Darin and his brother Dan went on Thursday/Friday to climb Mt. Shasta. They came close to making the summit, but the 60 mile an hour winds made them turn back. They were bummed, but that is how it goes sometimes. Here are some great pics of the mountain.
The morning started out really cold so Grandma shared her coffee with Luke....this boy LOVES coffee just like his dad!
This year I coordinated a field trip for my homeschool group. It was called the Art and Science of Baseball School Days. They had a great curriculum you could go over with the kids before the actual event. This was the first time Martin and Luke had ever been to PGE Park and their first Portland Beavers Game. My family went to lots of Beavers games when I was growing up....it brought back memories for me. It was a great day riding the MAX, watching the Beavers WIN, being with friends and getting the souvenirs Grandma bought for the boys.
On May 17th our India team put together a Dessert & Silent Auction Fundraiser. It was a GREAT night!! People had a fun time with music, food, desserts and awesome items up for auction. Both of our goals of having our guests have a fun time and raising support for the team were accomplished. Check out the link for more pics of the evening at http://flickr.com/photos/indiateam2008

Our boys enjoy flying through the air as you can see from these photos. Martin loves to see how far he can jump off of a swing. I remember doing this back in the day. The below photos were taken by Darin when I was gone for an evening. That would be Martin launching his brother up in the air....something Darin has done with the boys for years. Martin is now big enough to launch Luke so the fun begins.
My boys decided to surprise me with a fancy lunch. The menu was turkey pastrami sandwiches with pickles and cheese, chips, grapes, and Coke for the beverage. They decided to make it really fancy by using the China plates and fancy glasses. It was a great surprise and made me feel very loved. I know someday that my boys will make their future wife very happy!
P.S. They even cleaned up their mess in the kitchen....it doesn't get any better than that :-)
