Tilley Time and Timmy Turns Twelve!

Our good friends, affectionately known as the Triple A's, arrived on Monday from California!
This is the traditional airport parking lot picture . . .
taken this time with the self-timer on Valerie's camera! : -)  
 Puppy time!

On Tuesday morning, Kyle and Austin were working some on Kyle's equipment . . .
the rest of the people in the picture are keeping them company. : -)
The quads and the Triple A's have been going on a walk early every morning.
Yesterday, I went down the hill to take a picture of them in front of the pond,
and this is what greeted me!
Thank you, Lord!  

Tuesday night, on Timmy's actual birthday, we all went bowling!
Thanks, Valerie, for taking all the pictures!

Then, last night, we had a little get-together/dinner/party to celebrate Timmy's birthday!

 Birthday breakfast . . . monkey bread!
For dinner, steak and mashed potatoes!

 You are such a sweet blessing in all our lives, Timmy!
We thank the Lord for you,
and love you sooooo much!

Leavenworth, Part 3!

We're home now from Leavenworth, and had such a wonderfully special time there.
The only thing we were missing was Valerie, who stayed back to take care of everything at home.
She kept super busy taking care of all her dogs and puppies, and cleaning the house and making lots of make-ahead meals for our special friends (affectionately known as the Triple A.'s) that are arriving from California tomorrow!
(That is why she isn't in any of the Leavenworth pictures.)
We missed her very, very much!
Thanks so much, Valerie!

 The place that we stayed, the Icicle Inn/Resort, is where my sister, Kelley, works.
She just got this job about four months ago, and is lovin' it there!
She was able to get us a good discount for a two bedroom suite.
It worked out really well, and was an amazing place!
They had the best, complimentary breakfast we've ever had!
Lots and lots of choices, from warm eggs, sausage, kielbasa, biscuits and gravy to cinnamon rolls and everything in between! 
Kyle to full advantage of this!!! : -)
 Caroline was taking pictures of her family members to add picture icons next to their phone numbers in her new phone contact list. 
She thought one of me in the fall leaves would be perfect!  I agreed!

 We had been looking forward to the Fall Leaf Festival Parade all the time we were there.
We were lined up along the street, ready and waiting!  

 Here, some Cruiser cars were passing by, so the family jumped into "Bruiser Cruiser" mode,
and began giving each other some punches! ;-)

 After the parade, we went to visit Kelley and Louis' new house.
Unfortunately, Louis was at work, so we missed him!
But pictured below is "Quincy" one of Valerie's just-turned-one-year-old pups from Annie! 
He is really gorgeous!
 Here, she was doing a little trick for us with Quincy.
The other little cutie is Kipton, the long-haired dachshund.
 All of the following photos are from Caroline, Kyle, and Victoria's phones.
They left early in the morning, while it was still dark,
and took a hike up the mountain that was closest to the Icicle Inn.
