Day 7 - I'm thankful for the seasons

These Fallish storms are so amazing! And remember summer? I mean a REAL summer - WAY back in 2009, yeah that was nice.

(for those of you who didn't get to enjoy the summer of 2010 in the Pacific Northwest, we did have summer, but not quite as much as we are used to. Many gardeners didn't see the production in their produce.)

But I thought I'd share a few highlights of our summerish activities:

Nathan and Micah getting covered in sunscreen for one of the few warm days.

Noah and Maggy playing at Nehalem Bay State Park.

Zak on a log, a day at the beach - Rockaway Beach - unusually warm and sunny for the Oregon Coast, even in the summer.

The babies didn't have a problem keeping on their normal schedule, even with a beautiful beach day.
kids will be kids....
On a camping trip to Fisherman's Bend and hiking out to Opal Creek - "Three Pools" The water was COOOOLD, but Micah didn't mind.
Noah and Dad took on the 7 mile hike WAY up Opal Creek. For a little man, Noah was quite the trooper.
The new play structure at Grandma and Grandpa's house!

Maggy and Uncle Mark finishing up a great day of play at Grandma and Grandpa's house with a few quiet moments at the pond.

A family hike around Battle Ground Lake.
Micah playing down by the river at Grandma and Grandpas.

ALMOST the whole family...Liz spent the summer in San Fran for a law internship, so we got to see her in May and in August. It was wonderful!

Grandpa Dedrick came for a visit in August and the kids really wanted him to ride with them on the OHSU tram. The views were amazing and it was a beautiful day.
Many, many days this summer were spent in the wagon, in front of the house, visiting with neighbors and watching the big kids play on bikes and scooters.
