Over the River and through the woods

Well it is no secret I am a major rock hound and I took advantage of the Mother's Day weekend to get my family out of the house and into the woods and along some of our beautiful Oregon rivers. On Saturday we went out to the Sandy River near Troutdale,Oregon. There were so many rocks out there I could have spent all day but it was hot and there was no shade for the kids so we didn't stay very long. We go locked out of our van but Papa saved the day in record time, he is good at that, this is the second time I locked us out. We stopped for ice cream cones on the way home.


On Sunday we headed out along the Clackamas River out past Estacada, Oregon for a bit. I have read that this is a good spot for rock hunting, but I have never found anything out there. No big loss it was a pleasure just to be out of the city in the forest for a while.




The best part of Mother's Day was that all of my kids were pretty well behaved and nice to me, ALL day!
Best gift ever!
