Ahhh, the joys of summer camp...

Thisweek,the kids went to day camp at Camp Wilani.  Its a wonderful old fashioned outdoor camp - where kids takea  bus each day and learn to canoe, shoot archery, make crafts, sing goofy songs, and get good and tired and filthy.

Emma hated the first day, but as soon as she discovered the zip line on day 2, all bets were off and she was crazy about camp.  Vi had lots of friends at camp, and Jakey had some.  Overall it was a great start to summer!

A little summer water fight

Best friends teaming up to cool off and get the boys...
J looks very gotten - look at how soaked that boy is! Twin sister not far behind and still armed.

She may be small, but she is mighty. E held her own with the big kids. She was definately the smallest one there, but she wasn't the wettest!

And home again

We made it back after a long drizzly day.

First we went geocaching. Although Emma is vertically challenged it pays off for her. She found a geocache here with no effort and long before Glenn and I even knew where to look!

Then we went walking up on top of the tunnel that the Sunset Highway goes through. We certainly got our workout today. Dropped off a big and then took the stairs back down.

You can't see completely how high it went but trust me it was a climb!
Saw Prince of Persia and then tried to get one mote
Geocache at the Portland Library but ran out of time. Guess well hit it next time.

Welcome to Portland

For Fathers day we are off to Portland by train. We checked into the gorgeous hotel and we are about to head out into the city.

We went to OMSI and then had dinner at Todais which is Glenns favorite restaurant.
To finish off the evening we are watching Clash of the Titans in our pjs. The next door neighbors are very loud. Hopefully they won't keep this up all night.
As a bonus this is Pride Northwest Weekend. We've seen some pretty interesting people. Seems like everytime we come up here there is a parade for either a protest of a celebration. We are going to try to avoid the crowds by getting an early start in the morning. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone

Where or where is summer?

It is June 10 - has anyone seen summer yet? We are at a balmy 58 degrees at 1pm in the afternoon, with a decent amount of cloud cover.
So lets get caught up. We got back from Europe last month, and we've been trying to recover and get back to normal. Vi is off today on a party extravaganza - her bff's birthday is today and they are painting the town together. Luckily nothing depends on weather, so they appear to be having a blast!

So far they have been to build a bear, a pottery painting place and lunch so far. It sounds like so much fun.
Yesterday our youngest, Emma, went to her first day of kindergarten. They have a half hour where they get to walk in and visit kindergarten, meet the teacher, and prepare for fall.
