Friends and Family

During finals week Daniel needed a break so we took Isaiah and a couple of his buddies to this fun rock slide near Triangle Lake. We had so much fun!

This is the bottom of the slide.

Daniel giving the kids instructions.

The boys were all a little nervous to go down the slide so Daniel took all of them down on his lap first. As you can see you they don't go very fast down the slide, but the water is really going fast. After that they didn't want to stop.

It took me a long time to finally decide I was going to try it. I was the same as the boys. I didn't want to stop. We had a really great time and we can't wait to go again!

After graduation we took a mini vacation to the Nehalem house with Grandma and Grandpa Dewey. Grandma Dewey is always getting new toys for the grand kids to play with. She always has the coolest things and the kids can't wait to get into the "grandma box."

The new toys this year was Tag Ball. Isaiah and Daniel had a lot of fun with this one. The balls actually shoot really hard and fast so this gear is actually very necessary. Isaiah was too scared to run around and get shot at so they just stood across the room from each other and took turns shooting one another.

Our nephew Sam was also there at the beach with us. He and Isaiah had a lot of fun playing together. Isaiah is used to be the younger cousin on the Vrtiska side of the family so he really took advantage of "being in charge" with Sam. I think we spent the whole vacation correcting that. In the end I think Sam still likes Isaiah:)

Daniel and Ross took the boys boogie boarding. Isaiah was super nervous so Sam went first.

Isaiah cried the whole way out but he did it and he had fun. Now we will have to see if he will do it again.

Wow! That rock slide looks AMAZING! Such great photos--it looks so pretty there. . . You guys look like you had a really good time.

It's those little 'get-aways' like that that are just the perfect thing to give the family a needed break from the routine. . .
