Weekend Visitors

My dad and his wife Susan came into town to visit last weekend and we were BUSY! Leave it to my dad to find more exciting and interesting things to do in my town than I know about! We hit the movies, the Cinco de Mayo festival downtown, the zoo, the farmer's market, and Multnomah falls all in two days. It was very fun and the girls had tons of fun! Here is the Cinco de Mayo festival..... Lilly rode her first carnival ride and loved it! I had to sit in the back with her in seats that were NOT made for adult legs, I didn't love it.
The girls could pick two things to do. Josey wanted to do rides and Maddy ONLY wanted to play games. And she pouted about that the whole time until she got to play her game. Can we say pre-pre-pubecent?
We then headed over to the zoo where I think we have over saturated the girls with zoo animals. The adults and Lilly were the only ones that even noticed the animals. Maddy and Josey really couldn't have cared less about the animals! They were having their own fun though and the weather was GREAT!


The next day we decided to head over to Multnomah Falls. The last time Dustin and I were here was about 6 years ago when we lived here previously. We took Maddy who was 2 and we started up the trail and decided that she was to scarily dangerous trying to run off the sides and headed home. We braved it this time though with Lilly. I guess when you only have one you don't want to risk losing them but now we have three so if one goes over the side we still have two left.......JUST KIDDING!

Multnomah Falls is this AMAZING waterfall that is like 600 hundred feet up or something and we climbed to the top with all three kids! It is like a mile and a half or something uphill to get there. Good thing the weather was overcast and off and on sprinkling to cool us off because we were all pretty sweaty and hot. Dustin especially who had to pretty much carry Lilly up and down the mountain! He was SO sore after. I was proud of the girls for making it up there though.

We finally made it up to the top. I honestly don't know how long it took us to get up and down but it was a LONG time!


We were all a little tempted to go back down this way!

Maddy was totally copping an attitude for some reason the whole weekend. I thought this picture best illustrated that.

We had a very fun weekend. Thanks for visiting us!

Okay, that picture of Maddy with her attitude is AWESOME. Not that she was probably that fun to be around, but I love the picture. It captures it sooo well.
Liv has a serious attitude that comes out sometimes and it just makes me wonder where my little girl went, and who this angry, pouty child is! The future looks scary when you have a not-so-little girl.

Looks like there is so much fun stuff to do up there! I can't believe how old Maddy looks...could it be the pouty face? :) She just looks so grown up!

Your weekended sounded like fun. The falls looked amazing!

What a fun weekend - I love that waterfall, it looks so beautiful! It's true that you don't usually explore fun things to do locally until you have out of town guests come!

I am so glad that someone elses little girl is copping an attitude because Sam has started to get pretty moody too.
