It really felt like a long trip, because we did so much every day that we really made the most of our time.
There was a jetboat ride on the Willamette, wine tasting, waterfalls, beaches, mountains, lakes, roses, playing around, snuggling, barbecues, stories and more. Continue reading “A visit from Aunty Nicola and Max”
As autumn gets into full swing, we still made sure to get out of the house, rain or shine. Continue reading “October – November 2017”

Here’s a variety of photos from April to June this year. Continue reading “April – June 2017”
