Fall Leaves

Healing Garden

The other day Kelly had to help with interviews for new medical students at the hospital in Lebanon. I had heard about the garden there and tagged along. I would hope that the patrons and staff use it because it was beautiful. Not huge but very nice. We just loved the Koi or Japenese Carp.

Light flares and Shadows

While Kelly was with Carl shooting. Clara and I went for a walk along the canal. A little ways down there is a bridge that is fun to sit on. This time it smelled gunky and of course the water is gone for the winter but I always enjoy this walk. It was particularly fun this time with Clara because we pulled apart Cat Tails and other plants and brushed them under our noses.

Horses and Kittys

Every day at Grandma and Grandpa's house we went out and feed the horses apples and pet the cats. The apples were so tasty. I know that the horses are really missing us. I am not so sure if the cats miss us at all.

On a drive out to Jackson we checked out how low the reservoir is.

Temple Sealing

This photo make me think of the sealing power and reminds me what happens in the temple. That families can be together forever through Heavenly Fathers plan.

Grandma's Doll House

I am a little green with envy that it is my moms and not mine. When we were visiting I was always happy to clean up the room that the doll house is in just so I could have a good excuse to spend some time playing with it.

Picking Grapes

John was in charge of holding the bowl till Kelly and I started picking. Because after that he couldn't be trusted not to eat them. The grapes made a beautiful and delicious juice that we drank for breakfast.

Sunday Dinner

Grandma and Grandpas house is tons of fun. All the cousins climb through the laundry shoot to the other side of the wall but in this case it is Tate's feet we see with Madison watching in disbelief. Danny is looking through lenses that are tinted the primary colors. Each lens can move individually thus creating psychedelic viewing. Clara is in tickle torture and Mae is protesting on her behalf.

Leah and Yoda

In the second photo John is playing with Kelly's light saber app. It is a source of much entertainment. Thanks Brandy and Madeline for the costumes.

Wings of Wonder

Wings of Wonder is a Butterfly atrium in Independence. They boast the biggest in Oregon. They also have snakes and lizards that John liked more than the butterflies. The best part was that Kelly got to come too. I know there will be three sad people at my house when he has to begin his GI rotation.
