Tanner's baseball

Tanner had another fun season of Baseball. He pitched and played 1st and 3rd base.

Hatch family visit

Kirt's sister Kari and her kids from Texas came to visit us. We had lots of fun. We went to the Lake one day, went for a ride on the Centennial Trail on our bikes and swam in the Spokane River, swam in the pool, and played lots of Wii. Thanks Hatch family for making the long drive to see us.

2010 Family Reunion at camp Na-Bar-Lee

We went to camp Na-Bar-Lee over the 4th of July for our Spear family reunion this summer. It was loads of fun. Here are some of the things we did.These floaties were very popular in the water and out.

Kirt got the hang of wake surfing and was able to throw the rope in the boat.

We crossed the Lake and did fireworks on the Indian side of Roosevelt since they are legal over there. My 2 little kids have never done their own fireworks.

It wouldn't be a Spear get together without lots of card playing
Tanner and Katie loved the fire. Tanner got up and started one every morning and then again every night.

Josh was actually emptying one of the ballasts not peeing off the back of the boat.
Another Spear tradition-wiffleball. We played a deadly game of it here in the trees.
Tanner loved helping his dad cook.
Aren't these 4 boys cute.

The other day we were driving down the road and Katie said "I want some hand cuffs, a pretty gown, and some more make-up." Should I be worried?

Garret Wake Surfs

Garret has been talking about wake surfing for weeks. He lies on the floor of the living room and gives us all a demonstration of how to wake surf. It goes something like this. You get in the water, you hold the rope like this, you put your feet on the board and yell hit it. Then he jumps up and shows us how you stand and hold the rope and everything. But he is all trash talk, because when it comes to actually doing it, he always chickens out. So yesterday we kind of tricked him into doing it. We got him to get in the water with Kirt and the just play of the surf board. Then Kirt grabbed him and threw him into position and we hit it. He screamed of course, but loved it once he was up.

Katie's dance recital

Katie's dance recital was back in May, but I am just finally getting pictures from a friend from it. I actually took my camera (which is amazing for me) but the battery died after taking one picture. Katie loves to dance.
