Summer Living

August 15, 2010

We haven’t updated for a while, but we’re still keeping busy! Here are a collection of video and pictures wherein we:

  • Have dinner and do a short “hike” to a waterfall in Lory State Park (just outside of Fort Collins).
  • Visit downtown Boulder and play in the water fountains there. (In the video Kalyn gets squirted in the face, poor thing!)
  • Do another short hike in Lory State Park, where Kalyn get very excited about some grasshoppers.
  • Hang out at home together.
  • Visit and work in our garden.

We also just got back from another short camping trip to a local lake, but on that trip we managed to forget about half of what we needed, including the camera (and all our clothes and Mom and Dad’s sleeping bags). So, we only have a few pictures from the cell phone from that one, and I don’t know how to import those yet.

Garrett is getting super busy. He may be the grabbiest baby I have ever seen, and it is difficult to do anything while holding him. Just a minute ago I had to put him down because he kept trying to grab my mouse. He is crawling all over using his army crawl. However, he pushes up on his legs quite a bit so he might actually learn to do a more traditional crawl, as opposed to Kalyn who learned to walk before she stopped doing her army crawl.

Taking a Picture

August 15, 2010

Taking a picture of Kalyn and Garrett together is tricky. I thought you might enjoy this series of pictures where we try to get a good picture of Kalyn and Garrett together, but never quite succeed. Garrett has a quilt square on his back, which Kalyn put there because she decided it was a baby blanket. At one point Kalyn decided we needed to take a picture of her foot, as you can see. Please excuse the mess. 🙂
