Fire Fighters To The Rescue - With Cookies

All last week hubby and I were out of town taking our last child to college. He is starting his 3rd year in the Engineering program. We decided to make a vacation of it and see the sites of Portland. The college area is very different than the rest of Portland. It was a VERY busy city. I signed us up for a bicycle tour which we really enjoyed. The tour was led by a girl not much older than my son and yet she was so knowledgeable on all the facts of the city. I absolutely loved the bike tour and so did hubby and son. At the end of our vacation, we helped Nick move into his dorm. I was extremely emotional. I like it when my children are home, but of course our job as parents is to teach our children to be independent and capable and self-sufficient. I'm excited for Nick and I'm thankful that I have my daughters and the grandbabies that are local. Now we are back home and back to cookies. I made some Fire Fighter cookies and had so much fun with them.

Fire Fighter blog background for today:


  1. I don't know which I like better - the cookies or adorable Aidan! Glad you got to enjoy Portland a bit! Good Luck to your son and I'm happy to see you got out & about, especially following your disappointing "staycation", lol!

    1. Thank you so much Joni! I'd have to say that my model was cuter than the cookies, but I'm okay with that ;-) and yes, vacation was a whole lot better than staycation ;-)

  2. Don't know which I like more - the cookies or adorable Aidan! Good luck to your son in college this year. And I'm happy to see you got out & about in Portland, following your "challenging" staycation, lol!
