Kayelin Violet Giles

Our baby girl is finally here!! She was born on Saturday August 22 at 11:00pm. She weighed 7.2 lbs and was 19inch long. She has been a precious new addition to our family and we are so excited to have her in our lives!

Joshua turns Two

It's hard to believe that my baby is now a toddler who can walk and talk and be a little person. The time goes by way too fast!

Unwelcome visitors

We had notice some bees trying to make a little home over by an outside vent. So after trying a couple of different sprays to kill them off, which didn't work, so we tried to cover their hole to trap them in hopes of them dying inside. The first time didn't work and so Ben tried again the night before he went on a business trip. After having plugged it a second time he went to read about how you shouldn't do that. We woke up to Bee's that decided to find an exit in our house. needless to say we had to get an exterminator and have mass clean up of bees! We learned an expensive lesson that day!

The Ape Caves


There are a set of Lava tubes close to Mt St Helens that we have been wanting to check out for quite some time. So we decided to go camping for the weekend and go exploring. It was really fun except for it being a little too cold and long for Joshua otherwise we had a good time!

4th Anniversary

Ben and I went to a little town called Seaview in Wa that is just outside Astoria, OR for our Anniversary. We stayed in a bed and breakfast that had WONDERFUL food. I love the anticipation of good food. We had a great time together and it was nice to get away before baby number 2 came along.
