My daughter, the lucky thing, is on a cruise! So . . . that leaves grandpa and me to babysit! Well, it's what I like to do, so we left on a little trip of our own yesterday, Memorial Day. We went to Silver Falls State Park near Silverton, Oregon. Their site is: http://www.oregonstateparks.org/park_211.php
Ten falls tumble from the beautiful canyon walls made from ancient lava flows. It's so ancient, that trees and other growth have covered the canyon in most places and you would never know it was there! We climbed on a tree, counted it's rings, went wading, hiked to the falls, (well, actually, the girls and my husband did all these things, while I took pictures); and, of course, we had a wonderful picnic.
I'm not getting much crafting done this week, but Kayleigh and I will be making a little birdie pillow like the one in my shop; this one for her room. Or maybe, she says, she might give it to her teacher. I'll get back to serious crafting next week when my daughter returns.
