Oregon Vacation - Day 4

On Thursday morning we planned on going to see a friend and her family but she had a case of the stomach flu. Since those plans had to change we decided to head to town (since my parents live out in the country) and each lunch and have ice cream at DQ.


Then it was off to the park for some fun.

I love how this picture of my girl turned out! I had to lay on my back under the play structure to take it and ended up with a bunch of wood chips all over me, but it was worth it :)

King Daddy pretending to be dead and everyone is mourning his passing.

The weather was not really warm enough to play in the water, but when you are six and eight throwing rocks and splashing about is fun even when you get too cold.

Bethany's rule is the bigger the splash the bigger the fun!

Water fight!

Bethany thought this rock looked like a loaf of bread. She took this rock back to my parent's house and gave it to her Grandpa Henry. He was so thrilled.

Yohn and I both got in the fun by skipping rocks and seeing if we could throw a rock across to the opposite bank. No pictures of me though because I didn't want to hand the camera over.


Bethany did not particularly want me to take pictures of the two kids together so getting a good shot was kind of a headache. And I didn't realize it at the time but the camera was primarily focusing on Elisha who was closer to me so Bethany is kinda blurred.


All in all it was a fun and enjoyable day. We took the kids to the library afterwards so we could double check some things on the internet and they didn't want to leave afterwards. It made me laugh that something as simple as the library would be so much fun.
