August 30

These pictures are from the beginning of the month when we made a trip up
to Lightning Lakes at Manning Park on BC Day.

The gophers were the highlight of the day.

Feeding them...

Catching them...

And having long conversations with them...

I will forever have great memories when I look at this picture.
This week, I and the kids got together with an 'old' school friend Tanya, and her kids.
It had been 8!! years since we had last seen each other.
And here is a picture from the last time to prove it...

(Josie was napping and the cute boy in the middle is from another friend)

Interesting things that keep kids busy....

Fill pool with water.
Go to the slough and scoop out lots of weeds and junk.
Catch a mini fish or two.
Dump weeds, junk, and fishies into the pool.
Siphon out water with hose over the side of the deck.
Watch the fishies and weeds get sucked up too.

Two of my favorite boys...

We took an overnight trip up to Kamloops.
So excited to find these big horned sheep munching their way along a roadside.
I love their 'love heart' noses :)

August 20

Well hello!  Can you believe it?  A blog post....
Thanks to the prodding of a certain niece :)  You know who you are...

We've had an eventful summer.

First and foremost, we were blessed with the birth of our baby boy,
Linden Jamie, on July 26, 2014.
He weighed 8lb 12oz (3960grams)...
quite the heavyweight for being 2+ weeks early.

Later that same day, we were transferred to Abbotsford Regional Hospital so Linden
could be admitted to the NICU.  He had some fluid in his lungs that concerned the doctors.
After 48 hours, this cleared up on its own, thankfully.  After 6+ days in the hospital
(3 days before he finally made his appearance and 3+ days after), we were SO thankful
to finally go home and see the other kids finally :)

The past few weeks have been a blur of feeding times, burps, diaper changes,
and lots and lots of snuggles...
