Turns out, the Call of the Wild is . . . . .Pringles

What a fantastic week we had. A relaxing time, beautiful scenery, good friends, lots of food, and just plain good times.

Then, there was the wildlife. Deer lounging in your campsite, people's yards, and the state park. Squirrels and chipmunks begging for a treat. Bald eagles fishing in the lake where the kids were playing. It all added up to a week full of fun.

Of course, there was the pre-requisite first night in the Wal-Mart parking lot. That's how our kids knew we were on vacation. It's a great way to break up a long drive, yet still save your vacation $$. But, who am I kidding, by the time we left that store the next morning, there was a LARGE dent in our vacation $$! Colton cried on the way home, because we just drove all the way through. "Why can't we break up the drive and stay at a Wal-Mart?!!?" Oh, the good times.

Here are the highlights of the week:

We hiked.

We shopped.

We raced.

We rode.

We swam.

We relaxed.

We fed.

And fed.

And fed.

And fed some more.

We observed.

We posed.

And posed.

And posed some more.

We were friends.

And helpers.

And mama's boys.

But mostly, we unplugged. And enjoyed God's majesty. There was a lot of that around this little mountain lake. A really lot.

PS - if you ever get the chance to visit the beautiful, majestic Wallowa Lake, take some Sour Cream & Onion Pringles - it's your best bet for success when you're ignoring the "Do Not Feed The Deer" signs ;)
