Silent Saturday - Now THAT'S What I'm Talking About!
 
Spring mornings just don't get better than this! Well worth waiting for.
I so needed a morning like today:  Flawless blue skies, a shining mountain, the smell of fresh cut grass for the first time in five months, flip flops on the feet and dozens of Little Leaguers all pitching in to clean up their ball field in time for games to begin on Monday. Our son, Ben, plays on the Parkdale Little League Majors team, who was joined by the minors, coach pitch and t-ball teams to rake, sweep, … (8 comments)

In small towns, volunteer fire departments are the backbone of the community. The Parkdale Volunteer Fire Department in Parkdale, Oregon is made up of 33 volunteer members and two paid personnel, providing fire protection to over 5,200 citizens.

Friday's Foto - What Are You Lookin' At?!
 
These are the horses that live across the street from our house in Parkdale, Oregon. They were pretty wet and sleepy still as I took their picture early this morning. Maybe it's just me, but they seemed to be thinking "What are you lookin' at?" (maybe with a Brooklyn accent?).

Friday's Foto - Behind The Waterfall
 
Mel shot this photo of our boys, Sam and Ben, from behind the Tamanawas Waterfall on Mt. Hood, about 25 miles from our house in Parkdale, Oregon. The two mile, moderately easy hike into the waterfall is one of our favorite hikes in the region with quite the reward for the trouble... the waterfall.

Speechless Sunday - Mt. Hood's Snowy Grandeur
 
Mel took this lovely photo of Mt. Hood covered with winter snow and framed by a delicate branch. Neither of us ever seem to tire of photographing our volcano which seems so different in every season and from so many varying angles. He took this photo just a couple miles from our house in Parkdale, Oregon, but zoomed in on the mountain.

Speechless Sunday - It's Front Porch Weather!
Finally, FINALLY summer seems to have arrived and so far it's been glorious. I'm not a big fan of hot weather either so our 75 degrees is pretty much perfect. We pretty much live on our large, wrap-around porch during the summer...

 
The view from our front porch:
