Jude's Big 4

It is amazing, but we do have a couple of Birthday's that come as a single, and Jude is one of the lucky few in our family that has that privilege. Jude is a big 4 now, and even though his Birthday was August 12, we did not forget him. He had a great party with all of his cousins, and a huge cake. We are just a little slow at updating the blog. Sorry Jude, you were not forgotten. Better late than never.

Welcome Brody

Ty and Tori had a little surprise that arrived almost 3 weeks early. Brody Charles George was born on Monday, July 27, 2008, at 5:40AM. weighing in at 6 lbs., 12 oz. Tori's water broke at 3:00AM, and Ty was on a flight in Pendleton, OR. So Tome rushed Tori to the Hospital, and the baby boy was born, Ty got there around 10:00AM, and they decided to name him Brody, or as the whole family calls him, Bro-Ty, because he looks so much like Ty. Congrats to Ty and Tori, now starts the no sleep part of your lives!

And More Birthdays Yet Again.

This week's Birthdays have been posted late, sorry for the delay, but here they are now. Sean kicks off this Birthday week on the 7th, leading the pack as the oldest, somewhere in his mid 30's. Then 3 years ago on the 13th, John got the best Birthday surprise, sharing his day with the Mighty Maile, who will turn 3 this year, and John will be in the home stretch of the 20's. Congrats to all the Birthday Kids!

4th of July at Shasta

For the last 2 years we have spent our 4th of July on the house boat at Shasta. It was great fun this year, and almost everyone was there. We were missing Dusty and his family, but they were off having fun with Emily's family this year. We hope to keep the tradition alive in the coming years.

Grandma's New Summer Toy

Every summer we end up getting a new water toy, this year we got a water tower. It has been fun for all ages (Tyson). Monte, Jude, and Maile had a blast on it Saturday, seeing how fast they could slide down and get back up. And Jared, and Bryce did a timed obstacle coarse, and apparently Bryce needs to work on his victory dance a bit. And on Sunday Ty aired it up to see how it would work for him, but found that it needed to have water in the bottom pool to hold it down, or else you tip over when your on the top of the tower. Now we know. We hope to get a whole summer out of it, which is a streach for our toys for some reason (Tyson).

And Yet Another Birthday Week! Amazing!

It has only been a week since our last Birthday week, and already we have another one! And yet the phenomenon continues. Leading off this week is Tome, with a June 15th Birthday, turning a young 32. Then in the middle of a sister sandwich is Torr on the 19th, who is one year away from being able to rent a car at 24. Last but not least, rounding off the week is Summer, on the 21st, nearing the end of her 20's, turning 28. So congrats, and Happy Birthday!
