Sunriver - Part 1

It's been awhile for a number of reasons, one being the overwhelming volume of photos inevitably generated at our annual trip to Sunriver. To make it more managable (for you and me both), I've decided to break this into installments.

We'll start with the ever-popular swimming shots. We're going for quantity over quality here, or I'll never get through these. So no smart-alecky comments between photos. We'll see if I'm able to resist.

I did it!!

A Watercoloring Machine

While we were on vacation in Sunriver last week, Daphne took her coloring kick to a new level with watercolor paints. Here's one sample:

But this was the masterpiece of the week. And as they'd say at Cake Wrecks this would be a real rainbow-poop-inducer in real life.

Golfball Mommies

Time for a rare “Pete” blog.

I’ve never had a lot of interest in women’s golf, but since Daphne has shown a little bit of interest in learning to play, I thought a trip to the Safeway Classic LPGA event was in order. Thanks to a thoughtful friend (and reader – you know who you are!) we got some free tickets and headed off to Pumpkin Ridge for some Daddy/Daughter time.

Of course as we arrived, the skies opened in a torrential downpour driving the hoards into the “sample tent.” The bad news: wet people packed tightly into a small space, all angling for various samples.
The good news: free popsicles.
Once the deluge relented, it was off to the course to watch the “golf-ball mommies” (Daphne calls all adult women “Mommies”). She did a great job being quiet at the right times, and giving a polite clap after a good shot.
One highlight – South African golf pro Ashleigh Simon gave Daphne a signed golf ball, and won a tiny fan in the process.

We had a great time, and I think we’ll be back next year.
