What’s The Big Deal With Nursing In Public?

A friend recently posted a blog post written by their pastor’s wife about nursing in public.  I knew I probably shouldn’t read it but I did anyway.  I was actually pleasantly surprised by most of the post but the very end got me as it was exactly what I expected.  I let it get to me and I shouldn’t have but I am so dang tired of being told to cover up when nursing.  I am a Christian and think that modesty is important.  I do my best to dress modestly.  I think that we shouldn’t be shaming moms for how they decide to feed their babies.  For me, it boils down to this: If you want to nurse covered, go for it.  If you want to nurse uncovered, go for it.  Why are we projecting what we think is right on someone else?

Enjoying The Beach

We decided to stop at a consignment shop we passed a few times on 101 in Gearhard, OR just because it was something to do.  Believe me, neither of my girls are in any danger of going naked.  We were tired from the previous day and a morning walking around Cannon Beach.  So we headed to JoAnn’s (and got more duck fabric, YAY!) and on the way back to the hotel stopped at Watch Me Grow Kid’s Resale.  It’s a fantastic consignment shop! I must admit I was surprised by how much I liked the store. The prices were excellent (I got 11 items for $13.25) and the owner, Tanya was super friendly.  While we were talking with her, she mentioned to us that there was a beach near by that we could drive on and not have to deal with the soft sand like we had to the day before at Cannon Beach.  I love driving on the beach because it’s not something I grew up doing.  It’s pretty common here so feel free to laugh at me because of it.  Mom was all for it because we were in her Jeep with 2 wheel drive.  Plus she had never driven on the beach so it was a new experience for her.

Haystack Rock

On our way back to Seaside from our morning at the Tillamook Cheese Factory we stopped in Cannon Beach.  Mom wanted to see Haystack Rock, a well known tourist destination on the Oregon Coast.  When The Man, Punkin and I visited in April we didn’t see it so it was a new sight for me.  I was a little tired from the factory tour but am always up for the beach.  I just love the ocean so I wasn’t going to say no!

Visiting The Tillamook Cheese Factory

When mom said she wanted to go to the Oregon Coast, she mentioned that she wanted to visit the Tillamook Cheese Factory.  Since I’ve been wanting to visit too, it worked out perfectly.  We love Tillamook cheese and their other dairy products.  I’ll admit I will buy store brand cheese but when there’s some room in the budget Tillamook is what we get.  I had never had it or heard of it until moving to the West Coast but it’s quickly became a favorite of mine.  It’s just so tasty!

Riverfront Park in Spokane, WA Part One

In August The Man, Munchkin and I traveled to our niece’s wedding in Helena, MT.  It was 520 miles and even though it’s doable in a day, we decided to break the trip into two days.  We spent the night (both ways) in Spokane, WA.  We got there in the late afternoon (driving with a pregnant lady= lots of potty breaks!) and wanted to get out and explore and let Munchkin burn off some energy.  We did some internet searching before heading out and I found out about Riverfront Park.  It sounded great, with a carousel and other things to explore.  Once we found our hotel we dropped off our bags and headed out.
