Oregon Country Fair 2009

Hello! The fair this year was wonderful. We all had a great time. I had been preparing for weeks to sell a few things at the fair but after the last minute trip planning and deciding to go a day early I just didn't have the time to make that happen this year. On the bright side I will have several new things on my Etsy shop in the very near future.
We camped at Quiet Camp this year which was quiet the first night...maybe only due to the rain outside. A really sweet couple camped next to us, they had two little girls who became instant friends with Sophie. They shared their pancakes and cocoa for breakfast, and the mama did Sophie's hair and painted her face for the fair.The perfect camping neighbors really...unlike the loud annoying teenagers on mushrooms on the other side(but that's another story).
We left a day early .....only to avoid a huge rainstorm on Sunday...I heard it was quite the muddy mess. Whew..

I loved the sink at our camp.
The only thing this picture needs is bubbles.

It was a long walk from camp to the gates.

It was the 40th year of the fair!Make way....

...make way...
....make way for the magic......
...of the dragon.

This cute lady painted many a boob.

Look, even Jimi Hendrix was there....
This is my favorite costume.

Finally, a little space to run free.
I love this sign....

Solomon: A self portrait

I love finding random pictures by Solomon on my camera. Lots of slobbery chin close ups and photos of the couch and blurry pictures of the floor. But I just had to share this one.

Half Birthday Celebration

Hurray for the sweetest boy I know! 18 months already?!
Solomon is a very busy little guy. He loves cuddling up to read books although he lacks the patience to finish one. He is saying several new words a week. Tonight before bed he touched my head and said "head" and then he poked my eye and said"eye" and then "Euce"(gross).He is deadly afraid of bugs, mostly house flys.
We celebrated the day with a trip to the zoo with Sophie , and then we walked down to the toy store in the evening to let Solomon chose a new toy. He happily found the stroller at the end of the store and couldn't give it up. He tried it out with his monkey when we got home. I am sure it will get a lot of use over the next few years. Good choice Sollie.
Thank you for coming into my life. Here's to you babe.

I mean, come on.....
Goat buddy.

Trying out the goods.
