Hello Family & Friends. Yes, we are still here...occasionally! This year has flown by and left little time to blog. Last fall ('08) I had the crazy idea to go back to school and finish up. This is my excellent excuse for being a poor blogger! After completing my coursework I was required to complete a business internship. I started this summer working at our local hospital in the administration office. Since then, I was offered a permanant position there and work 1 day a week in the office and more hours from home when I can. The rest of the time I get to be a stay at home Mom.

We recently got our family pictures done. Here are a few of them.

Playing Catch-up

Kayd and Rhett's new found talent.

The boys began taking piano lessons in January and were ready to play in the piano recital by March. They are moving along so quickly. We are proud of them. Kayd actually decided to sign up for his school's talent show all by himself.

This is the newest addition to your family. She has no name as of yet.

A cold easter morning for pictures...

4 Fishes...

We took off on a whim last Saturday to a Reservoir a few miles from town.
As you can see by the smiles the kids had a blast and the parents did too.
Sunday Dinner was, what else but, smelly fish!!!...on the barbeque thankfully!

Oregon Coast

Kirsten and I went on a trip in celebration of her taking the Bar and starting her new job in Las Vegas.

We walked more than a few beaches. Ate numerous bowls of clam chowder and fresh fish

We climbed many a lighthouse.

Even went deep sea fishing and caught our limit (without any male supervision- except for the captain)

It was cold even in August!!! Luckily for us, some very stylish sweatshirts were on sale at the local Walmart!!!

Lost Lake is Found!!!

We were finally able to get up to the mountains last week for a camp out.

Since we are new to the area we took a chance packing up the whole family (Scooter and Gin included) and drove until Lost Lake was became Found Lake(so the kids say).

We found a beautiful meadow to set up camp just a little ways from the creek.

We had a great time fishing and wading in the COLD water

Our second morning there we woke up to rain! It soon cleared up and we were able to go for a ride up the mountain for a little exploring.

The sky soon grew dark again so we got cozy around the fire and roasted marshmellows again!
Eventually the rain started again and we ended up the tent. It drenched us!! The our tent leaked and soaked our bedding. We packed up and came home a day early. Oh well, the time we had was great!

July Memories

Here our kids; Kayd, Rhett, and Shae show off the fruits of their labor...Our neighbor is paying them for every gopher they catch. They were so excited to find their traps full the first day. Of course, Shaun wasn't around to give a lesson in tail and trap removal, so guess who got to give that one!!!
This was at the beginning of Weiser's 4th of July Parade. I've seriously seen longer parades in Tropic!
Emri was amazed by the fireworks. She oohed and ahhed at everyone.
She also discovered the reason olives have a hole in them!
Shae is becoming quite the tomboy all of a sudden. She has taken up shooting BB guns, gopher trapping, bug squishing, etc. etc.

This is how we are all feeling after running and playing so hard. Too bad no one else has a driver's license!!!
