Halloween 2017

Pumpkin carving at Cam and Rachelle's.  I had to work and I asked Kirt to take pictures of the kids.  This is all I got.  Garret carving his pumpkin.

 I went trick or treating at the high school with Michelle, Ike and Scarlett.  We found Tanner.

Garret runs cross country

The elementary school has a 6 week cross country program that Garret participated in this year.  Garret improved so much.  His best mile time was 6:22.

Garret qualified for districts and got to run at CV.

Depeche Mode Concert

I bought tickets for the Depeche Mode concert for Kirt for his birthday back in May.  I convinced our friends the Crandall's to buy some too so that we could go over to the concert in Seattle together.  We had dinner the 1st night at a Chinese restaurant.  Then we walked around Pike's Street and went and got Cheesecake at the Cheesecake factory.

 The tallest man alive was 8'11".  He makes Kirt look short.
 Underground Seattle tour

 The concert was awesome.  The opening band was horrible but Depeche Mode certainly made up for that.

We had to drive home after the concert was done at 11pm because it was the primary program the next day.  We got home at 4am, Kirt, Shauna and Mark had to be up for Ward Council at 7:30.  I didn't have to be to church oil 8:30. Sunday afternoon naps have never felt so good.

Tanner at the Greasy Pig

Tanner stood outside during the entire football game at the CV vs U-High rival game with his shirt off.  That is some spirit he has.  My friend Shannan Skidmore sent me this picture.  She said is was 35 and windy outside.

Kraziness in the Kennel

Kirt and Garret went to Kraziness in the Kennel.  It is the kick off for the Gonzaga men's basketball season.  They have a 3 point contest, dunk contest and a scrimmage.  Then the whole team sits in the halls of the Kennel and give out autographs.  Garret got a poster autographed by the entire team.

Homecoming 2017 Tanner's Senior Year

Tanner asked Nicola Stachofsky to Homecoming. She is a volleyball player and he asked her after a volleyball game.  They went to the Dockside for dinner (after 2+ hours of pictures), to the dance at U-High, and then hung out at the Chapman's house after the dance.

Visiting Lisa Criddle

Lisa and I have been wanting to get together for a long time and haven't been able to find a time that works.  Cameron was going to be gone hunting, so I went over for a few days and we hung out.  It was so fun to catch up.  We went for 2 hikes, went to lunch, and just reminisced and laughed.  We called our friend Candice and did more reminiscing and laughing.  It was tons of fun!

 So here is the small world story.  Lisa and I went down to St. George for Candice's wedding in 1999. We shared a hotel room.  We also shared the room with another girl that Lisa and Candice had roomed with when they were at Rick's.  I had never met her before.  When Lisa and I were talking, I asked Lisa what the girls name was that we roomed with because I didn't remember.  She said her name was Brenda Peine, and that her married name was Vernon.  I asked if there was anyway that she lived in Spokane now because I had met someone named Brenda Vernon at girls camp this last summer.  She said that she had moved to Spokane.  So I hung out with Brenda at girls camp and didn't even realize that we had met years ago at Candice's wedding.  Crazy. Here is us at the wedding.  We texted Candice to send us some pictures.  She sent this one and then a few more.
 This is Kirt and I the summer we got married.  We hung out with Candice a ton this summer.  We loved to go roller blading (well at least Candice and I did, not so sure about Kirt.)
