To market

June 30, 2011

They say that Portland has more farmers’ markets per head of population than anywhere else in the world.  I’m not sure that’s a fact but on Thursday afternoon there is one in the church car park a couple of blocks from here so Mum and I decided to take a look.

I've become quite the strawberry connoisseur.

I'm a fan of the freshly squeezed lemon juice too. Mum said it would help with our sore throats. Ahem.

Time for the obligatory boogie. I kept dancing towards the jar of money. Mum said we were only allowed to put money in and not to take it out. That hardly seems fair!

Pre dinner raid

Hmmm, what's there to eat? I can't wait for Mum to finish cooking dinner.

Peanut butter. That'll do it.


Vote for me!

The photo of me driving Mum’s car with Sally as my passenger has been selected for this week’s Parents’ magazine photo faves.  I’m currently in 46th place!  Wahoo!  Please vote for me by clicking on this link.  (You can vote once a day until Sunday US time).

They selected this photo from my album.

Hunting for Meow

June 27, 2011

This morning before heading off to my office for the day I tried to find the neighbour’s cat.  I called “Meow! Meow!” at the top of my voice but he didn’t come to see me.  I’m wondering if I got his name wrong, but that’s what he seems to call himself every time I see him.

Heading into our neighbour's back garden to look for Meow.

Early to bed

June 26, 2011

Papi has gone to Kentucky (for work, apparently, but he said something about fried chicken too) and Mum and I have sore throats and blocked noses so it’s early to bed for us!

All tucked in with Lucy and my Peter Rabbit quilt. Sweet dreams!

Finally, after several rug shop excursions we made a purchase today.  It wasn’t in the style we were originally looking for but it’s good enough to boogie on so it’s good enough for me!

A boogie before bed on the new rug.

The cover up

June 24, 2011

I don't know why Mum tells me to sit down when I'm drinking. It's not like I'm going to spill it.


Thank goodness Lucy will cover for me. Mum will never know.

The result of staying up all night

Teething is HARD work.


June 22, 2011

No, it wasn’t me graduating.  I only just started at my new office this week!  But it was so much fun celebrating with the big kids that are leaving us and going to school after the summer.

I was captivated by the tap dance performance by the big kids.

Us little kids got to perform as part of the celebrations too. I loved it. I wanted to go up the front for every performance.


A good dose of vitamin D

June 21, 2011

It's officially summer today and finally I can wear my shorts and get out to grab a good dose of vitamin D.

And get in a spot of training.

I was knackered after 10 hill sprints.
