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! :)
