Okay, it's Grammie and Grampie's turn for the spotlight. Are you tired of Oregon pics yet? Well too bad, you're gonna have to look at them cause I think they're nice. We got to stay in two fabulous places when we were up yonder, and phase two of our stay was at hotel Grammie and Grampie.
Went to see tide pools but saw a dead sea lion and threw rocks instead. Isn't that just the same?
I am totally crunching (it's what all the cool kids are saying nowadays) on this photo of Daddy and Nonie!! LOVE it!!
Went to the beach and it was a might foggy and chilly. Didn't stop my boys though.
I'm not sure, but do you think Nolie had to go potty here? There are one million lovely walking trails where they live.

Doesn't everyone have the ocean in their backyard? That's totally normal right?

Cutest family ever award.

Daddy learned how to fish on his iphone and quickly taught the boys. Ahhh, just like the fishermen of yesteryear. So much fun I tell you.
Jaydie was an instant pro, of course, at casting the line. He had tons of fun with it.
Nana baked with the boys which happens to be one of their love languages; go figure. They had such fun with this.
Truly, there is not one single bad place or time of day to take a picture in Oregon. There is always greenery or a river or a large body of water in your background and it's always overcast. So much fun!!
Here are the middle name twins...Edward. I think they have a special bond because of that. Did I mention how much fun we had up in Oregon? Thanks Nana and Papa for everything!!

...you get to pet a 1000 lb pig and then it gets up and you say "okay boys, come out of the pen" fairly forcefully.
...you say things like "please don't shoot your brothers with that gun."
...you also say things like, "try not to get electrocuted by the fence boys. It would not be fun for you."
....and lastly, you take a nature walk only to find later that the bottom of your pant leg and shoes are covered in deer poo. That's when you know you're in Oregon off a private road.

No seriously, we had SOOOO much fun on our annual Oregon trip!! It seems we were constantly busy doing super cool things that homeschool dreams are made of. You better bet I am counting ALL of it for the 2010-11 school year and you also better bet that you're gonna be seeing MANY, MANY more Oregon pics before this summer is over.
