We decided to brave the weather and take a little camping trip last week. There were two days of good weather stuck in between not-so-good days. We went to Cascadia State Park just outside of Sweet Home. It was beautiful; really cold at night; but, well worth the trip. The girls played in the river and caught a crawdad, tiny fish and a baby Garter snake.
This is my husband trying to warm up by the early morning fire. Doesn't he look like a camper-dude?

We were visited by a Spotted Owl who kept eyeing our dog until Mocha got up and the owl saw he was too big to carry off. He sat in a tree not 5 feet from us next to the picnic table. It was really neat.

It didn't rain on us this time!!!

The braces saga continues

Went to the orthodontist yesterday. Had my wire changed and made impressions for a bite plate and inserted spacers around my bottom molars (ouch!). This bite plate is supposed to sit on my upper palate and open my bite. I get it and my bottom braces on in 2 weeks.
