Summer Fun

       We are just a little over half way finished with summer 2012.  We have had a chance to play with Spike, go camping, spend time with family, garden, catch up with old friends, play some tennis and enjoy our bowling league (I have even gotten a chance to get my own ball driled to my hand, cool).  Here is a quick glimpse at a few of our adventures thus far.

Here is a video of Spike playing with a basketball.  He pushed it around 2 other times before I had the camera ready. 
Last weekend, Matt had the chance to be in a high school friends wedding.  It was at Bella Collina in Amity and was beautiful.  It was neat to meet some new people from his high school. 
Catching up with Old Friends
The Boys...aren't they looking sharp?!
This past week, Matt and I got a chance to get away and enjoy a few days at Silver Creek Falls.  Matt's Dad came up to.  We had lots of time to hang out in camp and also got a good 5 mile hike in around the falls.
I've always been a bit of a rule breaker
Matt's Dad was the reigning champ of ladder ball for this weekend.  We will be seaking revenge during the all family campout in August.

     As you may know, last Friday (the 13th), my dad had his right ankle fused.  The doctor said it was one of the worst ankles he had seen and he has multiple titanium rods, plates and screws in him.  He has had his good days and bad days so far with the recovery.  We will know more on how the surgery took on Monday afternoon when he goes in for his post surgery appointment.  Please continue to send him healing thoughts and prayers. 
      We have a little over a month left of summer, although all teachers know what it feels like to see August on the calendar.  We plan to end the summer with a bang.  We will be going to Bend for our anniversary and another camping trip.  I hope everyone else has had a great time making the most of the Oregon Summer.
