It’s been a strange couple of weeks. We usually go to Blue Lake at the end of July, then jump right into August and the whole ‘back to school’ thing with both feet. Not this year. Our trip was a bit earlier than normal, and this year Jim took 3 weeks off instead of just 1. We’ve been on the road a bit, and this week Jim’s been in Boise with Brent. Monday, things return to ‘normal’ around here (whatever that means!)
In the meantime, here are Blue Lake pics:
Hailey wasn’t at Blue Lake this year; Emily was only there for a couple of days; Brent was in and out (and hates having his picture taken!); and Victoria spent most of her time floating on the lake. I actually left my camera at the trailer much of the week, so this is all I’ve got.
Then last week we spent some time with Joel and Cathy, and did a day at Lincoln City. The beach was glorious, and I spent more time enjoying the sunshine than I did taking pics. But there are a few:
I love how Logan’s holding his shorts up out of the water in this pic! The boys never even got wet!!
Ryan with his ‘best friend’…and Logan with Ryan’s ‘best friend’…
And some close ups that are pretty indicative of temperament:
Note the tear on Logan’s cheek. It was because we wouldn’t let him out of the car in a busy parking lot. Terrible parents!! :)
Hailey was with us for this part of the trip, and she let the boys play with my camera. One of them took this, and I like it!
It’s fun to have her with us once in a while. She generally works Saturdays, so this was an extra special weekend.
