Denali National Park and Matthew's 6th Bday

Once a year in September there is a lottery to drive through Denali National Park. If you don't have this lottery pass you have to ride in school buses in order to see Denali. Our dear friends, the Dekays, were so generous and gave us one of their lottery passes. I hear they are hard to get so we were very fortunate. We had amazing weather, beautiful views of Denali, a nice, free cabin to stay in, good friends, and good wildlife viewing. This was by far my best Alaska experience.

Matthew lost his third tooth on his birthday just as he did last year

Matthew and Drew had so much fun with their friends Lauren and Carson. Thank you Waite family for the good times!

Drew is 4!

Drew turned 4 on March 28th. He had a very fun birthday and was spoiled by his family and friends. He now has collected all of the Toy Story figures and has more "lego guys" than we can keep track of. Drew loves little toys and always has one in his hands, pockets, shoes, or any other spot he can find for them. He loves legos and enjoyed his lego cake we made for him.

Escape to Paradise

Okay, it wasn't Hawaii, but it sure was a wonderful escape from winter! We were able to spend some time with my brother Ryan and his wife Jessica and Kaleb the first week. The next week we met up with Erica and her boys Dawson and Isaac and Trisha and Naomi (all cousins). It was so much fun and Matthew and Drew loved being with their cousins. We also saw Brandee and Jeremy Hubbard which was wonderful. Disneyland truly is magical and I cannot wait until our next trip in 2011 when all the new rides will be comleted.

The beach was a little chilly but still to be enjoyed

After wearing cowboy boots, thick arch insoles and maxi pads inserts Drew made the magic 40" height requirement!

The Latest Low Adventures

Who ever said that boys can't tap dance!?

Matthew convincing Santa that he has been a good boy this year

Drew begging Santa for an XBOX 360

First fishing in Alaska was ice fishing for us! It really was a lot of fun. Matthew and Drew caught 2 fish. Drew managed to fall in one of the holes into the water, not too surprising.

My sister Nat made these adorable shirts, wish some of the creative genes had passed down to me.

We might have a new neighbor!

He seems a bit large and intimidating, but we think he would make a great neighbor. He seems to be making himself at home quite easily and left behind a souvenir for us!

Halloween 2009

This is the best shot I have of Boba Fett and Buzz. We have had so many Halloween parties this week that Drew dressed up as something different at every party. It was a frigid Halloween night but we still had a good time. I love Halloween.
