Day Two...

Decided to break the posts up, here are the highlights from day two...

Four Cousins

Yep, cold happens when you play in that water!

Noah looking all grown up and Bre exploring.

What are you building, Brandon?

GORGEOUS! Day 2 sunset did not disappoint!


The Montee family is in town for a visit and since they were here, Bruce and Heidi decided to visit too and spoil everyone rotten! On Tuesday, the gang headed down to Waves and Wings Waterpark and spent the afternoon splashing and sliding. After wearing the kids down, oh who am I kidding, after the parents were exhausted, everyone piled in the cars and headed to the coast for a couple of nights. A couple of beautiful days in Lincoln City later and everyone had a great time. Due to work, I stayed home for this trip but I LOVE the stories and pictures that they came back with. Thank you Pop & H!! Day one...

Brandon smiling big at the waterpark.

Where's your smile Oliver?

Pretty ladies!

This was sunset on their first night there - beautiful!

Apparently, the kiddos plopped down on this log and made friends with a another, gracious family that were also visiting the coast. They shared their bonfire, smores and stories with everyone. How cool is that?

What Happened?

I find myself not blogging much anymore for a few reasons: 1) I work more than I used to. 2) I like to use the desktop computer when blogging. 3) I have a pre-teen that will spend every waking hour on the desktop playing games and watching videos with his friends if allowed. Joel, the boys, Su, Brian, Bre, Brandon, Bruce and Heidi all headed to the beach for a couple of days. I had to stay home for work related reasons and realized that the computer wasn't constantly being occupied. So I decided to jump on and do a quick little update. I hope to sneak on here more often throughout the summer but there are no promises. ;)

We now have ourselves a blue belt and white w/green belt! I try to get a picture of the boys at each demonstration with their instructors. Figure when they make black belt it will make a really fun series of photos.

The boys have a lot of respect for Mr. B (top picture) and Mr. K!

We now have ourselves a 1st Grader...not sure why he decided to be all serious for that moment.

And we now have ourselves a Middle School-er (yikes!).

Also had ourselves the 2nd Annual, End of School, Nerf Battle and Picnic!
