Aaron's New Room

Aaron's grown out of his star wars room and has moved on to a lacrosse room. 
We found this great print here

We'll paint next week and Aaron will have a new room.

 New paint finally

Fridays are adventure days

We try to do something new on Fridays.  We look for a new lasertag place, make a run to Seattle for indoor skydiving or play in a nearby river.  This Friday we tried out Portland's indoor bike park, the Lumberyard.  Here.  Aaron and his buddy Cooper had a great time, got new biking gloves and played for hours.  What ideas do you have for fun Friday adventures for preteens?

Go Aaron!

July Highlights

A wonderful 4th of July party with friends:

I found this Henna at Urban here and it was big hit!

We got to swim with our dear friends before the block party down the street.  They loved the big diving boards and rope swing. Plus we went to the party feeling cool.

Aaron got to go to football camp with his buddy Jax

We saw the Minion movie-really cute:

We spent time at D block skating

Mountain biking weekend with dear friends. We spent time hiking, swimming, biking and eating too many burgers. 

The boys with their air soft guns.  Aaron got this new one.

Aaron got to take lacrosse lessons from a great coach from Latitude 45 Lacrosse.

And a great basketball camp through George Fox University

Lots of trips to the pool-our favorite pool got this new slide for open swim.  It already has numerous diving boards, rope swing, a basketball hoop and a floating obstacle course that visits. 

Plus Robin Hood Festival:
This was a great weekend with a parade and dancing, live music and drinks with friends:

Aaron on football float:

Aaron started taking swim lessons to work on his strokes twice a week.  His crawl stroke is better than mine!

Aaron loves this new boom rapid fire he picked up with his allowance.
We took our first trip to the Lumberyard
