What We Have Been Up Too...

The last few weeks have been kinda crazy, but, they are not going to slow down. We have been busy traveling from parents houses to parents houses, friends houses to friends houses, etc.... This last weekend Mark traveled to San Antonio for a National Speech Competition that one of his students from Saipan Community School participated in... and I was in Boise, Idaho, surprising one of my best friends with a bachelorette party. She gets married on July 10, so more pictures to come from those to events! Congrats Sara and John!

Well here are some snap shots of what we have been up too:

On June 7th, Suz, Mark and I attended my dads church in Spokane to visit with some friends from Saipan, the Kimball family is here in the states traveling all over the country visiting friends and churches.... It was fun having a piece of Saipan here!Mark and I got stuck in a freak storm where it rained, hailed and the temperature dropped to 46 degrees. Needless to say we had the seat heaters and the main heaters on in the car =). Right After Mark and I arrived home from Saipan, our Niece Emilie, my sisters daughter from Texas, joined us for two weeks.... It was fun getting to see her and watching mark and her get to know eachother....While she was here my family, minus my brother Andy, took a day trip to Leavenworth, a bavarian village about 4 hours from Spokane....




Also while Emilie was here, she was able to get down to Sawyer Farm and learn how to ride a four-wheeler and drive a tractor.... and I got to take in some of the beautiful palouse scenery... Oh I miss it here, it is so beautiful, especially when the wheat colors are starting to change...

Emilie and Uncle Mark.The Shop and the Machine Shed.

The House that Mark and I will be tearing down in the next year or so and where we will begin to build our dream home.... this is a few years off, but next year for sure we will be building the shop/apartment....

A beautiful Lentil Field... they are much bigger now... =)Farmer Sawyer relaxing...Our Kitty Boarder, hanging out!

Well as I said before, our Summer will not be slowing down anytime soon.... In an hour or so we are headed to Marks sister's Angela's house to play with the kids for the evening.... then this weekend we are headed to Marks other Sister, Suz's house for the 4th of July weekend....

Then Tuesday we are headed back to Boise to help prepare for Sara and John's wedding that Friday, Then the next weekend we are headed to Denver for 4 days, 2 for Young Life and then 2 for sight seeing just the two of us.... Then back to Spokane where My oldest brother Tom and nephew Aaron will be visiting, and then I fly back to Saipan.... so the summer is quickly flying by, but we are having a blast!

For it's 1, 2, 3 Strikes Your Out at the Old Ball Game!

It's been a few weeks since I really have done much on here, but here is a quick look at the Mariners game the Sawyer family went to on June 2. Hence the reason of the title of this post, they did not win, and the game was so quick, 2 hours... BUT it was a blast hanging out with the family, drinking $7.50 beers, and eating delicious Garlic Fries =). Enjoy!
