This is what we did in August.....first we went to Nonnie and Grandpa's for 10 days. This is the first time our dad has come with us and we LOVED it!!
We went to the County Fair with Nonnie, Aunt Angie, Alexa and Sophie. We loved looking at all the booths, going on fun rides eating lots of yummy fair food and the animals were a highlight for all the kids!
We also got to see Great-Grandma Eileen. We went to the park by her house and had lunch!
After seeing Grandma we drove on to the beach. We stayed in Florence at the same hotel we always stay at...Driftwood Shores. We were SUPER lucky to have such great weather and we loved that we got to go with Aunt Angie, Alexa and Sophie.
Nathan, Benj, Levi and I walked up to see the lighthouse. We got to have a tour...I think that is the first lighthouse I've ever been in...and I loved it!
Yep....I made my family wear matching clothes so I could get a picture on the beach.
After leaving the beach we drove onto Salem to visit with friends of dad (we met them at this really cool carousel) and then we saw my Great-Auntie Nina and cousin Jean.
We helped Nonnie with her backyard. The kids and I helped with weeding and then Nathan helped Nonnie with a bunch of planting. He wanted to get it all done so the last night we were there he worked in the dark. I wish we would have taken a finished picture of Nonnie's backyard. I think it looked beautiful!!!
We went to several baseball games.
Nonnie and Grandpa took us out to dinner at the Pilot Butte Drive-In. They serve an 18 ounce hamburger so we ALL shared a hamburger and fries.
This is the kiddos waiting....they had no idea what Nonnie had ordered.
This was Sarah's reaction when she saw the burger.....I loved it!
Can you believe how big it is???
This was Sarah's first reaction....then I had her give me a smile!
We spent a lazy day floating the river. The kids loved it!
Grandpa took us to see Toy Story 3 and I think that it just might be my favorite movie of the year!!
Thank you Nonnie and Grandpa for a FANTASTIC summer vacation!!!
Right after we got back it was SPENCER'S birthday! He turned SIX!!! He opened presents in the morning. Then in the evening we went to the park for a picnic and to play in the water. Afterwards, we went to Cold Stone for some yummy ice cream. He had a friends party that was all about Zhu Zhu pets.
Our Primary had a talent show. Spencer showed off his art projects. Sarah and Andrew played a song.
Our cute kids started school on the 25th. We all walked to school.
After school we all ate cookies and talked about everyone's fun day!
