The Moon

Last night when I was driving home I noticed how cool the moon looked and I have been wanting to take pictures like this- lucky for me- I typically always have my tripod with me and my camera. What I didn't have was my zoom the moon looks very time I will have my zoom lens...they turned out ok.

Weekend Work...

Brian has been working on our sprinkler system in his every spare moment. The yard has been done for awhile, but he has been working on the pasture in preparation of the cows. As some of you might know cows are destructive to sprinkler....they rub on them Brian has invented a this little system in hopes that we don't have to fix sprinklers every other week!
Maddy- as usual surveying the job being done.

Shaun and Trooper.

Trooper really liked the camera lens.
The rare Blue Trout (these are a very rare fish, that are sterile) apparently they just pop up every now and then with some weird genetics...very cool looking.
Me, Andrea, and Tricia
Seriously, how could anyone resist this cute little puppy face?

Photo Booth

One of my long time hopes and dreams has finally come true...I bought my self a MAC laptop, she is beautiful and her name is Alli, I will introduce her later...but right now I have to post these SILLY pictures. Last night I was at the Pingetzer's house and we were playing around on the Photo Booth- it is absolutely hilarious what you can do! I was laughing so hard, and little Austin was loving seeing her face on the computer screen. We even made a movie. I just can't get enough of this thing!

Wonderful Weekend on the Water

Brian's college roommate Aaron and his girlfriend Amy came over this weekend for a little boating trip...Aaron shares the same passion for skiing as on Saturday we headed to Crescent Bar for a little evening skiing and then Sunday Brian didn't have to work a full day so we headed to Lake Roosevelt for a BEAUTIFUL day on the water! We took the little weber and BBQ'd burgers! It was a perfect day!
Amy and I wearing our lifejackets as diapers....(Jolene- do you remember this as a kid?) Amy and her sister used to do this all the time too!
Brian and I having a cherry pit spitting contest...I do believe I was the champion!

Wedding Weekend

Thursday- Lyndenn and I headed to Wenatchee to meet Emily to get our toes and nails done. Then we went back to the Silver residence where we made 100 and some caramel apples for the wedding, and posed in our cute cute aprons! Friday- morning we hit the road for Lynden stopping to pick up Emily's flowers from the grocery store (she just ordered flowers and made her own bouquets, she is amazing like that) then we decorated, had rehearsal, and then an excellent dinner at the Bellingham Golf Course! What a fun 2 days already- and we still have the wedding to go!

Us Girls and the Grooms Brother Brenden, Bryan the Groom, and Chris, the brides brother.
