“To you who are parents, I say, show love to your children. You know you love them, but make certain they know it as well. They are so precious. Let them know. Call upon our Heavenly Father for help as you care for their needs each day and as you deal with the challenges which inevitably come with parenthood. You need more than your own wisdom in rearing them.”
Thomas S. Monson

The Columbia River

Wednesday we headed out to the Columbia River. The kids got their suits on and had a great time. I was able to relax and read since I wasn't worried about sneaker waves and undertoes! While I read and the kids played Richard wandered up the shore to where a bunch of trucks were parked. The men were fishing and crabbing and Richard learned a lot from them that we can hopefully use someday when we go back to shore fish!

The kids always collect feathers and want to bring them home. I talked them into making some artwork for the birds to enjoy and took this photo for their scrapbooks. Nature art!!
