We've spent some time hanging out in various campsites.
And riding for hours in the tow vehicle for our trailer.
Or in the trailer.
Storing up energy for some fetching play in various fields, like this dog exercise field at Champoeg State Park in Oregon.
On our last evening in Champoeg we had dinner with DH's brother.
Then we went on to Beaverton for DS2's preschool graduation on the Nike campus, followed by snacks.
We managed to fit in a trip to the Oregon Zoo in Portland. They have a great large bird show with various birds from all over the world flying over the audience, right over our heads. At the end of the show, we had the opportunity to give donations to the vulture, who deposited them in the donation box.
Mandy rocks the steampunk costume, with the petticoat and corset finished. I should have more to show next week. The sleeves are done on the Braemar, and already CO for the body.
Off for wine-tasting today, the pups are at doggy daycare, and the boys to school. Stay tuned.
What's on my needles: Three Steps petticoat and corset finished. Now working on the Braemar coat.
What's on my Featherweight: Put away for now.
What's on my loom: Still waiting.
What's on my wheel: Stanzi also still waiting.
What's on my iPad/iPhone: Finished Hacker Mom by Austen Rachlis. Listened to Rachel Abbott’s Only the Innocent again, this time with DH as we traveled. We both enjoyed it, even thought I sort of remembered how it went. On the Kindle app, finished Dying to Read. Now reading Undeniable by Laura Stapleton. Not sure how I like it yet.
What's in my wine glass: Lots of everything. Wine tasting today.
What's my tip of the week: A tired pup is an obedient pup. Keep ’em tired if you can.
