Honor Flight is a great program, allowing veterans the opportunity to go to Washington DC to visit the memorials that have been built in their honor. 

Please consider a donation to this very worthy cause!

Surprise Bread

Today I baked another batch of our favorite pumpkin bread, but we also had bananas that we had to use.  I saw a picture somewhere of a surprise loaf of pound cake, so I made it out of banana and pumpkin breads.


The girls loved it!

Vietnam Traveling Memorial

Today, we got to attend the Traveling Wall Vietnam Memorial.  The May Hutton Chapter of the DAR read the names of the local soldiers who’s names were on the wall.  It was a very moving experience

The girls making rubbings of the names on the wall.


The Spokane Children of the American Revolution and the May Hutton Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

The girls with the Boy Scouts who rang the replica Liberty Bell during the name reading ceremony.

9th Lost Tooth!

Selena has gotten quite brave, she used to leave a tooth in till it was hanging on by a thread.  Today she was concerned that she would lose her wiggly tooth, and pulled it out by herself in the car! 
Chris came to visit his girlfriend, the tooth fairy!
