This year we went to Bend-Sunriver for the Service Family reunion. It started on Monday and ended on Saturday. Some people camped in tents, brought trailers, or rented a Yurt or trailer there at Thousand Trails. The first thing the kids did was go swimming and it's something they did every day MANY times a day.
The boys got a little chilly, dried off, took a breather and and then jumped back in the pool!
Crawdads that Blake, Breana and Max caught in the river. Savannah cooked them up and they TRIED to eat them. I think they had more fun playing with them though.
When I heard that the kids were catching frogs, I had them show me where it was. I couldn't believe how many frogs were down by the river! If you just looked at the ground you would see hunderds of little frogs jumping towards the river, then on occasion a big frog would squeak and hop in the river too. Here is Ashton holding the tiny little frog.
This frog looks fully grown, but still has it's tail! I saw a lot of frogs like this here.
On the way home, we had our windows rolled down and I saw this butterfly hit our car, but didn't see it fly in. Later I looked down for something and saw this butterfly laying here and still alive. I picked it up and threw it out the window.
I have this thing where I take pictures while Anson's driving. He used to ask if I wanted him to pull over so I could get a better picture, but I take pictures of everything! So the rest of the pictures are from the window in the van on our trip home. These trees were so beautiful. I loved the color of their trunks.
