Madelyn's First Hike

Just over a month ago we decided to go and check out the waterfall near our house for the first time this summer.  The water was quite low so the waterfall was pretty small.  That did not stop Chase from having a great time throwing rocks in and parking his body in the water for a bit to cool off.  Madelyn seemed to have fun, or as much fun as a newborn baby can have in a sling on a warm day.
Our little hiker.

My two babes.  Poor Madelyn is buried under several blankets.

There she is!

Just a little dip in the cold water.

Picnic By the River

The weather was warm so we packed up our new babe and our very excited three and a half year old and headed out for a picnic lunch by the river.  Thankfully it was a warm sunny day.  Unfortunately it was a bit windy and Chase has become fearful of wind in the last couple of months.  Thankfully he was a trooper and with the idea of throwing rocks with Daddy he made it through lunch.

Looking for good skipping/throwing rocks.

If you look close enough you may see Madelyn laying on my lap under the blanket.

Catching Up

Wow it has really been a long time since I have updated this blog. There have been so many changes going on around here. The biggest and most important thing to share would be the birth of our daughter Madelyn Sage. She was born May 5, 2010 at 4:43 pm. She was a healthy weight of 8lbs. 4oz, and was 19 3/4 in. long.

Chase is adjusting well to the big brother role. He likes to help out most of the time with his new sister, although this morning he asked, "Why do I have to do everything?" Gosh I was thinking that I had not been giving he enough responsibility. Go figure.

We have been having a very fun summer so far. I will work sharing these adventures in a more timely manner.

Here is a picture of me a month before Madelyn was born.

Our Future Chef

Hmmm... what should I make Daddy and Mommy for dinner?

Oh this one looks good! Now what do I need...

For anyone who really knows me you know that these pictures cause me to have high hopes for a future little chef. Well, at least for someone in our house to enjoy cooking.

Snow, Snow, Snow

As I have mentioned before we really have not seen a great accumulation of snow so far this year. When we do Chase has a GREAT time exploring it. It took quite some time to get him to actually leave this mound of snow that he fell in love with.


So we finally bought Chase a sled and then we have not had enough snow to put it to use. Ugh! Oh well, we decided to load it up and go visit Mimi. She has more than enough snow for us to play in. We took Chase out a couple of times with the backpack and the sled. He would take turns between riding on my back and riding in the sled with Mimi. He had a great time! What am I saying, we all had a great time!
