Indian Style Salmon Bake

A few weeks ago Depoe Bay had its 59th annual Salmon Bake! Do you know of any events that have been going on that long? It just seems crazy to me. Anyways, it was a good time and Richard’s cousin was in town visiting from Portland which was really fun. I’ve never met anyone from(…)

Board Game for Toddlers

Missing Moby

Missing Moby

    Now that Fall is here, I am thinking a lot about past Fall days and I keep coming back to this picture of Moby. I was still pregnant with Adelaide when this picture was taken and Moby was just starting to change his behavior a bit around me. He could sense a big(…)
