Timberline Lodge

We signed up for this homeschooling trip to Mt Hood a while ago and Simon and I ended up being sick, poor Simon with a double ear infection. But, he still wanted to go and the room was already paid for. Simon and I mostly snoozed the evening away in the hotel room but it was still nice to see the snow and enjoy a cozy meal in the lodge restaurant.

I forgot my camera, so phone pics is the best I could do.

Timberline Lodge was built as part of President FDR’s New Deal back in 1936. It has wonderfully solid woodwork but updated furnishings, throw rugs and Pendleton wool blankets folded over the foot of each bed. The kids got to watch a Christmas movie in one of the community media rooms and then hear a bedtime story. Then we gazed at the piles of snow out the window and watched Lord of the Rings, thanks to a DVD that was left in the TV.

Simon had some baby teeth pulled recently and is sporting the “checkerboard” look. His tooth fairy haul that night was impressive!
