Mother's Day

Despite all the posts about other projects this is, believe it or not, a children's clothing shop. And my lovely children and husband gave me a wonderful Mother's Day on Sunday. We went for a hike in Portland's amazing Forest Park, played foosball, painted mugs together, played soccer, rode bikes, did monkey bars, and ate delicious food. 


Forest Park is home to amazing hiking trails, but also the Witch's House. It's an amazing abandoned stone building that has a slightly witchy vibe. If you're ever in Portland, it's worth the trip.


We had so much fun and with the exceptions of jackets (REI) and hats (Patagonia) the kids hiked in all Gee Betty clothing. Theo's pleated pants are just the long version of the Fox Dreams/Hipster Impala Shorts, and his blue hoodie was Violet's at one time and has been in use so long that I forget which pattern it is (not available in the store). Violet is wearing Plum Crazy Leggings and the Puppy Love Sweatshirt.


My husband hiked in the Thread Theory Henley that I sewed up a couple weeks ago as a very late Christmas present, and I hiked in a tee that I sewed up years ago and I somehow didn't get a picture of. At the end of the hike, the kids both confirmed that they were comfortable and warm in their Gee Betty duds despite Oregon's unpredictable spring weather. Happy Mother's Day!
