Halloween 2008

























Hunter's first Halloween, he is dressed as a pirate. Arrg!


Madelynn is Tinkerbell. This is a special outfit because her mommy wore it for Halloween when she was Madelynn's age. Grandma Beth made this outift way back in 1983. Madelynn loved wearing her wings and really liked going trick or treating.

The beach in October

Papa Tony thought it would be funny for Madelynn to take a swim in the ocean... and almost gave Mommy a heart attack. That Papa Tony, he's a character. :)

Summer at the Zoo






We got a family pass to the zoo for Easter this year from Grandma Beth and Grandpa Edward. The kids love to go to the Portland Zoo. In the summer we went about every 2 weeks. We go to the zoo in the morning and have lunch, then pack up, and the kids are ready for a nap. We usually go to the zoo during the week, so since Tony is at work I have either friends or family help out with the kids. Grandma Beth, Grandma Janet, Aunt Jenny, and my friend Monica have all helped me out through the summer. Everyone has enjoyed going to the zoo over the summer.

Cracking Crab






Labor Day Weekend at the beach 2008. Grandpa Tony, Cousin Fred, and Tony went out in the ocean and caught some crab. Yummmm. They are teaching Madelynn how to crack crab.

Labor Day 2008








Wow the kids are growing up so fast. Madelynn is talking all the time and has a great imagination. Hunter is crawling and making cute baby sounds. He is very curious and gets into everything! Much more then Madelynn did. He likes to figure out how his toys work, you can tell the wheels in is head are turning. He is so smart.

Pool Time




There's nothing like taking a dip in the pool on a hot summer day.
























Hunter liked getting his feet wet, but didn't like his sister splashing him.

We love Daddy!

Oregon Coast Aquarium



Madelynn with Grandpa Tony and Grandma Janet. We took a trip to the Oregon Coast Aquarium in Newport. Madelynn had a lot of fun touching the different sea life, she even got to touch a baby shark!

Swim Lesson's 2008

8 weeks of swim lesson's for Madelynn's 2nd birthday.
Madelynn was beyond excited about her swim lessons. She had fun singing songs, blowing bubbles, kicking her feet, and jumping in the water. With a new baby in the house Madelynn enjoyed spending time with just mom and dad at the pool.
