Deviating from normal

I don’t get out nearly as much as I should, but we bought a 1 year state parks pass a couple months ago and haven’t used it once. Considering I only need to use it once a month to get my money out of it, I’m trying to do that (trying for every 2 weeks or better actually). One of our closest ones is Silver Falls State Park, we’ve been there many times and the kids love it (3 year old has been asking for a week to go). We went and saw the falls and started on a hike. Not very far into it, my 5 year old got his first ever blister (he insisted on wearing his Iron Man shoes instead of his good walking ones, hopefully lesson learned) and we managed to forget the first aid kit (first time ever and we needed it) so we had to head home instead of going to the swimming hole and playground, but it wasn’t a bad couple hours away from work. I got good enough photos that I could mess around with them in Photoshop anyway!

    Its always nice to go to the park to relax, picnic or for nature walks. Good to appreciate nature and other living things on mother Earth.

    Hi Amy~~ Your cute and sweet children look so happy to be there. These photos must have been taken BEFORE the blister. 🙂

    Silver Falls is an amazing place. It’s got everything: water, forest, trails…and it’s not that far off the beaten path.

    I hope you can take in more of Oregon’s wonderful scenery. I think we live in the most beautiful place in the world. I’m biased.

    Thank you Grace =) We love this area too. You’re not biased, it really is the best!
