Every year my family takes a trip to Sunriver. This is one of the few times when we are all together. I look forward to this trip every year. Sunriver is one of my favorite places to be, and this year was no exception. We were there five days and managed to get about....oh, 5 pictures. So i've included most of them. We did get some video, but we are lame at taking pictures.
The week went by so fast. We went for long bike rides, Played tennis, went swimming, played the Wii, Relaxed, and soaked in the hot tub. We also celebrated my mom's birthday with a flaming cake! (literally) Brent ran in a 5 mile race and came in 5th overall (about 30 people participated) and 2nd in his age bracket. I did the 3 mile walk with my sisters.
One night Brent and I and my sister Kelly, rode our bikes down to the "village" to watch a concert. Well we stayed a little too long and the sun went down. You have to understand that in Sunriver, they don't have lit bike paths. It is very dark and you can't ride on the roads. So we had an exciting bike ride home (maybe 2-3miles?) in the (almost) pitch dark. We could see about 5 feet in front of us at all times. We had fun laughing as we prayed we wouldn't crash into any trees....or deer.
Brent had a great time golfing with his "Brothers" early one morning. What a handsome guy!

My brother Stephen and Brother-in-law Garrick.
Malia with her cousins Becca, Emma and Evan. They had a great time playing together. Malia has been a little bit Sassy lately, so I have to thank her cousins for putting up with her. Any advice on sassy seven year olds? This is my first time and i'm pretty inexperienced in this area (parenting that is)

The girls put on a "show" for everyone on the fourth of July. The sang some songs and read some facts about independence day. They were so excited and had chairs set up for all of the adults. It was really cute!

It was a fabulous trip and we are now home. The house is a disaster and we have 3 days to get ready for the county fair, which starts on Thursday and which i'm absolutely dreading. I'm wondering why I signed us up for this thing...we'll see if it's worth all the work?? Wish us luck.

Thanks for sharing. I'm glad Brent found the ladies' golf clubs!

I'm glad you had such a great time. Good luck with the county fair--I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end (just like watching "The Bachelor")
