Summer Highlights ~ Part 4

During our Oregon vacation we visited some of Yohn's family.
 Played at the park,

 and spent some time with Yohn's dad.

 On a hot day we headed to the river and I caught this little water snake. Bethany proclaimed she "had" to hold it and nearly got bit in the process. Then I think she squeezed the poor thing's neck waaaayyyy too hard and I questioned my own crazy parenting at that moment. But she came through unscathed and the snake swam away seemingly fine, so all was well. Although next time I think I'll just watch it swim around instead.

This is not the same river as in the previous post. Most of this little river is only knee deep where we were at, but still deep enough for us to tube down a small part of it over and over again. The kids had a blast, the water was warm and not too cold, and we had a lot of fun together.

I just realized there is another picture that was supposed to go here, but oh well I guess. Maybe next time.

Crazy hair fun! He requested I post this on the blog. :0)

Oh my word, you actually caught a water snake--and Bethany held it!!!

Tubing down the river is great fun, isn't it? I miss those days.
