Happy Birthday, Chase!


Today is Chase’s 6th birthday, can you believe it?  He decided that since an active volcano was out of the picture, he wanted to spend his day in the bubbling hot springs in the Hood National Forest.  A 2 hour drive lead us to the Bagby Hot Springs trail head, where we hiked through Enormous 200ft+ moss covered spruce and cedar trees 1.5 miles into where the springs are.  There are several wooden houses with 5 communal and 5 private tree-carved tubs which can be filled with the 139 degree F water being moved through the wooden flumes and piped to each tub.  Ahhhhhhhh.  What a neat place to spend a birthday. 

After a 2 hour soak and hike out, we drove back into Portland where Chase saw a Chuck E Cheese’s billboard.  Okay, it is his birthday after all.  That was fun, too.  Since he was 2 and saw the play place on PBSkids for the first time, Chase has wanted to visit one.  He was crowned when we arrived, had his picture taken with the one and only Chuck, was sung a few birthday songs, and given lots of extra tickets and an ice cream sandwich with a candle in it.  Needless to say, we are all quite exhausted after such an exciting day.
