Summer Fun

The sun is out and the heat is on. After some depressing Summer weather we are now able to enjoy the bright Sunny days!! Here we are chilling over at Heather's house and having a great time watching the cousins play!

Here is a small group picture of the cousins playing in the smallest pool. Joshua wasn't a fan of being in the pool, he liked playing on the outside. Summer, Madison, Skylar, Victoria, and Joshua. We finally got Victoria to go 'swimming' with the rest of the guys.

I just love this quirky picture of Joshua! You can tell that he is related to Ben and I; we are all white as snow in our complexion.

Summer brought out her bubble machine and it was an immediate big hit with Joshua!! It kept him entertained for half of the day!

The other half of the day was the joy of dumping the magic cup in and out of the water. Who knew that such simple things could be so fascinating?

Tinkle Fingers

Joshua has discovered how to play the piano. He has gotten quite to the young Mozart stage perhaps he is far from it, but he thinks his music is beautiful and fun!

Blankie Love

Joshua is starting to favor this blanket and likes to walk around with it. It's fun to watch because he carries it in-between his legs and trips all over it.

Olympic Peninsula

For our Anniversary get away we decided to go to the Olympic Rain Forest. It was a beautiful place and we had a fabulous time and get away! Here we are at the Largest Sitka Spruce in the world!

I just love all of the drooping moss, it was beautiful to discover.

We got to spend a Saturday walking around different trails in the area nearby where we were staying at. It was so fun with just the two of us (Joshua had his first overnighter with the grandparents.) We met a lot of people and a couple that we met paid for our breakfast on Saturday morning which was quite the surprise and very sweet.

We are standing in the center of a large cedar tree that was hollowed out. some of those trees were absolutely humongous!

Three Years and Counting

Ben and I just had our three year anniversary this last week. It has flown by relatively fast with lots of happenings in our lives!! We got married, bought a house, had a baby, and who knows what will happen around the bend! On the whole we still like each other so I think we are doing pretty good!

Family Picnic

Here are some pics that Jennifer took at our Giles family picnic. Poor Joshua was not having a good day at all. Cassidy even tried to make her little friend feel better by trying to play with him, but he was just not in the mood!! The picnic was great and the weather was perfect!

Hair Do's

Joshua had just woken up with this bed-head and I thought that it was sooo cute that I left it in all day. Generally his hair looks really good and I don't have to do too much to it, so I was very thrilled!

Joshua had a bath and I was putting some thick lotion in his hair to help with his itching. Needless to say, I got a little carried away with what one could do with a lotion up baby!!

Off the Well Beaten path

Ben thought that Joshua was getting bored so he decided to liven him up a bit. Joshua loved it, the guys had fun, and I worried how long that poor stroller will last with it's new ownership!

Scenic View

Here is a pic of us on a nice scenic walk that we took when we were up at Whistler Canada. It was really beautiful. We had a great time hanging out with Aaron and Christina and of course our little mumchkin!
