The Month in Review

Ok, once again, I'm a lazy bum and didn't get to this sooner. I blame the kids and the constant whirlwind they cause around here. There is always something going on, especially since it's summer in Kodiak, which calls for a LOT of being outdoors and not so much being inside on the computer. YAY!

May 28

Gabriel likes to sit on the porch to eat his afternoon snack.

What'chu talkin' 'bout, Willis?

Went to Griffin's for a fire pit and my boys jumped on the trampoline.

Gabriel was a tired boy, but he loves to swing.

His first smore

Snugglin' with momma

Peek a boo, I see you!

Playing in the cabinet

Cheesy pose with momma

I'll let you out, Snowflake!
June 6

I think we have one like this from when G was just 3 1/2 months old.

Eat my finger, Daddy!
June 7: National Trails Day

Just one of the reasons I love it here. There is water on the opposite side of those trees as well, you just can't see it very well in the picture.

Don't the kids look thrilled?

Just chillin'.

Gabriel is now the ultimate flirt. Here is he winking at me. Look out girls! I've got a lady killer.

June 11

Our first family trip to the touch tank. I see a lot more visits in our future. Gabriel loved watching the fish and crab in the aquarium.

Melissa and her brood joined us.

G loves to be chased and Eli love to chase him.

June 15: Father's Day

For Father's Day we joined a lot of friends at a local beach for a bonfire. Offroading to get to the site. Turned out to be the wrong one though, so we had to back out and go to the next area. Oh well, it was fun anyway.

Notice the directions say to assemble on a hard level surface.

Hey, guys? Can you read directions? Hmm...

Having fun.

She loves rocks. One day that will change to the clear, shiny kind.

Our setup

The boys cookin' dinner. It was delicious.

I think they are in two different seasons. They had fun though.

Gabriel kept trying to eat the rocks.

Princesses at play

Bronwyn gave Donavyn some salmon jerky for teething. She LOVED it!

Aww...aren't we sweet? This was our potty spot. heh. Seriously.

Love this picture of them. And yes, Becca does always have her camera around her neck.

The boys headed off for a walk. We women followed along.

Little miss has her first tooth

What a cutie.
June 23

Jesse, Abbie and Jack arrived on the ferry! YAY! Too bad I don't have any pictures of that. I was too busy catching up.

We love the monkey on his back. That way he can walk around and not get too far away. And it doesn't look like a leash.

Gabriel had fun chasing after the big kids. This is Sagan, she lives down the street and her daddy works with Zach.

June 25

Mean momma was trying not to let her eat it.

See the marks on the paper? I obviously failed.
June 29

She likes to chase me, calling for "ma-mam". Yup, mamam was her first word! Yippee skippy!

June 30

She's almost walking, too.

Great pics at least those that would load...somewhat of a slow connection at the campground....glad you're enjoying your summer.

Becca and Jason said...

Great pictures! Love the one of G with the dirt on his face; and you weren't kidding when you said D didn't want to hold her sign on her 9-month-day!
Oh, and I actually don't hate that pic of me and J!

Mary said...

Great pictures! It's nice to see some fun outdoor Kodiak pictures. You guys all look great! I can't believe how big the kids are getting and how well you capture their personality in your pictures! Give them a big squeeze from us. Miss you.

Love all the photos. Can't believe how big those babies are getting! I'm so glad the summer weather is allowing you all to enjoy the beautiful outdoors. Love you bunches! Delinda

I think I just freaking died from cute overload.


Okay, wow. Not only do you get to hang with the coolest Coastie Chicks in Alaska, but your kids are the funniest, bright spirited, beautiful creatures to grace this Earth. You are so so blessed, and I can't tell you how happy I am to watch your family grow.

Also, the Willis comment made me spit my water out from giggling so hard. Her expression was priceless <3

Awww, yeah, I'm so glad to see some new pics! You guys look fantastic and the kids are growing so fast!
