Pumpkin Picking

Welcome to fall in the northwest!

About ten miles north of portland is Sauvie Island. This weekend a couple a friends of ours took us in their car and we visited the farms there. This picture is a view from the island. Notice the floating cottages. It was a perfect day to be there!

We went to one of the farms to pick pumpkins. We even got a hayride out to the pumpkin patch.

We smuggled someone along with us too!

Brian (with carmel apple), Renee (with Olive), Christie (with coffee) and Charles (with hat).

Our shoes and paws on the hayride.

Olive was content to ride like this, Brian was content to keep eating his apple.

Oooooo, identify the shadows.

Making a decision at the patch was harder than we thought...

Here's why (the perfect pumpkins are out there somewhere)

This one looks good.

Renee's October Show at Josefa Kate Gallery

Street View

The show went really well and Renee got a lot of interest from it as well as some sales too! The show is going to be up until November 15th, and started on October 2nd, so she is getting a lot of attention from it. Here are some of the photos of the show itself and the set up. She decided to paint a gray stripe on the walls to change things up a bit and to keep the space looking fresh. We both had a blast at the show including Olive!

Puppy Love

We went to the coast, had a friend visit from Michigan, Renee had an opening and we MOVED. Yet all we can seem to post are pictures of this darned puppy.

We promise more pictures soon...

Poco Replacement

SURPRISE! Someone new has moved in. Olive (Olivia) is a Minpin mix, quiet as a doodle and was housetrained after the first day.

She's also a fan of relax and comfort. Sorry for the long absence in posting. More to come...
