May Activities at Oatfield Estates

Adams & Hood Houses<

May has been a perfect month…lots of incredible weather and fun activities. We began our month with delicious strawberry shortcakes with vanilla ice cream at Tebo’s Restaurant. After all, strawberry season came early this year!! We just had to indulge!

Another favorite outing was to the Schreiner’s Iris Gardens, just outside of Salem. We got a little stiff on the way there due to the distance, but it was all worth it!! We picked up Subway sandwiches and had a picnic lunch, when we first arrived. Then we toured around the grounds finding ourselves astonished at how many different varieties of Iris there are! The weather was perfect and we found ourselves having a wonderful time.

There was a very special Tea-Cup and Topics for Mother’s Day. We called it “Mothers and Daughters Day,” because it includes all of our lovely ladies at Oatfield Estates! All of the Chefs contributed delicious finger foods. Sarah, the Activities Coordinator for Rainier, had everything decorated and beautiful. Our Mothers and Daughters hopefully felt the love on their special day!

We’re looking forward to the outings planned for June. We’ll be visiting Al’s Nursery, where we’ll be picking out hanging baskets for our porches. Then, we’re going out to the Evergreen Aviation Museum, where we’ve set up a presentation by one of their knowledgeable staff members. Later in the month, we’re planning on eating petite sandwiches and cakes, while drinking tea with our pinkies up, at the Dollhouse Tea Room. A trip to the Portland Memory Garden will finish out our month.

Fun Outings

March provided day after day of beautiful sunshine. The scenic drives were full of different shades of green, pink, red, and white blossoms accenting the rolling hills in Scholls & Hillsboro. Breathtaking views of Mt. St Helens and Mt Hood were evident.

We all took a trip to McMinnville’s Evergreen Aviation Museum to view a 3D movie about the 787 Dreamliner and the A380 Boeing jets. We learned how each jet was engineered and the problems that took place while trying to meet the delivery date. While watching in 3D it felt like we were in the planes and could reach out and touch them.
