Nickleback 2009

We got to go to the Nickleback concert a the Gorge again this year! We went for the first time in 2007 and had so much fun we did it again. Playing with Nicleback was Hinder, Papa Roach and Saving Abel. We ran into our friends Annie & Devin from Prosser - they ended up sitting by us. And we also saw some of our friends (Mary & Ron) from when we lived in Othello!
The Gorge is a great place to have a concert - the view is breath taking and the natural amphitheater gives it such a great sound.
Here is the sun setting: The Hinder stage
Monte man

Our friends - the Petty's - their sign says "We miss you Dale!". It was taken for Dale while he was at boot camp in Texas.

first day of school!

School started early this year for Prosser - August 25! This year Natalie is in Mrs. Rose's 4th grade class, Kaylee is in 7th grade and Colten is in Mrs. Fortune's 1st grade class. Andrew was not yet awake that morning, so he is not pictured :) but he is in Pre-school at Kiddie Korner with Liz Elliot as his teacher.

Andrew's 5th Birthday

It's hard for me to believe that my baby is 5!! Where did all that time go? Next year he will go to kindergarten .. I'm not really sure how I'm going to handle that day! Blowin' out the candles!
This is a bug fruit basket that Monte carved for him - he saw it in a magazine and really wanted one.

He also wanted these baseball cupcakes - I think they turned out pretty good.

Andrew got 2 pairs of goggles for his birthday (they came as a 2 pack) so he shared with Colten and they had a rockin' time with them in the tub!

Natalie's Birthday

Natalie's 9th Birthday was a lot of fun this year. It fell on a Monday and since it was in the summer we surprised her by picking up her 2 best friends (Genevieve H & Eliza B) for a sleepover! We also had our friends the Giles' over and some cousins too. She chose Mud Pie for her "cake" Sooo yummy!!
Here she is with her new Webkinz pet - a monkey. she named him Funky Monkey. and a super cute picture with Kali & Jacob:
