It's Awww Monday and April Fools Day! April 1, 2019

Last Saturday we actually went to downtown
Vancouver, Washington for the first time
since we moved! It was a gorgeous day and
we had a lovely time and a delicious brunch.
The photo above is my attempt of making a collage...
I need to find some online software better
than what I have at the moment.
But, it will do for now!
This is the I-5 bridge that crosses the Columbia river.
On the south side is the state of Oregon. Not much traffic
on Saturday but it is a traffic nightmare on week days.
It is the biggest chokepoint on all of I-5 from 
the border of Mexico to the border of Canada.
Not so Awwwsome !
Meanwhile here's a cute Awww Monday photo...
Two of our former neighbors with
adorable little goats....hard to say
which duo is cuter!
Have a lovely day!


  1. Biggest chokepoint is not a plus.
    I almost thought those were cats or dogs rather than goats.

  2. Such a pretty place and those goats sure are cute!

  3. Sounds like a fun day.

  4. Two beautiful couples. Happy Monday!

  5. Kathe,

    The goats are adorable! While house hunting, we passed a small farm with a bunch of goats and their kids. I wanted to snap a picture but there was no place to get off the road. :(

    I hope y'all will find time to check out my Little Mermaid Art Sketch series beginning with ARIEL on Curious as a Cathy!!

  6. I'm well aware of that bridge. It's awful. Portland is bad too. Don't know about the weekends, but during the week it's pure misery.

    Awww on the goats. They are most adorable.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

    Have a fabulous Awww Monday, Kathe. Big hug to you and Russell and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

  7. LQQKS really nice there I like the collage looks good to me I like the pics of your former neighbours too heheh!

    Have a baaatastic Monday :-)

  8. Baby goats are so cute, especially when they jump around.

  9. Beautiful pictures, those baby goats are awwwwwwsomely cute!

  10. I would love to visit Vancouver and your photo is darling! I use www.ribbet.com for my collages and there is another one for the phone that is totally free, it's called "Layout"....if you have an iphone you can get it at the app store for free. I use it all of the time.
    Today is my Cody's birthday!

  11. Baby goats! So adorable! Traffic is a nightmare period. IN Denver tragic events unfold because people refuse to pull aside for emergency vehicles. It is a sad state of affairs, this world of ours. I will keep smiling about those baby goats. Thanks for sharing.

  12. Definitely an 'aw' photo ~ goats are adorable!

    Happy Day to you,
