Rob contemplating stuff.
What Jaydie (and anyone for that matter) caught when he was fishing.
I know half his face is cut off, but I just thought his one eye was really saying something here.

Nolie's sandy/cute feet.
Is Jaydie looking at his thumb to make sure he's got good form? We may never know. But look at how cute these three babies are.
We happened to see an adorable babushka girl there. Did you want to frame this Rocky?
Camping cuties.
Jaydie looks a tad too excited to be holding an ax. We didn't lose any fingers, so it's all good.

We did some camping with some of our party people a few weeks ago and it was loads of fun!! Of course you know I was not in a tent, we borrowed Grandma's sweet motorhome. This princess doesn't do tents. The boys want to live in a motorhome forever and actually Nolie wants one for his birthday. So you work on that.

Candy down in Newport. Since we didn't see any sea lions we had to buy their affections.
We climbed to the top of one of Multnomah's Falls. The other was a 1 mile hike; not really for me. Maybe if I didn't have a thyroid problem.
That's a Rastafarian back there.
I don't know what that building is or what that lady is doing.
Rob and the twins in the building where the green dinosaur was on the Amazing Race.
Coming down from the lighthouse.

So to summarize, we're having fun, you look young.

We followed our adventurous friends into Portland and saw all kinds of fun stuff. Here we are at the Rose Gardens. The boys are, of course, racing down the rows of thorny rose bushes in this picture. I would like to issue an apology to anyone that was there at the same time as us and actually wanted to enjoy the ambiance of the flowers. See if you can feel the ambiance in my pictures.

Look at these little doll faces.
Man, can I take a nature picture or what?? What did you say Kevin? If you want to frame this picture I don't blame you, just let me know.
6 kids in one picture = a small miracle.

That's Yenner's rear there, in case you couldn't tell. In other news, we didn't see any sea creatures this time but we did see 6 deer on the way home on the side of the road and they weren't even dead (yet).

I updated this blog. We had a fabulous 4th with family and friends, and anything else that starts with an F (oh yeah, FOOD)!! As you can see in these pics, there were so many small children there having a blast. We sparkled, we blew stuff up, we stuffed ourselves, and sang songs (I think that was just me). Thanks Papa and Nana for a grand Fourth of July. Anywho, that's it.

P.S. If you would take a look at the sidebar I've added a new feature to my wildly popular blog. It's called Deep Thoughts by Jayden (believe me there are many). I will add to it as Jayden blows our minds with his deep thoughts.

On our way to OR we stopped to pick up our Sacramento friends, the Pischke's, and went to a fun water park where Yenner ripped his toe open. No worries, nothing a little ice cream and a band aid won't fix (not necessarily in that order). This post is out of chronological order, please don't judge me.


Wasn't I just here in OR?? I might as well just move here I come so often (don't pee your pants Momma, I'm just kidding). It is lovely here and considering that Landscatter is like 150 degrees right now, there's no place I'd rather be. We are having some good times and hoping for no urgent care visits this time (one can only hope). This post is for you Momma, hope you enjoy and love you.
