EPIC tantrum!

Friday, September 24, 2010


We have recently announced that we will be moving to Florida in February. That may or may not be the case. Due to a sad loss in the family, we may actually be moving to Indiana. I personally don't care where we go, so long as I have my family. I will be happy either way. Jeff really wants to enjoy Florida, but as a wonderful husband, he wants me to be happy, and he knows that right now, that means being with my Dad, mom, and sisters.
I can't remember the last time all 3 of us were together. My fave pic out of the whole trip!

 You wont see a sky anywhere else like this one! Never the same the next minute!

 The palm trees... need I say more?

 Boiled Cajun peanuts.... yes,,, they are yummy!

Only time will tell where we end up! 
I will post more often for a bit, as I try to catch you up on my adventures in Florida!

I just want to do a quick update of how AMAZING my trip has been so far!
I Finally met my best friend, in person for the first time! We headed out to rainbow river for her husbands birthday, and I was in heaven! Crystal blue water, 74 degrees, sun shining. I couldnt ask for more!

Good times had by all!

Here we are at Head springs after the float. This is Terra, Me and Amanda. This water was incredible!

Here I am swimming my heart out! The water upnorth is too dirty and cold to enjoy!

This is an amazing underwater shot! I love it!

Relay for life 2010

This year was another emotional year. We walked for a cure, we walked for hope. We walked in honor, and in memory.
This year was a memorable one. Our team (Vancouver Ford/Mark Little) Raised  $14,027 Towards a cure. I am so proud to have been a part of that. We camped out for the entire night. First time we have done that since the kids were born. They did pretty good! I managed to stay up till about 4:30 am. Then I crashed out in the tent. Jeff woke up to man the drawing table. It was pretty cold when we arrived to help set up, but warmed up pretty quickly.

This picture breaks my heart and calls me to rejoice in the same. These are our Clark County, Wa survivors. Even the 3, beautiful children in front.

My wonderful husband manned the POP+CHIPS+SHIRT for $1 trailer!

Our top donations! Vancouver Ford came in 2nd this year!

 There were so many Luminaries. Too many...

 One reason we walk

The other reason we walk.

 Oh ye midnight snack of all nighters! So good it was!

 The next morning we drew names to see who won the 100% donated prizes!
 3 of them being big flat panel t.v.s by Best Buy!!!!

 JJ won The bowling party for 8 with 2 bowling balls to be carved to fit!
 It was another amazing year. I walked in honor/memory of my Grandfather. Almost 2 years ago he passed. Strongest person I know.

Linder Family Reunion

Oh my! I have lost my place! What month is it? Since June 14th, things have been so busy. Jeff's mom, grandma and aunty flew up, then we had Jeff's cousin Josh's wedding and the Linder family reunion. So for today, I will just cover the wedding! And what a beautiful wedding it was!

It gave me a chance to get some AMAZING Pics of my babies!

Papa and JJ found a cherry tree with bright juicy cherries! And he looked so handsome in his church clothes! I love his formal clothes!

JJ was just slightly obsessed with the Bride. It was adorable! As she started to walk down the isle, he looked up and said "Is that the princess?" I was amazed! He melted my heart with that! The rest of the day he was always looking for her. He found a white rose at one point and completely un prompted, he took the rose to her. I was butter! My son is such a gentleman! I am so proud of him! In fact, on the way home he told us all that he wanted a princess to! I made sure he knew, that one day, he too will have a princess!

JJ made friends with one of the Flower Girls, he was sharing his snack with her.

 JJ and his Flower Girls!

 If my son knew I posted this.... He had some pretty awesome dance moves!

 JJ dancing away with the flower girl! He had such a good time!

Papa had a special dance with his Leidibug. I loved it! She too was a dancing cutie!

It was a great day! A great start to an amazing weekend!

Family and Good Times!

Its been a while since i posted. We had family fly up, and things got a bit hectic. Jeff's mom, Auntie, and Gram ma came up to visit from Hawaii. Jeff's mom had yet to meet her gran daughters till now. It was nice to see the kids interacting with her and getting in some special time. Its rare now a days when a Great Gram ma gets the chance to meet her Great Grand kids! We went to the Children's Museum, The Zoo, Shopping, and just on the go! I can only h handle so much stimulation before i get cranky and drained. We had a lot of fun though!
Lei and Kaia at the children's museum.
JJ at the zoo! He had such a great time. It rained a bit, but since it was cool out, all the animals were out! So we got some amazing pics of them!
To most this is just a dandelions. But for JJ this is the flower he picked for his Gramma! Its so sweet! She was telling me how Jeff would pick the same flowers for her!
JJ and Uncle Matt at the Zoo. JJ was all about Uncle Matt (my husbands baby brother) the entire time! It was borderline obsessive. lol. JJ would do anything Uncle Matt told him to do, and would go anywhere Uncle Matt went! After Matt went home JJ had some withdrawals. He cried for him for a couple nights. Then he started to understand that Matt would be back in a couple weeks for the family reunion.
Uncle Matt with JJ on the tractor!

Uncle Matt and JJ "measuring up to the different species of bears.

With this dinosaur comes a funny (now) story. There was a sign leading up to it that stated "WARNING spitting ahead" we thought it was just a silly sign... till we saw the dinosaur actually spit!! It spit off to the side just before I took this pic.  Naturally we thought we were safe. I had JJ in front of me in the stroller. Strapped in. No way to run. The dinosaur turned its massive ugly head and did the unexpected. Yup! That's Right! He spit on JJ! Poor kid was freaked! I was laughing at it, but JJ couldn't find the humor in it. We continued down the path to another set of dinosaurs. These too had the same warning. No worries this time! we knew to be on our guard. Too bad they failed to point out the dinosaurs hiding in the bushes that were going to spray us as we walked by.... REPEATEDLY! JJ had enough at that time. He was quivering  and on the verge of tears. Thankfully this wonderful guide noticed and asked if i would like to exit out a side door. She saved my sons dreams from being filled with massively ugly spitting dinosaurs, and saved me from having to share the bed with him! Poor guy repeated every time we walked into a new exhibit- "No dinosaurs mommy!". Now he finds it funny, but at the time...not so much!

So that's a quick run down of the past couple of weeks. Hope everyone else also had a great couple of weeks!
