9/5 - Bella Joy show in Gates at the Cascade Foothills Saturday Faire. This is the first year for this show and we really enjoyed the atmosphere and we hope to participate again next year. This was our second time at this one and it rained the whole time so that was "fun", but we're true PNWers so it didn't stop us. Megan and Brian knew someone that lived nearby so we called them up and borrow some tarps. I feel eternally grateful to those people because without those tarps it would have been miserable!
9/6-9/7 - Karl and I took an early anniversary trip out to Bonneville Hot Springs Resort. We weren't all that impressed with the resort itself (not much to do), although the food was good and the couples soak/wrap/massage was very relaxing! And we checked out the Bonneville Dam which wasn't exciting at all but since it's the only thing to do out there...
9/19 - My company picnic at a park in Wilsonville on the Willamette River. Tried to get a cute photo of us but once again he refuses to smile normal, I got him trying to frown while laughing so his punishment is me posting it on the blog!
9/20 - Trip to the Oregon Zoo to see the new Predators of the Serengeti exhibit and we also got some video of the cute baby elephant. Then we lunched at Joe's Crab Shack which was yummy and it was a beautiful day so we sat outside enjoying the Columbia River.
Long video because I just couldn't stop filming the cuteness, highlights are at 1:25 when he's scratching his back leg with his other foot, and then starting at 2:20 is some cute trunk cuddling and some chin and leg scratching.
PDX Zoo - 9/20/09 - Baby Elephant from Sarah Koepke on Vimeo.
And another video, much shorter, of him getting out of the water and the older elephant directing him where to go - or pushing him out of the way, it was hard to tell.
9/24 - HAPPY 4 YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO US!!!!
9/27 - Bella Joy show in Wilsonville at the Villebois Sunday Market. This was also the first year for this market and while it is still small I think it could be a great thing to be a part of as it grows. We froze our booties off but it was fun!
October update coming soon... you have Oysterfest and home-made marshmallows to look forward to :o)
