Father's Day 2017!

We sure enjoyed celebrating Ted and all that he is to us on Father's Day! 
We spent the day together playing outside in Olympia.  
(We were down by 2, as W. and G. had a bio visit most of the day.) 
State Capital in the background. 

 These two planes came from separate directions, and then met up right over us to fly this close! 
 We brought our volleyball net and set it up.  It was a beautiful location and day!

Happy 22nd Birthday, Lydia!

You are pure sweetness in all our lives! We thank God for the very special blessing you have been for 22 years and counting! We are so thankful every day for all the joy, smiles, laughter, hugs, kindness, thoughtfulness, encouragement, tender-loving-care and Godly touch you bring to every soul blessed to know you. You are truly a precious gem and we love you soooooo much! 💕

You know you're a Mommy of an adorable baby when . . . 
 the Baby is the center of attention at your birthday party!! : -) 
 But I know that Lydia wouldn't want it any other way! 
 Marilyn is seriously the most expressive 8 week old baby I've ever known!  
And she's trying to talk already, too!!! :-)

Timmy's First All-Star Tournament! (and a Baby :-)

Timmy's All-Star team is made up of 1-2 players from about six different Lewis County teams. 
  Their first tournament of about 4 or so, was yesterday in the Portland area. 
Here are a few action shots! 
~ ~ ~ ~ 
Timmy had several different assignments . . . 
here he is on third base. 

 It is always challenging to get pictures through the chain link fences! 

Here he is trying to steal second.  
 And he made it! 
 Now on third, trying to get home!  
 A few more from third base . . . 
(He did catch this pop-up . . .he has the ball in his mitt! : -) 

 The pitcher is keeping an eye on Tim at second base . . . 
  And lastly . . .some pitching of this own. . . 

I love their uniforms . . .they look so All-AMERICAN!!! 
~ ~ ~
Almost as much as this All-American BABY . . . . 
 Funny how the Baby just happens to pop-up in this post! ;-) 

 She's definitely "All-Adorable"!!!! :-)

This Week In Pictures

The weather has been really nice! 
Valerie took the kids on a walkabout one day and took the following two pictures . . . 

 Caroline took the kids to a park to play and took these pictures . . . 

 Back at home, they ride their bikes a lot! 
 Kyle has been working super hard and long hours with his lawn care business trying to keep up with all the growing grass and other needs. 
The month of May was record-breaking in the total dollar amount of invoices.
He is also busy in any free moments plugging along on his online college courses. 
And then, there's being an UNCLE!  I think he is pulling out his Uncle card a little more often to move up the line at church to get to hold Marilyn!  He also has a very conveniently located lawn care customer at the end of the Tevis' road, so saves that one for the end of the day . . . 
usually around the dinner-hour works good for him. : -)
(Thanks to Lydia for this picture from church this morning!)
 The other 3 quadlets are also keeping super busy with all their various home, work & ministry projects! It's a revolving door around here with their coming and goings!  Never a dull moment and always lots to talk about and catch up on when we can!  I love it! 
We sure enjoyed getting to see and hear Michael Card in concert on Friday night! 
He is such a brilliant Bible scholar and gifted musician.  Putting those two things together makes for some amazing lyrics and beautiful music to his songs.  We were so blessed to listen to him in person!
And then . . . . 
there's the BABY!!!!! 

 Brielle and I were so blessed to be invited to the Tevis family baby shower for Marilyn yesterday!
Thanks to Lydia for helping me take many of these pictures!  
Look at this cake!!! 
Isn't it amazing?!!!!

The cake tasted as amazing as it looked! 
Marilyn received so many wonderful things! 
She is very, very blessed to have such sweet and loving relatives!  

 These pictures show just a few of the all the awesome things she received!
