Recent Activities

I had a bunch of photos on my G9 camera that I finally got a moment to post.

A couple weeks ago we went to Nick’s division party which was at the Shiloh Inn.  There were some pretty amazing prizes there.  They had a 37 inch LCD tv, blu-ray player, pots and pans, Costco gift card, wine baskets, Guitar Hero for the XBOX, a Cuisinart, etc etc.   We were hoping we would win something, but we didn’t.  Even though we didn’t, the food was good and the company was fun.  Someone at our table even had these reindeer ears we all wore.

After the party I met up with Jenny and Dan

A couple Sundays ago Jenny and I drove out to Prosser to visit her friend Jason who works at Heavens Cave.  We also visited Alexandria Nicole winery.  Loved all the wines.  Good times.

Last Saturday I came and volunteered at the Habitat for Humanity Women’s Build.  This is what the house on the outside looks like now.  I did the vacuuming and some digging outside.  Next Saturday is the big induction to the family.

On Saturday night we went to the Tri City American’s Game.  They played the Portland Winterhawks who one of the AMS biggest rivals.  That night, on the first goal the American’s made, the audience got to throw a teddy bear to donate.  They collected over 2000 bears!  It was awesome.  They ended up winning that night.

There were so many fights!  Those make things a little interesting and fun.

This winter because Nick and I don’t have garages to protect our cars, Nick uses a big beach towel to cover the windshield so we don’t have to scrape in the morning.  Today there was a two hour delay for work.  When Nick went outside to start the car and heat it up, this is what happened to the towel!  It completely froze into a solid sheet!  It was hillarious.
