Happy Easter 2023

We had a wonderful time at Erin’s this Easter Sunday.

Anna run the pony rides, and we did some training with Erin’s dog, Bear.

We also go in our regular (not) “Easter-themed” board game, Blood Rage! Michelle won in the final round with an amazing quest upgrade.

We played a game of Moonrakers with Erin as well, which Jason won in a photo-finish.

June 2022 Weekend

I haven’t posted in a while, so here’s a quick summary of what we did this last weekend.

It’s hay week and it was very hot, so we’ve been getting hay from Delphian at sunset to keep from overheating.

I also helped a friend start digging up his back yard with his excavator, put up a new Star Wars Poster in my shop, and Atley did some amazing art!

Anna ran “Anna Camp” to kick off the summer. She entertained 10 children for 3 weeks! Then, on the hottest day, yet, the families went to the beach for some cool breezes, sun and sand. Archer loved throwing the football, and was amazingly good at getting it to spiral. Atley and his friends dug and played all day long.

Ashton finally got to see Weird Al live! It was amazing. Al is quite the entertainer! His live rendition of Albuquerque alone was worth the price of admission. He played all Ashton’s favorite originals! Bonus for getting to go with friends he don’t get to hang out with enough. Chris H and Matthew H.

It was a great weekend!

Christmas Decorating 2021

it’s starting to look a lot like Christmas!

We decorated our tree tonight. The boys helped, and Chloe joined in as well. The boys were uninterested in spreading the fake write branches, slightly interested in hanging lights, but they loved hanging ornaments.

This is the first Christmas for our two kittens, so we’re a little worried, but it’s been 5 hours now and we haven’t lost an ornament to a cat yet!

On Saturday, Archer helped me get most of the house lights up!

Board Games

Ashton has gotten very deep into board games since moving to Oregon. I have always loved games, and he up playing games like RISK.

We started with a small collection around 2010 with games like Settlers of Catan, Star Wars RISK, and Lord of the Rings RISK. Then around 2018 we found Space Base, Secret Hitler, King of Tokyo.

Today, Ashton’s favorite games are INIS, Project Elite, And the latest addition to the collection: Mechs vs Minions.
