Troy's parents were here last week. They took us to dinner, took us to lunch, filled our gas tank!, played with the boys, went to Garrett's soccer game and swimming lesson, and went up to the dinosaur park in Ogden. The day they went up to the park, I stayed home (since we'd otherwise have needed to take two cars or someone would have had to ride on the roof) and cleaned the house. It snowed on them so I'm not particularly sad about staying home.

Despite the rain and brief snow, the boys had a great time.

This picture cracks me up. According to some people it is absolutely impossible to be a fan of both Oregon and Oregon State. I also think that, according to some people, it's impossible to get along with anyone who cheers for the opposite team. My children and father-in-law are demonstrating that fans of both teams can even be seen in the same picture without someone suddenly bursting into flames.
Garrett decided he was a Beaver fan because, well, he likes beavers. Duh.
The boys had a good time with their grandparents. We'll be seeing them again shortly as we're roadtripping (I convulse at the thought of the money we'll spend on gas) there in July.


  1. Looks like a very fun visit! I'm so excited to take my boys to the dinosaur park this summer. They have never been. Love the Oregon/Oregon State comments. :) It is quite the rivalry.

    I shudder to think about the gas bill from our summer trips as well. When I was in CA this weekend the gas at my parents house was already 4.15. Yikes!

  2. WHY. why do you insist on visiting whenever I'm not around?

    specifically: when will you be in OR? I'll be in Kenya July 12-27 and then promptly leave for a family reunion July 28-30.
