Vacation 2005 – Monday, August 29

Today I managed to go for a run, which was good as Cheryl and I split a piece of Chocolate Peanut Butter Cheesecake at lunch, and Steve and Rachel purchased an incredible Chocolate Cake and I had a HUGE slice last night. I am trying to not gain weight on this vacation, so I ran.

Today was our day to tour Salem.

We walked around the Capitol Building, and then around Willamette University.
We also went to the Thomas Kay Woolen Mill, which is where we ate lunch and had the great dessert.

The rain clouds, however, were gradually building during our entire walking tour. By the time we were on the way back to the car, it really started to come down. We hopped from awning to awning, trying to keep dry. We even went into a bookstore for a while (and picked up a couple of books), trying to wait out the rain. But it just got harder and harder, so we had to make a sprint for it. Cheryl has not sprinted for a few months, and being 6-months pregnant slowed her down a bit. The good side of the whole experience is that we finally got all the dust from Fern Canyon washed off of the car, so we are a little less trashy looking in the rental than we have been.

Steve made his famous spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. We certainly are eating well this trip! We also watched some episodes of Curb Your Enthusiasm. It is really quite funny! I never watched it while it was on, but I may have to add the DVDs to our Netflix list now.

Tomorrow I think we are going up to Portland and finally complete our baby registry at Babies-R-Us.
