Swimming Update

He is starting to grow gills!!! Luke is really catching onto this swimming stuff. Good thing I got this video when I did because shortly after he had a major meltdown in the pool with his instructor and I had to pull him out of the pool before his lesson was over (ignore the other mothers in the background chatting it up). :)


We had a great time on Halloween. Everyone came over after the BSU game and had dinner, then we took Payton, Luke and Eva out trick-or-treating around the neighborhood. It was crazy fun! The pictures are a little fuzzy but you get the idea. I was very ambitious this year and made Luke's costume. It was a lot of work but turned out cute.

Pumpkin Carving

Luke had a little too much fun carving the pumpkins. His own little one was so destroyed that it had to be thrown away but the fun in doing it was totally worth it.

Trip to Linder Farms

We went to Linder Farms for the pumpkin patch, but they had lots of other fun things to do also. Luke had a blast even though it was windy and cold. We got great pictures of everything except the pumpkin patch (go figure!).

Cute Kids!

Can't believe it has been over a month since I updated our blog. I have not been on my computer forever. I guess because I don't have a lot to report. Lauren is growing and growing. Her smiles get bigger everyday. Luke is still refusing to potty train. Just put him on the potty this morning and he didn't go. Then 5 minutes later he pees all over the floor. They say no child ever went to kindergarten in diapers, but I have my doubts about my son! Anyway hope all is well with everyone.

Milestone Photos

Here are Luke's 3 year pics and Lauren's 2 month pics. Enjoy!

Oregon Coast 2009

We had a great time at the coast this year. Went to the aquarium, ate at Mo's, did some fishing and crabbing, golfed, and of course played at the beach. The beach house had a ping pong table which entertained the kids and it had a fire pit so we did some marshmallow roastin'.

We hit the family reunion and the boys had a blast. They played in the creek and caught a crawdad (yipee!). On the way home we stopped in Hermiston and stayed at a hotel. Luke and Payton had sooo much fun playing in the pool. It was also Lauren's first pool experience.


Luke's 3rd Birthday

I can't believe he is 3!!! I will let the pictures tell how much fun we had that day.

We even had family here from Austria. They had fun. Klaus had never been bowling before.

We surprised Luke with his own train set at the end of the day. Ryan built the table and I helped paint it. Ryan, his dad and his brother assembled the whole thing. It turned out really great!

Happy Independence Day!

We had a blast on the 4th of July. Ryan drove his truck in the parade and Luke and Payton got to throw candy out of the back. Luke didn't care where he threw it, he just wanted to throw it (even when there were no people around). We had to save a few pieces to throw to Eva, because we ran out not even half way through the parade route. Next year we have to invest in LOTS more candy
