Fishing with Papa

Ewan and Sejena came to visit with us for the weekend and Ewan and Papa went fishing. We have a great kids pond where you have be under 14 to fish there. Too bad there were not any little fish to be caught and they had to settle for this big rainbow trout. Ewan caught it all by himself and Papa only had to help him get it up from the shore. He is going to be a great fisherman just like His Papa. Way to go Ewan.

Is it Spring Yet?

This morning as I was out with Benny on his way to work I see bank reader. It read, Are you ready for this 22 DEGREES I know I know those of you still in Idaho think that IS spring weather but for here in sunny Walla Walla That is winter time stuff. Now I know that winter still has a week or so to hang on to our hearts with it's icy grip but I can't help but long for spring to come and blow way all this cold. If we have to have Daylight savings time it should be spring. I love seeing the crocus and the tulips bloom and am so excited as My hollyhocks are returning from last year and perhaps they will bloom this year. SO Once again I plead with the mighty heavens to bring on the spring weather. And if that does not work I will relish the snow in the mountains and enjoy one more mug of that nectar of winter HOT TANG !
This is Derek at the Bonfire last week up at our friends who live up in the mountains

What Joy our Family is for us. We love it when all our kids come home and bring their sweet children home.
We had such a great time with Isaac and Dylan's birthday that we are going to do it again in august for Ewan and Gary. And what could possibly be more fun than a giant truck party. With tonkas everywhere including the cake we were sure to construct a great time.

Most of you know that I love chocolate. It was evident that the chocolate loving gene was passed on to yet another generation with Dylan digging into his first birthday cake.

Isaac was no less appreciative but he was a lot cleaner. The blessing of being 2 I guess. But it was a great party and everyone got to take home a little something to remember to toot your own horn every now and then.

I love a great Birthday party :D
