Camping with Grandma and Grandpa – Part Two

Story told by: Lainey

….continued from Part One.

One day we drove 40 minutes to Sunriver, Oregon for some fun shopping and kids’ activities. Unfortunately all of the kids’ activities were closed (but the website didn’t reflect this information ahead of time). So we made do with the other activities, and ended up still having lots of fun!

We found some rocks to climb on.

I also tried out my balancing skills.

Daddy got in on the fun as well (and I had to quickly get out of the way of that crazy guy).

We got some yummy ice cream at Goody’s.

After ice cream, we went to the nature center. We started by walking through their gardens. Henry said he saw 13 tigers while we were there. Crazy kid.

Then we went to check on the swan out on the island. She is sitting on her eggs, waiting for them to hatch.

Checking out the owls.

We found a playground. Most of it was closed for construction, but there were a few structures open.

While playing across the playground, Mommy looked over and saw Henry at the top of this climbing toy. Daddy ran over to assist just in case he needed help, but of course he didn’t…he’s a monkey!

Next we went to Sunriver Brewing Company, and Daddy was in heaven! He loved the beer sampler!

Grandma joined in on the beer sampler fun.

And Grandpa!

While we waited for the food to arrived, we got to play in the COOLEST kids’ area in the restaurant. Mommy and Daddy would come here all of the time if this were closer to home!

And then the delicious food arrived!

One morning Mommy and Daddy got quite a chuckle over my braid that was sticking straight out from my head. Come on guys, I just woke up…give me a moment.

Thankfully Grandpa helped us to celebrate National Doughnut Day!

Mommy says that Grandpa can always be counted on for doughnuts!

Another early morning with Daddy sleeping on the couch, and us watching cartoons.

More pool time!

On another morning, we went out to Black Bear Diner. Grandma and Grandpa are big softies, so they bought each of us a bear.

Brody loved his bear!

Henry needed some time to warm up to his bear.

When we were in Sunriver, we visited a toy shop, and Grandma and Grandpa bought some fun activities for us. Henry got a water coloring book.

I got a princess stencil.

I loved designing different princesses!

On our last full day in Oregon, Mommy and Daddy went to a wedding for Kristian and Heather. Kristian was a good friend from the WSU marching band. Mommy and Daddy had so much fun catching up with lots of friends from college.

Unfortunately the temperature was in the mid-90s (20 degrees above the average temperature), so things got a little toasty.

Christine is pregnant with baby number two, so Mommy requested a special pregnant drink for her. This is what the bartender came up with!

Picture perfect.

Kristian (the groom) is the one in the suit in the back row. Mommy and Daddy were so happy to get to be there to celebrate his marriage!

While Mommy and Daddy were at the wedding, Grandma and Grandpa took us to the park (which is where Henry is in the picture above), to McDonald’s for dinner, and back to the motor home for a movie. Thanks for a great last night Grandma and Grandpa! We love you!!

I’ll leave you with this video of Henry at lunch on our drive home. Such a goof!
