Oregon Vacation - Day 5 (Part 2)

Well, now that I no longer have the excuse that my computer is down, it's time to get back on track. I hope ya'll don't mind if I jump back to July and finish up my vacation posts. No where was I...

The second half of day five brought us to Pizza Hut where we met up with Grandpa Gerald (Yohn's dad) and had lunch. Remember this day was a cold one, so that's why even though it was July my kids were in long sleeves and hats.

A photo op with Grandpa.

Someone had given Grandpa Gerald a real Coonskin cap and everyone had to try it on.

Well, I'm sure you noticed, everyone but me tried it on!

After hanging around Grandpa's house for a while it was time to get going. We normally take the kids to the park on visits with Grandpa, but this year it was a no can do, as it decided to rain on us on top of being cold.

The kids were still pretty tired from their visit. Or maybe it was the fact that we let them stay up too late the night before!

I snapped this picture of the flag as we drove past. Actually I had Yohn stop so I could get a decent picture. I wish the sun was shining just a little bit brighter but all in all I'm pretty satisfied with it.

When we arrived home we found out that the calf had been born just an hour after we had left! Bethany was kinda sad she didn't get to watch, but I certainly was not. I'm not really into "reality shows" that much if you catch my point :)

My mom bought this bag of the biggest marmallows I had ever seen!

And we made stove top smores with them for dessert. Yum!

Love the marshmellow face! And the coonskin cap looks best on grandpa. Looks like it was made for him!

Yay! Glad your computer is back up and running. I know my last comment said I would call you, but clearly I lied. :( I'm sorry. Will you forgive me?

Love all the pictures. My neighbors bought us those marshmallows and the kids totally loved them. Me...not so much. Not a fan of marshmallows at all.
The coon skin hat is too funny.

Aren't those marshmellows messy? We figured that they were the equivalent of four regular marshmellows. Better bring wipes if you take them camping. The kids will need it!

Yohn looks exactly like his dad. Wow!

Except for the long hair, me and Grandpa Gerald could pass as brothers. :-)

So much fun to spend the dad with grandpas! And that pizza looked yummy. Those marshmellows are HUGE and those s'mores make me want one! bummer about not being the calf being born...
