Feeling Crabby in Maryland

While at a friend's wedding in Maryland, I experienced my first crab feast. It was pretty awesome.

Meredith experienced her first oyster.

Seafood delights abound.

Automatic Timer

We had horrible luck using the automatic time to make some memories in the forest outside my grandparents house. Here's my favorite of the unsuccessful bunch.

I'm probably biased, but I think these pictures of Meredith playing on the beach in Yachats are pretty fantastic.

Double Birthday Dinner

I was in charge of setting the table, and got to use my great grandmother's china.

My grandpa's dinner plan demonstrates that my love of list-making must be genetic. (Also please note dinner's scheduled start time.)

Some pretty cool cards

I carried, but did not bake, this cake. It's a good thing I didn't bake it, because the experimental graham cracker chocolate combination proved highly controversial.

Cabin Modality

We spent part of vacation at my family's cabin on the Umpqua River.

Cabin modality equals sitting on the deck, reading, sitting around the fire, watching old VHS movies at night, sitting on the dock, and of course, ideal swimming conditions. Cameras are easily forgotten, but I did manage to snap a few gems that capture fun on the Umpqua.

I call this one, "Waterhorse Legend of the Deep."
