Erik's Visit

August 20th~ Erik spent his week of vacation in Eugene, and we were all so excited to get to hang out with him!!  My boys love Uncle Erik...all the kids do!  It was an awesome week full of all kinds of FUN!
Eating at Burrito Boy is always a must  when Erik is here. (:  Julia was able to be in town for a few days also! 
When Ronan and Griffin found out that Uncle Erik would be coming, they asked if they could call & ask him to remember to bring his skateboard. (:  He did...and they had a lot of fun practicing tricks together.
Admiring Uncle Erik's board:
Just chillin'
Poor Tate came home from camping with a bad cold.  He needed some special attention from Papa (:
8/21~ More skateboarding at our house...
 ...tryin' out the fun box that Josh built. (:
8/22~ Josh worked a half day and then we went to Shotgun Creek with Erik, the Henrys, and my parents who also had the Chase kids with them (Aaron & Becca were working).  We had heard that it gets really crowded there on the weekends, but being a Monday we practically had the whole swimming area to ourselves!
Griffin & Cohen getting used to the cold water!
*I borrowed the next three pictures from Katrina's blog (:

 All the cousins--oldest to youngest (:
 That evening we enjoyed a night out with my parents & siblings for Happy Hour at El Torito to celebrate Father's Day! (It was Papa's one request and it only took us two months to coordinate it?!?!  But, it worked out for the best because this way Erik was able to join us!)

*I borrowed the next two pictures from Katrina. (:


8/23~  A sushi night is another must when Erik is here! 


 For Erik's last night in town, the whole family came over to our house to eat dinner &  hang out.  The kids enjoyed the hot tub...
..and the adults had a good time visiting.
The whole "Hecht" clan!
SO night to be all together again!

Camping- last day

After packing up our campsite we went with the rest of the family to a nearby beach in Yachats to explore the tide pools.  I'm so glad we did because it was a lot of fun and the weather was just perfect!  We had such a fun time camping and this was such a great way to finish off the weekend!
Tate napped while we walked around...

Grandpa & three of his grandsons, Griffin, Ronan, & Dylan

Griffin watching the powerful waves:
Our fam (:
The Green Family
Mom & Dad with the Creager kids
All the grand kids with Grammie & Grandpa (plus Jon & me helping hold a couple of the kids) (:
When Tate woke up he liked crawling around in the sand...
...and watching the waves with Daddy.
Mama & our sweet middle one (:
We spent a lot of time hanging out in this cove area.  The boys had fun throwing sticks into the water and waiting for the waves to bring them back to the shore. 

Tiny toes in the water...
Our three boys:
We finished off the day at a beach that had tiny agates in the sand!
(& some pretty cute kids in the sand, too)
