10 Months Old - a Beautiful Day - a Sick Kid

Zachy is 10 months old today. He is about 21 and a half pounds and 31", he started crawling while we were in Penticton and now he loves chasing his sister and cousin around. He is quite kamikazee, climbing over everything. He now says "mama" and "dada". And of course, still loves his food! *correction: I weighed him today, he is actually 22 lbs 10 oz. yikes!

Yesterday was a beautiful day, the sun was shining and we were able to spend most of the day outside. We were at Logan's 3rd Birthday party in the morning and then went over to the Petersen's for a swim in the pool and a BBQ for dinner. It was a great day.

Zachy all partied out

Uncle Ian and Auntie Megs with Abs, I think these ladies are happy to have Uncle Ian home.

Miss Abby has been sick this week, she has tonsillitis, poor girl. Trying to get the medicine into her is quite the ordeal, if you have any suggestions, I'll gladly take them. She seems to be perking up though, so that is good, but she says her throat still hurts. It is no fun having a sick kid!

Well that is about all from Gallitown, it is another beautiful day, so I think we will try and spend some more time outside today.

2009 Youth Group Camping Trip

This past weekend we took the youth group camping. We had 14 kids, 10 leaders and and a couple of munchkins. It was awesome. The weather cooperated (except for 45 minutes late Friday night) and everything went smoothly. We played lots of game including beach volleyball, swimming, football, horseshoes and more and I am feeling the effects of them now. I am not 20 anymore. Here are some pictures of the weekend:

Here is the whole gang including Grizzly, Brad and Tara's dog

What a good looking couple

How many people do you think the Betty-Lou mini-van can take to the bathroom? The correct answer is 14.

Chuck E Cheese

We went to Chuck E Cheese last night for the first time, and it was a great experience. We went with Mike and Megan, had some pizza, played some games, and Abby got a few prizes. We had a lot of fun.
