The Great Outdoors

Kent had this past Saturday off, so we thought we'd hit up the Olympic National Park. It was beautiful there! It was a little colder than we anticipated, though, but the boys did really well. We hiked just over 3 miles total, and Taylor didn't complain until the very end- I was actually quite impressed. Of course the little Starburst bribe didn't hurt.

Here's Erik attempting to contract some good ol' giardia.

It was amazing how long the boys just sat throwing rocks in the stream.

The one good picture that we managed to get of all of us... and even then Erik's still not cooperating.

And for those of you who are still curious, yes, we found out it's a girl. I'm tired of having that nasty pink that doesn't match on my blog.

Slowly But Surely...

...I will get this blog updated.
While my mom was here, Kent and I were able to go up to Seattle without the kids. It was great. Here's the only picture in which I'm not in the middle of talking and I don't look drunk. Behind us is Seattle- we took a ferry from Seattle to the other side of the Puget Sound.

Taylor, Erik, my mom, Kimberly, and I went to Tolmie state park while they were here. It was finally warm enough to validate going to the beach.

Then there was graduation. Chris graduated from residency, and Kent and Chad graduated from intern year.

That will have to do for now. I only have so much patience to upload so many pictures. But my apologies for taking so long to post what the baby is. I only intended to wait 1 day before revealing whether it was a boy or girl.

Roughin' It

Okay, so it's been about a month since our last post. My apologies. Not only have I been lazy, but our laptop has been acting up. We really have been doing stuff.

My mom and little sister, Kimberly, were here visiting. So we took them camping! It was great. Taylor LOVES camping and would live out in the wilderness if he could. The campsite that we went to had an archery range there and you could borrow a bow and arrows to use. Taylor tried so hard and didn't do too bad.

I think I'll take up archery. Don't I look quite dangerous?

Poor Taylor. He wanted to catch a fish so badly, but they just weren't biting.

They even had paddle boats that you could use. Kimberly insisted her legs weren't tired and that she could do it all by herself. So I graciously complied.

Erik liked camping enough. He just had a hard time with all the uneven surfaces since he's not very good at walking on flat surfaces.

We had a great time. It was a little chilly, and there were raccoons at night, but it's always worth it when you get to eat camping food and smores!

More posts to follow later. I can only do so much at once. But we did find out what the baby is...
