Super-Cute Adorable Baby! And some other stuff…

This last Sunday we had the opportunity to go to Cheney, WA to see Will and Courtney’s new baby, Whitney, get blessed. We had a great time spending time with them and were happy to see them. Whitney is a wonderful baby. She even let us hold her.

Will seemed especially proud of his new baby.




So here are some more shots of Whitney. We enjoyed her awesome hair, and how pleasant and happy she is.

On the way home we took a small detour to Palouse Falls State Park. It was a neat place that we had never seen. And like the last waterfall we stopped at it had a cute little animal pose for us on the edge of the cliff.



Here is a close up of our little marmot friend.


We want to say thanks to Will and Courtney for putting up with us and letting us come and visit, and we hope to see them again soon.

Wahkeena Falls


Recently, we decided to go on a little hike. The only problem was that everyone else had the same idea. We headed to the Columbia River Gorge and many of the trailheads were packed with cars. We decided on Wahkeena Falls since Ruth had not been there yet.


It is a very nice waterfall with a beautiful cascade below the main falls. An added bonus was this little salamander we found by our car in the parking lot. It lives near streams and waterfalls and wanders around in the moss and rocks. He is a cute little guy.

Message for Matthew

It was our nephew Matthew's birthday yesterday, and we thought we'd celebrate by posting these videos we made for him.

Their coolness was too massive for us to post them ON the blog, so the above link will take you to them.

And if you're worried that it's late, just remember that in Russia, it is terrible bad luck to wish someone happy birthday too early.
So, Happy Birthday, Matthew!

We love you and miss you!
