Learning to Walk

The boys just keeping getting bigger and I swear they just keep getting cuter. They are now 13 months old and Brock is starting to walk. Both boys can stand up from a sitting position without holding onto anything but Brock is the only one trying to actually walk yet. Sort of interesting since Mason did everything else first. Maybe it was just Brock's turn in the spotlight. He is up to about seven steps at a time on his own now. They also love to give high fives and they like to throw stuff out of the bathtub so they can say "uh oh".

4th of July 2009

We spent the 4th of July this year at the coast. The trip began a little rough with us blowing up the trany in our truck before we even got out of Philomath. Yet again we are in debt to James's brother Arien who drove dad's truck to us and rode home in the tow truck with our truck....we're going to owe him big time. The rest of the weekend actually went pretty well. Not a lot of sunshine but no rain either. James got to go out in the ocean with my dad to get a little fishing and crabbing in. Notice all the helpers around the crab pot. I got in several walks with the boys and we got to enjoy a bunch of fireworks. James also had a couple of very small helpers when it came to fixing a water leak in the trailer. Another great weekend with family and friends.

1st Boating Trip

Well Niki and Mike were nice enough to invite us up to the lake to play in the boat for the day. Little did they know how much fun it would be when nap time rolled around. The boys had a great time the first hour on board until it was nap time that is when the screaming began. They really like driving the boat though. I think maybe Brock was having issues with his borrowed pink life jacket. It just wasn't very manly. Maybe next year we'll get some actual swimming in.
