Everything you wanted to know but were too afraid to ask...

Ryan here. I just hacked in into Andrea's blog to wish her a happy 17th wedding anniversary and to tell the world (or at least the three people following her) how much I love her and how fortunate I am to share my life with her. Unfortunately for her I am a man of few words, but here is what I've got.


I love you and I don't tell you that enough. You are a loving and patient wife, a caring and patient mother, and I am the luckiest man in the world to have shared the last 17 years with you. We have had our ups and downs and not all of our dreams have come true, but we have lived an adventure together that I would not trade for the world. I am grateful to God that I have you to come home to every night and for all that he has brought us through together. When life is distracting us and I forget to tell you, remember that I love you more than I let on sometimes.

Happy Anniversary,

I know it's been awhile. Life's been crazy! Anyway, I thought I would show you my pizza. It turned out so awesome! I was watching one of my favorite shows, Diner's Drive-in's and Dive's on Food Network, and the gal was making the dough for this amazing looking pizza. When the host asked her what kind of flour she was using she said High Gluten Flour. Hmmm..... Maybe this is the "key" ingredient that my pizza has been missing. I just can't get the dough right. So I tried the High Gluten Flour. WOW! It was so stretchy and tasted great! Very easy to work with. I even rolled up some cheese sticks in the crust. So a couple of days later I tried homemade Bagel Dogs. They were great too! Next on my list is breadsticks! Can't wait!

Silver Lake

We had a great day at Silver Lake today. It was the "All Church Campout". We just went up for the day for the potluck and lake festivities. Ryan was the official Blob man. Everyone wanted him to be the guy to propel them off the end of the tube, a.k.a Blob.

Just a few friends.

In this video, Nathan get's blobbed first by David. Then David crawls to the end and gets blobbed by Ryan. I wish I had a closeup of Ryan in the life jacket. If you ever saw Tommy Boy then it's the "Fat man in a little coat" scene. Very funny!
Now that we're home Ryan is paying the price for his fun. He's having a hard time moving around and his back hurts. Poor guy!

I thought you might like a video I took of our greenhouse. The wind took it for a ride. Guess we're not in Kansas anymore Toto!

For the past few years we've been invited to share the 4th of July festivities at Sun-Up Bay Resort in Idaho. They always have a parade with all the neighbors and friends on the 3rd of July followed by fireworks. This year David and Nathan were asked to be apart of the parade. David was reluctant. But when a friend asked him too, (she's on the left in the picture) he said yes. I know it's blurry but you can almost see his smirk. The top picture (that I can't seem to move!) is Nathan "Hooky bobbin' it" (as Ryan called it) on the back of the fire engine.

Kite Video

So here's the video of us flying kites today. Ryan put some great finishing touches to it. Enjoy!


Nathan strapped the stunt kite to his back and pretended to be a superhero. It was great!

So here's a shot of David. He tied his kite to the pole and let it fly by itself. Too much work doing it on his own!
