Wallowa Lake Adventure

In July, we went to Wallowa Lake with my parents and sister. I had been expecting a hot vacation in the middle of a cool, rainy Western Oregon summer, but instead we got rained on in Wallowa Lake after a month of hot dry weather at home! But we still had a lot of fun!

Grandma Rachel funded a ride on a kiddy ride after Phinehas and Elena put up with a round of mini-golf!
Smores on the deck!

Hiking on Mount Howard

More S'mores!

A little trepidation on the tram up to the top of Mt. Howard

Kind of an amazing view!
Dad and Michael took the three older kids fishing. Unforunately they were out doing that during a couple of cloudbursts. Monica did catch one fish, though. Yeah. We're not really a successful fishing family.  I'm not sure Dad enjoyed cleaning the fish while everybody else ran for the van, but he suffered cheerfully. Mom, Katy, Elena and I went to Joseph while they were out in the rain and had coffee, went shopping, and ate lunch. It's a hard-knock-life, right? ;-)

Also, we drove go-karts, took a tram to the top of a mountain, had fresh enormous order-ahead-of-time donuts, went mini-golfing, and even attended a folk-music concert at a historic theatre in Enterprise. What more could you ask!
