Tillamook Cheeeeeeeese

So Jeff and I have been in Portland now for a month and a half. We finally decided, enough is enough. We NEED some Tillamook ice cream. Not the ice cream you get down the street at Safeway.... we needed the REAL stuff. So we packed up the diaper bag, threw the kids in the car, and off we went!

We first arrived at the Tillamook Cheese Factory. As we're walking through, we saw that they got rid of the cow displays they used to have! We had promised Cohen Cows on the way.... So we were kinda bummed about that. And also, the factory is kinda boring when there isn't much production going on! However, the cheese was fabulous, especially the squeaky cheese!! Then we participated in their ice cream. Holy COW... no pun intended! This stuff truly came from Holy cows!! That ice cream is so heavenly. Soooooo.oooo.ooooooo creamy. Oh my word, I miss it already! Cohen didn't eat any ice cream, but he did enjoy himself with the salt water taffy!

After the factory, we saw a sign for a petting zoo over at the Blue Heron Cheese factory. So we headed over there! It was really fun! I would HIGHLY recommend it! The animals were so cute, and they had a lot. Cohen LOVED it! I think that was the highlight of the trip! And after all, it was free! So that's what most of the pictures are of.

After Tillamook, we decided to drive up to Seaside and have dinner at our favorite restaurant, McKeowns. It is so delicious. I personally think they have the best clam chowder, EVER. It's sooooo yummy. Jeff had a delicious french dip sandwich, and Cohen just ate Jeff's french fries!

We had a wonderful day all in all. It was a very long day in the car, but it was still worth it. I love spending time with my cute little family!

Sounds so fun! And I can't believe how BIG Cohen and Molly are! I was shocked when I saw these pics of them-- even though it's only been about 2 months since I last saw them! My how they've grown. :) I hope you guys are well. Are you going to head this way at all for Christmas?
