i absolutely love going to kruger’s farm on sauvie island. we often go in the summer months to wander about, pick (and eat) berries and languish under the giant old oak tree.

our annual trip in the fall to the pumpkin patch has become a tradition our entire family looks forward to. this year was coco’s first time. we rode the hayride out to the patch, picked out our favorite pumpkins, explored the giant corn maze, ate homemade corn dogs, wood fired pizza, roasted ears of corn and delicious caramel apples! micah and i enjoyed some pints by captured by porches too. we were ready for a thunderstorm at any moment, but it waited until later that night. all in all, it was a perfect family day, complete with wild flowers, live bluegrass and sunshine!

maya wears a tiara

my friend sarah is amazing.  she organized an evening out for the ladies to celebrate my impending wedding.  first we had dinner at the screen door, then we went to tony starlight’s to listen to the sweet & smooth sounds of the 70’s.  kristy drove up from eugene and we got dolled up in our retro gear.  i found an awesome dress at bombshell vintage on burnside.  topped it off with some extremely uncomfortable boots i scored at st vincent’s years ago, peacock earrings i made and jewelry from kristy’s grandma.  here is a picture of alison, myself and sarah at tony’s.

The ladies

here is a choice shot of sarah and i.  note the peacock earrings and my magnificent bachelorette tiara.  the bronze belt is pretty sweet too.

we just got a new camera (panasonic lumix fz100) and most of the time it takes amazing pictures with very little effort.  this shot is distorted and i love it.

we topped off the evening with some really bad karaoke at the ambassador.  teresa sang white trash wedding and won pork skins & a miller high life!

we had a wonderful time!  (i must add that this was my first night away from the baby and micah was a sweetheart to watch her!)  here is a picture of them when i got home.
