My baby is officially 6!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY ABI-DOO!! So as of yesterday Abi has turned 6 years old! I can't believe how big she is getting and how old I am getting! We had such a fun time for her birthday this year as we had a party for her at this neat little carousel place here in town. We had 12 little kids from Abi's primary class join us. It was very relaxed and enjoyable evening! I was also extremely grateful to my 2 big helpers, Gracie and her friend Quinn. They helped and loved the little ones! Thanks guys!

First Week of School....

The kids made it through their first week of school and were very excited to be in again. Especially our little Abi-doo. She started Kindergarten and couldn't have been more excited. It was a little bittersweet for me but it was fun to see her so excited and ready. All three of them started on different days which was kind of strange but being that I have a middle school-er in a different school(am I really that old?)and a beginner and a 5th grader they all started on different days. Gracie is now a big 5th grader and is in her last year of Elementary school. She is such a lovely young girl and has been a HUGE help to her little sister. Here are just a few pictures of the exciting first couple of days . . .

We love you guys and hope you have a wonderful school year!

School Shopping, Where????

We drove 2 hours to go to Missoula, Montana to do our school shopping today. This is the first time I have ever lived anywhere that does not have very good shopping. Helena has the essentials like Costco, Walmart, Target, Macy's but that is about it. We were all excited to see a mall, Old Navy and T.J. Maxx. We love the sales. Anyway, I can't believe it is that time year again already. Where does the time go?

This is a picture of the kids at the Missoula Mall once we were done with our shopping and getting ready for ice cream.

Father Son Baseball Trip...

Alan and Dale love baseball. In case you didn't read that first statement let me retype it...Alan and Dale LOVE BASEBALL!!! THEY ARE BASEBALL FANATICS! If they are not playing it then they are watching it, if they are not watching it they are listening to it on the radio and sometimes they are doing all three at the same time. They seriously can't get enough of it. It is a very neat bond that they have.

For Dale's birthday, which was in May, we bought him tickets to the Boston Red Sox game (his favorite team) in Seattle. He was also able to invite two friends from school. So in a 24-hour period Alan, Dale, Dale's two friends from school and Alan's friend plus his son drove 10 hours, toured Seattle on a bus for 2 hours before the game, shopped in the baseball store, watch the Red Sox beat the Mariners in a 13 inning game and then drive 2 hours to their hotel, and the next morning drive the rest of the way home. Sound crazy? They had a blast! Dale is hoping he gets that present again next year.

Vacationing with the Sallee's

For the past week we enjoyed fun in the sun! My parents rented a cabin near McCall where we enjoyed boating and fishing. The weather was absolutely perfect and we had a blast playing in the water and enjoying each others company. THANK-YOU MOM AND DAD!! Here is a glimpse of our cabin fun! :)

Summer Fun!

We went to Lagoon with family a couple of weeks ago and had a wonderful time! This is a video clip of Gracie riding the Sky Coaster with her Aunt Kristi and cousin Jay. I can't believe she did it as I thought she took after her mother and I would never try it. Anyway, we were very proud of her and she loved it and would do it again. I must note that her cousin, Jay, is only 5 years old and he loved it as well. He was singing the Superman theme song on the way down and if you watch closely you will see him waiving. What a cute little dare devil!! Thank-you Kristi for taking her.

A Whole Year Has Passed...

I can't believe it has been almost a whole year since I have updated this blog! I figured a year mark was a good place to pick it up again. So we will see how I do. I actually thought about just changing the date as the kids are in the same Spring activities that they were in last year!:O Anyway, we are doing well and I hope to keep you updated more often on what is happening as I love catching up with all my friends on their blogs.

I will post some pictures soon. I have actually forgotten how to do that and it is late so I will have to re-learn how to do this tomorrow.

Thanks for all your wonderful blogs. I love reading them!
