Skye went with my Dad and Sam to Alaska this summer to tear down a house and beautify a piece of land in preparation for selling it. Skye had fun reverting back to his farmer upbringing and working with heavy equipment. Although they were up there for a full 8 days, they finished their work after 3 days of hard manual labor and were then able to play around in Alaska for a few days.
Just before we left Oregon we went boating with our friends Kirk and Melissa Saxman. Bryce was awefully concerned when we kept falling down while attempting to get up on the wakeboard. Brandon just wanted to jump in the water the entire time, but we all had a really good time.
Skye was the Scoutmaster in Monmouth and decided to do the Woodbadge Training Program. It was quite a process and we are proud of him for accomplishing his ticket items and getting beaded. For one of his several projects his troop built a cross-over bridge for the ward cub scout troop.
Over the 4th of July we had a family reunion for Skye's mom's side of the family in Sunriver, Oregon. His mom has a big family and it had been 5 years since they had all been together. It was fun to meet several family members (even after we have been married for 3.5 years)... We did a lot of biking, canoeing, hiking, and even a little caving. But the camera somehow didn't make it on a lot of the outings.
