The weather this year in Oregon was much cooler than usual, and even though we are all in shorts and t-shirts, or in Bethany's case a summer dress, it was still rather chilly. The kids played outside off and on all day but no without a complaint or two that is was kinda cold. Mind you this was not cool just because we live in California, as our own weather was not much different before we traveled north.
The kids loved climbing back and forth across this fence. Because the cow on the other side is generally friendly it was no big deal for the most part, but Yohn and I still warned them that they couldn't go over without an adult.
Since Becky, the cow, was preganant this warning was a good one because the next day she started pushing the kids away and growing rather irritated with the other calf that shared the field with her.
My dad wasn't feeling too well on this day either, and since we had not really made any plans to go anywhere, we let the kids play their games in the trailer for a while. I still don't understand how Elisha could be so comfortable like that.
I believe this is the night we played "Peter Pan", sword fighting each other with some sticks Bethany had found. I was victorious!
No we don't abuse our children on a regular basis, it only looks that way!
I think this picture of Elisha about to pounce on Yohn is funny because it almost looks like I cut him out and put him on this background.
Yes, I believe it was Elisha taking the pictures because while Yohn's photography skills are not the best, he'd have least gotten Bethany in the picture :)
My mom and I made bar cookies earlier in the day and this is what they looked like. Yummy! They were gone by mid-morning the next day because everyone had a hard time staying out of them. That's what vacations are for right, enjoying ourselves? Well that's exactly what we were doing while we devoured these cookies!
