Camping Trip

We just went on our first camping trip of the year. There was a nice variety of weather - sun, wind and rain, to keep things interesting. ;) Still, it was a wonderful time and we loved being out of doors through it all.

Long Hike Short Legs
Fina and Kaya went on a long hike into the forest.

There used to be gold mines around here, and Fina searched for a nugget in a pile of tailings. She never found any gold, but hopes to go back and try again.

Top of the World
The views here are amazing and worth pondering.

Domos Climbing
Meanwhile, the Domos did a bit of mountain climbing. Go, Little D!

Mountain Town
One day we went to the nearby town of Rollinsville. It's tiny and hasn't changed much in the last hundred plus years.

Mei Mei
Mei and Fanchette (her bunny) spent most of their time looking for wildflowers.

Evenings in the Mountains
While we were camping I knit Mei a sweater set for the cool evenings.

Mei at Sunset
The sun was setting here, giving a glow to Mei's face.

Storm Clouds
And finally, the view from our camp. Puppy snuck into the photo in the lower righthand corner! :)

A Good Summer Read

A Good Summer Read, originally uploaded by melimeli (all4dolls).

Coco found a great book for summer reading. She has a funny feeling that she is going to really like this one. Maybe that's because her full name is Clover Anne. Coco is just a nickname.

The Wool Market

I took Coco to the wool market up in the mountains yesterday. They had animals, people spinning wool and lots of gorgeous yarn. Here are some pics, with commentary by Coco:

Who does your hair?
Who does your hair?

Can I take one home? Just one?

So you are made of wool?
So you are actually made of wool?

I'll take this color!
I'll take this one!

Don't Eat Me!
Don't eat me!

Pool Party

The best thing to do on a hot summer day is have a pool party. Fina invited some friends over for a dip.

Pool Party
A shot of the whole gang.

Wheeeeee! Fina loves the slide.

Lifeguard On Duty
Coco is on duty as the lifeguard, always keeping her two big eyes on things.

Catch Me!
"Catch me!" says Little Domo.

I'm Okay!
"I'm okay." says Poppy, who is actually afraid of the water. I think Coco should give swimming lessons.

Kiddie Pool
And finally, Thyme has her own ducky tube to float around in.

Winky in Fairyland

Today I took Winky to the creek when we went for a walk.

The Path
We followed a path into the woods.

Winky listened to the babbling of the creek. She seemed to understand what it was saying.

This stump was the perfect size for a seat for a tiny fairy.

Tree Spirits
She looked for fellow fairies in the hollow of a tree.

Tiny Winky is a great little companion to take on a walk.
