Brendemuhl Family Reunion

Dayton and Abigail have come to visit several times but this time Dayton, Abigail, Ronen, Trey and Deborah all came to visit and so we had our first Brendemuhl Family Reunion, very cool :)
Dayton, Abigail and Ronen got here first.  I hadn't seen Ronen since he was eight days old and none of the rest of the family had ever seen Ronen.  He is beautiful!!! He got held just about every minute he was here.
 Uncle Quentin
 Aunt Sarah changing Ronen's diaper.

 My boys made Ronen a Ronan gun while he was driving up the ALCAN to see us.
 Dayton took a turn homeschooling his brother and sister -in - laws.   Probability and statistics :)
Sarah cleaned up early and Dayton taught her to cash out while she was ahead :)

 It was close but Dayton beat even Sarah.
 They were playing for M&Ms and Dayton closed out the homeschooling session by teaching them to calculate and weigh out their winnings.

 Uncle Caleb

 We were working on a few projects around the house.

 Dayton supervised :)
 Paul flew out to Anchorage to pick up Trey and Deborah and we all headed to the Airport to greet them.
And play while we waited for their arrival.


Deborah
 

Trey and Deborah, what a beautiful couple!!!
 The city is replacing the water lines and they got to our house.
 I wanted to get a family picture so we all headed outside.  The boys played in the mud while everyone gathered... they got sucked in and couldn't get out.  Dayton to the rescue!!!

21st Anniversary

There are no restaurants in Nondalton so every year the kids decorate a room for us and make us a delicious meal for our anniversary.

Sarah made some delicious appetizers for us. 
With both Abigail and Deborah off enjoying married life Quentin, Joshua and Anna took over making the fancy meal for us.


It was delicious!
Our waiters and waitress were very handsome in their fine clothes.

Summer Fishing

We took some time to go fishing a few times this summer.
 Supper is much better when you go out and catch it fresh.

 Fishing is very tiring :)
 Oh, to be young enough to be able to sleep anywhere.
 Salmon turning red which means they are ready to lay their eggs.
 We also went out and got our annual Red Salmon harvest.


Everyone was eager to try out our new toy.  We got a vacuum packer to put the salmon in before we freeze it.

A couple of the kids went underwater and acted like fish to try out the GoPro Joshua got for his birthday.

Summer Work

Here are a few photos of our summer projects.
Paul and Quentin spent quite a lot of time in the shop working on 4 wheelers, boats, planes and anything else that needed fixing.






 
Joshua on the roof giving the windows some much needed paint.
 Benjamin and Sarah are helping out painting the porch.
 Quentin is thinking about all the work to be done.
 Paul gave a flight review to a neighbor in his Beaver float plane.



We are still eating food out of the garden. Praise Yah for His abundance!






With Abigail and Deborah both gone Sarah is eager to take up the slack.  She made sure I knew this was her first time taking something out of the oven by herself.
