The nightlights...

The kids formed there own band and wrote there own songs for a  one night performance. My favorite part was they decided to ask for a donation and all proceeds would go to Dornbechers children's hospital. All on their own they came up with this great plan, so proud of them! The show was so entertaining and well worth the money spent. They also had a lemon aid stand later that week to sell to campers as they drove by. In all they made over $20 and hope to have another fundraiser before school starts back home. Nightlights you ROCK!

Wallowa part 1

New adventures this year! We have been going to Wallowa every year except for one since we have been married. Brian has been going with his family since  he was a little boy. This year we tried a few new things. On my sweet mom in laws birthday Brian went with his parents Kayaking. They loved it! In fact he loved it so much we went as a family a few days later. We will be doing that again next year for sure! 

 Trying to find where daddy, grandma and grandpa went.
This year we also bought a raft to use in the lake. The kids loved going out with daddy and it worked much easier then a floaty.

 We spent everyday down at the lake wither it be swimming, rafting, kayaking, relaxing with friends, reading or  playing games it truly was the best way to spend the day.
