Winthrop Camping

Leave a comment Standard

I know I’ve mentioned it before but we love camping in Winthrop.  This year, like many places in Washington, they have had much cooler temperatures and more rain.  We were amazed to see so much green!  By the time we make it there all the hills fields have turned brown but this year, even in July, things were green and beautiful.

Greg and I head to Winthrop for the heat but Zoe likes Winthrop for two specific reasons.  The ice cream…

…and the swimming.

The boys didn’t care much about the water but they loved the sand.  Zeke made friends with anyone that had a bucket and shovel.

Just another memorable trip to Winthrop.

Yep.  And we have proof.  Toby actually playing fetch and enjoying it! 

So far the only thing he’ll fetch are his bones and eventually it turns into more chase than fetch but, we’re enjoying it!

The boys love to throw the bone for him but when Toby actually chases it they (especially Oliver) change thier minds and scream.

So they stand on the sidelines holding their bones as Zoe throws one for Toby.

Flying High

That was Greg and Zoe last week as they went on an intro to flying class.  Zoe was in charge of photos.  I’ll share with you a few of the many, many pictures that were taken.  It was so much fun to see all the places they were able to fly over.   Let’s start off with the irresistible self portrait.

Zoe’s view from the back seat.

This is the plane they were flying in. 

And a view of our house.  The blue roof is us.  I got a call from Greg just as they were approaching the house.  Zeke and I ran outside to see them circling us.  He didn’t quite believe that dad was in the plane.  When asked where dad was he would point to the plan but then get a funny smile on his face and say “No.”  Although now when we hear a plane outside and dad is gone he asks “Daddy?”

And here’s Zoe with the instructor Miss April.  With the exception of a little motion sickness from some tight circles Greg and Zoe had a blast.  The ladies at the terminal even brought up some cookies for Zoe before they landed to help settle her stomach.
