A T-Rex Story by Clara

One day Annie (a T-Rex) was looking for her mom and she couldn't find her. So she went creeping through the evening and she saw a cave. She crept into it but found out that her mother wasn't around. Then she sat down and cried (whimpering sounds). Then she found her mother lying down in the cave - she had been asleep.

Then Annie ran and ran up to her and gave her a hug. A big stomp from her mother frightened her and Annie ran away but then she ran back to her mother.

Annie found a bunny tied to a balloon and she tried to balance the bunny on the fan but then bunny fell off. Then she tried to put then bunny on the lamp and it fell but then she tried a different place on the light and the bunny stayed there.

The End.

Boulder Lake Camping Trip!

We finally decided to go for a family camping trip. We drove and drove and drove and some of the driving was on a bumpy dirt road. We got to the trailhead and hiked for a while (quarter of a mile) and we picked out a campsite near Boulder Lake. They call it Boulder Lake because, ummm, there are big rocks there.

All the camping stuff is so exciting! Putting up the tent, building a fire, fighting off buggies, cooking over a tiny stove, hanging food in trees, sleeping in a is hard to sleep! I couldn't fall asleep for a long while but, once I fell asleep, I was asleep. There was even a thunderstorm in the distance and the dogs freaked out and I slept through all the commotion. Mommy and Daddy said that I've never slept so well camping and they seemed very proud.

Of course with camping, we're up with the sun! We were all really tired the next day. It is good that we explored and swam in the lake the day we arrived. We had some oatmeal and headed home. Can't wait to do it again.

Fourth of July! Trillium Lake Style

We went to "The Summer Cabin" for the Fourth of July. "The Summer Cabin" sometimes refers to a small cabin near Trillium Lake (Mt Hood) and sometimes refers to a smaller cabin near East Lake (not too far from Bend in the Newberry National Volcanic Monument). Anyway, we had a lot of fun. We played in Trillium Lake and caught newts!

We also went for a hike to Little Crater Lake and Timothy Lake but there were sooooo many mosquitoes! It was a little miserable. Luckily there were butterflies and pretty flowers to make up for the evil biting bugs. Seriously, evil, even the dogs were miserable.

Daddy and I (and the dogs) had a much better hike another day near Lookout Mountain. Tons of flowers and butterflies in the meadows! There was snow, too, that kept us from reaching the top but I enjoyed running around in the meadow instead. We almost didn't find our way out of the meadow but Daddy said, "Flip it, Buddy!" and Scout led us out immediately. He's such a smart sniffer dog!

I love staying at the cabin. This cabin had a window right by my bed so I woke up nice and early! Hope you had a great holiday too!

My first ride on my first bike!

First bike with two wheels (and a couple extra training wheels)! It's fun but I gotta practice!

Happy Birthday to me!

I know I haven't been bloggin lately but I'm a busy girl! I had a great birthday! Grandma and Grandpa game to visit for my birthday. We celebrated with a cake that Mommy baked from scratch just for me (white cake with chocolate frosting and pink roses!).

We had another party after my birthday with my school friends at the park and we decorated our own cupcakes and played on the playground (and played with bubbles, balls, hoola-hoops).

I know no one is really keeping up these days but I did go to the doctor and I'm about 39 pounds and 39 inches but I'm growing really fast!

While Grandma and Grandpa were here, we also went to a cool playground that I've never visited before and Oaks Park. I got to ride a real pony and the carousel.

Winter is Wonderful

I know, I know. I don't write that often! There's good reason! I'm busy, busy, busy enjoying life! Christmas was really great. How can I complain about a holiday that involves giving and getting presents and cookies! I also really loved having snow here in Portland. Last year, I was a bit hesitant to even walk on snow myself but now I'm ready to enjoy it however I can! I like to snow hike and go for snow runs and I've been trying out my (plastic) cross country skis. Of course, Mom and Dad (Dad, mostly) drag me around in sleds too! That's mostly good for napping. This year is also my first year of snow balls and snow angels. I didn't know what I was missing being hesitant! What fun!

I really like school still and lately I've been playing soccer during our outside time. I keep telling Mommy and Daddy about how I "tackled" someone. I think they're wondering how hard I did it. What can I say? I knocked my friend down (in her princess dress and shoes)....I guess that was kind of hard. I helped her up, though, and all was okay. I'm still trying to figure out how it is okay but the teachers said it was okay. I'll get it all figured out soon.

At school, my favorite "work" is painting, yoga, working with clay and making almond butter and jelly sandwiches. I've started to tell Mommy and Daddy about songs we sing at school and trying out bits at home. I'm also learning more letters and sounds and how to count better. I'm counting all the time now. Just counting stuffed animals, pieces of food or whatever else is around. I've also decided that it is good to help myself sometimes. I asked Mommy to put some food and bowls where I can reach them (but secure from dogs!). Daddy came home from a ride one day and I was making myself yogurt before Mommy managed to roll out of bed and downstairs! Mommy keeps the ice cream and other sweets out of my reach for good reason, I guess.

Check out my gallery for pictures that I take with my camera (Christmas present) and for pictures of me baking, in my mermaid outfit and checking out treats from Germany. I'll try to write soon. Hugs and Kisses!
