Happy 13th Birthday Courtney!

March 29th was a special day, Courtney turned 13! We did a little shopping on Saturday (since we have agreed that we have different tastes, but that is OKAY!). We then went out to dinner at the Cheesecake Factory. Sunday we had a cake and sang happy birthday and opened presents. We just want Courtney to know how much we love her and are proud of the beautiful person is is becoming.

Rest In Peace

While Dave was here visiting us in Enumclaw my dad started getting Dave into Kayaking. In tribute to this, my dad decided to draw a picture of Dave...which soon was edited by Dave and given back. So here it

After the editing job (notice Dave going up stream)

I'll go where You want me to go....

Patiently waiting for family - notice the unopened envelope under his elbow

Blain trying to contact his Mom and Dad on speakerphone - notice the envelope, still unopened

Still waiting

Lorri is trying to conference in Grandma and Grandpa Thomas, Blain is still waiting - boy does he have patience! (:

(sorry I didn't get the picture rotated)

Tanner dialing Grandma and Grandpa Butler.

Finally, the envelope is being opened

The excitement is building.
The boys were on the edge of their seats

Blain reading his mission call - Tucson, Arizona!

Unfortunately no one won the $1000 dollar prize from Grandpa Butler.

Blain was thrilled to be learning Spanish, notice the cell phone on the couch and in his hand, we couldn't hear them but the Grandparents and parents heard the announcement.

Talking to his Mom and Dad as he reads through the information book

The Call! ( sorry I didn't rotate this one either)
