Fall Is In The Air

We have been really busy in the yard actually Kipp was busy in our yard. Kipp, Haruka and Max came to visit and attend Kipp's grade school buddies wedding. But we got a lot of work out of him while he was here. He did most of the great grape stake fence around our raised bed garden and the posts for the beehive fence.

Summer What Summer!!??

Well I don't know about anybody else but over here in the northwest we were robbed of our summer. I don't know who took it but we didn't get it. We are all hoping for an Indian Summer, I hope I hope I hope! We did have a full summer season though. As you can see. Now it's time to think of our winter projects. I hope mine is painting inside. This time the walls. It really is time it has been probably 7 years or more. Then get new carpet, which I have been waiting for a long time. Love you all. Give me a comment to let me know how your are.

A Day with the Honey Bees

So we harvested about 30 pounds of honey this weekend. Then our little weak hive was attacked you yellow jackets. This is Judd helping to defend the hive.

The Finished Product

So here we are with the house all but done...the back deck needs to be painted and then we are completely done. Notice the porch's so great I love it.

Rock N Roll Marathon Pic

This was sooooo much fun, mind you it was still running and tough but sooo much fun. The music, the family, the weather, and the joy of being able to do it!!!!
We might just do it again!!!! Who knows, but right now I think 10K's sound pretty good.

Mt. Adams...What was I thinking?

So at church on Sunday Lydia listened to the speaker talk about his hike on Mt. Adams and said "I want to do that" so she involved the whole family. Kipp flew out from South Carolina, and we headed for the mountain. Bracan's brother-in-law came with us also. The snow level was so low that it was 2 miles just to the trail head, then another 3 -4 miles to lunch counter, our base camp. We were rained on the entire day, thus soaked, just pass the tree line we had lightening not good when you have metal snowshoes, ski poles, and ice picks in your backpack. So we headed down for cover. Blizzard during the night, leaving 4 inches of snow. No reason to head up cuz you won't see anything anyway. All were sad, Aaron and Kipp decided to have some fun anyway and went sledding in the morning on their sleeping pads. It was a miserable/good time. Pictures coming later.

A little tourism before the big race.

Zion's National Park is a wonder to behold and the picture don't show the grandness of it at all.

Checking out the Finish Line

So looking forward to 2.4 mile swim, 112 mile bike ride, 26.2 marthon run and look they are both smiling.

The Day Before the Race.

Yard Art and May the Force Be In the Yard

Yes I found the yard art I wanted and so did my sister Susan. We had a great time Saturday. This one is in the Japanese Garden.

Now this one is thought of in two different ways, First is that my sister thinks of him as St. Francis and the rest of us think his is Obi-won. If my sister looks at my blog I'm dead meat.

I went igloo camping!!!!!

This is the igloo that Aaron and I built. It kept us nice and cosy.
The frozen lake we camped by soooo beautiful.
Aaron hard at work. He would cut the blocks and hand them to me to set down around our area to harden up.
One of the many switchbacks to get to the top of the mountain. Let me tell you they were steep, coming down I just sat down and slide on my bum!!!
Yes that's right. One of our young women wanted to go igloo camping so she set up the training meetings and we went last weekend. Up at Stevens Pass. It was beautiful. I had a great time. Aaron was my buddy. He did all the hard work and I was his grunt. But it still was great.

Christmas 2009

Always so great when we can take a family picture. We did this on our own. Meaning we didn't get help we had my sister Susan take the picture with 3 cameras we had a better chance of getting a good one.
