Hello my friends. Thanks for dropping by. My sister Denise and I volunteered at Multnomah Falls yesterday, and with all the rain we've had, the falls was full and roaring! During a deluge, I hiked up to the viewing plaza and under the cover of an umbrella managed to snap a few photos. I also took a photo of a couple of girls for them with their iPhone.
This photo is fuzzy, but it really wasn't easy trying to hold an umbrella and take a photo.
Then for the heck of it, I snapped one with my iPhone. Which one do you like best? This one or the first one? Can you see the rain drops falling?
The beautiful Multnomah Falls Lodge, I just love this stone building.
After we closed down the Visitors Center, sis and I met our two husbands for a steak dinner at Bumpers Grill & Bar in Wood Village. I forgot to take a photo of our filet mignon.. but you've seen them before.. lol!
Steve ordered an apple dumpling with 4 spoons. :-) It was a whole peeled apple, wrapped in dumpling dough and baked, served atop warm caramel sauce and vanilla ice cream. Yum!
My two granddaughters got their school pictures back, here is my sweet Jenna, she's growing up so fast! My daughter Amy enrolled her in sewing and crochet classes and she sewed her own pillow case and has crocheted cute things.. I just wish I was close enough that I could teach her things that I know and sit with her and make things.
Here is Paige, she is missing her two front teeth too. She's such a character, she loves to sing and dance and make jokes. She's a cuddly little girl too, much to my daughter's delight. Oh how I miss them!
I just finished the book below.. I couldn't put it down. It's set in Amsterdam in 1686. This is the author's first novel and my goodness, does she have an imagination! I was drawn to buy this book for my iPad because I love miniature things.. I have a Victorian dollhouse. There are some shocking things in this book, so don't hold that against me if you read it. :-) But it will make you glad you live in our enlightened society! I think. :-)
I have had a bit of a relapse - stuffed up head, so no swimming today (perhaps I shouldn't have hiked up to the falls in pouring rain?) - but we'll still be heading to the coast on Sunday. My next post will be from there. :-) ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
