Bennett's Gymnastics June Jubilee

Bennett had his gymnastics summer show last week and it was so fun watching him perform.... he just loves when all eyes are on him. And he's surprisingly really good.

We took a little family getaway to Bend, OR last weekend & it was awesome.  Definitely my favorite “within driving distance” destination.  We biked, walked, played at the awesome parks, ate too much, drank beer, swam and on our way there we even saw a mama black bear & 3 cubs on the side of the road. 
10 Barrel (our favorite)

Crux.... Seriously, we ate SO much.

Let the summer fun begin.

Our friend Mark was on the Wheel of Fortune so we all got together to see his TV debut.
A couple weekends ago with met up with the Hintons at Banks Lakes, and the boys couldn't get enough of the the Hinton girls.
The guys ending Father's Day with a fort campout.
Visiting the dam with friends.
Cal was obviously a little excited about seeing the cougar.
sister showdown
Someone discovered the stairs...
Soccer camp.

9 months

It's crazy to think Emmie has been with us as long as I was pregnant with her...  These last couple of months have been so fun seeing her little personality grow. And the way she loves her brothers & lights up when they come around is the absolute best. Here's what else our little miss is up to as a big 9 month old.... She's into everything... if she sees something she wants, she gets it. We're working through some major baby proofing (i.e. keeping legos out of reach and off the ground), seeing her crawl never gets old (especially when she pops her head around a corner when she comes into a new room), she still has 8 teeth, around 8 months she turned into a great little sleeper - she goes to sleep between 6:30-7 and sleeps soundly until 7 a.m. - and it's amazing, she loves naps and is really easy to put down anywhere/anytime, she's reached the age that if you take something away from her that she wants (or shouldn't have) she gets mad, her hair is very slowly coming in but she still has her one crazy hair (literally 1 strand of hair that's about 5 inches long), she loves to clap, can high-five & wave, she's starting to dance when she hears music, she likes solids but she'd much rather just drink all of her meals, she loves being held, she's long and skinny and is such a little peanut compared to her brothers at this age (they were both more than 6 lbs heavier than her at 9 months), and she's such a happy little girl... it doesn't take much to get her to light up.

9 month stats:
weight: 18 lbs (47%)
height: 28.5" (81%)
