up driving up to Portland so Eric could get this thing in
Honestly when Eric's dad said he was going to put in a gold crown, I thought he was kidding.
But alas, he was not!
Now Eric has a pretty shiny tooth in there that if things ever get really tough we can hawk on the black market for a couple pennies.
Miss Preslie also had a couple cavities filled.
I promise we brush our teeth people.
Apparently lots of high fevers contribute to a weakening of the enamel on your teeth, and makes it easier to have cavities.
Well if there's one thing we have plenty of in our house it is fevers.
So dental work, done.
Then we just hung out for the rest of the trip.
We saw Monsters University (seriously, adorable).
We had a family BBQ for the 4th of July.
Eric and I went to the fireworks in Happy Valley sans kids which was incredible.
We had a date night.
Read stories with Grammy.
Played with lots of toys.
Visited the Enchanted Forest.
And went to Ikea, of course!
We also forgot our camera.
So the entire trip is only documented in pictures from our iPhones, unfortunately nothing too spectacular, but it still captures the memories.
