The day before the big day...

There she is....the morning before the big little time flies...tears in my eyes...Sweet dreams Beaner.

What's important in life.

I was still cleaning up from the wedding and someone got out the crayola washable finger paints...for a moment I thought - Holy Crow, we haven't got one thing cleaned up yet and here comes another mess!!! Then I paused, these are the moments that you enjoy in life, these are the ones that happen once and you stop and "smell the roses" Someone else has some good pictures of the girls handprints on each other's backs - maybe they can get posted somewhere.

Oh, how the girls enjoyed each other's company. They stopped for spontaneous hugs here and there and then had some good "2 year old arguments" too.

What is a Grandpa?

I don't really know what it takes to be a good Grandpa but maybe it had something to do with nail polish.

Ready to go!!!

Oh, the influence a child can have on a parent...TJ really wants a Harley so he and Toyke went shopping... It was fun to see them in the store checking out all the bikes... No, I don't think I'll become a Biker Chick...I smile too much. The ones I've seen are very serious.

Rick & Justines Wedding

Samsons Winery is where the big event took place. After weeks of planning and a few days of mad work the place was set.

Rick and Justine after 2 1/2 years decided to tie the knot. July 23rd, 2010

Justine had been working on a quilt for her and Rick, a huge under taking. A lot more than she thought. Her mom Lisette helped out to get the finishing touches done....Turned out better than they expected.

Kala the flower girl came all the way from Eastern Idaho, a town named Rexburg to fulfill her part.....She was so excited to be apart of the wedding.

And here we have Andrew, Ricks son 6 years old and a very important part of the day. Not only do we gain a son in law but we gain a grandson.
Welcome to the family

And the people kept coming from all over the place. Aunts and Uncles. Cousins and niece's and nephews. They all came to join in the festivities.

All the grooms men had tuxes, cowboy hats, canes and aviator sun glasses. Cool idea. And it looked great.

The Brides Maids wore beautiful red dresses.

An out door wedding and the weather could not have been better. Reverend Jack performed the wedding ceremony.

Here Justine and her Dad walk down the isle.....See that smile on Dad's face....It has nothing to do with the wedding....This is the last daughter to be married. You should see him jumping for joy...(ha ha ha) Not really, he is happy for Justine and that she will be happy.

Here Rick and Justine exchange vows and become husband and wife

The Big Kiss....and they are off

The whole wedding party

Time to cut the cake

And then some dancing

and more dancing.

There was lots of food....hmm I wonder why no pictures of the food showed up. We had a BBQ (hamburgers, hot dogs, and lots of salads. A lot of different types of drinks also

The party was great. It could not have happened if it were not for all those who helped. I won't mention names, just be it known that your help was greatly apperciated

Just another beautiful day in the life of Lisette and Toyke

Accidents Happen

Not to long ago we were visiting TJ and his family. While there we went on a few bicycle rides in the neighborhood. Now while we were out on our bicycles riding the street was clear except for this lone truck. Now let me tell you that the truck was minding its own business. Parked on the side of the road. So as we were riding we passed this truck, went around the corner and then came back. Kala was riding and was all over the place, which is normal for a 3 year old. Anyways the closer she came to this truck the more I watched...she's going to more over....she will move now....Oops she didn't move and bang. She was stuck. Thats right she drove into the truck and got stuck just as you see the picture. It was soo funny....But as you can see she was not to happy. So I got off my bike to help get her unstuck. It took a little to get her loose and then checked to make sure there was no damage to her, the bike, and the truck.
The next time we drove by that truck it was parked in the driveway....I guess they saw what had happened
The life and times of a 3 year old.
