Fla/St. Maarten Vacation

We just returned from our whirlwind two week family vacation to Florida then to St. Maarten. We had soooo much fun, but came back more exhausted than before we left. Traveling with two kids isn't easy, but both were better than expected on all flights. First we went to Fla to see Grandma, or MeMa as Braden would say. To our surprise my grandmother and great Aunt were there as well, so Sienna got to meet her great grandmother for the first time. Then we were off to St. Maarten to meet up with Aunt Angie, Uncle Dennis and cuz Elana. We were excited to have Braden and Elana play, but Braden was too rough and Elana was scared of him from day one. Oh well. Soon enough Elana will be beating him up. It was hectic, but so worth it. Enjoy our pics.

Family getaway to Sun River Resort

Here are some pics from our recent family getaway to Sun River Resort near Bend, OR. We love it there and are even thinking about possibly relocating. There is tons to do from hiking and biking to golfing and skiing. Mt. Bachelor is just 15 minutes away. This trip we rented a cabin and grandpa Ron and uncle Ro came along. We rented bikes and a buggy for Braden and took turns taking Braden on long rides. One morning I took Braden to the stables to see the horses and along the way we saw a coyote in one of the fields. Unfortunately you can't see him in any of the pics. We also took long walks around the property and really enjoyed the pool. On one of our long walks to the playground we came across a deer just hanging out.

Day trip to Hood River, OR

Here are some pics from a day trip to Hood River, OR. Hood River is huge windsurfing and kite surfing community and is known all over the world for it. We had a great day sitting and watching the surfers and of course Braden had to take a plunge.
