Abby at the Zoo and the YG Camping Trip

This past weekend was awesome. Abby spent the weekend with her Grandma and Grandad and Chrissy and I were on the Youth Group Camping Trip.

Abby got to spend some quality time with her Grandma and Grandad. They took great care of her and even took her to the zoo! Abby got an up close look at Lucy the Elephant. Lucy was out on a walk. Here are some pictures from her weekend:



Chrissy and I went to Willey West Campground in Drayton Valley with the Youth Group. We had fun playing Volleyball, swimming and just hanging out with the kids. We have a GREAT group of kids that come on the trip and they make it so much fun. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time! Here are some pictures of the camping trip:

Abby's Big Girl Room

This past week we have transformed our storage room upstairs into Abby's new Big Girl room. With Galli Jr. on it's way in about two months we figured it was time for Abs to make the transition out of her crib and into a Big Girl bed.

We want to say a HUGE thank you to Steve and Sue for their help and to the Grandparents for their contributions to the room!



Here are some before and after pictures of the room. The new room, as you would easily guess knowing Abby, is PINK and virtually 100% IKEA



I'll leave you with a picture of Abby & Chrissy and one of Chrissy the Bear.

30 down ... 10 to go

Today marks 30 weeks, only 10 more to go. WOO HOO!!!
I'm getting excited, but also anxious, I keep thinking about everything that needs to get done before the baby comes. Yikes!
We're getting there though. This week we've been working on Abby's new room, and by we, I mean Bri, Steve & Sue, (I can't really help with the painting). The second coat went up tonight, and the room is now pink. We hope to have it all set up on the weekend, so stay tuned for pictures.

I'll leave you with a belly pic comparison. The first one is at 30 weeks this time around, the second is at 31 weeks with Abby. Quite the difference:



And I can't really post a blog without a pic of Abby, so here is one of Bri, Abby, Sue & Ally:

Canmore 2008

This past weekend we went to Canmore camping with Brad, Tara and Jack. We also hung out a bit with Dwight, Tracy and Josh who stayed at a cool motel in the Canmore Village. The main reason we went was so I could play golf at 2 amazing golf courses.

On Saturday we played the Stewart Creek golf course. Brad, Dwight, my Dad (who drove down just to golf) and I. Stewart Creek was the most amazing course I have ever played. It is now my favorite course.

On Sunday the four of us played the Kananaskis - Mount Kidd course. It was also a very awesome course.

Camping was alot of fun. We don't get to hang out with Brad and Tara much so it was alot of fun just hanging out by the fire, playing cards and watching the kids play together. Here are a bunch of pictures from the campground and from the pool at Dwight and Tracy's motel.
