This summer we are doing staycations, instead of doing one big vacation. Last weekend we went to Silver Falls near Silverton, Oregon. It was a hot, but beautiful day. I loved the fields of flowers on the way there. The last time I went to Silver Falls, I was a teenager, this time I was there with my hubby and four boys. Jason's brother Matt and his wife Heidi came with their kids, plus a couple of their nieces. We kept the hike short, just down to the falls and back up. The kids had fun climbing on the rocks under the falls with the little caves. After our climb back up the kids cooled of in the swimming hole. Afterwards, we all went out to pizza together. It was a fun day!
