A couple of weeks ago the Schenks decided to bless the inland northwest with their presence and I am finally getting around to posting a few picture of all the misadventures we had with them. It is so rare to have friends you really connect with and can start back up right where you left off.
First things first, which means getting the motorcycle out and showing off. Yes, I realize now that I had my 3 year old out on the bike riding without a helmet and that is totally irresponsible, but man can he ride.
The weather was very mild when they were here, but we got over to Coeur d'Alene all the same and got a chance to hike Tubbs Hill.

And finally, the picture you end up with when you ask a kid to take your picture.
Nothing like gathering around right before bed and listening to a old man spin a wild yarn where all of the kids ge to add aspects to the story. This man has a way of piling the "stories" up higher than is widely acceptable....he must be Canadian.
Thee kids were mesmerized.
Ethan and I had a chance to get dropped off at the top of a high hill and then ride all of the way down. Nice view from the top and a pretty fast ride down.
Notice that Kevin is in proper riding attire as well. There was only one minor fence and bike incident all weekend.
The crew exploring the Downtown of Spokane...nothing short of a fabulous visit. We had way more fun than I can talk about here and took far too many pictures. We are so glad they took time to visit the NW and see what our lives are like up here.
Sierra was dedicated the other week as well and here she is in her mothers baptismal outfit. Such a cutie.
Matthew loves to type on a old computer and "do his homework". I cant remember a time when I liked homework, but I am sure it is a phase all kids go through. I am confident he will grow out of this love of school, but I hope not.
