We heard you missed us, you really really missed us so we are back by popular demand. We know you can't get enough of us Blumklotz folk, so we are back in the saddle and ready to regale you with the details of our lives. Since you haven't heard from us since the beginning of 2008 there is a lot of catching up to do. How 'bout we just give you the summer highlights. The photo above is of Beth and Kathe in Sunriver, a beautiful resort community in Central Oregon. We spent a week there celebrating Grammy's 70th birthday. One of the highlights, as you can imagine was the horses!!!! If you ever get the chance to talk to Ike on the phone his favorite thing to say is, "Big horsies, Sunriver, black one..." Is pretty cute...
Here we all are in beautiful Sunriver!
After Sunriver we returned to Portland to celebrate two special birthdays - Ike's and America's. Here are Ike, Kathe and Jason getting the cupcakes ready.
Here is the birthday boy enjoying his cake!
Out here in the Wild West it is not only legal for regular folks to set off fireworks, it is encouraged and Monroe St did not want to miss out on the fun. Here are Jason and Jordan getting ready to ignite our arsonal of dangerous and frightening fireworks.
Even small children are allowed to play with fire in Portland! Check out Kathe with her sparklers! She was a little nervous at first (see photo w/ Grammy below), but once she got the hang of it here was no stopping her!
Later on all the neighborhood kiddos (the Monroe St Mafia) came over with glowy sticks. Since it was still pretty light outside, Jason took them all to the bathroom to see if the glowy sticks really worked!
