Wildwood Park

Our family has made several trips to Wildwood Park in Welches. I would say it is one of Blayne's favorite local parks. There is lots to do there. So we spent another day at the park. Packed our lunch and had a picnic. We played some baseball, some soccer, and just had fun!
As much fun as all this is, it is very tiring too! Somedays we play all day then we come home my kids are just plain exhausted and sometimes hard to please!

Duck, Duck, Goose!!

On a beautiful day this month we arranged to meet Aunt Aleesa and the kids out at Clackamette Park in Oregon City to feed the ducks. Growing up in Oregon City, this was something I have done several times in my life. I have good memories of fun times. I love being able to take my kids to do fun things, it's even more fun to take them to do things that I have done and the places I have done them. We stoppped and got lunch and ate it at the park. The coty has done a lot to develop this park over the years, much nicer now. After lunch the kids played and kicked the soccer ball around a bit. Before we left, we walked down to the river and fed the ducks, there were more geese there than ducks but out of habit I still refer to it as the "duck pond". I know they are mostly geese and I also know its a river. We brought bread from home and the kids took turns, Aunt Aleesa brought popcorn, they loved that too!
I am trying to keep the kids busy this summer, we are trying to do something fun every week. Inexpensive but fun, that's our goal!

Last Day of School - Field Day!!!

One of the luxuries of having my baby girl be older now is that we can volunteer more at the school and she can entertain herself or participate in what we do while we are there. Last year, I left to NY on the last day of school and missed out on all of the festivities. So this year Maddy and I jumped in with both feet and agreed to hang around and volunteer all day. Grandma Mary was around to help also, we had her go take some pictures while we were working in the kitchen.
Water Balloon tosses, obsticle courses, Tug of War, and lost of freinds and junk food! Happy Summer Vacation!!!
