Family Reunion

Well, we had a great trip down to Welling last week. We were able to go home for almost a whole week. My sister Mallory got married to Cody Peacock, which was the reason for the visit.

My mom figured since we were all coming home, we could have a reunion for a couple of days as well. It was a great idea. We got to see my sister's family who we haven't seen for a year and a half, so that was awesome. It was a really fun trip.

We went to the Birds of Prey centre in Coaldale. It was actually pretty interesting and the kids seemed to really enjoy it. We also rented the Stake Campground for the afternoon, where they have a water slide on the hill and a huge camp kitchen. It was really nice.

We spent a whole day up in Waterton. I haven't been since High School, and it had been even longer for Trevor. It was a good day of easy hikes for the kids and of course ice cream and a stroll around town.

We had a really great few days. We were going to come home Wednesday morning, but decided to stay all day and drive in the evening at Tyler's bedtime. That was the best decision ever. He slept the whole way home.

Here's some pictures of our great weekend in Welling.

Tyler loves Bubbles! Thanks Grandma and Grandpa.

Tyler was not such a big fan of the waterslide, and continued to cry for the remainder of that activity.

Tyler loved feeding the ducks with everyone and chasing them around.

Spencer was the only kid brave enough to hold the ducks like the adults.

This is Scott and Mandy's boy Cason. He is so happy and so cuddly!

Here's the happy couple at the dance.

Here's Tiff and Chad's baby Morgan! He is such a cute little guy
Thank you to everyone for making our visit so much fun!! Love you all.

Summer Finally Arrived

Well, this is the longest I've gone without doing a post so far. The weather has finally been nice, until today, so we have been busy doing more stuff. The mosquitos are ridiculous this year, which sucks, but what do you do?

Trevor's been having fun at the race track on his bike, and is starting to be pretty quick. He is doing some adjustments on the bike today and tomorrow, in hopes that it runs even better for him this Saturday when he goes out. Tyler and I went and watched him again the other day, and it was pretty fun. We met a couple who are actually from Welland, Ontario, where Steve is serving. They are living her now for work, but still own a place there that they rent out. They were really nice.

We went to Capital Ex to see Sloan perform. They weren't very good, which was disappointing. They have some good songs, but they just seemed to be off that night or something. We decided to walk around and check out the Carnies and have some treats. It was pretty fun.

I decided that it was time to go short with my hair again. Tyler thought that it was fun to grab a handful on each side and pull on it as hard as he could whenever I would hold him. Now, he snuggles up and plays with the shorter hair in the back while he falls asleep. It is so nice.

We went to the park the other day with some of Trevor's family. Tyler had a great time.

About a month ago, I went to the Valley Zoo for mine and Tyler's first time. He wasn't too interested in many of the animals, but he seemed to really like the seals and the lemurs. We got to see Lucy the elephant right up close. They were taking her for a walk, so that was pretty cool. Tyler fell asleep in the wagon on the way back to the car at the end of the day, which was also pretty entertaining.
