Pictures and Good Times!

8-25-10 I just keep thinking of other pictures to share! I loved this one of Jade on the kneeboard. I loved that there was a reflection of him in the water. So cool!

8-25-10 Here are all girls up on the tube. Melina and Mariah spent most of the time on it. They were whipped and pulled and dumped off of that tube all day long. I'm surprised they were alive at the end! I thought their arms would have been super sore!!! Olline didn't like to go as fast, so she would take turns. SUPER CUTE. Especially with Olline's goggles on. See Schweitzer Mt. to the left?

8-24-10 Here our lovely Statue of Liberty shot! Beautiful day!

8-25-10 Father and Son at the Bonner County fair! They finally sat down together and I was able to get a good shot. I think they both had a wonderful time! I could see their eyes twinkle being with each other. These are precious times and we are so thankful we get to enjoy them!

Thank you dad (Jerry) for the great man that you are! You mean so much to us and we appreciate you coming. Meme Sugar, thank you for letting dad come. We sure wish that you could have been here, but know that you were here in our hearts and we appreciate you and all you do for the whole family! You both are such blessings to us!

8-25-10 Here is Olline feeding our favorite goats! What fun the fair can be...just the simple things make us happy. If we had land, I think we would have goats!

8-25-10 We thought that this guy was so unique. We love his spots!!! He was very sweet too!

8-25-10 They just look at you so sweetly. I loved the goats. There were so many. Plus, they didn't smell so bad like the piggy's! lol!

8-25-10 Mariah did it!!!! After Melina and I gave it a try, Mariah did. She wasn't sure if she would get up this year, but she DID! I hope she enjoyed it. Girls said it hurt their backs...huh? It is my favorite thing to do! Isn't Mariah beautiful here?

8-25-10 I loved this shot of Mariah watching Melina on the kneeboard. They are special cousins and they both love deep. God is great!

8-25-10 Here is beautiful Mariah. There were so many times that I wanted to kidnap her. I know her family would not appreciate that. But it is so tempting!!! I just love her so much.

8-24-10 I took all the girls to the city beach on Tuesday. The girls made a sand couch and I had them sit in it so I could take their photo. I think this is so beautiful. They are such great girls.

8-25-10 Here is the Boppa and Olline. Getting ready for a big day on the boat. Here we just started our day on the lake! Hey dad...we love your goatee!!!!

8-24-10 Olline playing in the sand. She is so cute. She is so content and patient. I know she would have loved to play with her big cousin and sister, but she knows to give them time alone. She is a sweet soul! So proud of her.

8-24-10 I just love this picture.

8-24-10 Mariah and Melina having girl time! CUTE!

8-24-10 Looks like Olline is getting ready for the big swim. She is so focused. She was just getting ready to splash in the lake. Pretty colors in this one. Oh, look carefully, Mariah and Melina are on the log way behind Olline. See?

8-24-10 STOP GROWING UP PLEASE!!!!! That is all I have to say! PLEASE??

8-24-10 Jade at the county fair in the cow area. I love him with the green trees. I love this man. He is my favorite. He makes me so happy. I am so thankful he is in my life!!!!!! He still makes my heart pitter patter!

8-24-10 I like to take this photo every year at the fair. Jade is always thinking of his hunting season starting next month. So this elk...is on his mind! I am praying that he and his hunting partner will get their elk this year! Pray with me...need the meat.

8-24-10 I have a ton of these cool photos. I thought I would share this one again. I also have it on my facebook account. I love doing these action shots. Olline would do it all by herself. Mariah and Melina would do it together. Then they would all jump! So cool with the statue right there. So much fun. I am impressed with Olline, it usually takes her longer to be the dare devil!

8-23-10 Ok, here we are on our 13th anniversary! Aren't we cute? I just love this photo. The waitress took it. We had dinner at 41 South. A nice restaurant across the long bridge. We had the best view. Well, it's hard not to get a good view from this place. All you see is this fantastic Pend Oreille Lake! I love where we live. It is so beautiful! I also love this man! He is so good to his family and to me! I pray that we will be blessed for MANY MORE years. I can't imagine my life without him. Thank you Lord for this wonderful man!

Ok...I think that is it. I believe I took over 400 or so photos while we had our company. So I tried to choose some good ones to share.

God Bless!

8-19-10 Melina built a sand moat! Cute!

We had a great afternoon at the beach. It was nice to visit with my friend Sarah and her kids. I always enjoy my time with them. It was hot at the beach and I probably should have gone in, but I decided to sweat like an idiot! I think I burnt my back just a little. Girls had a great time!

God Bless.

Sandpoint Festival August15th

8-15-10 Sandpoint Festival finale fireworks. I got just a few good shots. However, the fireworks were not as good as some I've seen. So one would go, then pause, the another one would go and so on. I am not complaining...I love fireworks and the orchestra was fantastic playing with the fireworks! It was my first try with my new camera to shoot these. I think I did ok...

8-15-10 Cuties...they had a good time. It is always nice to go out as a family and enjoy something as a whole!

8-15-10 Here is the tent that the musicians play under. The field is filled with people. We all sit on the grass or we rent short white lawn chairs. Some people bring their own. It is just a fantastic time. You can bring your own drinks, dinner, or whatever you wish. They also have different vendors to choose from to eat and drink! Fun!

8-15-10 This is where we sat. Off to the right side of the tent. It was a good spot. Can you see the girls and Jade?

8-15-10 Here is Olline in her own world. I believe she was picking grass. I just love her face here.

God Bless

8-16-10 Olline on a huckleberry pickin' day!
8-16-10 Melina also picking the huckleberries! We had a great day. It was hot and the girls did get a little grumpy! However it ended great and we got a lot of berries!!!! Jade is the pickin' king!

8-16-10 After we picked the berries, we stopped a spot for pictures! Beautiful!

8-16-10 We then went out on the lake and dad was ready to dive in! Yeah!
8-16-10 Dad was showing the girls that he could touch the bottom!!

8-16-10 There goes Melina!

8-16-10 Both girls jumping in!

8-16-10 Here's Olline! Go baby Go!

8-17-10 We are getting ready to go to Silverwood!

8-18-10 We live here! Can you believe it? It is so beautiful. Thank you Lord!

8-18-10 One sad thing is...when we got back last night we saw that a nice rope was out hooked on the rocks across from our dock. Well, dad asked Melina to go get it. So she crossed over and got a bit wet. When she went to pick it up she realized that it was an anchor! Guess what? It was our anchor! Jade knew right away when she said it was an anchor, that it was our anchor! Someone, took it out of our boat and threw it over there! Who was touching our boat? What a mean thing to do. Jade was so upset. With Melinas help, we got it back. I just hope no one else touches our boat! Creepy!
I have so many photos I wish I could post. It just takes so long. I am enjoying my new camera. I still have lots to learn. I notice some of my focusing skills need to be worked on. Going to the beach now to meet a friend. There is a nice breeze out there so it should be nice. God Bless you all!
ps...I forgot to show you our Sandpoint music festival pictures. I will have to do that another time! Maybe tonight.

It's a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

8-14-10 Pretty Melina

8-14-10 What do you do with 50 lbs. of bread flour????
8-14-10 You Food Saver it in the seal bags!!!!! Oh, yeah baby! That is what you do. Believe it or not...I do use 50lbs. of bread flour. Hopefully it will last me awhile...but we make our own bread, so this was a great deal at Costco!!!

8-14-10 Beautiful purple flower

8-14-10 Ol' Chowder lookin' good

Well, we are about to leave and get a seat to the Sandpoint festival finale! The Spokane Symphony will be playing and I believe the theme is going to be "russia". Should make for a great show!
I hope to test my new camera out and "hope" to take a few good photos! Wish me luck. I am still learning so much.
God bless all of you!

ps...I do have so many more photos I wish I had time to share...but I have to go. Maybe later.
