A trip to visit Grammy, Gramps, Courtney, and little Marshall!

In June Tanya and the kids headed to Oregon for a quick trip to visit Grammy, Gramps, Aunt Courtney and baby Marshall!

The trip included great walks in the woods!

 Bike rides with Gramps
Cuddling with babies...

Climbing the tower...
and taunting your sister below! :)
and putting a new coat of paint on a bike! It was a quick trip, but everyone had a really great time!

Summer fun with Daddy!

Fishing on the Missouri below Maroney Dam is always a good time and you never know what you might find...  Like beautiful moths!
Little girls might even have the opportunity to reel in big fish! :)
Like this nice drum!

Boys will be boys and must practice with their toys! :) Clint has taught Dane to be quite the shot with his little bow. Broken arm and all! Here he is stalking the elusive gator in the backyard!

They bunnies remain a cute and fun addition! The kids are actually pretty good with the harvest/consumption of them as well!

Daddy showed the kids that you don't have to go far to have a great camping experience! A tent in the backyard is just as fun as trip out and about!
Especially when there are smores!
Summer would not be complete without some bowfishing! Dad was successful and landed some nice carp!

Lots of catching up to do!

Kimber is all signed up for Kindergarten and ready to roll next year! Here she is at the "Hi" tea meeting her classmates and filling out a little paperwork.
As you can see, there is no shortage of spunk with that girl! :)

Lots of bunnies this spring to love on! Dane is sportin' his shorter cast that he got after the first 3 weeks with the longer cast.

A trip to the dentist is always fun! We love Ms. Aimee!

And Dane's end of year program! They sang and we truly enjoyed listening to them!

Then they each got a type of candy that Mrs. Rask feels matches their personality or year. Dane got bubble tape for all the "ouchies" he got throughout the year! :)

Kimber also had to get one cavity filled. This was her getting that done. She was a total champ and never even realized she got a shot! Yes, Ms. Aimee is that good!

Summer in Great Falls is just an awesome time to hang out and catch any type of water creature we can find!

Snakes in the Missouri.

Horned toads at the cabin!

and whatever else is out there!

Happy Birthday Sweet Kimber

Our little sweet girl turned 5 years old today! Hard to believe! But, we all hung out, had a delicious dinner followed by ice cream, brownies and presents! :)
Make a wish!

Awesome new books!

and a new bike! Wooo hoooo! :)

Gardening, Awards, and Graduation!

Clint and the kids are planting a BIG garden in the back yard! Looks like fun; and good hired help, too!

 Getting it done... even with a broken arm! :)

 We made a super quick trip to Missoula for the State MACOP Award Ceremony. Clint received a Medal of Valor for his excellent work. Here are the Chief (Bowen) and one of the retired Captains presenting him with the award.
 Clint works with a great group...  as you can see, the Great Falls Police Department was well represented.

 Then we hurried back the next day for Kimber's Preschool Graduation/Concert.
 Singing the songs and having a great time! :)

 Unfortunately, I had a tough time getting a picture of her receiving her diploma from Mrs. Lincoln, but here it is! :)
 Daddy's girl, for sure! :)
 Okay, maybe a bit of a "mommy's girl" too! :)
