Miss Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo Queen 2020!

     

Congratulations to the beautiful Lindsey Paul as your Miss Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo Queen 2020!
Lindsey Paul is the proud 20 year old daughter of Jason and Dr. Sara Paul of Woodland, Washington. She is currently attending Lower Columbia college to earn her degree in psychology before transferring to Washington State University to complete her four year degree and move on to law school. Outside of school Lindsey enjoys reading, writing, swimming, camping, and spending quality time with her friends and family. She has spent many years attending the Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo and is so excited to have the opportunity to represent Cowlitz County as the 2020 Miss Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo queen with her 16 year old paint mare Madison. Make sure you go and see them this summer the last full weekend in July at the Cowlitz County Fair. Lindsey’s goal this year is to sell out each of the three Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo performances but that can only happen with the help of all of you!

The Casey Family

 

The Alzheimer’s Association, Walk to End Alzheimer’s, is the nation’s largest event to raise awareness and funds to fight Alzheimer’s disease. Their goal is to advance research, treat and prevent Alzheimer’s, and provide programs and support to improve the lives of millions of Americans affected by Alzheimer’s.

This year they had an event at the Children’s discovery museum. It was an activity designed to teach kids ages 1-5 the value and fundamentals of money management like earning, savings, and banking through interactive work and play. Andrea Bruno, Timeless Treasures had reached out to us about the event and we wanted to help with this incredible organization! A wonderful family won our gift certificate that we provided for the event. We enjoyed spending time and getting to know Catherine, Jared, Norah, and Ruby. You guys were so caring, loving, kind and such a joy! Norah and Ruby were so much fun and we were highly entertained that Norah kept popping mom’s bubble gum!! Thank you Catherine and Jared for coming in and letting us capture this fun moment in your life.

Miss Thunder Mountain Rodeo

 

Congratulations to Makenzie Matthews!! On July, 28th 2018 she was crowned your 2019 Miss Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo Queen! Kenzie was born in Longview Washington although she grew up in the quaint town of Grays River, Washington. She attended Naselle Grays River Valley School from kindergarten until she graduated where she was a 4-H member for 13 years and continues to volunteer to this day. Although she entered in other categories at the fair her equine project was always her favorite. She has had an extreme passion for horses from a young age. Kenzie plans to attend as many parades, rodeos, community facilities and events as possible! She plans to promote the western way of life and more specifically, our fantastic Thunder Mountain Rodeo. Here is to the friends to come, the knowledge that will be gained, and the memories to come as she fulfills her duties as Queen Kenzie. Her horse Chey and she hope to see you on their journey as she proudly represents the Thunder Mountain Pro Rodeo.

Carefully remove the bottom of the foil wrapper and cut a hole in the bottom of the chocolate.

FILL up the hollow candy with any condiment that you choose…Mustard, Ketchup, Mayonnaise or even Wasabi!

Better get ready to run once you see someone bite into them!

Prank #2: Peep your friends or families yard…..

Buy some peeps and shish kabob sticks. (Yes, this one may take a bit of time!)Push the kabob sticks into the peeps and stick them all over the yard!

Remember to include a clever sign!Like….. ‘Your peeps say Happy Easter!’

Prank #3: Fill your plastic Easter eggs….

Choose unusual items to place in your plastic Easter eggs!

A few to think about are: Brussel sprouts, carrots, peas, rocks, whip cream, rubber bands, those broken crayons, bottle caps…

Our favorites (!) :GLITTER, A LIVE FROG or an ‘I OWE YOU’ note from the Easter Bunny!!

Prank #4: The Easter Bunny needed a bathroom break…

Use water soluble paint to create what looks like rabbit footprints on your toilet bowl.

Use food coloring to color the water in your bowl!

Remember to close the lid when you are done so the next person gets a big surprise!

Prank #5: Got chocolate?

Yes…. Unwrap each of those chocolate eggs and re-wrap them with grapes inside.

Need we say anymore…….
