Kenyon Update

New tricks this month.

He climbs on everything.

He got a new tooth on the top. We call it his snagle tooth.

Did I mention he climbs on everything?? Even the wipes box if it happens to be lying on the ground.

He loves sunglasses. He tries to pull them off mom and dad and put them on his own face.

No he's not helping with the dishes, he's climbing.

Logan's Baptism Day

Yesterday Logan was baptized. We are so proud of him. Thanks to all those who were able to make it and we missed the ones that weren't there - we know you would have been had you been able to. Here is some pictures to share our day with you.

Logan's 8!!

We can't believe he's been with us 8 years already. We love this boy so much. He is such a blessing to our family. He has a contagious smile and is a great big brother to his brother and sisters. Here's a quick look at how much he's grown.

This is is first day with us. Can't believe he was ever that small.

Fabulous 4th Fun

Yeah to the Faveraus for planning a 4th BBQ and Swim Party! We love spending time with Jeff's side of the family. We ate great hamburgers - grilled by Michael, pasta salad - made by Kim, and Jill's yummy carrot cake!
For the fireworks, we went to a green belt near a church.
Ashleigh made friends out of strangers and bummed a piece of pizza off them.
And sat on Uncle Don's lap to "oo" and "ah".
Kenyon was entertained by dad,
and Aunt Alayne - gotta love her, always willing to hold the babies!
Paul and Makenzie were in awe,
and Logan seemed a little bored.
Our hosts Michael and Kim - Thanks again.
We had a great time and only melted a little bit.

June Update

We had a great June. Not having a pool we utilize the public pools, family & friends' pools - Thanks grandma, Aunt Jill, Barb, LaDawn, and Sonnet. We are grateful for their willingness to invite us over to invade their house. Here are some highlights.

Logan and Makenzie are becoming quite the swimmers. Makenzie is comfortable enough to swim around the shallow end of the pool and Logan jumps in at the deep end. Ashleigh, who last year would jump in without even making sure you would catch her, is more timid this year and would rather eat Cheetos by the pool side.

June was a great month for the kids to play outside. It was unusually cool and we took advantage of that.

For Father's Day we had a special visit from Ompa Greg and Oma Cathy. They brought their dog Shotzi and the kids really enjoyed her. Ashleigh and Kenzie really love to cuddle with Grandma Cathy.

Jeff got a microphone for Guitar hero for Father's Day and quickly got back to rocking it out. Even though he wasn't playing lullabies he still lulled Kenyon to sleep.

As you can see it was a very busy and tiring month - our baby boy couldn't even eat his lunch without falling asleep.
