This picture cracks me up. I was high on the ladder talking to the boys in their tree house and I look over and here is this squirrel laying down on this branch. His eyes are open in this picture, but they were closed earlier and he was sleeping. At first I wondered if it was dead, but then it jumped and opened its eyes. I had never seen a squirrel sleeping in a tree before....too cute!!!!

We took the boys to the arcade in Longbeach. It is quite high tech now. You pay the cashier the amount of money you need for the games and they give you a credit card with that amount on it!!! You swipe the card at every game and it will tell you the balance that is left on your card. Very clever, but I think it may give kids the "credit card" bug a little too soon. All I know is things have changed since I went to the arcade.

The boys have been wanting a basketball hoop for quite awhile and now we have one thanks to Craig's List. I scored it for FREE! Gotta love it. It was in great condition and adjustable too. Obviously Darin took this shot, I tend to stay closer to the ground :-)

Darin and I had our 11th wedding anniversary on August 5th. We decided to take the Mt. Hood Railroad day excursion tour. It was a beautiful day and the scenery was amazing. The train left from Hood River and went to Parkdale. We had an hour layover so we grabbed some lunch at a local cafe and hopped back on the train back to Hood River. We rode in the open-air car on the way back and that was cool. This photo of Darin is so appropriate...note Mt. Hood in the back ground :-) We left Hood River and headed to Mt. Hood and hiked some trails for about 2 hours. It was a fun day
So Luke did turn 6 in June. We had an Incredible Hulk party. I thought it was an odd choice, but when I asked him why he wanted the Hulk he said "because he's really strong, green and really cool! (then it made sense) Trying to get 8 boys ages 6 & 7 to be serious is quite a joke as you can see from the photo. Luke had a great time and that is all that matters.
