Visit with my Ninnie

My best friend and I hardly ever get to see each other.
She lives in Eugene, OR and me in CA, but we have been best friends since 6th grade.
She moved to Michigan in 9th grade, but we still remained close with letters and visits.
When we see each other it is as if we never left each other, even when it has been 2 years.
They say you can not pick your family, but It hink you can and I pick her (and her family - she's got an awesome family)!

Jennie runs a day care business out of her house and the boys LOVE visiting because there are tons of new toys to play with.
And Jennie has angry birds, so Jack will love her forever!

Can't wait to see you again, Ninnie!

WW: Oregon road trip

One of a few stops we made on our way to visit my BFF, Jennie, in Eugene!
A cool salmon ladder.
Under the ground we could see a guy counting all the fish go by.
It is amazing how fast and strong the salmon are to make it up the ladder!

One of the many dams we saw.

More fish, trout this time.

and a GIANT 420 pound sturgeon!
"Bigger than a human" Jack says!

Last spokane post

And then we left.
It was very sad to say goodbye.

After bike riding, mole wacking,

jungle gym swing and book reading...
It was a very good visit!

Sliding around

This is still the park by my in laws in Spokane.

It has the great bike jumps and 3 play structures!

For hours of little boy (and superhero) fun!

Water park fun in Spokane

This place is right near my in laws and it is a great place to cool down.

Took forever to get the boys in it but Jack is partial to the water guns.

Luke wearing swim goggles found a good place to stand to avoid getting wet!

Squirt guns and angry birds!

While the weather was nice, the boys had lots of water blaster fights!

They were awesome and the boys could easily handle them.
(Poor Uncle Wes and Grandpa - Grandpa went thru 4 shirts one day!)

and then there is angry birds...Jack will drop EVERYTHING for angry birds!
Here he is with Aunt Mary, after getting Uncle Wes and Grandpa Ron very wet!

slippy slide with a hill

Another fun thing at Grandma Honey's house.
Double slippy slide with a hill!

Jack did it for awhile till he tried to surf down and fell off and got "hurt"

But Luke slided on!
We had great weather except for the last 2 day of rain!
Us California folks are not so used to rain in the summer - tho this year has been the exception!
