Seaside, Oregon - Thousand Trails

In the middle of July we went to Seaside Oregon for a couple of days. Anson Jr. was climbing Mt. Adams with the youth so it was just us and the the two youngest boys. Lucy has a hard time with long RV rides and I find her in some weird places when I'm not the one holding her by my window.

The kids spent a lot of time at the pool, but I don't have any pictures. We also played foosball, pool, ate ice cream at the social, and watched a few movies at night. It was a nice quick trip.

Anson Jr. when he got back from the climb. He didn't apply sunscreen nearly enough! He made it to the top and had a good time!

And this is him a couple of days later! Ewwwwww!

Rock Doggies ROCK the 4th!

A couple of years ago Anson had these costumes made to start doing some shows for kids. He had big hopes for the "Rock Doggies" but I kind of poo pooed the idea telling him he was WAY too busy to take this group on with everything he had going on. He did get really busy with school and put it on the back burner. The Rock Doggies came to life on July 4th 2010 and played on the family stage at Fort Vancouver. It was on a Sunday and the people who were supposed to be in the costumes couldn't make it, so he got family to help. Anson Sr is the dog in the orange shirt, Anson Jr is in the green shirt, Ammon is in the red shirt and our niece Megan is in the pink shirt. They had a pre- recorded CD that they made prior to the show and all they had to do was look like they were talking and playing their instruments.

The kids LOVED them before they even went on stage! And people were taking pictures like crazy!!

To hear what the Rock Doggies sound like go to :

Afterward we went to my parents
house for a BBQ and fireworks!

Uh oh!

I was getting ready to catch up on some
blogging and for some reason my
computer isn't reading my SD card!
I guess I will have to postpone
blogging for now.
