Mormon Prom-Tanner and Hannah

Tanner went to Mormon Prom-his first formal dance.  He went with Hannah White a girl in the Belle Terre ward in our stake.  She is a junior at his high school.  They went with 5 other couples.  They 1st met at Hannah's house for tons of photos.  Then they went to Alex Poulsen's house for dessert.  Then they went to the dance at Centerpiece.  The dance was sponsored by the Spokane Valley stake.  It was a 5 stake event for priests and laurels.  After the dance, they went to for dessert at Teague May's house.

Tanner learns to shave (and Garret pretends to shave)

Kirt taught Tanner how to shave before he went to his first formal dance.  Garret got in on the action too.  Tanner only has a few long chin hairs, but they really needed to be shaved off.

Emily's 40th Birthday

I had an awesome 40th birthday.  Kirt was awesome and made my birthday really special.  He planned a lunch for me with a bunch of my friends, made a video of my family and friends sharing why they loved me or special memories we had, then he arranged for us to go zip lining!  It was a great day.
The tradition sign on the garage from my mom.  With the added Oh no the big 4-0.
Zip lining in Liberty Lake at Mica Moon Zip Lining.  There we 8 lines.  It was fun and beautiful.

Amy Raab spent the day posting incriminating pictures of the 2 of us on Facebook.  She would post a new one every hour or 2.  It was so fun going to memory lane and made the day so special.  These are all the pictures she posted.  The one above is the 2 of us senior year with underwear on our head.

Father and Son Campout

Garret LOVES, LOVES, LOVES the father and son campout.  He loves everything about it-the camping, the other boys, the being with his dad who lets him run around and do anything he wants and stay up late.  He gets so excited every year when the father and son campout rolls around.  They went to Camp Easton this year for the campout.

Garret was so excited to earn his math medal. He had to answer 50 multiplication problems in 3 minutes and get them all right.  He did it on his 1st try.
