Joel's Birthday

Yesterday was Joel's birthday. How can you not love this boy? He is so sweet and makes sure that we never take life too seriously. What would we ever do without this adorable little red-head?
He made sure to get up nice and early so he could open his presents

He was very excited and surprised about getting a new train set.

His nursery teacher made his Halloween costume for him (prince philip), because he wants to marry Sleeping Beauty. Now he's ready to kiss the girl and propose.

His "Bolt" cake.

This was today; I had to put it on here because he is so cute.


I hope you had a great birthday Joel! We all love you so much. Thank you for being part of our lives.

Field Trip

Darion's Head Start class went on a Field Trip to Rivers Turn Farm. Joel and I were able to go with his class. The kids were all so cute and we had so much fun. We learned and got to experience all sorts of fun things.

The kids got to feed bamboo to the horses.
They had a HUGE gravel pit that Farmer John let us play in.

Darion took such great care of Joel. He made sure he felt included.

We got to pick and eat all the raspberries we wanted. It was hard to leave this part of the tour. This is Darion and his friend Minh.

We picked apples and ate them right of the trees. They were delicious.

Farmer John let all of the kids each take one pumpkin home. Darion and Minh were very proud of theirs.

Joel was also proud of his. He wanted a little one.

Farmer John let all of the kids pick flowers.

There were dogs that followed the kids around. Joel is our little animal lover. He was more than happy to help take care of the dogs.

Thank you, Darion, for letting us in on the fun! We love you!

Summer Days

It's been a while since our last post, and we've done a lot since. I'm too lazy to try and catch up on everything, so here is the fast version:

A trip to Utah for Garred and Jessica's wedding

The Eugene parade (it was filled with all sorts of crazies)

Family visits and trips to the coast

and having fun with daddy around
