Down by the river!

I woke up today and it was a freezing 40 degrees at my house. By 8 a.m. guess what popped up in the sky? If you live in the Pacific Northwest - particularly on the Oregon Coast - you might not have a clue. lol The SUN! The SUN came out today! I hurried and did a couple chores - one I disliked A LOT - contacted a couple friends and headed up to Footbridge on the Wilson River! It was a beautiful spot. As much as I like the ocean - I really liked it here. There was something for everyone.

The boys and I got there at 11:30 and waited for a bit for our friends to show up. While we waited we got some fun pictures in.


Blue sky! Do you see it? That truly is a novelty in our neck of the woods. Especially this summer. It's been cool, gloomy, cloudy weather.

Michael and Nephi.

Nephi sees if he can make it too.

Yay! They both made it!

All these kids are BOYS!
AND....they had THE best time together doing what boys do best.

Inventing, climbing....


scooping and filling some more....

We had so much fun! We are hoping that next Friday will be as nice so we can go back for one last summer fling!

I think this was in 2004. It was Nephi's first trip to the beach. The boys were all so little! My have they grown.

Meet the Parents...Russell and Candace
It all started for us when Russell left for Cape Town South Africa on a mission. Candace felt inspired to write him - so she did! We wrote for 3 1/2 years. Candace came home from her mission to the Texas Houston East Mission and we dated for 5 months. We married in July 1994 and have been happy ever after!
