Eagle Crest!

We're home!

Here's a shot of the Eagle Crest house.

Here is everyone on a trip to Sisters. (I was the one taking the pic...)

Here we are outside of the Sisters Public Library.
Why did we go to the library when there were so many other fun things to be done, you ask?

Well, Shawn was desperate to find a computer with an internet connection to feed his Fantasy Baseball Addiction.
(As you can see from the little green Starbucks straw peeking out from the cupholder, though, I had to feed my addiction, too, so I can't give him too much gripe...) :)

The awesome play structure - you can see Charlie and Shawn over on the left, and Mike and Ellie and Blake on the slides.

"Let's go, daddy!"

Another trip to Sisters. This time, we went to see Uncle John's awesome ranch. 25 acres, 3 horses, a donkey, 2 dogs, 6 cats, and TONS of deer!

Charlie kept "moo-ing" at the horses. I think we need to work on the animal sounds a little more...

Charlie especially liked the deer.

"Mo deer, mo deer. Bye-bye, deer."

Video clip of the deer.

On the way back from Sisters, a rare occurrence. Charlie actually FELL ASLEEP in the car!

We spent lots of time playing on the back porch!

Charlie, Ellie, and Jasmine playing "Hide Uncle Shawn Under the Blankie".

Charlie and daddy.

Jasmine and Ellie - pretty in pink.

Charlie, Shawn, and "Gompa" at the park.

Sneaking in a hug before running off to play with the cousins.

Chillin' on the couch, watching some sports.

Jasmine feeding Charlie his oatmeal - this became a morning ritual.

A cute little video clip of the daily oatmeal feed. :)

"Hey, who wants to play Tetris?!"

"We do!"

"Maybe we should just stick to 'Ring Around the Rosey'!"

Another favorite hang-out: the garage.

The pink Barbie scooters were a big hit.
Charlie's noggin is too big for the kid helmets, so he had to use an adult one.

Post-bath (and pre-clothes) chicken nuggets.

The next few shots are for you, Bryan (and anyone else who might happen to be obsessed with cool ponds...)
The pond in the front yard.

The pond has 3 waterfalls. You can see the first one on the left.

Here are the other 2 on the right.

This is a shot from above, this little "mini-creek" runs along the top of the pond and then flows down to the 2 waterfalls.

Back to our favorite subject...Charlie. :)
Coloring, or rather "colowing", with Jasmine

"Hi, mommy!"

Ellie and Jasmine being nutty on the stairs.

These gals are so silly!

Charlie was such a help with the puzzle.

Ellie, Blake, and Christine - look at those smiles!

Charlie dippin' his feet in the pool.

Couldn't get Charlie to look at me here, he was too busy plotting ways to steal that other kid's fun toys.

We found the boys getting into trouble in the closet.

Another morning, another oatmeal feeding.

"Open wide, like this!"

Still working on that puzzle...we eventually just gave up.

Playing with a golf ball holder-thingy. This provided hours of cheap entertainment.

Charlie, Blake, and Eli eating dinner.

Being goofy with Jasmine.

We went on lots of bike rides!

Back home for some popcorn and movies. :)

And a little goofing off, too!
(Can you tell they are a little excited to be back home???)
