The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!

We went and saw this movie this weekend and it is AMAZING!!!  You have to see it in 3D, that means you can't wait to watch it on DVD.  If you don't want to pay the crazy prices, remember that the Milwaukie Cinemas has a 3D projector and will probably be showing it for $4 in the next few months. has a great review of the movie.  I did think that it could be a little scary for younger kids, but nothing crazy.  Things flying at you is part of the 3D experience, and they do it great in this film! You actually will do some jumping and dodging.  If your little ones don't get too easily scared, I think it would still be good for them.  The action keeps going and the movie is entertaining the entire time!

What did you think of it?

Alpenrose Egg Hunt Fifty-One derful Years!

A press release from Alpenrose Dairy.............

ALPENROSE DAIRY—the Hunt is BACK on, rain or shine!

PORTLAND OR – Last year Alpenrose Dairy Easter Egg Hunt got rained out for the FIRST time in 50 years, but the Annual Easter Egg Hunt is back on for the 51st year which will take place March 30th the Saturday before Easter.

What can you anticipate? Excitement is a definite as well as a colossal amount of prizes for the kids and let’s not forget…an appearance by the world famous Easter Bunny.

This free event is hosted by Alpenrose on the pastoral setting of the 97-year old dairy and has become a special treat and tradition for families and their kids since 1962. The vast amount of acreage at the dairy makes it an idyllic setting for the hunt and families often make this an entire day event by packing a picnic lunch.

The day’s egg-citement begins at 10:30 AM for kids ages 3-5 as they hunt for chocolate eggs, toys and other fun treats. The hunt for kids ages 6-8 will begin at 12:00 PM. The Grand Prize for kids will be 14 six-foot Easter bunnies. Children often end up with a bevy of treasures from the hunt.

“Hosting the Easter Egg Hunt is a real thrill for us and given the fact that we had to cancel due to the rains last year this years hunt is even more special to all of us at Alpenrose,” stated Alpenrose President, Carl Cadonau Jr. “It celebrates 51 years of what Alpenrose loves most, giving back to the community. It’s great to see how our event has become such a great family tradition here in Portland and we look forward to all the kids coming out and filling their baskets.”

Alpenrose officials are encouraging egg-hunters to arrive early since parking is limited. Alpenrose Dairy is located at 6149 SW Shattuck Road in Portland.
