Congratulations Wayne & Jaylin

Wayne & Jaylin's Wedding

We went to Wayne & Jaylin's Wedding last Saturday in Astoria. It was a nice wedding and it was great to see friends that we haven't seen in quite some time.

We wish Wayne and Jaylin a lifetime of love and happiness.

Kacey Lee

Kelle and Kacey came over for dinner the other night. I can't believe how grown up Kacey is. She is turning into such an adorable little girl. We have really enjoyed being watching her grow up. Kelle brought all of the fixings so that Kacey could "create" her own pizza masterpiece. And what a masterpiece is was! After dinner we all sat around while Kacey entertained us with her funny, wild personality. Our face and stomachs hurt from laughing so hard at this little sweetie!

Here are a couple more pictures of our little sweetie....Miss Kacey Lee

Anniversary Cruise 2007
(Just a little trip down memory lane)

I came across this picture of our cruise that we took about a year and a half ago. This is John and Sabrena. They are from Southern California and we met them when we took our cruise to Mexico in 2006. So, when Bill and I took our cruise in 2007 we had to make sure that John and Sabrena could be there with us to help us celebrate. They are such amazing people! We just love them to pieces! They have become our cruising buddies. We can't wait for the next time that we get to hang out with this wonderful couple! Good times!

Cheers to you John & Sabrena. Thanks for being our friends!

Happy Anniversary Aunt Darline & Uncle Ray!

Eureka Road Trip 2008
We had the best weekend! We took a road trip back to Eureka, California where I was born and raised until I was 10 years old. My Aunt Darline and Uncle Ray celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary! Taylor, Matthew & Kaela were able to go down there with us. This picture was taken right after brunch before we left to drive home.

It has started to become a tradition that when our family takes road trips, one person will yell out "CALL BOX!!" and then the rest of the people in the car follow up with "Call Box". I really wish I knew how this started or the fascination with this simple yet fun activity, but I just don't have much of an explanation for it.

Taya & Kaela = BFF

During our first night in Eureka, we all went out to dinner at a great little Italian place called "Roy's Club". The food was excellent and we had a great time!

After dinner, we spent some time in the pool and the hot tub. I just love this picture of Aunt Stacy with her boys! Matthew & Taylor

The boys got all dressed up for the anniversary party! Taylor, your shirt was simply amazing! Both of you boys are such babe magnets!

We went to Arrington Apples for the anniversary party. It was such a beautiful apple orchard with tons of flowers everywhere. Aunt Darline & Uncle Ray renewed their vows and it was very sweet! They are such an inspiration to remind us all that marriage is a special gift!

After the ceremony, we all sat here and had a wonderful buffet lunch with Salmon, Ravioli, Salads, Fruits, etc...

Then the dancing started. Uncle Ray gave Kaela a good dance lesson and did a couple of laps around the dance floor with her. Good job Kaela....You are a natural!

On the wayback home, we took our time and stopped at the trees of mystery for a couple of pictures. Here is Paul Bunyun and "Babe" the Blue Ox. There was this man inside of Paul Bunyun that was talking to everyone. It was so cool!

There are not enough words to describe what is going on in this next photo....

Actually 2 words come to mind....


Oh me!
