.:Sunriver 2015:.

We look forward to going to Sunriver every summer. My parents decided to invest in the house that we usually stay in, so it was kind of cool to be there this year, knowing it was my parent's house! They have done some updating to the house and it looks great!

We loaded up the car, bikes and all, and headed up!

This is how you keep babies happy in the car when they really don't love being in their car seat for too long!

We kicked off our first day with a bike ride to the lodge for cokes. The ladies enjoyed trying out some stunts while we were there.


We ran some errands..


And made our first Goody's run.

This year we tried out a new hike. It was fun to go somewhere new, and everyone loved it. Well, Jabes didn't love it right away, but then he was okay. 

All the grandies in their matching shirts! 


Love this family of mine!

This group of kids hiked down to the bottom of the falls. It was pretty steep, and they all did awesome. Remi especially was a star hiker! She was just hiking along like it was nothing! I think we need to get this girl into the mountains more often!

Everett was an absolute sweetheart to Jabes the entire week. It was so cute!

We took turns doing a longer bike ride without kids. It was quite the workout, but an awesome ride!

We spent an afternoon at SHARC, where Jabes was in water heaven.

Josh, Reece, and I had a great time riding the water slides, too!

Our SHARC afternoon was followed by a Hawaiian nite! It was super fun, the kids loved doing the limbo!

Every year my parents do a nite bike ride for kids who can ride without training wheels. Reece was so excited to have learned over the summer so that she could go!

Remi was sad to not be able to go, so hopefully that will be incentive to learn nextyear!

My parents take them on the small loop, and stop along the way to tell them some tales about wolves. Then it's off to Goody's for some ice cream!

The boys went for their shooting morning, and then to a movie, so we took the kiddos to see Inside Out. We actually got asked if we were a pre-school!

The next morning was time for favorite things for the ladies! This is one of my most favorite traditions of Sunriver! We ate a yummy breakfast at the lodge and exchanged gifts.

After that we headed out for pedicures! Also another favorite tradition. 

The kids enjoyed having an un-birthday party in the park!

We had a Mexican nite, complete with a pinata! The kids all though it was pretty great; they all walked away with a bag full of candy!

More twinning - dads and babies!

Riverbend has a separate apartment that our family was staying in this time around. We had a bat visitor! The kids all though it was pretty awesome, but pretty much it was way freaky! It kept flying all around, and I was guilty of lots of squealing and screaming. It was horrible!

We spent our last day with everyone there blowing bubbles,

riding bikes,

and going to Goody's one last time!

It was an excellent week, and we're so grateful for the efforts of everyone to make it so fun for all of us!
