An Enormously Fun Day!

We started our Friday out with a jet boat ride on the Willamette river.  If you have never been on one, I promise you won’t be dissapointed.  The kids and I went with a group and just had a blast.  The most fun was when the pilot sped up really fast and then spun us around.  Everyone got wet.  He did it about 6 times on our two hour tour. We saw the OC falls up close, an eagle, a heron, and a bunch of water!

Then we came home for a rest and a bite to eat and headed off to meet Daddy’O for a fun night at the Fun Center down at the waterfront.  Our neighbor’s ex gave us free ride bracelets.  We had a wonderful time.  We usually stay away from places like that, but for free, we had to go.  The kids had a great time.  We got there at 5:30 and didn’t get home until 11:40.   We ate a giant elephant ear, rode some fun rides, saw a spectacular fireworks show and just had plain fun together.

Daddy’O went to work at 12:30 Thur. night, went to his regular job at 6 am Fri., met us in downtown at 5 pm, picked up his car after the fun center and went straight to work again at midnight and got home this morning at 6:30 am. What is that almost 28 hours straight with not sleep. 

I usually try not to think about his crazy schedule, because it makes me sick that he works so hard, but I can’t ignore how hard he works for our family and how much he is involved with the kids’ lives.  Even though he is gone and sleeping a lot, he some how makes time for each of them.
