Kate and I visited one of the best parks in the city, Laurelhurst Park. What a fun day! I loved playing on the teeter-totter with her and we had a lot of fun chasing each other too. This park is HUGE!
Mom also took some photos of Kate and Sara together. For more photos of Kate, continue on to the next blog.

Today we went to the zoo to meet the two-week old baby elephant. I was pretty excited to meet the newest member of the herd and although the wait was almost an hour, I was patient and am so glad to have gone. We happened to get in at a time when the little guy was napping so I didn't get to see much of him, but he was sure cute!
I also got to ride the zoo train with Kate and of course had a great time! We saw Elk along the way and the birds used in the Birds of Prey show. What a fun day!
Do you like my hat? I didn't want to wear it when I first got it, but this morning I asked Mom for it. I think Kate likes it too.
Kate really likes to kiss me, as you can clearly see. Can you blame her?

Mom, Dad and I have been trying to do some last minute fun stuff before the summer ends. It's already getting cooler and we are getting more and more rain so I feel fall is just around the corner.
This past weekend, however, the weather was perfect for our trip to the Oregon State Fair. We met up with my friend Bodhi and his fam for a fun day. I got to see tons of farm animals. Quite a change for this city boy!
The pigs made me a little nervous when they oinked, but I loved petting the bunnies!
I loved sitting on the tractors!
Here's a video of Bodhi and me dancing to the awesome fair music.
I also went to ride the merry-go-round at Jantzen Beach today with Kate, our moms, and grandmas. What a fun time! I wanted to go again and again and again... I'm sure we'll go back for another couple rides 'cause Kate and I loved riding the carousel horses!
Best Friends Forever.
After we rode the carousel a few times, we had lunch at the Island Cafe where I got to see boats driving by and I even got to feed some ducks and one big goose!
Tomorrow we are planning to go see the baby elephant that was recently born at our local zoo. I love summer outings!
