Family Sledding trip

Jan. & Feb. 2010 359

We decided to go up to Mount Spokane on President’s day to go sledding.  We have not had much snow here in Spokane (just a few inches) so we thought it would be fun.  Apparently there had not been much snow up there either.  The hill was wet and sloshy but they all still had fun.  After watching them ring their gloves out, I decided to just be the photographer.

Everyone had fun and got really wet and cold.  Well, everyone was wet but me…

  But I did get some fun pictures.

Tyler’s 10th Birthday

Tyler decided that he wanted to have a sleep over with some friends for his birthday.  Since we already have a house full of boys, we decided that we could only take so many.  So, we just invited a few boys.  Here’s the clan…

A birthday just wouldn’t be complete without the Hunter’s and duct tape.  This was nothin’ compared to last year.  Ryan decided to wrap a box, with in a box, with in a box.  Then Tyler opened to find a zip lock bag filled with Brownie mix.  The gift was inside the brownie mix…

It was a night full of pizza, games, ice cream sundaes, smiles, noise, and tired parents. All in all a fun night.

Then came the family get-together.  His brothers made him birthday cards.  Nathan drew a picture of him and Tyler together with a heart.  And wrote a note that said, “Dear Tyler, I love you and you are awesome.  Love, Nathan”

Tyler got a DS with money he saved, and from all his birthday money.  We snuck his money out of his wallet and surprised him.  He was very excited.
