Family Outing: Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery

It gets really boring staying at home all the time. I think Joe has cabin fever. Today we went for an outing. We drove out to the Wizard Falls Fish Hatchery. It’s about 15 miles or so west of Sisters, OR. It was really fun!

When we got there we had a picnic. The boys always seem to love picnics. Then we wandered around the fish hatchery. And we fed the fish. The fish went CRAZY! Especially the Rainbow Trout. They would flip out of the water and we’d actually get wet from the spray. Here’s the boys and me feeding them. (I swear, my hands still smell like fish food and I’ve washed them with soap a few times since!)

And the Metolius River was so pretty and clear and blue. I’m sure if Joe felt able he would have been whipping around his fly fishing pole trying to catch some fish in the river.

The sad part of the trip is that we passed through Sisters and I didn’t stop at The Stitchin’ Post. I really wanted to but I don’t have money to spend on fabric right now. But it’s good to know that the drive to Sisters from my house is less than an  hour. Doesn’t seem so far away now.

    I don’t know how you stopped yourself from going to the Stitchin Post! I tell myself the same thing every time we’re up at Black Butte, but can’t help it. Love that store!
    Great Blog by the way…
    It just about killed me to not stop! I keep thinking that this year is the year I’ll venture to the quilt show. I just want someone to go with since I know it’ll bore the hubby & boys. Thanks for stopping by my blog! I like your blog too!

    Sounds like a nice family outing. I love that the fishes’ spray got you wet. Your boys will probably always remember that.
    I hope they remember the fun we try to have. I hope they grow up realizing that you don’t have to spend a lot of money to have fun and that it is fun to hang out with the fam.

    Oh how fun! I swear, it makes me just drool to see that much water all in one place (darned stupid drought in AZ) Since it’s sooo close to the Stitchin Post, you can make more fun summer road trips (I’m sure the boys will just LOVE shopping for fabric…of course, they won’t get as wet)
    Was that a sarcastic “LOVE”? 🙂 Hee hee. I don’t know how you do it in AZ. My friend moved from Portland to Mesa–talk about a drastic change!

    Looks like the boys had fun. I’m sure it was nice (a relief) to get out of the house. That much water in one place could make me jealous, too. Not much here in Vegas, unless you visit the casinos on the strip.
    It was really nice. And I was surprised at how warm it was. I made the boys wear long pants thinking it’d be cold. They were both pretty exhausted and went to bed early-ish. And I’ve always wondered how the casinos get away with all their water use. Hmmm… Money, I bet.
