Silver Creek Falls: Silverton, OR

After settling in North Carolina, we regretted never taking our children to Silver Creek Falls. One of those "I can't believe we never took them!!" moments.  Sean and I both have many memories growing up exploring the waterfalls and nature trails.

So, last weekend we took advantage of the beautiful weather and headed out. We stopped in Silverton for ice cream and even caught the "tail end" of a pet parade. :-)

There are about seven waterfalls in all, but this trip we decided to explore just one.
The kids had no complaint.
They loved every minute.
Before we even got the waterfall Jason was impressed with a water drain.. lol.
(He reminded me of the little kid on the Family Circus cartoon.. with the arrows jumping from place to place... That little boy was everywhere making his own trails!!)

Deep calls to deep 

    in the roar of your waterfalls;

all your waves and breakers

    have swept over me.

By day the Lord directs his love, 

    at night his song is with me—

    a prayer to the God of my life.

Psalm 42:7-8

Hope you had a wonderful memorial day weekend!
