Medford Trip

For, literally, years I've been wanting to plan a trip to Medford.  Though I didn't grow up there, I did spend several significant years there as a teenager; and I've been longing to show my girls all of the places I loved in Southern Oregon.

Since we still have so much family there, our limited trips are always short, and spent at a specific function {reception, party, birth, etc.}  We never seem to have time to just mosey around, visiting.

I was so happy that we finally made it happen a couple of weeks ago!

My mom and I took the girls down a couple days early, and Jeremy and my dad met up with us later.

On Friday we drove to Jacksonville, an ADORABLE little town I used to love to visit.

The weather was wonderful, and the scenery gorgeous.  Beautiful Fall colors everywhere.

We met up with one of my favorite people for lunch at one of my favorite places ~ The Bella.

We're just going to pretend that we had a wonderfully quiet lunch full of sweet conversation and delicious food ~ Instead of the full-on screaming from a certain one year old who shall remain nameless.  Sigh.

The day didn't exactly unfold the way it had in my mind.  There wasn't much window shopping for me since my little ones were coming down with a virus, and Tay was cutting three molars.  But I'm happy we made the trip anyway.

I have no desire to go on another trip any time soon.  But I am glad we made it happen ;)
 We even had a few moments of silence out of Tay.  Especially when she got to meet up with her little cousin again.  She LOVES the bay-bays :)

Too funny about the lunch. I can totally see how that might have gone.

I'm glad you got to go! Great pics!

I love your pictures, and I can't believe for one minute that your beautiful baby girl was anything but an angel :)

Wow, beautiful pictures of a beautiful town. I can see why you wanted to introduce it to your kids.

I'm going to have to go to that little town. I've never been actually TO it, just drove past the exit.
I want to window shop in Ashland too. :)

What a neat little town! It's so clean!! Most towns in TN are not nearly that clean. Kind of sad.

I don't think you have to spend much time in a place to become attached to it. Your teenage years are pretty important ones, too. I get sentimental about all the places I went when I was growing up, even if I only lived there for a short time!

That looks like such a cute little town! My outings don't usually go the way that I imagine them either. At least one out of my three is always grumpy about something which manages to put a damper on our plans!

Looking at your photos makes me long for a small town visit too. Next time, I'll go with you and we'll tag team that certain one year old! :)
I hope the girls are feeling better!

Oh those unpredictable children, it just makes us appreciate all the quiet well behaved times. Charming town.
