Hot Days, Cool Trees

The girls headed right for the shade of the trees to find relief from the hot sun.  They were happy to stay there the entire afternoon.

The Love of a Dog

It was a fun drive up to Hood River and around the back side of Mt. Hood to Lost Lake.  What a great place to camp!  One of the best parts for Sir Bradley?  The loves on the way up.  The man and his hunting dog are quite attached.  =)

We've Been Away


Anyone care to venture why we were sleeping elsewhere last week?  Does anyone recognize this???

Plum Jam!

Come pick some plums.  That was music to our ears, and what we couldn't enjoy as tasty treats were thrown into the pot for plum jam.  Oh, the colors!  Holy cow, it tasted good.

And it's important to mention jam-making was preceded by FORTY MINUTES of dancing in the kitchen.  My heart held.  Does it get any better than this??

View From A Bike

Oh, it feels amazing to be active!  Recovery has been slower than expected, but I'm gaining ground every day.  We enjoyed a week away for some much needed R&R and I got to ride a bike for the first time in many, many years!  I think I was crawling along at about 2mph but it felt like a joy ride!
