Weekend away for Mark's 60th Birthday

I just wanted to put the pictures up and will write more this week once I have some more time. The Snelling clan went away for the weekend to celebrate Mark's 60th and we had a great time. We rented a house on Vaughn, down near Shelton. It was a beautiful weekend and we had a great time playing games and eating great food. Lots of pictures to look at, but worth it. More commentary to come later.

Jacob's 4th Grade play-Lewis and Clark

We went to jacob's 4th grade play on Wednesday, March 17th. He was a buffalo and had a small speaking part. He did a great job and it was fun to watch.

He had a funny line in the play, which fits him well.

His cousin, Isabelle came, and then we all went out for ice cream afterwards at Dairy Queen. It has become a tradition that we go there after any play or school event that the kids are in.

Playing Hockey at Showare Center in kent, WA

Jonah's hockey team went to Showare center and played a game on the ice prior to watching a professional game. They were all so excited to get dressed in the locker rooms and play on the ice in the huge arena. Grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins came to watch and Jonah got to play goalie, which was his first time. Just getting dressed is an undertaking because you have to put even more gear on. It was fun to watch.

He had a great time taking the 1/2 hour just to get everything on. We made sure to ask him if he needed to use the bathroom before he suited up.

He did really well on the ice and blocked a lot of shots. Even though he loves playing other positions on the ice, he said he would play goalie again.

I know it is hard to tell, but it is Jonah.

Grandma and Grandpa LeRoy came and stayed for the game afterwards along with everyone else.

We all had time to run to lunch afterwards before the game started. It was a fun day. Jonah was on cloud 9.

Always the party animals. It was also child appreciation day so they had a bumpy house and a lot of other activities out front, but most importantly, they gave away free hot dogs, pop, and chips to all the kids.

Jacob got a dragon tattoo, which he thought was awesome

Thomas was wide-eyed watching all the action before we went in.

There come the professional players and all of Jonah' s team watched in amazement.

Jonah and some of his team mates.

After the game started, they snuck down front to watch for awhile. They did get reminded later by the staff that their seats were up farther. It was a great end to the weekend and Jonah was so glad to have his family around supporting him.
