BC: Smiling is infectious, you catch it like the flu. When someone smiled at me today I started smiling too. . I passed around the corner, and someone saw my grin. When he smiled I realized. I'd passed it on to him. I thought about that smile, then realized it's worth. A single smile just like mine, could travel round the earth. So, if you feel a smile begin, don't leave it undetected. Let's start an epidemic quick, and get the WORLD infected.
1: Elijah, Do you know how much I love you? As DEEP as the Ocean & As HIGH as the Sky THAT'S HOW MUCH | This Book Created Especially For: Elijah Alexander Henderson By: Grandma Robin Who Loves You So Very Much | November 2012
3: I got to spend 2 weeks with my Grandma and Grandpa. The 4TH of July came while I was there. Grandma took some pictures of the FIREWORKS we saw. These are like BIG sparklers in the sky.
4: Hadynn and I did our FIREWORKS together...It was so........
5: Anthony was too tired to do his FIREWORKS. So he did his the next night.
7: This is "OLIVER" he lives at Grandma and Grandpa's house. He was a real good boy, he didn't even get scared when we did our FIREWORKS.
8: For Vacation we stayed for 1 week in Washington at Grandma Robin's and PaPa Lew's house and then we went to Idaho. In the Summer time Great Grandpa and Great Grandma go camping....for the WHOLE Summer!!!! They live in a trailer and have the kitchen outside. Great Grandpa goes fishing in his boat EVERY DAY. He took us fishing too. Me, Hadynn and Anthony. I caught the BIGGEST fish. Hadynn took my picture with the big fish. When we got back to camp, Great Grandpa made fish for dinner. I didn't want to eat any. Grandma and PaPa Lew said I had to try some. Great Grandpa said it taste like "chicken" Chicken Fish. I DONT like Great Grandpa's "Chicken Fish" While we were camping we slept in a tent. Hadynn took us kayaking. We went swimming in the lake. We made walking sticks with PaPa Lew and we went for walks on the trails.
9: When we were done camping we went to stay at the Condo's for a few nights. We got to go to the swimming pools and the hot tub's. We went to downtown McCall Idaho and walked around town. It was really hot out side. PaPa Lew took us out for an ice cream cone for a special treat. Even though we had ice cream at the Condo's. We went for a walk around the park and played in the water to cool off. Back at the Condo's we watched movies, put puzzles together and helped Grandma make cookies.....Then we helped EAT them. In a few days it was time to leave Idaho and go back home to Oregon. It was a really long drive back home so we stopped at a motel for one night to rest. I had fun on vacation. Maybe someday I can do it again.
10: That is Great Grandpa Lew and Great Grandma Donna | They Live in Caldwell Idaho
12: Hadynn towed me in my own Kayak | The Biggest Fish
14: We went exploring behind the Condo's. We found this big rock to climb on. At the club house we found these bears carved out of wood. Somebody asked if they could take a picture of the whole family
16: We had LOTS of Swimming Pool fun!!
17: FLOATING in the Hot Tub Around in circles we went
18: These Bears were just waiting to have their picture taken with us....Grandpa had me and Anthony and Grandma get close to them and he took our picture.
19: We could see a lot of very nice boats in the Marina from the park. | At the Park we played in this area that sprayed water out of the ground. We got wet, but it was so hot we dried off really fast!
20: Can you see our Milk Mustache??
21: Grandma let us help her make cookies. We they were done baking we ate a lot of them. We had a big glass of milk and that is when we got our Milk Mustache!! | Grandma and PaPa Lew thought they were the VERY BEST cookies they ever had. Because WE made them.
22: On the day we had to leave Grandma let us try and eat ALL the ice cream we had left. It would melt in the car so we HAD to try! | Yummy!!!
23: PaPa Lew and I worked on Puzzles together. I really like to do puzzles and so does PaPa Lew. Grandma brought several for us to work on.
24: These wood carved Bear benches were at the club house. We stopped to "POSE" for pictures before we headed back for Oregon.
25: We collected some Pine Cones. They were really big. We had to be careful because Pine Cones "poke" you.
27: Grandma took these pictures when we stopped to see Daddy. | We finally made it back to Oregon
28: "Oosterdam" That was the name of our ship. We took all of these pictures from the balcony of our stateroom. The scenery was so beautiful.
