The boys loved these bears in Sunriver. Every time we walked by Judah would take the hat off the bear and put it on himself (like in the picture), then put it on the other bear, and the boys would talk to the bears. They, also, loved their shirts from Nana!
We visited the High Desert Museum in Bend, Oregon. Here's my mom and sister out in front with Silas.
Here is me out in front with my (four!) kiddos. Silas was tired and, obviously, not very excited about the picture. He fell asleep after we got inside and my mom pushed him around for a few minutes.
My grandma loved the eagles. She wanted us to take a picture just of them, but my sister made her get in the picture, too! :)

There were these crazy chipmunks outside. They weren't afraid of people and would come right up to you for food.
No, seriously, they would attack you. They ran right on to mine and my mom's shoe and one even bit Miranda (my sister)!! Is this normal for Oregon?

After leaving the museum I asked Judah what his favorite part was. He said, "all of the animals." Then, I asked Samuel. He said, "The birds eating the deer." I wish I would have taken a picture. It was a life size model of turkey vultures that had eaten the middle of a dead deer laying on its side. It must have been memorable for Samuel. I'm sure he's seen nothing like it.

The last night we were there we drove up to Mt. Bachelor. The boys were SOO excited to see the snow. They didn't even mind that it was patchy and dirty. Judah even put some in a water bottle to show Papa. Too bad it melted.
