Pig Races, Elephant Rides, a Circus and more.  At the Orange County Fair we saw baby chicks, watched a cow milking, sampled cheeses from all over the country, sat on a huge pumpkin and waded through the hefty Alan Jackson crowd- cowboy boots and all.

Where else can you twirl, spin and leap- ballet of course!  Amongst the pink tutu’s and dance shoes was Logan wearing his black skull and cross-bone leg warmers.

Watching two tots squeal in delight at the ocean always reminds me of how lucky we are to live in the Palisades.  Mountains, beach and friends- it really is a wonderful place.

 Alden just returned from a visit with his family in Bigfork, Montana.  90- year old Grandad is a neat ol’ guy and Alden was able to spend quality time with him.  Bigfork is a lovely place surrounded by the Swan River, Flathead Lake, lush trees, wild animals and gorgeous mountains.   Here are a few photos from his trip.
