Adams Family Reunion: Paulina Lake

While at the Adams Family Reunion in Sunriver, OR we decided to explore the Newberry National Volcanic Monument.  This large caldera last erupted in 640 A.D. leaving behind two different lakes and a large obsidian rock flow.  We spent the day checking out all the interesting things, starting with Paulina Lake. 
 There were several docks built off one of the beaches along Paulina Lake holding lots of different boats.  We all thought it would be the perfect place to let the kids run around a bit before checking out the next location.  It was fun to see everyone jump along the docks, skip rocks in the lake, and enjoy the beautiful weather.  It was the perfect day to be out on the water.
 We are loving our stroller!  It seriously can go anywhere, including a sandy beach and swaying dock.  Mom hates the picture below because she was so nervous about a sleeping Daxton slipping into the water, but the emergency breaks are amazing (and Dallas only stepped away for a quick second to snap a picture :)
 We loved the colorful canoes lining the shore.
 After piling several of us out onto the end of the dock we quickly realized, as water splashed above the surface, that it may not be able to hold all our weight!  Daxton pretty much slept through the whole experience...
 It took less than five minutes for the grandkids to realize how fun it was to jump on the docks and make waves along the lake.  The below pictures are my favorite from the day.  I have the best nieces and nephews!

 Loving the perfect weather and gorgeous scenery!
