Happy Wednesday, all!

Today we headed back to Portland. We first stopped off for a visit to the Hign Desert Museum - always lot's of fun -> www.highdesertmuseum.org . After a nice visit we ate lunch in the cafe. It was a tiny, tin bit challenging to find out which bread - if any - were safe for the girls. This however was resolved in one single phone call. Both hot dog, and hamburger buns are a no and whole wheat, and sour dough a yes. Yippee - Mia Rosie did get the turkey sandwich she so longed for ;) and Alena had no problem eating her hot dog without the bun. She had chips instead so who needs bread?! That was quite successful :)
For dinner we stopped in T Government Camp which is a out 1-1/2 outside of Portland. Great adult beverages, and good food. The girls shared a pepperoni pizza, and fries. Not quite the healthy and whole food we often try to strive for :) but it is still vacation after all. Well, at least until tomorrow morning when the alarm clock will bring us back to reality!
Have a great day!

Here is the lesson which I learned, everything is possible. There is no need to keep my children away from others out of fear that they may ear something they should not. Yes, I have not said this in a long time, but the sky is the limit. Everything is possible and Galactosemia certainly does not set any limitations on us, or our children.

Make breakfast, and lunch; drop girlies off at two different schools; work; pick-up Alena, pick-up Mia Rosie; make snack; start dinner; homework; read; play a little, and then bed time. It's a fantastic roller-coaster - truly :))) The snack offerings vary - yesterday it was Guacamole, chips, Edamame and Chocolate Soy Milk; today Hummus, Chips, Carrots, and Chocolate Soy Milk; what will it be tomorrow? Maybe Pretzles and Soy yoghurt?!
Alright - now it's time for this mothership to put her feet up :)))

Mia Rosie and I went shopping today in order to refill the pantry for another busy week ahead. Today we found lots of great treats to last at least a couple of weeks. Tofutti frozen Blintzes - I am thinking that they will be a gerat after school snack; Chocolate covered anana slices for a treat, and Dairy Free Mochi for desserts. Both of those are Trader Joes brand. The Mochi is filled with coconut ice cream. They Look beautiful :) - I am so excited that there are so many safe treats for the girls and also about the confidence I have found. For us Galactosemia is part of our lives, absolutely manageable, and in some quirky way also a gift. A gift, because it gives me perspective and recognize what's truly Important in life :) Remember the glass is always half full :)))

This morning we skyped with family as well as friends in Europe and then went out fo breakfast. Our pantry always seems to be empty when the weekend comes around and I am also worn out of the constant chore of making breakfast - lunch - dinner. Yes, I absolutely admit it :)
In any case, we spent the rest of this drizzly day at the Oregon Zoo. Rainy days at the Oregon Zoo are as it is the best crowd control ;) Ice cream at Ben&Jerry's after the Zoo was enjoyed by all - lemon sorbet w/chocolate sprinkles for both ladies - and we picked-up di ne at New Season's. There you have it - the mothership was a complete fail in the kitchen this weekend. Oh well...now here's to a fantastic start into the new week

We went to the Hedge House right around the corner. The girls played in the grass while Ronand I enjoyed a beer :) They have simple dinners and great beer. The girls always get the same - they share an PABST without the P. Are you wondering what it may be?! - A PABST is a Provolone, Avocado, Bacon, Salad, and Tomato sandwich with chips. The girls get an ABST which is without the Provolone. Delicious and safe :)
Pix is right next door to the Hedge House. Amazing desset most of are "unsafe" at Pix however there is always vegan sorbet, and generally another couple of vegan choices. Mia Rose chose a huge lollipop today while Alena ordered coconut-chocolate sorbet. Yummy - delicious. Wow - I am ready for the weekend :)
