Alpaca Farm

We visited an alpaca farm in July with Mindi, Mia & James. It was up off Skyline in Portland and the views were beautiful up there. We spent a couple hours seeing the alpacas, petting them, learning about them, walking around the grounds and playing on a little play structure. Apparently the owner of the farm & house is the youngest daughter of the/one of the Hewlitt Packard founders. It was a good morning........made better by the fact that I did NOT kill the baby deer that hopped directly into the path of our Jeep on the way there. Whew!

Pacific City In July ~ 2 Trips

July was a busy month! These pictures are out of order......I took the kids to PC in early July with my Mom, Sister Kathy & Niece Kelli. It was beautiful weather there and was close to 97 degrees when we left (that was when it was sooooo hot back in Portland). We had a fun time on the beach and went down to Lincoln City to shop at the outlets and have dinner at Mo's. **Yum!**

In mid-July we headed down for a quick weekend trip for Dory Derby Days. Here are a few pictures from the parade on Saturday. The weather wasn't all that great, but it actually didn't rain during the parade. It was a good day for C-A-N-D-Y......and the parade etiquette was much better than the 4th of July parade in Hillsboro. :)

An Impromptu Backyard Photo Shoot ;O)

These are pictures from July. Malia came home from spending the afternoon with Grandma Jeaneen and was dolled up with a fresh pony tail and some "jewels". Alex was just having fun digging in the dirt.
