We ventured home from Christmas at Grandma's on Monday the 27th. Knowing that I was coming home to a house that was empty of almost all food...I really didn't want to come back home and HAVE to cook dinner. (yeah...story of my life!) Needless to say I did propose that we stop off along the drive home and find something to eat...'for the kids.' I figured DQ in Manning would be the stop. Maybe a Wendy's in Hillsboro. My last minute thought went to the McMemanin's Grand Lodge in Forest Grove. What a great place. Service was archaically slow, but overall it was the perfect 'stop-off' destination for the Vail gang. Kids could run around the hotel. Food for hungry tummies. ...and I didn't have to cook!
