We're pretty known for just taking off on a spontaneous weekend trip here and there, but with my taking on several weddings this summer we're having to plan a little more accordingly as far as vacations go. This may or may not be our last year here in Oregon so we are taking full advantage of it. So far we have friends coming in town, my mom, an anniversary trip and we're even heading out of country!
Washington to go whale watching (girls trip with my friend from Florida!)
Driving all the way down the coast to the Redwoods
Camping in the Redwoods
Brookings & Samuel H. Boardman State Park
Banff National Park (and a whole lotta other fun stuff!) in Canada
and there's a whole album of screen shotted (is that a word?) places that will make for fun weekend/day trips. I'M SO EXCITED. Spring/summer in Oregon is the best! Can't wait to show Aubrey how it's done... Rae's already been saying, "I so exited to go to CA-NA-NA! We go find a bear! We go hiking and and and and find deeeeer"
Speaking of finding bears and deers.. handsome came home a few weeks back with a bow for Rae. She sees him practice shooting in the yard all the time and she was so tickled when she saw hers.
it's still hard for her to pull back on and hurts her hand a bit, hence the glove, but she aims it pretty straight and knows that it's not a toy to play with. We definitely want her to be well rounded and have knowledge with working on cars, hunting, shooting etc and handsome is great at teaching her all that. She knows what she likes and who am I to stray her from that? but I also want her to be my little shopping, sunglass wearing, juice drinkin date.
and because I don't ever want to forget her two front teeth like they are now...
