Boy we had a lot of fun at the Deschutes County Fair. The fairgrounds is hugh and well kept. The kids enjoyed the rides, the elephant ears, the fresh squeezed lemonade, seeing all of the animals, competing in the firefighter obstacle course, and the hula hoop contest. Kali won the hula hoop contest 2 years ago, but this was the year for Sarah, she came in 3rd out of about 50 give or take, and won $5.00. Kole, Kali, and Blake did a good job as well.
Kris' mom and dad hosted the Davis family reunion, it consisted of Kris' grandpa's brothers, and sisters, and their families. We had a lot of fun meeting new family members. Kris' cousin Stefanie had 3 girls the same ages of our 3 girls, so they had a lot of fun. The kids had a lot of fun on the water slide that grandma bought, we swam at the KOA, and had lots of good food.
Our 1st stop was Tugman State Park. This was a fun place to camp, the kids rode their bikes a lot, and even made some new friends, Kylee, and Brianne. For dinner one night we had tin foil chicken, potatoes, and carrots. That dinner, hands down, was the best I have ever had! Kris and I weren't sure how well it would turn out, but in the end we had nothing to worry about. While at Tugman we went to the lake close by and swam, had a wiffle ball game, rode our bikes, and always ended the night with games. Fun, fun memories.
Before we left on vacation, my friend Misty and I got to go and visit the young women in our ward up at girls camp. I am the Mia Maid adviser (girls 14-15) and Misty is the Laurel adviser (girls 16 & 17). We weren't able to go the whole time, but we had such a fun visit. We went and jump into this lagoon, clothes and all. The water so so cold it took my breath away when I jumped in, but you could not, not jump in because the water was so inviting. The picture below doesn't do it justice. The water was such a beautiful greenish color. We had so much fun jumping off the rocks, and swinging from the tree. Misty just moved on Friday to Medford:(, I am going to miss her and her kids. But Medford is only 2 1/2 hrs. away, so I will go and visit her often.
Victoria, Misty, Rachel, Alyssa, Beth and Shaylyn outside the addies that they sleep in! No tents!
