Colby started Taekwondo a couple of months ago and is doing really well. He has already advanced to his yellow belt and will be testing for his orange belt tomorrow. He attends a dojo here in Prosser a couple of days a week. It is very cool because not only are they teaching him about taekwondo, but they are also teaching them how to listen, follow directions and respect for others. It has been fun to watch him participate.

Yellowstone National Park.

While vacationing at Island Park in Idaho we decided that we may never get that close to Yellowstone again, so we should make the short drive to see Old Faithful. A couple of car loads of us headed out. It was fun because we got to take Ryan's cousin Haley with us (Haley is Ryan's cousin Rickie's little girl). Not only was I not the only girl in the car, but it was fun to have someone who has been there many times to give us the grand tour.

Ice Cream at the Yellowstone General Store

Pritchett family reunion.

I know I'm a little slow at posting this, but over the 4th of July weekend we went to Island Park Idaho for Ryan's Mom's side of the family reunion. If you have never been to Island Park, it is about 20 miles from the west entrance of Yellowstone National Park. Very Cool!!!! We took off at 7am on July 3rd and drove straight threw. It took us about 10 hrs. I have to say that I was very thankful for all of the modern electronics that kept the boys entertained.

The reunion consisted of Ryan's Mom and her sister Sandy's families. All of Ryan's siblings made it except for Cory and all of Sandy's kids made it except for Ryan's cousin Casey. It was quite a crew.

Ryan's cousin Ricky has a vacation house there that sets on the dog leg of the 3rd hole of the Golf course. Yes I said golf course and Ryan was in heaven. They golfed every day and when they were not golfing they were betting on the poor golfers making their approaches to the green.

It was a great time and we loved catching up with cousins we don't get to see very often. Already looking forward to next time.
