Long Overdue Update

Since I just got caught up on everyones blog, I thought I should sit down and catchup on my own....Where to start....
Well, at the beginning of the summer we went to Oregon and visited with family. Although it is usually an exhausting experience the kids enjoyed it thoroughly because they get to visit with their cousins and their Aunties and Uncles.
On the way there we stopped at Multnomah Falls and walked up to the look out point.

My sister took the boys fishing. They had a great time with their Aunt and I got to watch my great nephew Lucas.

We also went to the coast, but it was cold and wet.

Then we went downtown and checked out the Rose Festival events. It was a lot of fun.

We had a few good days of warm weather and went to my niece Delisa's and the kids swam in her pool and worked on their tans.

After a week we needed to head home, but on the way home, just outside of Hood River we got a flat tire. Luckily, Tyler was with us and he was able to change it. He wasn't happy that his shoes got dirty in the process.

The day we got home my sister Susi called and said she had a layover in Jackson Hole and we should come up and see her.....So back in the van we went and spent a few hours up in JH.We have done many other things this summer, and will fill you in on those when I have some more time to kill.
