2008 Photo Highlights
Tessa and the neighbors across the street made a snowman out of the mid April snow.
It took them almost all of the snow in the yard to do it but he sure turned out cute!
Tessa at the assembly on the last day of 1st grade!
Our first summer outing was up to Olympia to play at the park and walk on
the beach at Burfoot Park with Carol and Duncan
Grandma and Poppa were in town for the night and we got out the fire pit to make smores.
We should have done these before bath time!
Ashley, Duncan and Tessa with their new wolf pups at Wolfhaven in Tenino, WA
The weather was nice so we met out at Mia's house for the day. The girls had a blast on the slip-n-slide!
Fourth of July 2008
Waiting for the parade to start
We had a total of 32 people in attendance for the neighborhood BBQ on our front lawn before the fireworks.
It took three BBQs and lots of meat (steak, hot dogs, brats, ribs, chicken, halibut...) but everyone had a good time and went home full.
Fun in the sun at the Southwest Washington Fair
Tessa lost her two top teeth in the space of 3 days. Grandma took this
picture. I was in bed recovering from gallbladder surgery. :(

We carved 4 pumpkins this year because Tessa insisted the cats have one too.
