Sun & Fun on the River...& a Scary Morning

My mom, B & Cayden came down for the weekend. We spent Saturday a.m. at the Barn House sale, then stopped for 45 minutes at Meadowglenn Farms (picked 12 lbs of berries) and spent the rest of the day on the Columbia. B & Mom

Cayden enjoying the warm water.
Omid dropped us off at an island to sit in the sun.

He took the kids tubing. Here is Matty. He wanted to go fast....
Omid went fast & Matty got sprayed!

Then Omid came back to get the rest of us. B & my mom didn't want to go tubing at all, but Omid convinced my mom to try it. My mom and I got on the tube together. My mom said, "I know where I am going when I die, I just don't want it to be today." Well, the next thing we know, the tube is flipping and we are in the water (I told her she jinxed us). Apparently, we were sitting too far forward and somersaulted in. Omid drove back to get us and pulled my mom in the boat. I decided to give it another try (that old adage about falling off the horse and getting back on...). I sat farther back this time and had no problems. My mom got on for another try too and did just fine. I should probably mention that Omid pulled us at about 2 mph too. :) After pulling us to shore, it was B & Cayden's turn.

Woo hoo!

Thumbs up for tubing!

Remy & his sporty lifejacket. Remy swam lots & slept good!

Exploring the island.
After we came home, Omid grilled a tuna & a London broil for dinner. It was good! We went to bed early as we were exhausted from the day in the sun.
Around 5:00 a.m. this morning, we all awoke to the carbon monoxide & the smoke alarms. Everyone went outside while Omid and I opened all the windows & doors. I called the fire department. They said to ventilate the house, then close everything up again to see if the alarms sound again. We did that while my mom & B took the kids (& Remy) to Starbucks. The good thing was, the alarms didn't go off. Omid thinks it is something with the furnace/AC he will be checking it out further today.

Maybe someone at your house just really wanted Starbucks.....
