Sunday Hike in the Gorge

Today Mom wasn't feeling well so Dad took the girls to his favorite place, Columbia River Gorge for some hikes. We stopped by the famous view point for the famous view of the gorge. It was a beautiful day. Just look at the pics, how could you not love this place.
We hiked to Latourell Falls which has an upper and lower falls. I love this hike because it is easy and has some challenging spots also and the both water falls are amazing. The girls rocked this 2.4 mile hike in style. I had to tell them to pace themselves. I only had to carry them part of the way and the way back because it was a little steep.

We always have to spot and pose.
This is uppper Latourell Falls. You can walk around behind the fall and get a little wet. The girls thought the water was cold but later they were splashing and playing in it and didn't want to get out. I love our girls, they are adventurous.

We love to play in creeks, climbing on the rocks and logs, finding bugs, throwing rocks and just splashing.

This is lower Latourell Falls, awesome I know. That is moss on the side of the cliff.
Once again, stopping to pose. We found this cool tree to take some flashy pics.
And you have to stop at famous Multnomah Falls, not just for the scenary but for snow cones.

And to play more in the water. My girls can not get enough water.

Just more cute pictures. We had a really good time. We love to be outside and enjoy this beautiful state that we live in. Here's to being outside and here's to not watching a bunch of tv or playing on stupid smart phones.

Fun times with the horses

If you haven't guessed yet, our girls love horses. We always have to stop on the side of the roads to pet the horses, we always have to buy shirts with horses or coloring books, and we have to watch movies with horses. Well I guess it's better than Barbie. We love horses to and this weekend Mom took them with Nana and Papa to a friend's barn to ride some horses. And by the looks of the pictures they had a great time. They talked about it all weekend and they still talk about it. We will be doing this again. It always brings a smile to our faces seeing smiles on their faces.

Weeks/Durant Campout

Ah the Fruit Loop. This is our favorite place to camp up by Mt Hood and the famous Fruit Loop. We love this place because it is not too crowded, there is clean bathrooms, and plenty of sand for the kids to play in. And plenty of rocks for dad to play with. Dad loves his rocks. This time was fun, we played by the river throwing rocks, crossing logs and taking some fun pictures. The strong men carried back some big logs for the fire. Around the fire we had smores and told ghost stories. The kids just love the ghost stories. Next time we will have to tell some new ones. Then on Saturday we stopped by the Alpacas and the famous Packer Farms fruit stand for yummy icecream and shakes. Then we went to park to kill some energy before the car ride home. We had a lot of fun just doing simple things and not getting caught up in big activities. Love the fruit loop.
