On the Making of New Memories

From this weekend~
We've had a little visitor for several days now and have been very busy making memories...
playing at a playground,
eating out 
clothes shopping
(in anticipation of the warm temps forecasted for later this week),
story time at a library,
bedtime prayers
(A LOT of)
bedtime procrastination
by a certain young lady.
And did I say? 
having LOTS and LOTS of fun!
Today we continued that fun in the historic Oregon City area.
First up (in the photos at least) a stop at the Willamette Falls Scenic Overlook--
where Small One learned that a long, long time ago her daddy almost
made an unexpected trip over these very falls in a boat along with his brother, dad and auntie
(but fortunately they didn't).
Notice something Grandma neglected to do this morning?
Grandma needs to take care of that when Small One wakes up.
Of course we had to pay our respects to the natives...
native birds that is.
And, as always, there were many of our feathered friends there today--
pigeons, ducks and geese.
Lots of fisherman, dogs and happy people too
(it's hard not to be happy when you are standing in a park
 built between two rivers on a somewhat sunny day)
We were able to get really, really close this time...
Aren't they beautiful?
Small One said this was her favorite activity today..
it was mine too:)
LOVED this duck!
  More memories made on this pretty spring day...
MUCH less scary than the ones made at the falls decades ago.
How was your Saturday? Did you make some new memories.
Blessings, Aimee 

Sorry that I am a bit behind on my blog browsing...
hope to catch up on all of your blogs later this week when the Small One leaves :)

Such fun to do things with a grandchild! Nice duck and geese photos.

Betsy said...

Wonderful, wonderful memories! I'm so happy for you, that you get to spend time with your grandchildren often. She looks interested in everything around her. Thanks for sharing.

aimee said...

Definitely! Although she still needs some playtime in the sand I think:) Thanks--the ducks and geese were truly beautiful.
Blessings, Aimee

Thanks Betsy--it truly is a joy to be able to spend time with her! She's pretty easy to keep entertained, although she does have some moments of feeling bored--just like most kids:)

We've been adventuring with our grandsons too! What a darling little girl you have! That's a fun place to see the falls. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

aimee said...

That's awesome! It looked like they and you had loads of fun at the beach...and some nice weather too:)
I agree--I love that viewpoint, although part of me would love to see the falls from down on the river.
Thank you! We think so too:)
Glad you had a great birthday!

Such fun to share the wonders of nature with a little girl. She looks like she's having a lot of fun (just like her grandmother).

Helen said...

What a beautiful day you had, and a beautiful girl.

aimee said...

It really is! She is so much like her dad, our son, it brings up a lot of good old memories---in addition to making neat new ones:)
Have a great day!

We sure did! Thanks for your sweet comment:)
Wishing you a sunny, beautiful day!
