Stacie and I with our dad. We've been so blessed with an amazing dad who loves us unconditionally and isn't afraid to tell us.
Cousin Jacob and Rina, walking to the creek.
I took my nephew, Elijah, and Rina for a slow ride through the camp.
Rina wanted to clean Aunt Stacie's trailer. Hope her clean streak sticks!
Selfie on Aunt Stacie's bed! Love my nieces, Lily and Jessica, so much.
Whole families were wiped out. It is a super sad story told best in Peg Willis' book called Rise Above.
We also saw this interesting headstone.
My sister and I always wanted to stop and see the mass grave and we finally did it. It was super sobering to be standing there. All the sorrow and heart-ache caused from that flood was just horrible.
If you are ever in Heppner, Oregon, be sure to stop by their county museum and check out the display on this subject.
It was another Heppner Family vacation for the books. It seems like we're getting fewer as the teenagers get older and more busy with jobs and camps, but the younger kids and us adults have so much fun. We look forward to next year's camp out!
