Dive in Movie

Last night Gem and I went to take the kids to open swim as the weather was so good but ended up watching Gomeo and Juliet in the pool.  I wasn't keen to stay at first but Jonah was desperate and actually it turned out to be a good evening.  However, I'm not sure health and safety back home would allow such a thing as you can imagine 100 kids in a pool in the dark!!!!  They did have scuba divers checking and lots of life guards in the pool so we felt safe.

Slightly drier than Portland.....

We headed East this weekend to Tumalo State Park for a camping trip with friends.  It's right on the Deschutes River and the kids had hours of fun floating up and down on inflatables, Jonah made a friend and the pair of them must've been in the water for 4 hours just swimming up and down.  He was blue by the time he got out as the water is not that warm.  We also stopped of at Smiths Rock State Park which was spectacular and we will be going back for another trip in a couple of weeks.

We have finally moved to a house with a yard, not quite unpacked yet but getting there.  Not sure I want to move again for a while......
