Kendra Turns 12!!!!

Today is Kendra's 12th birthday! Oh my gosh I can believe how quickly time flies.... Kendra has been such a blessing in our lives.....I have thoroughly enjoyed watching her grow these last twelve years! To be on the "mother" end of excitement, disappointment, let down and joy has been a emotional roller coaster..... but so far I have enjoyed the ride! I love you baby..... I can wait to see whats in store for the next 12 years So the start of the party! Friends from every milestone in her life came to celebrate..... The introductions started.... "Hi I'm so & so and I have know Kendra for this long" It was quite interesting to hear the different ways the girls have all meet. So after introductions we started with Dinner! A Taco bar with Strawberry slushies.....

Next was presents and cake! Then the real excitement starts..... Kendra received a High School Musical Cd.... We had 9 screaming, dancing, and laughing girls going crazy..........
As I watched these girls dance and sing with tunes from a silly movie... I prayed that Kendra with be this free when she is praising God..... She is a faithful and mighty servant.... If only we could all be this free!

I love you Kendra Jenee!!

Gone Fishin'

We went to a birthday party this weekend. There was swimming and games and FISHING!!! Here is Kendra trying her hand at it! This is the first time our kids have ever fished.

She caught one but it was little so she sent it back into the water.

On the other hand Ayanna took to fishing like a fish does to water! She caught her first one and she was hooked! She caught 5 fish within a half hour! Her expression each time was like it was the first time she caught one!

We could barley get her off the dock when it was time to leave! She caught about 7 fish in all.... One was thrown back and the other one got away!

So labor day we had my parents over for barbecued trout dinner! Ayanna like to catch em better than she liked eating them! But I think she has a new passion! She already asking to go out on a boat with her Grandpa Keith! ( I don't think Momma is ready for that yet!)

The Seattle Seahawks

On August 4, 2007 we took the kids to the Seahawk scrimmage at Seattle Memorial Stadium.

Ayanna had a great time meeting the Seagals and getting signatures..

They even got to try on uniforms! They had so much fun making "mean" faces.. they had to growl will doing this!

These guys and gals really got the crowd moving with alot of fun drummin! The four with the symbolls were a crack up! They really got into it!

The scrimmage was fun.... it was some nice family time! Even though Kendra was not with us!

At the end of the scrimmage the players hung around to sign autographs.... Leonard, Ayanna and Darian were the last ones allowed on the field! It was so great to see Ayanna very excited about getting her hat signed.... Darian's hat was to dark but he had autograph paper.... Daddy liked it because they got Lofa Tatupu's #51 autograph!

We also took the kids to the Seattle Center to play in the fountain for a little bit.
I love this picture of Ayanna!

she is so little compared to that thing!

The fountain is incedible- especially when you have the Space Needle in the background!

The kids had a great time! God provided the most beautiful day for our adventure!
