Did I ask you if you wanted to buy a house?

I don't know if this link to the virtual tour will work..... we are currently the 3rd house down.

Did I ever tell you this lame story?

So Tainui was on a baseball team last year that ended up benching him a lot for some odd reason (he was plenty good in baseball to have been playing)--we think he was penalized for going on a family trip to New Zealand for a couple of weeks at the beginning of the season. Then at the end of the season they did the whole...hey what do the boys want, trophies or sweatshirts? I thought...for thirty bucks...neither....but the team decided to get sweatshirts. So I shelled out the $30 and found this lame sweatshirt on our doorstep weeks later. It didn't even have a team logo on it, it was plain with our name spelled terribly wrong...so we ended up donating it. Hopefully someone with the last name 'Wahonga' goes to DI and wants a blue hoodie with their name on it.


Tama found a car with his name on it....or a sticker of a type of drums...:)

Wanna buy a house?

Great views of the beautiful Northwest backdrop!

Here is a partial shot of the patio wtih the firepit and the forest in the background.

Here is a shot from the other side with the view below to Fall City...or the blanket of fog...whatever happens to be out at the moment.

The finished sportcourt, complete with wildlife next to the forest....can you spot the deer?

Voila! A wonderful home with much love put into it. It will be hard to leave but we look forward to a new chapter in our lives. Wish us luck!

my little man tui

I just love hanging out with this little guy.

I ask him what in the world will I do next year when he goes off to school...

Then he smiles really big and gives me a huge hug.....I am actually afraid of how much I will cry that day.

Halloween fun

Tainui keeps up tradition with the rasta ghost (i was one my freshman year at byu with lisa when we went trick or treating in indian hills and crouched down and acted like we were little kids....pretty desperate for some sweets)

Taz as an overly excited vampire.

Tama a la Harry Potter casting a spell

Teina...one of the easiest costumes ever but boy was he frustrated wearing it all night, not the easiest thing to see through.

Tui as his favorite halloween costume of all time, well, so far in his 4 years of life. scooby dooby doo...what is that bunching action?

Tainui is enjoying playing with some old school mates from Bellevue, and his coaches are great!
