Wallowa Lake 2017 part 1

The moment we turn that corner and we see the lake my heart settles into this comfort feeling of life slowing down and lots of family time together. I cherish  are time at Wallowa lake. As they get older I feel like it gets harder and harder to have big chunks of quality time. The week at Wallowa is full of them. I love my family and each precious moment we have together. Here are a few pictures from around camp.

Bowman Cheer Camp

What a fun few days Miss C had at cheer camp. I think one of her favorite parts was knowing one of the Varsity Cheerleaders running the camp. Thank you Miss Whitney for helping make this a fun few days. Here are just a few quick photos I was able to take really quick this afternoon. I am desperately trying to get caught up on editing pictures so hopefully you will be seeing a few more post over the next few days.

Zoo Field Trip

 I had the fun adventure of joining little miss and her buddies on a class field trip to the zoo. The Zoo! Those who know me may be shocked that yes I went to the zoo. Those who don't know me as well the truth is the zoo gives me all kinds of anxiety. First off the idea of being that close to animals who could attack and kill me stresses me out. Seriously just a piece of glass separated me and a den of sleeping lions! Lions!!! Please tell me I am not the only one who is a little freaked out by this. Second I see their faces and the confined spaces they are in and how different it is from their natural habitat and it makes me sad. Really it breaks my heart. That is just to much emotion for what is supposed to be family fun :) However for this day I put that aside because I had 4 active boys to keep an eye on on top of my little miss and her friend. The boys kept me laughing and asked me to take a picture of about everything we saw. Here are a few of my favorites from the day. Wish I could post a few of our awesome group but I don't know all the parents so for now its just my sweet girl and the animals of the zoo.

Women March PDX

See these two sets of feet, they belong to two strong women. They belong to two women who long for people to know they are loved. They belong to sisters who have a hope that all of Gods children can live without fear. They belong to two friends who can't sit back and let hate and vulgar comments be passed off as just locker room talk or statements taken out of context. They belong to a mom and and aunt who want equal opportunities and health care. They belong to two introverts who normally would not join 100,000 people all crammed together one place for any reason, but today we did. Today we were part of history. Today we felt proud to tell friends, family and the children we love we did this for us and for them. Today we said we care about all people, and we made new friends. Today we saw something Beautiful. Today is a day we will never forget!
