Oregon Trail: Day at Camp

Church camp was always my most favorite place on earth. Ryan's church camp was just as special to him, but his might trump mine because it's in the mountains. Sorry Henderson...I think they have pine trees there as tall as Chester Co. is wide for example...
Also Ryan's grandparents used to work at camp so he probably spent more time at his than I did mine. Either way, Camp Yamhill is awesome and I'm so glad we got to take the kids there one day to play!
They had fun going on walks in the creek and swimming until it was swim time for the camp and then we moved up stream.
Typical Liv!
Ryan caught crawdads with his bare hands like some wild mountain man.
Haven was happy to hang out on a blanket or in someone's arms until she crashed next to the shore.

Carrie even got her to laugh without burping at her!
We took some pics on "Grandpa's bridge." I think he built lots of bridges there but this one was the last one he worked on so they dubbed it that.
While the older kids went on a hike the adults waited in ambush....
We had a great day and then came back and had a family dinner and took some pics while we were all together!
We are a good looking family!
Great grandma with her greats from Mona's family
Cousins on a swing
I think that is all of our Oregon pics! Now I just need to get caught up on Haven's newsletter...and Liv's first day of school which is today which is why I finally have time to blog!

Oregon Trail: The Coast

Liv had only been begging for Grandpa to take us somewhere in the RV since the moment we arrived at their house. She even asked if we could drive it to the groery store one day...which is literally across the street from their house. On Saturday her wildest dreams came true and we loaded up in the RV for a trip to the coast
Our first stop was to eat lunch at Surfrider. The girls enjoyed looking out at the horizon with the binoculars. It was a typical dreary day at the coast but there were still lots of boats out to watch.
 After lunch we headed down to Foggerty Creek where you get the best of both worlds. Sand, ocean, creek, and rocks to climb on. Even though we were all bundled up in coats, the girls had no fear in jumping in to the coooold waters.
All of us old folks just took pics of the girls having fun
I did get my feet in. It wasn't freezing but I definitely did not want to get any further in!
Haven was not a huge fan of the chilly coast, but she will learn!
Fred didn't seem to mind though!
We spent some time exploring the area. Rick had his metal detector out in full force but I don't think he found any treasure that day. The girls found some anemones to touch. Liv was fascinated with them.
Hills behind us....turn 180 degrees....ocean behind us!

How Haven spent most of the day.....
Nursing on the beach.
The cold was finally hitting the kids in their soaked clothes and it started to rain harder, so we packed up and headed back to the RV for dry clothes, snacks, and some souvenir shopping. 
Liv might have enjoyed the RV more than the beach! She is very excited to ride all the way to Branson in it in a few weeks!
