A Day in the Park

On April 18 we had gorgeous weather so we decided to spend some time at the park. We went to a neat one called Palmerton Park. It's full of big, old trees and a river with a bridge spanning it. Brynlee and Parker wasted no time climbing one of the largest trees in the park.

Spencer was excited to join them in the tree.

Austin joins the group!

Carson had a great time with the hula-hoop - he is very good at it, just like all his older siblings.

Austin surprised me with this great pose!

Mommy loves Brooklyn!

Parker says, "Cheese!"

Riley found a bug on the way up to the slide.

Daddy gazes at Brooklyn.

We took a walk down to the river.

We had a rock skipping contest -

Who's rock went the farthest?

Austin found a great rock to skip - it's shaped like Utah!!

Let it rip!

Brynlee goes to great lengths to get a great skipping rock!
Riley gets in on the action, too!
This is the 'R' on the hill for 'Rogue River' - we live on this hill under the R.
You can see it very well from the park.

This is the bridge that spans the river.

Here's the family on the bridge!

Austin holds Brooklyn - he adores her!

On the way back to the Suburban, Brynlee found an egg filled with candy from Easter.

Dave wanted to find one, too!

Riley begged us to let him push the stroller back to the burb.

Pushing it wasn't going very well - pulling worked better for him.
He wouldn't let us help him at all!


  1. Your kids are so cute and Brooklyn is so big, I am sad we never get to see you!

  2. That looks so pretty and FUN! I cannot believe how big baby Brooklyn is getting.

  3. funny stuff! Your family is awesome. We will miss you guys.
