Family Circus

It has been a circus around here. We have had so much fun lately that I anticipate my kids claiming to be "bored" in a few days. My parents have been here for a visit. They live across the country and we get to see them once or twice a year. It will be hard to see them go when they leave in the morning. During their visit, we were busy with lots and lots of exciting activities.

Here's a sampling of pictures that show what we did during the last 10 days:

Fishing with the Cub Scouts

Trip to the Portland Zoo

Thomas's Birthday

Jonathan's Birthday
(Yep, he had to have the same cake as Thomas.)

Bike Riding without Training Wheels

Swimming at the Community Pool

Combined Friend Party for Jonathan and Thomas at the Community Pool
(Ice Cream Sundaes and Presents followed by Swimming)

Cub Scout Pinewood Derby Race

Trip to OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry)

In coming days, I'll posting lots more pictures of each event on my family blog (Owen Home).

What a blessing to be able to have your parents visiting! Looks like you had so much fun.

BTW, my kids loved Pokemon when they were little. They used to store the cards in notebooks in card holders (like you use for baseball cards) and they loved them!
