Life was starting to get a little repetitive so we decided it was time to do something new. We heard that Champoeg State Park was pretty cool because it used to be a small town that got completely washed away by a big flood. There are wood posts that indicate the names of the streets that used to exist but other than that there is not much else that makes you think a town existed here (although we didn't explore the entire park). It seems like a great park for riding your bike and we'll definitely be doing that next time we come. They also have campgrounds and it's only about half an hour south of Portland!

|The boys brought their sketch pads just like dad.|
|Eli drew a map so we wouldn't get lost at the park. |
After watching The Goonies the boys have been pretty obsessed with drawing maps (and looking for treasure).

|The boys thought the sticky weeds were just too funny!|
