Time for an old fashioned hoedown

Picture of me and Carson taken by my friend, Jack.

We packed up the kids (plus Manu) and headed out to Sauvie Island. Kruger's Farm hosted the annual farm hoe down. Music, dancing, hay rides to the beautiful pumpkin patch, corn maze, caramel apples, and to top it off a GIANT bonfire started by Farmer Don Kruger (with the help of some petrol). We all got pumpkins and even picked out one for Shelby. It must've been a good year for pumpkins because the field was full of perfect pumpkins. Carson got to hook up with Miriam (from the kayaking/canoeing weekend) who came from Hood River for the fun.

Fruit Loop

We took a trip with Sam's old preschool to Mt. Hood Organic Farms to pick Gala apples. The farm is not a U-Pick farm, but they open it up to the Waldorf schools in the area. The apples are crisp and delish but did we really need 45 pounds? We only caught a glimpse of Mt. Hood behind the clouds.


Why did I foster these puppies? They are up all night like babies. They pee on my floor. They have needle-like teeth.....But they are so darned cute. Everyone loves a puppy. Roxy (brown girl) will be leaving tomorrow and hopefully Yoshi (black boy) will be leaving within a couple weeks. He has no interested parties yet......
