Well, we have two more pics from our camping trip. Danny was able to make them blog appropriate for me…
When we were camping Owen had some major fear about using the outhouse/pit toilets. They were cinder block and so his screaming just echoed. The poor little guy was TERRIFIED. Danny was able to get him to use it once. I wasn’t so successful.
In the afternoon of our first day we went to a nearby fish hatchery. The kids enjoyed seeing some of the huge fish and they were able to feed them with some fish pellets.
The kids did really well getting to sleep. They were snuggled up to each other when we went in the tent. It was really cute. And they slept all night:)
Last weekend we went camping at a place called Camp Sherman by the Metolius River in Central Oregon.
The water was achingly cold, but somehow those kiddos were able to get in up to their knees. Daisy was in heaven!
I’ll share more of our adventures tomorrow.
Last week Danny had a class up in Seattle. We were able to farm the kiddos out to grandparents and Auntie Katy and Luke (thank you guys!!) and head up there for 3-ish days.
When we got into town we went and visited with Danny’s brother and sister-in-law and our little nephews. It was so good to just sit and visit for several hours and catch-up on the last couple of months.
The next day Danny had class and I got to go explore downtown on my own. We stayed in a hotel that was in a good location (right by the library) so I was able to walk and see everything on my list, except this place…which will have to wait for next time. I hadn’t ever gone out on my own in a “big” city so it was fun to do whatever I wanted and to see that I could go and find my way.
That evening we went to visit Jamie, one of my best friends, for dinner and had a wonderful time. I hadn’t been to visit her in Seattle in 10 years, just before Danny and I started dating. Long overdue. On the way back to the hotel we stopped and got ice cream bars and this was our view…
The next day we were in a hotel across the street from this place
I also got to have lunch again with Jamie.
When Danny was done with his class we went out to dinner and then took dessert over to his brother and sister-in-law’s.
It was nice to get away, but as always, I missed home and missed those little rascals!
We went on a trip to the beach while my sis was visiting from North Carolina. Grace got to take some pictures with her (my sister’s) iphone and use the instagram app…(am I using the right lingo Kaeley?)
the octopus at the Hatfield Marine Science Center
There is this fantastic creek at the beach that runs down to the ocean. The water is warmer and more calm than the ocean. Daisy loves it too because she can drink it and clear out some of the sand. The kids love it because they can play in it, and where it meets the ocean it is the best of both worlds, the ocean surf and warm creek water.
