taking a moment to find joy in the little things
June might very well be the most beautiful and colorful month here in the Pacific Northwest. If you are ever in the Rose City in June, be sure to visit the rose garden. We did just that thing earlier this week and it was heavenly. I wish I could somehow import the smell into the post, but you'll have to imagine. I've included a few pics of flowers other than roses...from earlier in the day.
We also spent some time in central Oregon this past week and had wonderful weather. We hiked to Benham Falls and enjoyed the beauty of the high desert.
So many happy moments this week...

Whenever we are in Sunriver, my girls love to visit the horses. Usually there are several out in some field or another. So we walked over to a field with three horses and they (the horses) came over to say hi. This one, though, decided to fully scratch himself using this post...by the time I thought to take a photo, he was scratching his backside. When he was all done, he took a step forward, lifted his tail and passed quite a bit of gas before walking away. Not quite the friendly greeting we were expecting!
My youngest is studying mammals in her biology book and last week learned about lions. She has to classify them as herbivores, carnivores or omnivores. I never imagined that a trip to the zoo would give her a visual of what it means to be a carnivore in the wild. But lions have to eat, too, I guess. Thankfully, there were signs warning us that a carcass feeding was taking place before we approached the viewing area.
