We don't play cars, we play airplanes!

So, today we had to go to the airport. I had to work and that means the kids come too. Travis had just come back from a flight and the plane needed to be fueled. So the kids thought it would be fun to play. Sydney was the pilot and Paden and Eldon were the repair crew.
They had to repair the wings mid flight lots of times and had to parachute out of the airplane. All would jump out to repair the wings or to parachute out. I wonder where they get their imagination. Silly kids, but boy did they have fun!

Busy Summer

WOW! It's been more than a month since I blogged. I guess I have been busy.

Paden lose 2 teeth at the same time with the permanent teeth already in behind them.

Travis' brother recieved a kidney/pancrass transplant. So we were in and out of Portland quite a bit. I went to girls camp, lost lots of sleep but had fun and got to know some great young women in the stake.

We spent a weekend at the beach in Lincoln City. Tons of FUN!

The kids enjoyed their cousins and the beach, even though the water was cold. The weather was foggy but nice but the water was cold. The house we rented was very close to the beach. We played during high tide.
We had great meals planned but planned way too much. It was fun to play in the cold ocean and then go home and hop in the hot tub. The kids loved making sand castles, even the younger kids!
