Pet Parade and More
If you're in the Portland metro area, you should come to Bethany Village Center (off Hwy 26, near Tanasbourne) this evening. From 6pm to 8pm there will be live music, booths with give-aways and samples from local businesses, food, and local vendors (including me!). There will also be a pet parade! Prizes and fun with proceeds to benefit Dove Lewis Emergency Animal Hospital and Indigo Rescue. All well behaved dogs are welcome. Register your pet at the concert stage (on NW Central Drive) at 7pm. Costumes encouraged. $5 Entry fee. Parade to start at 7:20pm.

Family Fun
Yesterday me (in the pink shirt), my mom, sis, and nieces went to the Oregon Zoo. I hadn't been there in 3 years, so I was excited to go, plus it's always (well, usually) nice to spend time with my family. It was a pretty nice day weatherwise, although it was starting to get hot when we left. We got to ride the train through gorgeous Washington Park, see dinosaurs, come almost nose-to-nose with a cougar, see the inside of an elephants mouth, and briefly see a few chimps (my favorites). Despite her serious, sullen look, Quinn did have a fun time (she was just hungry and tired by the time we took the picture- and she's a total drama queen).
