It is finally here!

I LOVE vacations.  I love everything about them.....except getting ready for them...then putting everything away from them after it is done.  But the part in the middle....I LOVE!  It has been too long since we went on a nice vacation.  I am happy to have people taking care of our beloved pets while we are gone.  I am thankful that Dave gets a MUCH needed rest and diversion from the recent events at our house.  This is gonna be a great event...I can just feel it.

5 New Posts

I have been such a blogging slacker the last few months.  There is no big reason for this slump like breaking anything, working three jobs or anything near that exciting....the only thing that keeps me from writing is LIFE!  So, please read all five posts and enjoy the pictures.  They are fun to look at.  Here's to hoping I keep up the blogging with way more regularity. 

A New Grandson

 Isn't he perfect?

Just by coincidence, they were both wearing the same colored shirts.  I love this picture

Introducing Gabriel.  Heather had her precious new baby on June 6th.  He is a sweet boy who is very cuddly and sweet.  I love holding him and just being near him.  He is definitely a keeper.  

Sasha's First Date

 Dave and Sasha

Sasha turned the magical age of 16 on the 7th of June, and with that much anticipated birthday, comes DATING. She is now officially old enough to go on group dates. As is the tradition in our family, we as a parent, take our child out.  It is kinda a right of passage thing and very fun too.  They went to Anthony's Home Port at Pt. Defiance.  They had a great time and enjoyed really great seafood.  Here's to many more fun dates.  ( You will never forget this Sasha ).

Celebrating Sarah's birthday

 Sisters!  Sarah and Heather (who delivered Gabriel two days later)

 Dave and Heather

 Gee, I wonder who will have their baby first?

L to R:  Heather, Ava, Sarah, Sasha, and Jayson

We went out to dinner to celebrate Sarah's 22nd birthday.  We went to Jimmy Mac's Roadhouse for dinner.  It it the place that gives you a bowl of peanuts when you walk in, then throw the shells right on the floor.  It was very good. We had a great time with everyone.  Heather sure was ready to have that baby.  She looked beautiful in her very pregnant belly.  


Sasha Makes Meatloaf

Sasha made the most delicious dinner a while back when we had company.  I am so proud of her for her nummy cooking skills and her desire to learn.  This will definitely be a skill that will be used every single day in her adult life.  She has even taught me a thing or two.  Go Sasha...I will eat your cooking ANYTIME!

Cousin's Pete and Debbie

L to R: Pete, Sasha, Debbie, Jayson

More crazy people

On May 13th, Pete and Debbie came over from Coeur d' Alene for a nice visit.  They came just to spend time with us.  We had a delicious meatloaf dinner on Friday night, then on Saturday we went to the Tacoma Glass Museum, then off to Seattle so we could tour the Underground Seattle Tour.  Unfortunately, they had to go home on Sunday as they had to be at work the next day.  We loved spending time with them and can't wait to see them again.
