The River.

Growing up, I spent most of my summer weekends at the river.  We'd ski and fish and play for hours on end.  I would say that most of my happy childhood memories took place on those crisp banks.

It's a surreal feeling taking my five children there now, experiencing The Mighty Columbia through their eyes.
 









  Summer's the perfect time to re-create happy memories, wouldn't you agree?

    P.S.
    I just looked at the placenta teddy bear that you linked in Twitter...yes, so very disturbing...on so many levels!

  6. I just found your blog thought your memory tutorial, which is awesome and want to try to do. I just moved to the Tri-Cities area a few weeks ago! I am loving it so far.
    I am sad that I don't have an 8 year old and that I wasn't in town for your craft camp. Have you thought of doing one for women? please?
    Your blog is great, keep up the wonderful stuff!

  8. There is nothing more fun that planting the family near a river (or in my case a lake) for a week. It's so much fun. If you were to ask my kids their favorite vacation spot, they would both say "Bass Lake!"

    You are making great memories friend.

  9. lovely.

    i had to tell you....the first week of summer i was driving home from swim lessons and had this birlliant idea. "CRAFT CAMP!!!" i was bursting with ideas. it really came out of no where. so excited.
    then by night time i was like "What in the world are you thinking megan?! you can't even get dinner made!" so craft camp went away.
    so....
    i tell you that so that you know that YOU are awesome that you are pulling it off! good for you!
