Sunday Summer Scenes

We enjoying a very lazy Sunday today so we're going to show you some scenes from around our city that might require a double take. We'll start with this statue that looks pretty predictable right? Did you predict this?
On the Oregon State University campus we find this trailer proudly stating that they are Supporting Student Athletes... As for supporting our state, they prefer to support Arizona... And finally, here's our city's aerial fire engine...
It goes 104 feet (32 meters) up in the air...
That's was our Mommy way up there in that bucket! She's the short one on the left! The tall one on the right is our Grandpa from Kansas... Good thing there wasn't a fire alarm while she was up there!

Hope you enjoyed our photos while we enjoyed our nap!

That statue is very cool. I did not predict the front of it correctly though. Very funny with the trailer's license plate also.
Now just what is your mommy doing way up there in the air like that? You must tell us the story :)

Simba said...

That statue was something else. Yikes. Love the bucket ride on the fire engine. Bet that was a lot of fun. Oregon, Arizona, they need to make up their minds. Great pictures. We enjoyed this silliness. Take care.

OH MY GOSH! Monny envies you this great experience and no..I would never have predicted what was on the other side of that statue! :-)))

I think I'd probably have to stare at that statue for hours on end. Really!
The plate on that trailer made our mom laugh so hard! She loves things like that!
Your mom and grandpa are very brave to go up in that fire engine bucket!!! Were they rescuing a treed kitty? Ha roo!

How exciting for your Mommy to ride way up in the air in that bucket! Was that on her bucket list? LOL!

Pretty Pretty Swicy said...

Nope, didn't predict the other side of the statue. And that trailer/liscense plate gave me a chuckle. While seeing your mommy acting like a bird was fun.

Nice! I definitely got a laugh out of the statue and license plate. I'm sure that the fire truck experience was very cool!

The statue is hilarious! Oregon is home to a lot of creative folks from what I have heard and read:)

And no way will you get my up in a ladder like your mommy! I don't like being any taller than 5'2".

That was very brave to go up so high on the bucket and it is such a great way to have the community learn about the members of the local fire department.

Grrreta said...
