Weekend in Madras

We went to visit Grandma and Grandpa in Madras August 26-28.  It was a HOT and SMOKEY weekend, but we still had a great time!

On Saturday morning we took Isaiah to a couple of parks.  One park that we visited was a park that Daddy used to go to when he was a boy.  Isaiah liked checking out the new parks, but the adults (and Isaiah) got hot pretty quickly and we knew the afternoon would be in the sun so we didn't last long.

All these pictures were taken at the second park - a newer park that Travis didn't play at as a kid.

After lunch we headed to the Air Show.  We started out by sitting in the straight sun (where you could see the show really well), but that didn't last long.  We eventually found a nice spot to view most of the the Air Show under an air plane wing.

It was still pretty hot even in the shade.  We drank a LOT of water and ate some ice cream to help with the heat!
Isaiah had fun watching the air planes even though the Air Show was during his nap time.  He did finally fall asleep about 10 minutes before we left the Air Show.
When something really cool was happening we ventured away from the shade to watch.

Grandma and Grandpa bought Isaiah a toy air plane that looks kind of like this cool yellow plane!

Since it was such a warm weekend we tried to go to Eagle Crest to go swimming, but thunder storms closed the pools early. 

Sunday we went to church, had lunch together and visited before heading home again.  We had a great visit and enjoyed our time with Grandma and Grandpa!
