Graduation Day!!!

Today was a very special day: Jennifer graduated from Linfield-Good Samaritan School of Nursing. It was an overcast day, but thank goodness not too cold. Wasn't a bad day to sit outside for an event like this. We loved sitting with Jennifer's family and being a part of this important day. Jennifer's niece Sofia was so darn good, and all of us were so very proud of Jennifer. She's very special.

Family is best

Mark and I went up to Washington to visit Mom and Dad. We're so friggin busy that we knew we wouldn't have a free weekend, but we could drive up and back in one day. We had a GREAT time, and we even got to have dinner with Phylis and Rodger. They didn't know we were coming, and it was fun to surprise them. And we got to hang out with Duke too: I love the look he has on his face when Mark bends down to talk to him. Can't wait to go back up again. Love my family.

Radom Memories

Thinking about our trip to Amsterdam. It was a trip of a lifetime. Thinking about the buildings, street signs, parks, and oh, everything. But the best part? Getting to share this amazing experience with Cari. That was the best part, hands down.

Go Hawks!

This year Intel has provided employees with free tickets to several Winterhawk games. Love it! They've created a new hockey fan, and I think my friends are hooked as well. Kathy and I made it on the big screen. What a kick!! BUT, I covered Mark's face with my sign.....oh well, he'll forgive me in time.................the Hawks lost, but it was a good series, and I'm ready for next year. Go Hawks!!!

Fun Mom's Day Weekend

What a fun weekend! Mark and I met up with my friend Bonnie and her family to go to the Winterhawks game. The second period was tough, with the Winterhawks getting lots of penalties and at the end of the period the score was 6 to 2, with our team down. BUT they came together in the third period, and even though they lost the score was 7 to 5. Very exciting end to the game. And then I baked up a storm (and notice Cari I used the windmill cookie cutter!!) and took some Mom's Day treats to the House. I met one of the new volunteers, Sandra Jo. We hit it off right away and I think we'll have fun baking in the future. Then Doug and Steven were home and we had pizza and cake. Good times my friends! Happy Mom's Day to my Mom friends.
