To the Valley

 Carl was NOT happy to have these ribbons & bells on him! But put up with it as Brian did it to him  :)  You can see he is bearing up well. 
Have not seen anymore of Chloe as i decided to go to the valley to visit friends.  I needed to get away and Brian needed some space for a bit.  I need to see what is happenin' in the McMinnville/Portland area,  It was very snowy going over the pass... Santiam,  Nothing coming down, but packed on the road.  Just stayed in the gravel part and just sailed over at a slow speed, with no probs at all.  It was very beautiful...all the snow and trees.  the berm at the top was higher than the car, and it is not a low rider  :)
 Here is Chloe's little foot prints in the snow...  :)  she was so cute- did not listen to her Mom at all to stay on the side walk or her feet would get wet and cold,  just merrily went on her way where she wanted to go, in the deepest part of the yard...  right alongside the more packed down part, where she would not have gotten wet.  hee, hee, me, i can do what i want.. Mom, better get used to that.....

  1. Children, and listening to their parents, - nope. Doesn't happen. Poor Carl. He looks so disgusted and he's so cute. Way too much snow up that way. But it sure is pretty from a distance.

  2. lol... Carl ... oh, hahaa... jeeeez that's cute!

    wow Look at Three Sisters... beautiful!

  3. Love that picture of Carl, he's so funny! Glad you were able to get away for awhile, and made it over the pass o.k. That can be so nasty up there on the Sanitam, as you well know. Thanks for sharing the snow pictures. I'm getting to that point in life where I enjoy the snow in pictures, but won't go out of my way to find any of it. Used to love to ski, but that was when I was a lot younger and energetic! Have fun and enjoy the city!

  4. Thanks for the Chloe update. Glad to hear that you made it safely over the pass!

  5. What beautiful snow pictures. Snow on the Evergreens...just gorgeous.

  6. Oh and Carl was extremely cute himself even thought he looked so humiliated.

  7. Glad Carl is picking up admirers. He looks pretty disgusted with the whole thing. I would be too if someone made me wear bells. Glad you got out for such a lovely trip.

  8. Enjoying your blog, but still have no idea where all this is. Florida? lol.
