Sunday outing


An island! The boys make their way across treacherous roaring rapids, Sam in the lead of course, to take dominion of their own little continent…

Waving at Mama, safe in her beach chair with her stack of books, cold diet pepsi and a camera…silly girls, they don’t know how to have FUN…

woohoo, but the McKenzie River IS cold!

John has a fishing hole he loves and we persuaded him to take us along Sunday afternoon-promising to be quiet, to stay away from “his” fish, to not throw too many rocks his direction, etc. Packed a picnic lunch, slathered on the sunscreen and took off-it was a beautiful day, hot, (for our area anyway, I know you Yakima folks would find that cool and refreshing!) at a little over 80 degrees. No fish were biting but it was a great afternoon, just enjoying God’s creation, and each other.

About sparrowjourney

Christian homeschooling mom to three boys, married to my best friend, John, for over 20 years. I love gardening without gloves, learning history with my kids, cooking with lots of butter, serving others, great books, rich coffee, studying the Bible, camping outdoors, scrapbooking, vintage home decor, the smell of rain and cut grass, authentic people, poetry, laughing until your sides hurt, and babies. oh and black licorice is pretty awesome.
