Boating at Willow Lake

There's no better way to escape the wildfire smoke and triple digit temperatures than getting out on the boat.  It was Isla's first time and Chase's first time that he would remember - and everyone did SO well!

Cole was super brave and adventurous, he wanted to ride everything!

Chase even went for a tubing ride! 

A perfect summer day!

Blueberry Picking!

As you know, I'm obsessed with U-pick farms.  We've done raspberries, peaches, blackberries, apples - but we've never made it to a blueberry farm... until now!

Blueberries might be one of my favorites for u-pick!  They were easy to pick (low to the ground for the kiddos), fast to pick and not ridiculously expensive (peaches are the trickiest - expensive and it's easy to pick a ton!).  We read "Blueberries for Sal" before we went and the boys loved looking for bears to share our blueberry haul.

 There's a reason his basket is so empty... his belly was FULL!!!!

 And Chase kept my basket well-supplied with flowers too!

I wore Isla in the ergo on my back... if I ever wanted to know if she was asleep or not, I'd just hold up a blueberry...
 and her little hand would sneak up and grab it...
 and in it would go!
A lovely day with almost five pounds of blueberries as a reward!

Grants Pass Balloon and Kite Festival

There was a lot going on this weekend!  Grants Pass had their first balloon and kite festival!  Unfortunately the wind was a little too strong for the hot air balloons, so we didn't see any of them - but Cole was thrilled to see the world's biggest kite - an enormous American flag kite!

Chase felt brave enough (as long as Cole was with him!) to climb the hay bale tower.

 This awesome boy helping him down:

 So many kites!

 This kite was Chase's favorite - look at that grin!!

 And the boys' favorite part was digging in the dirt!
Such a fun weekend full of new experiences!

Airport Day

The annual Airport Day at Ashland Airport was this past weekend!  I've wanted to go for the past few years but kept missing it for some reason or another - this year I put it on our calendar over a month in advance so we'd be sure to make it!

As soon as we stepped out of the car, the kids were all awestruck by the helicopters that were taking off right next to the parking lot.

 There were planes to check out:

 They even had fire trucks, ambulances, and a jump house!
But the highlight was undoubtedly Cole's and my first helicopter ride!
I'm not sure who was more excited, Cole or me!
We both had ear to ear grins the whole time!  What an experience with my boy!
