Summer Fun o8

Painted Hills, Jon Day 

Aly with Ayden @ Painted Hills

This picture is only half real.  I imported the sky from another shot to make it more interesting.  Cheating...... I know, but everyone else does it!

Sunflower Power!

Diamond Peak...?

Everyone watching the shooting stars... except me, I am watchin the crazy dogs and the stand-alone camera.
Ayden and mom hanging out while the group was hiking to the lakeshore.

Scenic view # 999,999

Same view (# 999,999) zoomed out.

You guessed it... # 999,999 in b&w.

Hike through the wild flower fields with the friends - Aly & Ayden, Kyle L., Katie L., Andrew M., Jessse, Jenna, and Charlie

Meditation Station!

Out of focus Star Trails circling the North Star

When we went to watch the meteor shower, we stumbled upon this field on a hill that opened up right at the point in the sky where the shooting stars were coming from, and this was the stump that we hung out next to.

Metlious trip with the family Part 1

Hello everyone! Here are some pictures from our Metlious Trip with the whole family in the beginning of July. We had a lot of fun. It was nice to be on the Metlious with NO cell service for a whole week and just relaxing with family. I think Ayden really enjoyed seeing everyone and all the love they gave him. Making snow cones. YUMMM!! The new parents, soon to be bride and groom!!
Hanging out in the kitchen.

Ayden's first 4th of July

Here are some pictures from Ayden's first 4th of July. We went to Bend's annual Pet Parade, had lunch with some friends at home, visited with our friend Gunnar at his cabin in La Pine, and watched the big fireworks on Pilot Butte. It was a long but fun day. Ayden really liked watching the fireworks. His eyes were SO big.

Getting ready to go to the Pet Parade.

Auntie Katie, Ayden, and I watching the parade.

Next year we will be able to walk in the parade with Ayden and Jackson.

Having lunch in our backyard with our friends, The Swans.
