A little of this, and a little of that!

Just a quick catch-up of our week in the INSANELY HOT Willamette Valley!

Who: Bennetts (us), Bennetts (Ryan's brother & fam), Kogers (family friends)
What: Devils Lake to beat the valley heat
Info: On Sunday, my sister-in-law had the awesome idea to take the kiddos to the lake house for a couple days to avoid the heat wave that was headed our way as well as relax and enjoy the coast. We packed up and headed out with the kids and the boys (Ryan and Tony) were able to join us later that night. The Kogers had been at the rental house next door for several days so we got to hang out with them too! We had a great time and the kiddos all had a BLAST in the sunshine. Tanning, tubing, wakeboarding, playing on the beach, making smores by moonlight, and good friends and family. What's not to love about that?

Faith and Logan at the beach!Mya loves the sprinkler!
Just about back at the dock!Uncle Tony and Addi!Uncle Tony is so sweet! Mason and Mya got a wagon ride all around the yard!
Who: Ryan, Tara & Logan (and LOTS of others too!)
What: Melia's 4th birthday party at the new Keizer splash park
Info: High School Musical was in the air...and that air was 107 degrees in case you were curious! It was hot, hot, hot! The kids loved the water and all the birthday treats. Yeah for Miss Melia!

Logan, Melia and Ella!

and their crocs too! How fun to have good buddies!


Who: Mason and mommy!
What: A day together for Mason's check-up at OHSU and then some errand running... Costco, Target, just the basics
Info: It was so sweet to spend the day with Mason. I rarely spend time with him alone so it was a real treat. He loved it...and of course flirted with everyone we met. He is quite the charmer and it is far more noticable when Mya isn't around to steal the limelight (cute, chunky babies with giant hairbows tend to attract a fair amount of attention). It was an extra special afternoon with my littlest man!

Not much beats frozen yogurt at Costco!


Who: Tara & Logan (and many other friends)
What: Ella's 4th birthday party
Info: The cutest mermaid cake that you ever did see! Way to go Shauna! PS: My lack of luck with technology this week continued as my camera had a 'rendezvous' with the pool. Apparently digital cameras don't love water...hmmmm...who'da thunk it???


Who: Ryan and Tara (and NO KIDDOS)
What: Sugarland Concert
Info: We went up to the Edgefield (McMenamin's) to see Sugarland LIVE outside on the lawn. It was so stinkin' fun! We ended up with really good seats...thanks to my friend makin' hubby. We were sitting the perfect distance from the stage (with some shade) with people who had arrived early that day while we didn't get there until an hour after the doors opened. Whoooo! We lucked out on that one. Great concert, great music and great company!
