Ben joined us out at the beach! Also, there were gifts. The kids got a set of four X-Ray books, which they found pretty neat. Ben was delighted to open up a 12 pack of Portland’s own Olympic Provisions salami, one of each exquisite flavor they make. I received a copy of Paleo Indulgences, which the kids made me go through with them page by page and read each title. They danced and “hurrahed” throughout the reading. We have a lot of new recipes to try!
