Manning Park...

On Tony's day off over the weekend, we decided to go to Manning Park for the day. This is where Tony, Nicki and Joey go skiing each winter. It was a beautiful day. The kids had a great time swimming...playing with the MANY prairie dogs...and just having a good time. The view was beautiful...

Here are the kiddos...

Joey, Nicki, Tony, and Ryan

Little Kaycee, at 7 months old, is standing up on EVERYTHING now!

Look out she comes!!

How about this view??!!

The road below is the park we just swam and ate at...

Trip to The Great Wolf Lodge...

We went down to The Great Wolf Lodge with the kids and our friends, The Jacobs.
We had a GREAT time! It is basically a hotel, with waterslides on the inside, and so much to do, we didn't even have a chance to do it all.
We had GREAT rooms, and were thrilled to find out when we got there that we had been upgraded for free. I believe the room they put us in was the Grizzley Suite...Tony and I had our own room, the kids had their own room and there was a separate living room. It was nice and cozy, and rustic looking. If you are interested...check it out online!

Here are the friends: (Yes, we have friends!)
Joe, Hallie, Sophia and Derrick

We also went to NW Trek...we went to this zoo a couple of years ago. Don't know what Ryan was thinking when I took this picture. Told them, "Smile, I want to get a picture..." And Ryan broke out his best Gangster pose...
Yo...Homey...Wuzzzz Uppppp????

On the way home from the zoo, we decided to stop at this cute little restaurant, called, The Little Red Barn. Well, we were happy as clams to be going in and getting a nice, country style meal...Uhhh...ya.
Thought we left the zoo behind! Instead, as we went inside, we were greated by Wanda...(names have been changed to protect the innocent...) Wanda told us to just to just sit down...we did what Wanda said, as Wanda didn't look like someone we wanted to argue with. Just ask Hallie! Our friend Joe ordered the salad bar...figured he was the smart one. Until later, I told him I should have had the salad bar, and Joe's reply was, "No Jimi...only one of us needs to get salmanilla." Oh My! Their were a few more customers coming in the door...Bubba. Jim-Bob, his brother Darrel and his other brother Darryl. We came to the conclusion that Jeff Foxworthy must have come up with most of his jokes at this establishment. "You know your a redneck..." Ya.
As we left the restaurant, I found we were leaving with a friend...a worm that had attached himself to MY ARM! I do believe he was BEGGING to get out of there!
I'm Just Sayin'...
