A summer pictorial

This summer has been way to busy for me to have much *fun computer time*, so rather than writing pages and pages of all that you have missed from the Sampson bunch, I decided to show you in pics.  
Here we go...
Father's Day weekend we went to the Oregon Coast.  The kids and I hadn't been to the Oregon coast ever.  It is very different than the California coast that we are used to, but we were prepared for chilly, windy weather.  We had fun playing on the beach, shopping in downtown Seaside, and we rented a bike for 5 (super fun!).

Brennan turned 6 and Parker turned 3!

In July, we took a trip back to Missouri to visit the Sampson family and spend some time with Grandma Sampson.  That trip was so much fun for all of us.  Andrew and Bren were in *big boy* heaven (giant trampolines, 4-wheelers, the Ranger, huge slip-and-slides, swimming with frogs, and more). What I miss most is fresh sweet corn, picked by the boys from the fields any time of day!!  Mmmmmmm....

We just recently got back from a long (but fun) trek down to the Bay Area.  Matt and I were able to work on some stuff for the first Bay Area Sparrow Club :) and spend some great time with family.  We attended Mark and Emily's wedding, celebrated my dad's bday with him, and I went on my 30th birthday trip to Disneyland!!!

A picture taken especially for Alisha!  Wishing that I was having Mickey ice cream with you!

And at the end of our "Cali Adventure" we were able to take the boys to 75 cent night @ the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.  Mom and Poppi took us to Gilroy Gardens (which was beautiful!).
