Pretty flowers...Pretty Girl!!

Kali and I had a little photo shoot the other day and I thought I would share some of the little cutie with you. She loves Abbey's garden, maybe she can sense her or maybe it's all the flowers and the water...whatever it is I love it!! Here's her new cheesy grin when the camera is pointed at her!
Everything is about running...this one will keep me on my toes!!
Just a little bo-cane-no (abbeyism) from my Dalia garden!
My sweety!!
Yeah...she's not supposed to be up there...but she can't keep her hands out of the fountain!!

Derby Day 2007!!

The month of August brings the NW Washington Fair and with that the Demolition Derby!! Shane has been derbying for 22 years so this is a very big day for us as a Family! It starts months earlier with buying the car tearing it apart and then building back! We have a lot of help with a great crew of guys! This year Shane was voted the Sheriff in the Dukes of Hazard. We thought that it would make him a target but instead he ended up winning his heat. That put him directly in the main event. It only took 5 guys and 5 hours to get the car ready to derby again. After getting beat up a bit in the main event he ended up getting stuck in a corner and took 7th place. I had over a 100 pictures of the day and had to narrow it down to 10! All in all it was a great day for derby crew 35!!

NBC Basketball Camp

This past week Truman and four of his friends (Dak, Josh, John, & Zach) headed over to Spokane WA and Whitworth College for and intense week of Basketball. They started there day at 7am with ball handling and breakfast and continued throughout the day with defense, offense, drills, games, devotions and meetings. It is a Christian based camp and the boys had a great time. Shane and I went over the pick them up on Thursday and were able to watch some games and the closing ceremony. Out of over 300 campers all 5 of the Lynden boys walked a way with an award!! It was a very proud moment. Truman received the shadow award, for the best defense in this group (he didn't get that from me....all of you that know me and/or played basketball with me know that I LOVED to shoot, but defense wasn't my strong suit!!)
Here are the boys with their awards!!
Zach, Truman, Josh, Dak, John

Sacked out!!

This is what happens when the little monkey has a busy day and she decides that napping at her usual time isn't working for her!! Little stinker!! Well I wanted to post a picture of the new couches and recliner anyway!! So here is the new recliner!! We moved all the upstairs furniture downstairs and put the new ones up stairs. All the couches recline as well!
Just too cute!!
Gotta love the eyes cracked open and her little snaggle tooth and tongue hanging out!!

Swimming Lessons!!

I love swimming lessons...the boys get to swim, wear themselves out and cool off on a hot day!! This year was no different, other then the fact that I had a really hard time remembering to take them!! Old age I'm afraid!! Here are a few pics of my cute lil' nines!! Last day of swimming is always a favorite....sharks and minnows!!
Future heart breaker I'm afraid!!
My nines!!
Don't worry, he didn't hit his head....he's actually very good at the flip...got it from Truman!!
Hey Mom watch....Ok, what you basically walked to the end the the diving board and jumped it...no it's a pencil dive!! Nice!
