Ty raced at Dayton Days this weekend. He had a ton of supporters. Grandma and Grandpa, Ryan and Kelly, Jon and Kelly, Becca and Andy were there with Katie and us of course. He had a whole cheering section. In his first race he got the hole shot but wrecked and couldn't quite catch up. In the main he finished first by a long shot. He was so proud and so was Casey. I asked Casey if this was his first thought when he found out we were having a boy and he said yes. They went riding Sunday at the track also. Casey enjoys working on the track with the tractor so that the kids have fun and have new stuff to ride. It's pretty fun to watch.

Ali had her first ER visit Friday. 3 hours later she was liquid stitched up and ready to play. We think she fell on the edge of the slate steps out back. She is such a tough little cookie.

Casey took ty out grouse hunting. All day and one grouse later here he is proud as ever. He's a real hunter you know. He even ate it for dinner.

We entered the business in the Walla Walla Fair and Frontier Days Parade. We all had a fun time preparing for and being in the parade. Shana and her kids helped pass out candy and flyers along with our part-time employee Steve and his family. Ali rode in a wagon with a ton of candy and Ty was running back and forth from the wagon with handfulls of candy and the parade goers as fast as his little legs could go. The toilet we made had a working pump spewing water out the bowl to make it look plugged. It was so cute. The crown loved it.

This is Ty on his first day of school. He is loving it. He has several friends that live just a couple houses down. He is so happy to have buddies to play with. He was a little worn out by this weekend and came down with a little stuffy nose. I'm sure he'll get used to it. I can't believe he's getting so big. I'm definitely having a harder time than he is.
