Summertime and the Livin' is Easy

 The Fourth of July rocked this year.  It started with the Butte to Butte 10k and breakfast with great friends and ended with fireworks and great friends.
 Other than that we have mostly been relaxing and enjoying the lazy days.  The girls especially like being able to sit around in their underwear.
I can't figure out which kid looks the cutest in this picture.

Brandon has been really busy volunteering with the Oregon Bach Festival.  He made a bunch of friends from Venezuela and we got to hang out with them on the coast.

A Mountain Biking Adventure

Taylor took Brandon to initiate his new mountain bike on the McKenzie River Trail.  Here they are at the beginning all full of excitement.
In the meantime Katrina and I kept the kids entertained by checking out Koosah and Sahalee Falls.

The pictures really don't do it justice.

Rocky had a blast with Myer and Benson hiking the entire way.

                      This is what happens if you ask Rocky to smile.
The guys took a little longer than they thought and Brandon had some pretty gnarly scrapes but they made it back alive.

When we got finished Rocky couldn't figure out why I insisted that they take a bath.
