Umatilla County Fair and Rodeo!

On Thursday Day ?? of our trip, our camera decided to break. Yes, the Canon we got in May- OF THIS YEAR!!!! What the heck. I'm so mad. So sorry to say there won't be many more pictures. Thursday was the County Fair. It was cute. There were tons of farm animals on display that the local 4H kids were raising. The kids even got to pet a pig. It was so lazy it didn't even move when they opened the pen. Later that night we went to the rodeo. So much fun. Cory also decided to fit in with the locals and grow a handlebar mustache. He shaved it in time for church on Sunday, though. On Friday, we had our last hurrah. We went boating on the Columbia River. It sounded weird to me, too, but it worked great. So great in fact that I-me-got up on the water skiis. The last time I had done that or even tried was when I was 12. It was fun but man, I'm paying for it now. All my muscles are so sore. But it was worth it. Then Friday night Grandpa took us for a hay ride into the back 40. Poor Alyshia had to sing Old MacDonald with the kids the whole time. Then Saturday we drove home. That was pretty much torture as you could only imagine. And thus ends our wonderful 2 week vacation. I really didn't want any of it to end. I'm ready to go again.
