Pheasant Hunting

Tristan and I went pheasant hunting with my friend Nick and his Dad. We ended up with 11 birds. This was Tristan's first time hunting pheasants. Last time I went was probably 25 years ago!

Spring Break

Tristan is home for spring break. We love having him home! He cooked us an awesome meal tonight: Marinated seared ahi tuna steaks with dipping sauce, asian rice, garlic roasted green beans, sparkling grape juice. 
Chef Tristan
It was even better than it looks...
Tristan after a day spent pounding the pavement in downtown Milwaukee in search of a summer internship. They really should hire him just for how good he looks.
Tristan definitely understands the "break" part of spring break! This was one of his 2 hour naps after 12 hours of sleep! His schedule at school is so grueling that we love spoiling him and letting him sleep.

 It is still winter- will spring ever come? This is the picture above our bed, It is what I dream about- summer and the beach!
   We had a cultural evening on Friday... Gene and Sharon O. invited a bunch of their friends over for a light supper. Gene had us all sing many golden oldies from before my time! I guess I am not so old after all:) Then we went to a barbershop quartet performance. I wasn't too sure about going but I am so social I had to go. Actually I was pretty amazed and impressed! Saturday we were in Illinois ( Dave's old stamp'n grounds) for the funeral of a faithful man. He died very unexpectedly at the age of 60. It is a good reminder that life is very fragile and uncertain. Sunday was 2 meetings and then out to eat with good friends and some good laughs!

We celebrated my 29th birthday once again! We met the kids at the Wilderness Resort in Wisconsin Dells for the weekend. We stayed in a great condo and the water parks were fun but there were more people than there was water! Younguk, Hyesoo, Minzie and Minah joined us on Saturday for the day. It was wonderful to spend time with family. We really are enjoying our adult children and we are glad they seem to be enjoying us also! Tristan had his usual 36 hour weekend but Shane and Nikelle were able to spend all three nights with us.
Minzie is fascinated with phones and carried on a lengthy one sided conversation.....                      
Beautiful Minah Grace with her wild hair!                                                                                                 
The birthday "girl" and the "kids".                                                                                                              
The rest of the group getting ready to feast on Dave's famous spaghetti.                                            
Sunday we ate at Moosejaw and Shane interacted with the moose??!!
