Goodbye Oregon

It takes a long time to get to Oregon from our house. We make the trip because Grandma and Grandpa are there. But soon Grandma and Grandpa will be here, so we made one last trip to Oregon this week. We spent several days at the coast and went into CA also. We will miss our favorite Oregon shops and restaurants, but it will be nice to have Grandma and Grandpa close to home.

The boys had so much fun playing at the beach

They found lots of sea treasures - these stayed at the beach

These came home

More Redwoods

We fed dead fish like this bright blue one to the seals and seagulls

We took a 6 hour boat ride up the Rogue River and we all got very wet. Boy #2 fell asleep on the ride back

We ate one last time at Jaspers, my favorite hamburger place - Mushroom burger with sweet potato fries

Unfortunately, boy #1 was sick on the trip out and back - This is how he slept

Soothing Buzz

Yes, that is boy #2 totally asleep in the haircut chair. Who knew the sound of clippers was a lullaby? Luckily he didn't fall asleep until she was almost finished with the haircut. It could have been pretty bad if he nodded off mid cut.

Long Weekend

Since the 4th of July fell on a Sunday this year our town had events on Saturday and Monday. This made for a long celebration weekend and we were all exhausted by Monday afternoon. Here are a few photos from the holiday weekend.

We woke up early on Saturday and went to see the hot air balloons

Friends and hot air balloons

We were color coordinated without even planning it

"Little Big Show" fireworks on the 4th

We went on a hike on Monday after the parade

We are lucky to have a great dog that we love. Unfortunately, he had five teeth extracted the other day. He went in for some routine shots and the vet noticed that some of his teeth were dirty and some of the gums were infected. So the next day he went in for dental work. He was gone all day and had to be put under anesthesia. He came home looking tired and a little sad, but by the next day he seemed himself again. I now have a dog toothbrush and I will be diligent in cleaning his teeth so he doesn't have to have dental work again.
