Photo Diary | Mosier and Marla |

Monday, October 28, 2013


Happy Monday! Phew we had an action pack weekend! Saturday we headed out to the gorge area, Mosier to be exact, which is a super cute tiny town along the Columbia River. It's very near Hood River which is the main tourist town around those parts (about 45 minutes outside of Portland). We went to our dear friend Una's 9th birthday party. It was a rollerskating party as you can see. This was a first for M+L and my back still hurts from trying to keep them in the upright position on their skates. It was a fun day and such a gorgeous day as you can see from the photos. We took our time driving back home as the sun was setting to take a little walk along the river, watch the trains and snap a few pictures. And that sweet adorable pooch you see there is Marla, she looks like a little puppy dog but she's actually a year old. She's going to be staying with us for awhile and oh my goodness she is such a little love bug. How was your weekend?

  2. Those mountain photos *are* stunning, and I love the train one, but Marla? Marla! That first photo where the sunlight is hitting all her sweet curly hair, she's just angelic. Welcome to the family, Miss Marla. I expect to see lots more photos of you. Violet (and the other girls) says hi. XOXO (I'm beyond thrilled for you!

    1. i am not a rollerskater, last time i went i fell on my wheel and fractured my tailbone. i got a little ahead of myself ;) but seeing little kids in those old retro skates? that was fun! glad you got out to see some art. i have been itching to do that myself lately. xo

  5. Marla! I love her! Can you keep her forever and ever? She's adorable beyond words, and so are those boys of yours on those wonderful skates. It's been years since I went rollerskating. Do you watch Modern Family? I just caught the episode where they all go rollerskating and it killed me. xo

    1. she is such a sweet pup. she's a little nervous being here right now so it's providing lots of extra snuggles and i am taking advantage of it while it lasts. xo

  13. oh the pictures of the mountains is so beautiful - I wish I lived near some :) And how cute is that dog? Adorable. My weekend was crazy busy and hoping this next weekend I can get to relax.
