Grand Weekend

This weekend I was so lucky. Linda and her friends went to "Time out for Women" in Portland. I got to go down to pick the boys up and watch them for the weekend. It was so fun. Linda came up on Saturday to pick up the kids a stay a couple of days. I sure miss them and hate that they live all the way in Medford, but I cherish the time they are here. We took a picture to send to Daniel in his email today.
 Today is also missionary letter day so we got to hear from Daniel. Here is a recent picture. You can read his weekly letters on he would love to hear from you.

Halloween is just not the same without little ones. Laura and Braylee did go to a dance at Pacific Ballroom. They decided to dress as their heros, Elphaba and Glinda from Wicked. Here are some pictures (they are so silly);

Boys Club

How in the world do you get 9 boys under the age of five to sit still for a picture? As you can see I have no idea!

Justin and Jennifer

On Friday we were so blessed to gain a new son, Justin McKell, as he married Jennifer in the Seattle Temple. It was a beautiful day with family and friends. I am so grateful to all who helped to make it a perfect day.

Happy Memorial Day

Last night we went out to the National Cemetery in Eagle Point. It was so beautiful to see all of the American flags. We are so grateful to all those who have served our country to protect our freedom.

We were recently in Normandy, France and Maargraten, Netherlands at the American cemeteries it was truly sacred ground. We love this country! God Bless America!!!

Puyallup Daffodil Parade

A great sign of spring in this area is the annual daffodil parade. We decided to go to the Puyallup parade today. It was such a beautiful day and a terrific day for a parade.
It is so great to have Jennifer home from school for the summer and she was very anxious to experience all of the great activities we have here in the Northwest!
After the parade was over, we walked over to the Firehouse deli across the street from Sparks Stadium. Again, it was such a beautiful day that we enjoyed amazing food outside on the patio.
Apparently Sarah thought we were making her eat too much.
Well then it was time to get home and get to work to be ready for our next craft show. The spring fair in Puyallup.
