Favorite Places

We had such a fun time meeting with the family. This night Grandpa bought us all dinner.

Ryken, Jantsen, Lindsey and Darek enjoyed playing on the beach.

We went to see all Kent's favorite things. These are some shots from the Portland Japanese Gardens. We had Wendy and Ryken with us all week and really enjoyed our time with them.

The main waterfall in the Portland Japanese Gardens.

Kent loves looking at beautiful rose gardens. This one is in the Portland Rose Garden.

Oregon Trip

Lindsey and Kent enjoyed looking at the "critters" in the water. The only problem is that the water off the Oregon Coast is very cold!

We went to lunch at "Mo's" so that we could have clam chowder. Rolayne, Kent, Darek, Wendy, Ryken, Lindsey and Jantsen enjoyed some hours at the coast. Salem was experience record heat while we were there, so we went to Lincoln City on the coast.

We went to Silver Creek Falls, one of Kent's favorite places. Ryken, Lindsey and Jantsen enjoyed the hike.

Dave, Shawnee, Kent, Wendy and Rolayne. We hiked a long way around the falls. It was beautiful!

Grandpa Sellers enjoyed listening to the family sit around and tell stories. We are putting his stories together in a history of his life. It was fun to spend time with him.
