Salmon Fishing 2015

We had an awesome salmon run this year.  The fish counters counted more than three times the number of fish coming up the river this year as compared to the averages the last several years.
Quentin put together this year's video. It has more of an artistic flair than just a straight documentary of us catching and processing fish.  Enjoy!
If you get this in an email and the video doesn't show up, click here to watch it.

Tazimina River to the Falls

We took off on a beautiful day up the Tazimina River.  As you can see the boys are ready for any bears we might encounter :)
Everyone stopped to play on a sandbar while Quentin, Anna, Lavonne and I kept going up river to see how far we could get.  Normally the river isn't high enough and we'd never gone all the way to the falls.  Today, the river was high enough.  
Quentin did a great job avoiding the rocks and we made it all the way to the falls.
 Anna hung out in the bow taking pictures.
The falls were awesome and it was a pretty cool ride getting there.
 We had a great time playing and swimming.

 Nondalton is nestled under the mountains along the lake.

 Benjamin turned 9 and Anna made some delicious treats to celebrate.

Trey and Deborah's Wedding Slideshow

I took the best of the pictures from Trey and Deborah's wedding and put them to two of the songs they played/had sung at their wedding.
The wedding was so beautiful and they are such a handsome couple I had lots of fun putting it together.

Salmon Fishing 2014

I was setting up a list on the sidebar of my favorite videos we've made over the years.  As I was doing that I recognized there were two that I never did post.
The first I'll post here is from the summer of 2014.  We had a great time harvesting and processing our salmon and Quentin put together a video showing all the fun we had.

Tree Climbing

 We stopped to visit the Martin's on our way back to Nondalton.  The kids decided to climb trees in their front yard.

 Caleb did quite well, but he was a little too short to make it up.

 Quentin, on the other hand, was a little too tall.  He couldn't quite fit between the trees to leverage himself up.
Joshua got a ways up, but couldn't quite reach.
 Anna has always been an avid and able tree climber.  I don't see her out climbing trees nearly as often as I used too, but the temptation to show the boys how it's done was just too great...

 She gracefully shinnied up the tree in no time flat.

 Inspired, Joshua stretched like he didn't know he could, and made it up beside her.
 And then past her as he was able to use her as a ladder.
