Tumalo Camping

Every year we go camping with a group of homeschooling/unschooling/gentle guidance families and this year we went to Tumalo in Central Oregon, near Bend. It was a fun fun fun trip, I took a bunch of pictures until I dropped my camera in the water. Oops. At least the memory card was okay!

maddy and alayna watching the sea lions - such grace and beauty....

so excited to be on TOP of the polar bear den

three little polar bears

Maddy doing her Michael Jackson routine

three little lionesses

always our first stop (well, after the potty that is!) before we head in the main gates. not sure of the attraction, but it sure is a hit.

If you want to see some funny videos, come be my friend on facebook and check them out there.... :)

birthday celebrations and summer fun

maddy and odessa blowing up balloons, those girls have some powerful lungs....
merry go round and round and round and round and round and nobody has died on one of these yet.....

ready to go to the farmer's market.... can you see Maddy's leftover butterfly face paint mask

kind of odd picture of maddygirl, but it does show her beautiful butterfly face paint mask she got at the zoo.... we waited in ninety degree weather for over an hour to get this done.... she was so excited and determined to wait... it was pretty impressive and i was so glad she really did get it because we were one of the last ones, the artist stayed past her official time to finish us up because we'd waited so long, what a nice gal! she was there as part of the celebration for the new lion home at our zoo.

a typical scene at our house at any given moment. she loves to read in the nude, what can i say?....
