We were blessed this past summer with our son and his family driving over from Idaho twice visits. The first visit took place over Memorial Day weekend which also included our grandson’s 8th birthday.
Our daughter-in-law has a number of relatives also living in the Willamette Valley so it’s rare that they stay with us so it was a double-pleasure when they decided to use our camper, which is parked on our property, as home base.
And had fun with the keyboard.
Feather, who loves being productively busy, begged to help in the graden.
Gus worked on his monkey bar maneuvers.
Papa adjusted their new bikes and they learned to shift gears.
Round and round they rode at the cul-de-sac a couple blocks away as they practiced shifting under Papa’s tutelage.
We celebrated Gus’s birthday at the city park with friends and family.
And saw more monkey bar action.
Family pictures were taken. Silly ones.
And not so silly.
The only sad part of this gathering was Aurora’s husband, Haymaker, couldn’t be there. He was working long hours mowing the first hay cutting of the season. It was a good year for the hay business.
Thankful for so many good times this year with family!
