Boys Update

Digging up the yard for the sprinkler system

Owen loves to be a big boy and ride the big bikes.

Memorial Day parade with our neighbors Krystina and Finn

On a walk

Grandpa and Grandma are in town!!!


Tristan, Cody, and Wade wanted to camp out on the hill behind our house.  Here is Tristan all ready to go.  They ended up coming back down when it got dark, and Tristan slept on the hammock instead!

Ron came over after preps on Saturday and helped us install the sprinkler system.

Our planned picnic turned into a work party!  

The sod part only took 20 mins.  Thanks to Ben and Jason for helping!!!

Jaela played Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz, so she sang "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" for us!

Joce enjoyed cruising with Wade.

The sun was out for a couple of hours yesterday, so we took full advantage!  Kiddie pool, splash pad, and some time out on the boat!

Tristan's quote today: "Mom!  Look!  My arm is growing fur!"

Owen had great fun picking up candy at the parade.

Another Owen and food video.  "WOW"

Wedding Weekend

Owen feeding Marigold a cracker.

Right after giving Marigold this bite he took his own bite out of the cracker!  EEEWWW!!!  That was the end of Owen feeding the goats!

Having some girls around resulted in Owen dressed like this!

Jason's cousin got married.  Here are the beautiful flower girls!


Uncle Mike and Melissa

Tristan "cutting a rug"

Matthew is describing how Melissa should stuff the cake into his mouth!

Jason's New Trick

Jason has been a little bit jealous of the amount of blogage the boys get.  He wanted to show you all his new trick!  :)  You can teach an old dog new tricks!  (I won't tell you that he can only do this downhill, because that would take away from his great accomplishment!)  :)


Happy Mother's Day

Happy Mother's Day!  Excuse the ending of this video when Jason hits the brakes and I gasp and almost drop the camera!  hahah!  :)


Apple Blossom

We started off the weekend by attending a potluck to say goodbye to our dear friend Bob.  He will be laboring in Hawaii after conventions.  Then, we went to Jason and Sue's for a sleepover party!  :)  They are so hospitable to our family!  We had a blast, even though they beat Jason and I in rook!  (The first time for sure!)  (Maybe we let them win because they were our host and hostess)  (Uh huh)

The next morning we headed downtown Wenatchee for the Apple Blossom Festival.  We met up with Trese, Branson, Kathy, Justin, Pam, and Dakota and walked through some of the fair/craft booths.  Then, we ventured down to watch the parade.

So sweet!
A loaded down Daddy!  Yes, Owen is sleeping with Wade's bum sitting on his face.  :)

Snacks before the parade.

Kettle corn is a parade favorite!

Jason is so kind and patient with our boys!

Pam and Dakota, and Baby Boy!

This lasted until the police motorcycles did their trick riding complete with sirens!

Jason and Justin

Aren't they cute?

Sunday morning the boys were playing so nicely together I just had to get a picture.

I forgot to tell you about Owen's walking!  He started taking steps a few months ago, but unlike the other two boys, was not very interested in really walking.  But on Friday I can say that he actually walked more than he crawled!  And each day since it has been more and more!  I may actually be able to put him in shorts this week!  I've been hesitant to, because I don't want him tearing up his poor knees on the concrete outside.  Also, notice the railing on our deck that Jason finished yesterday!  Yippee!  Now we can let the boys out on the deck without me having a heart attack!  :)  I think Owen is trying to get me with the squeegy I was using to clean the glass.  :)

Owen Feeds Himself

Just because I KNOW that you can't get enough of Baby Owen!  Oh...wait...that's me...anyway...if you're interested, here it is!  I love how he chases that elusive cheerio on the back of his spoon!

Other Pictures From Our Trip

Echo joined us for a tea party!

Tara came down for the evening and we went to Famous Dave's!  Yum!

Having lived in 4 different states and having to make new friends all over again each time, I am so thankful for the friends that I have had forever!!

Owen loved everything about Echo.  He loved to feed her food, put her food into the water dish, spread her food all over the floor, and even eat her food himself! :)

Bender Park

Echo was very tolerant of Owen climbing on her and "petting" her.

Echo enjoyed our morning runs.  She is used to running with Cammy when Cammy comes to visit, so I confused her at first, but by the time I left she was going crazy if she saw me come down the stairs with my tennis shoes in my hand!

Hot tub time!

Riding Echo

4-Wheeler time!
