A visit to the caboose
This morning we went to a 4-H event south of Portland to learn more about 4-H and see if it is something Christian would like to do next year. We were at the Clackamas County Fairgrounds and there is a train museum next to the fairgrounds. Liam has been wanting to visit a caboose. I was going to take him to a different place east of town, but since we there anyhow, we took the boys to see the caboose. The museum was closed today. There are many peach farms in the area, so I have a feeling that we will be down there again in the summer.
We enjoyed the 4-H event. The kids were showing chickens and rabbits. I loved angora rabbits as a child and when I saw them, the love was rekindled. They are just too cute. Since I am learning to knit, it would be fun to have a couple angora rabbits, then I could learn to spin yarn and knit things with.
For the time being, I will work on learning to knit scarves and dream of doing more later.
