First day of school pictures.

Aurelia started a few days after Isabel but she was still so excited. She has made new friends and though she says no, is learning every day.

Isabel on her first day. She was so excited to get back to school and back to her friends. And she LOVES her new teacher, which is always good.

The kids went today to get their school haircuts.

Lincoln went with the traditional fade. I think he likes it because the clippers tickle.

Aurelia likes the side sweep with layers, very classy.

Isabel decided to go fun and funky with the short hair.
We spent Labor Day weekend in Montana having a mini family reunion.

Seth, Isabel and Aubrey. Seth is actually my cousin but he's about the age of the girls.

Tiffany sitting pretty, she's Seth's sister. They are down visiting Gram from Anchorage.

Gram and Link. Yes he's in pink but when it is freezing and your coat is missing you'll do just about anything.

My Aunt Dallas, she's the inspiration for my keen fashion sense.

My cousin Blythe found out about the picture and demanded that I remove it so I did. Darn her.

Seth again playing Gandelf.

The girls crossing the river.

Short hair seems to be the thing to do in our family. Beth, Gram, Mom and Bonnie.

Lincoln enjoying the little kids merry go round.

A random, out of order picture of Patrick and I. He shaved his hair off the day before he went back to Iraq.
Cody, Ashley, Lauralei and Beth all decided to come over for a visit. It was so awesome to see them but our visit was cut short by Patrick coming home. But we got to see them later.

The kiddos chillin on the couch.

Ashely and Lauralei playing in the toy bucket.

Sweet little girl.
While Patrick was home we started Geocaching. It's a lot of fun and the kids LOVE it.

Our fearless leader charting our course.


Happy geocachers.

Pit stop by a river.

Another geocaching day, this is break time.

Just a bit of dirt in the PB&J.

Buddy the treasure hunter.

Looking for our next score.

Scouting the area.

A look out over the hills/mountains up Colockum Rd.

We went to a Yakima Bears game while Patrick was home. It was fun and cheap and had awesome leg room. Too bad a little boy I know would have rather been just about anywhere else.

The field.

Getting all pumped up for the game.
Family time in Seattle.

Enjoying the hot tub.

Cody and I were a little too chilly to get in.

Lauralei lounging in the hot tub. Don't worry, it was more like a warm tub.

Choosing the warm tub over the cold heated pool was a majority decision.

Isabel was the only brave one, she liked the pool better.

Our trip to the zoo seems to be lacking in pictures, but we still had a great time.

Hungry Caterpillars.

Monkeys looking at a monkey.
Patrick and the Fam.
Young men.
Aurelia loving Daddy.

Isabel and Daddy cheesing for the picture.
