Coffee Kids

Coffee isn’t just a beverage in the Pacific Northwest, it’s part of the culture like the tulip and raspberry fields, ferry rides and rain. It’s an event.  I took the kids for coffee while we were waiting for Eric one day and asked them what they wanted.  They glanced at the menu and rattled off:

“12 oz white chocolate mocha with whip”

 (“spruce” on the cup is the size)


It kinda cracked me up.  When I was their age, coffee was just coffee-gross and bitter-something adults drank with breakfast-never in the middle of the day. I would have had no idea about ordering coffee like this. But there you go.  A sign of the times and living in the Pacific Northwest.

    Paden has discovered coffee. Decaf only for now, and only on the weekends.

    But the days we stop at Starbucks before school, he still tries to sneak one by me….

      What’s his favorite Starbucks’ coffee? My kids all have sweet tooths at the moment so it’s only the sweet mochas and things for them.
