The day yesterday Connor picking up apples all by hisself

Filed under: Travel — Connor @ 1:51 pm

I picked up apples to share with Inky. Inky is the horse that has a lot of black spots and all white under the black spots. He is a nice horse and he is also a friendly horse. We helped in the garden- grandpa’s garden. I picked some corn too.
I helped grandpa mow the lawn and I turned around the tree all by myself. First time grandpa was doing something else on the lawnmower.

I fed the donkey. I feed Little Girl some apples. Little Girl ran out when I was going to give her some more apples so I feed the apples to the other donkey. Little Girl chased the dog and made Connor jump on the fence. That’s all with the donkey story.connorfeedsdonkey.JPG

There was something pretty nifty – the excavator toy who digs in the sand. We had fun there. I learned how to push the merry-go-round fast with other kids.

I saw really cool animals. There are 6 favorite animals: seeing the salmon swim and the grizzly bear laying down up close and the mountain goat up close and the snowy owl up close and the giraffe and seeing the otters catching the little fish.

Sunday Morning Rocks

Filed under: Playing — Connor @ 8:22 am

I have found some tool rocks. All of them are pretty nifty, because the hook one helps me climb trees and rocks, and the saw one helps me saw down little trees who are getting old but haven’t fallen down yet and it’s also for little trees that have already falled down and it’s also for bushes to get them out the way. The saw one is pretty nifty. The touch one we can touch stuff and hammer stuff. That is really cool nifty. The screwdriver helps me screw and touch stuff too, but mostly for screwing stuff for getting down deep. The hook one is also for pulling up roots. I will have those wherever I go, even when I go down to Idaho. Grams and Grandpa will get to see them if I don’t forget them. Uncle Jonathan can see them in Seattle. Great Grandma Goff will be able to see them. Uncle Andy will be able to see them.

Today’s Story

Filed under: Playing — Connor @ 11:49 pm

I found a lot of berries in the backyard today. Before we went inside I picked berries behind our house. Then we went inside and we played in our room. Dad said clean up our room, but we still played. Then dad said clean up our room, so we did because dad said. Then we came into dad’s office to do the weblog. I told dad about our big adventure which was fun. I did my story, then Rowan did her story, then I did my story, which I’m doing right now, then we’re going to get ready for bed, then we’re going to go to sleep.

Berry picking

Filed under: Playing — Rowan @ 11:44 pm

We picked berries when mom was starting to leaving. We she leaved, we picked some more berries. My dad ate the berries. The nwe picked some more berries that we still can eat, because it tastes still good for us. Then we started back home, because Connor said, “We need to get out of here,” that’s what he said. Then I started to pick more berries, then I went home because Connor said, “We need to get out of here before we get runned over by a car.” We were picking berries across from the house past Darwin’s house, by Bob’s house. We started on our way home because we wanted to, so we did.

And so, we cleaned up our room because dad said so. Then we started on the slide on my bed with my sheet who makes a slide because it’s kind of fun. So, and then, we cleaned up our room, because dad said so, and then we did. So I still have my butterfly because it was out in the living room because I still had it, and that’s all.

A Big Adventure

Filed under: Hiking — Connor @ 11:38 pm

Connor at Medvejie Lake

Yesterday, me and dad went to Whale Park to watch for Marbled Murrelets. Then John and his wife dropped us off at the end of the road. We lifted our bikes over the gate and started biking. We biked to a fish hatchery and found a trail. We had to look in the forest for the trail. We had to cross a river to get to where the trail was. We went on a big fallen tree log and walked across. It was hard because there was another log across with tree branches hanging down that we had to go under. Then we went to the trail and followed the trail to find the canoes. I went in the front and leaded the way to the lake and back from the lake.

We saw the canoes and we went in one. There was a silver canoe (which we went in) and there was a skiff (which is a little boat) and there was a yellow boat that had some holes. Before we went in the canoe, we had a little picnic. We had to paddle across the lake and we got stuck in the grass because there was a big rock under the boat. Then we got unstuck and started on our way again. We got to shore and a little picnic there too, then we looked around.

When we looked around, dad found some bird eggs. Then he called me over and I looked. I thought dad pointed at a bear print, then dad said “Look under there!” then I looked under there and knew what he was talking about, some eggs. The eggs were pretty cool. They were Spotted Sandpiper. I saw the Spotted Sandpiper. It was on the rock behind a tree. Then it flew over to a different place.

Bird Nest

Before I saw the Spotted Sandpiper, I saw some deer prints in the sand. Then I called dad and said, “I saw some deer prints.” Dad said, “Yeah, I see them.”

Then I said, “When is it going to be time to go?” Then dad said said, “Soon.” Then I said, “When is it going to be time to go?” Then dad said said, “Soon.” Then I said, “When is it going to be time to go?” Then dad said said, “Soon.” Then I said, “When is it going to be time to go?” Then dad said said, “Soon.” Then dad said, go over to that little rocky place in the middle of the water and throw rocks in the water. It was too deep, so I said, “It’s too deep.” So dad came over and said it was, so he took me over. I throwed rocks. Then I keeped asking when it was going to be time to go, and dad said “soon.”

Then we paddled back and kind of got stuck again and then we saw an eagle, but I thought it was a human. Then I saw the eagle poop, then it flew away and landed in a tree.

Before, when we were eating food, a hummingbird came close to our face and we could hear it humming.

I helped dad get the canoe put up. Then I asked if I could tie the rope around a tree, but dad said, to just put it under the canoe.

Dad said to remember to try to find the lens cap (because it would be hard for him to find it by himself and I thought probably it had fallen in the river). I looked and looked, but couldn’t find it. I found a dead junco. It was in the forest by the trail. I said, “Dead Bird! Dead Bird!” then dad came over and said it was probably a junco.

We had to cross the logs again to get back.

Dad saw another dead bird on the road before we into the forest. Then we got on our bikes and started on our way home. Then dad took a lot of pictures. Then we finally got home.
