Big Kids Overnight.
Levi and I dressed alike, not planned!
Teaching Lulu to do Cross-stitch.
Building towers with colorful, plastic cups
and watching them fall.
Levi got called on the carpet for bugging his sister and
jumping on the couch!
Do you think he took me seriously?
Tom and me with five of our grandchildren
We all went together for a day trip
to Baker City, Oregon.
It's about a two hour drive, north of Boise.
We went to see the
National Historic Oregon Trail
It's a hands-on museum and the kids
had so much fun. They even got to play inside a
wagon and dressed up as pioneers.
What a great museum!
Anything you wanted to know
about the Oregon Trail, you can learn there!
Did you know that the wagons weren't pulled by horses?
They used Oxen because the Oxen will eat anything!
Oh look, it's a Pioneer family...
NO wait a minute!!
They didn't wear tennis shoes back then!
Or did they?
Valentine's Day Party
Every Tuesday, we have the Kimmy's family
over to our home, for a dinner.
Just so happened, Valentine's Day landed on
Kimmy made us a sugar free, fat free
dessert, that was so yummy!
The day after the party, Tom and I headed over to Seattle.
We thought it was going to be smooth sailing,
because of all the snow that melted.
Our 8.5 hour drive, took 10 hours
because of fog, black ice and snow.
But well worth it !
Look at how big Trey and Scarlett are getting!
(Our son, Todd and Stephanie's children)
Trey is four and Scarlett is one.
We were so busy.
First off were swim lessons!
Trey is like a fish in water.
Then we celebrated Tom's 65th birthday.
The kids were amazed at Tom's singing ability,
or scared !
First time bowling for Trey
and he beat me!
The kids were amazed at how the ball
just shoots back up to the rack!
And of course we snuggled and laughed a lot.
Miss you guys!
When you visit Seattle on a beautiful day, there is
nothing like a ferry boat ride.
We rode a ferry to visit my
ninety one year old, Aunt Bobbie.
I don't think Tom even noticed he was the only
man in the Tea Room that day.
What a guy! I'm blessed!
The ride back was just as beautiful!
my old hometown!
