Bear Lake on the 24th of July!

Kenidee was so good to play with the little kids this year. Here she is building a "castle" with Kaycee.

The boys spent the whole 2 days driving trucks.

This year the water is so high that you have to wade through mucky grass and knee deep water before you even get to the strip of sandbar we called "the beach". Thank goodness for the Rhino that can drive through water. It carried our shades and cooler from the cars.

Scott with Addison. This is her first year at the beach.

A fun time was had by all!

Our time in Portland, Oregon

This Last Friday, we went to Portland for a conference that Scott needed to attend.
We took Jay and Barbara with us; and was SO grateful that they could come.
We happened upon an "Electric" car show. Pretty cool stuff for buzzing around town.

We drove up the Mt. Hood. They were grooming the slopes for the next days skiers. In fact they do more business in the summer months with skiing than they do in the winter.

The night lodge where it would be cool to spend a night.

We took a speed boat ride down the river to view all the ships that were loading and unloading on the Columbia river getting ready to head out to the ocean.
Notice all the grey clouds in every one of these pictures. We hardly ever saw blue skies.
Shorts and flip flops were the WRONG thing to bring on this trip!

Raspberry season is ON!

This week our raspberries are really taken off.
Here is Scott and Irene picking some for jam
on the 4th of July.

Cameron (Erik's son who is almost 3) loves the berries.
The easiest ones to get would be inside the dog run.

If ever you can't find Cameron; just check that dog run and he is out picking raspberries.
It's a good thing there is no dog that uses that run anymore.

Check out the berries on his mouth.
