Fun Summer Night
Taylor is working on the farm, Spencer is at Football Camp at ISU & Grant is on a Scout Campout - - that just leaves us two at home this weekend! We had great plans of taking M'Kay & McCall to the paddle boats in Boise and they closed right before we got there. So we headed to our Tropical Sno Shack and treated ourselves to a delicious shaved ice. Then we hit the Greenbelt and the MK Nature Center. It was such a great night! The river was beautiful and I could go to the Nature Center everyday. Love it! After that we let the kids play at the park for a while and then we headed to find something to eat. It wasn't the night we had planned, but it was fabulous!

Tropical Sno Grand Opening!
Marc has wanted to open a sno shack for years as a way to pay for the kids missions and college. We just never got around to it. Now that he has been out of work since last fall, we decided now was the time. Obviously right now it is to help make ends meet, but hopefully once he finds a new job, the sno shack will be our children's fund! Come see us on Warm Spring in Boise and watch for our other locations coming in Nampa!

Welcome to Tropical Sno . . . may I take your order!

We are so proud of our Columbia Wildcat Wrestlers! Undefeated -- Conference Champions, District Champions & State Champions!!! Tradition calls for wrestlers doing crazy things to their hair for state. This year Studio D Sponsored the team by taking care of it for them. Thanks Victor & Company! Taylor & Spencer both had great seasons and we are very proud of them

Taylor's 17th Birthday

OK - - I know, I know! I am way too young to have a seventeen year old! :) Poor Taylor always has to celebrate his birthday right before district & state wrestling. As you can see, there are no cupcakes, doughnuts or muffins! His big treat was a huge bowl of Clementine Oranges and half a dozen fresh mangos. He was thrilled to get a pull-up bar and his favorite movies . . .

"R" Factor Award

Reagan Elementary gives out the "R" Factor award to students who are Responsible, Respectful & Reliable. M'Kay & McCall both received the award today! Good Job!

The big black eye!!!

M'Kay decided to play baseball for the first time this year!!! A couple of days ago he was at practice and he tried to catch a fly ball with his eye instead of his mitt! Oops!
