The big 80!

Grandma Smith had an 80th birthday party!
She wanted a talent show, so the Great-Grand kids sang Down on "Grandma's" Farm!

This is Makella, Danika and Lilly dancing away while Uncle Matt was singing.

All the Great-Grand kids made a poster for Grandma!

After the party we went to Grandma's house to take pictures in her beautiful garden.

These two are so funny together!
Noah and Xander!


Prego Wendy!

Taking a break from pictures.

All the Don and Reva Smith family that was at their house.

Xander, doing his funny smile!

Uncle Matt Graduates!

Pete's brother, Matt graduated from Oregon Institute of Technology!
So we all drove to Portland (it was a good reminder of why I stay away from Portland Freeways) to go to the graduation ceremony!
The ceremony was really nice and I think it was good for the kids to see that it's a big deal when you graduate from college!
Congrats Matt!
After the ceremony we got ice cream!

Yes, Zach is sitting in a baby seat. Danika is really enjoying her ice cream!

Here are our pet tadpoles!
We decided to raise tadpoles, because I thought the kids would really like seeing how they change into frogs and there are tons of frogs around (even in our yard). I thought it would be a good learning experience!
They have been a total success, although we are coming to the tricky part where the tadpoles turn into froglets and have to start eating bugs. So we'll see if we can give them what they need. Honestly, I get the feeling that I'm the one that has been the most interested in the whole process!
We have three tadpoles with tiny little legs and 2 tadpoles with arms and legs.

Danika is always making this face!
I think she likes the reaction she gets from people when she makes this face.
But it really is funny.
This picture doesn't do her justice, but you get the idea!
Oh, and she can only do it when she says "Huh?"!
