For CJ's birthday this year, we went to the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI).  It's a great interactive museum that teaches kids with a hands-on approach.  We had a great time, but I'm sure that 11-year old CJ and 11-year old Holly would have had an even better time!  We also visited the exhibit, Mummies of the World.  That was a fascinating exhibit!

4th of July

This year, CJ, myself, and some friends of ours spent our 4th of July holiday at Tree to Tree Adventure Park in Gaston, Oregon.  It was a great time!  Afterwards we had a BBQ and watched fireworks in Forest Grove.
