Took the family to the Oregon Zoo and had a blast. The polar bears are always my favorite. So much so, I was just looking at my zoo pics from last year's trip, and I used my pic of the polar bear as my daily back then, too.

More here.

My Stitch & Bitch group went in together on a yarn swift and ball winder. Yay for co-op tools! The boys and I had fun winding up lots of yarn, see?

three ribbons

After talking about it for several years, I finally got it together and entered some of my work in the Lane County Fair. I entered three quilts and three photographs, and was so incredibly pleased to see that I won three ribbons!

Went to drop off my quilts at the fairgrounds and spied the carnies setting up the midway already! The fair doesn't start for another nine days!

I got the best pic of Otto and Henry sharing the headphones from my iPod (rocking out to Lady Gaga, who they love) on my cellphone, and I thought I saved it, so I just took kind of crap pictures of the kids the rest of the day, thinking I was going to post the cellphone pic as my daily. Only when I went to send the pic to myself it wasn't on my phone anymore. Cry, bitch, moan, pout. So here's a shot of Henry looking really hot instead.
