Too Much Fun


It has been so long, but the break from the day-to-day and computers and telephones was much needed. The last week or so has been a BUSY one with a staycation, a holiday, family in town, and a bachelorette party. We've been on the move constantly, so it is with relief that I sit down to recap what we've been up to recently, and really, just sit down! I want to thank you for having such great blogs! Bloghopping is so relaxing and so very inspiring, too! It's my favorite way to take a breather and re-coup.

Here is the run-down on our fun:

My oldest sis, Tammy, and her four boys came to visit from Montana. It was so nice to see the family over the two weeks. They spent half their time at their old neighbors' houses and the last half of their trip here with us. Me and the kiddos met up with them the first day at Oaks Park. Even the little kids had a good time with train rides, kiddie rides, and even a small roller coaster for Brooklynn. Well I thought it was small enough when I agreed to take her on it, but during the ride she was petrified. Poor girl.

Please click on the above picture for a close-up & a good laugh. ;)

The day before the fourth of July, the hubby and I took the kids up to Great Wolf Lodge and hit the water park. What a great place! We haven't been as adventurous as we would like these last few years since we've had kids, so we thought it'd be a great family bonding adventure. The park was really neat and there was a large kiddie pool with slides and climbing areas. Brooklynn and Asher showed no fear of the water, which is surprising, since they hadn't been in a pool before! They had lots of fun and Nate and I took turns watching the kids so each of us could take a ride down a big water slide. After all was said and done, we agreed that Asher's still a little young for that sort of fun; his attention span is short and unless he can run free in an area, it's probably not a good one for him (or us)! Here are the few pictures of us at the park, and some of Asher trying to get away (which he did for the majority of the trip)...

A few from the fourth:

Its become a tradition that when Tammy comes in town we take the kids and have donuts in the park. A good combo, right?

And of course, we can't leave out Tammy's and my photo shoot...

Some good ones, hu?

The summer is turning out to be sunny and fun here in Camas. We've got Nate's birthday coming up this weekend, camping trips to look forward to, and more vacations to take. We'll have no issues with making the most of the next month and a half! Hope your summer is going delightful!

Happy Monday!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
