Male athlete of the year

Tanner was awarded the University High School male athlete of the year.  We skipped the awards ceremony and went to the lake for Garret's birthday instead.

Opening in the pool

As usual the pool was green again this year when we opened it up.  It doesn't stop Katie and Garret from jumping in it.

Garret's 11th birthday

Garret is 11 today! Can't believe how grown up he is getting! He got some sunglasses, a tennis racket,  tennis balls, and a box full of candy!
 Birthday breakfast cinnamon rolls

When we went to see Marsha for spring break, Garret loved using her sippy cups so she sent him a sippy cup for his birthday.

Tanner's senior prom

Trying on his tux. The pants were just a little short.

Tanner went to senior prom with Brooke Braley. He let me tag along to take pictures.  First we went to Brooke's house to pick her up.  Then we went to Gonzaga to take group pictures.  The dance was at The Lincoln Event Center.  Then he went and hung out at Justine Jordan's house (Boston's girlfriend) after the dance.
